Jessica & Jason visited Hawaii to celebrate TEN YEARS of marriage and left their cute kids in Michigan 😉... doesn’t it sometimes seem like our culture is always focusing on what’s trendy or the next best thing? I think that’s what’s so refreshing about people like J&J... working at something for years, being committed and in it for the long haul. So glad we could meet up and give them memories of this huge milestone! 🎉
It is difficult/BORING for most kids to stay still and smile for the camera. This cutie did such a good job, it was only fair we should take a break and play with some bubbles 💙 • • • #oahu #oahuphotography #oahuphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #hawaiifamilyphotographer #hawaiifamilyphotography #love #life #bubbles
How sweet are these two? 😍They were such a fun pair to shoot with ! 📷 • • • #oahu #oahuphotography #oahuphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #hawaiifamilyphotography #love #life
A few years ago we had the privilege of photographing Vai & Mark’s weeklong wedding on Maui 🌸 - this time they came back with a baby on board! It was so fun to catch up, share stories (we are due just a few weeks apart) and photograph them again💛 It was pretty dark by the time we remembered to take a group pic but Reese set up the timer and made it happen, just like everything else during their shoot! His shorts are soaked from the ocean - the guy always does whatever it takes to get the right angle😂💪
Camera Bags. First of all there are literally thousands of options, so many it's scary. Do you like a side bag like a satchel or a back pack? How many cameras do you use? Do you bring extra lenses? Are you a mom and also need room for diapers, snacks, and the other 20 million mom things? Are you a landscape photographer and need a spot for your tripod? Figuring out your gear needs is the best start. Make sure you pick something comfy and that will protect your gear. I use House of Flynn backpacks, I love there water resistant material because I'm at the beach for my sessions. I also love their rucksack because I enjoy hiking and there is a spot that I hook my tripod on and I can add extra things in the top pouch that's more for hiking. #camerabags #education #photographer #photography #oahufamilyphotographer #oahuphotographer #oahu #hawaii #kaneohe #kailua #honolulu #kaneohephotographer #kailuaphotographer #ig_oahu #mykailua #oahufamilyphotography #lifestyle #emotional #storytelling #canon #dearphotographer #militaryspouse #fun #lifestylecollective #hilife #oahuportraitphotographer #oahumilitaryphotographer #hawaiifamilyphotographer #clickmagazine #honoluluphotographer
So I don't usually recommend snacks during a session, but they are a good backup tool. For example last year at my holiday minis a toddler was being his usual self and wandering around playing, but Mom wanted a shot of them sitting together. So he had some cookies! :) Everyone was happy. Obviously don't bring a shaved ice or Cheetos or chocolate, I mean unless its for me... ;) but something not so messy is good. #tipstuesday #oahufamilyphotographer #oahuphotographer #oahu #hawaii #kaneohe #kailua #honolulu #kaneohephotographer #kailuaphotographer #ig_oahu #mykailua #oahufamilyphotography #lifestyle #emotional #storytelling #canon #dearphotographer #militaryspouse #family #children #fun #lifestylecollective #hilife #oahuportraitphotographer #oahumilitaryphotographer #hawaiifamilyphotographer #clickmagazine #honoluluphotographer #dailymotivation
While it doesn’t really feel like fall here in Hawaii. It was just starting to feel like fall when we were visiting back in Wisconsin. A few trees had turned colors a bit early and it was exciting to catch a glimpse of fall while we were there. I have missed fall most of all while we have been living in Hawaii. 🍁🍁🍁 Isn’t this family so cute? Happy first fall little Simon. 💛 . . . . #clickinmoms #storytellingmama #thehonestlens #documentaryphotography #dearphotographer #thesweetlifeunscripted #ourcandidlife #candidchildhood #thegallerycollective #thedocumentarymovement #lifestylephotography #thegalleryoflight #thenarrativesociety #thebloomforum #mom_hub #hawaiiphotographer #lettherebelight #hawaiimagazine #beunraveled #clickmagazine #hawaiifamilyphotographer #smalpresets #808 #hawaiilife #hilife #oahuhawaii #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #northshoreoahu #fall
Sweet little beach babe. ❤️
The tickle technique is definitely a favorite of mine. It brings out the real in everyone!!❤️❤️❤️
Sundays are my family days. We have two modes either couch potatoes or we are all over the island adventuring, nothing in-between. 😍 In March we checked out the Lyon garden area, and it was stunning. It was myself and my three little's, one of which forgot her shoes, one was in the ergo, the other isn't a fan of rain. We spent a lot of time hiding under trees, but had a blast!! If you're on Oahu or visiting, check this place out! #oahufamilyphotographer #oahuphotographer #oahu #hawaii #kaneohe #kailua #honolulu #kaneohephotographer #kailuaphotographer #ig_oahu #mykailua #oahufamilyphotography #lifestyle #emotional #storytelling #canon #dearphotographer #militaryspouse #letthembelittle #children #fun #lifestylecollective #hilife #oahuportraitphotographer #oahumilitaryphotographer #hawaiifamilyphotographer #clickmagazine #honoluluphotographer #hikingoahu #mylife
“ - Don’t compare yourself to other mothers... we are all losing our shit! Some are just better at hiding it than others! - 🌊 Can’t tell here, but 20 minutes before this photo, I was ready to leave Mila in Hawaii forever! And if you look closely, Tyson’s soaked in this pic bc he decided it’d be cool to get fully submerged in the ocean right before we were to get on a plane to come home. Fun right? 🌊 Yeah, I lost my shit a few times during our family session with LucieXYZ Photography, but you can’t tell here bc I’m hiding it pretty well right? Obsessed with this years family photos, btw. 🧡 “ - Stephanie Scheffer, CA ____________________ Words of wisdom by my client. I totally agree with her statement of us moms loosing our💩. The only difference is, that not all of us can look this graceful while doing it. 😆

Stay tuned this week and I will show you the pull back. 🏖 . . . #clickmagazine #hawaiifamilyphotographer #clickinmoms #oahuhawaii #oahuphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #hawaiiphotographer #hawaiivacationphotographer #oahulife
It’s been a natural transition for us to photograph more families as we start our own! There’s something about kids, their sense of wonder and exploration that comes alive in Hawaii🏝 Whether it’s at a beach or house or actually in the water (we got asked to photograph a family doing surf lessons the other day!)🏄🏽‍♂️ there’s always so many moments of connection to save. Even through the crazy, cause kids are definitely crazy...but they meet their match and love “crazy uncle Reese”😜

It’s Sunday and I’m watching Hook. 👏🏼 It has nothing to do with this beautiful image but whatever. 🤣❤️
Meet Otto! It's not very often I do pet photography, but sometimes I just can't resist. I mean, just look at this sweet face! . #dogs #petphotography #mydog #oahuphotographer

Today I want to tell a story. When I was 4 my Dad taught me how to use his camera, then on my 5th birthday I got a camera! Now here I am at 28 a photographer and teaching workshops! So high five to Dads and parents for inspiring children and helping lead them toward great things!!! Here are some recent father's day sessions!⠀ #fathersday #activeduty #activedutydad #oahufamilyphotographer #oahuphotographer #oahu #hawaii #kaneohe #kailua #honolulu#kaneohephotographer #kailuaphotographer #ig_oahu #mykailua #oahufamilyphotography #lifestyle #emotional #storytelling #canon #dearphotographer #militaryspouse #family #children #fun #lifestylecollective #hilifehawaiifamilyphotographer #honoluluphotographer
It’s so easy to capture those mommy and baby moments but the daddy and baby/kid ones are just as great, and even better.
I absolutely love color but I LOVE black and white.
Me and Dad! . #sons #fathers #fatherandson
The only time it’s okay to love those adorable little back rolls. How squishy is this baby? Oh my gosh... there is nothing better!!
It’s not always about the babies and the kids... takes something to make that happen.. this is just a highlight of where it all begins. ❤️❤️
Just this beautiful pregnant mama and some north shore action. ❤️ I wish I could get out to the north shore more often. It’s so beautiful. Life... and traffic. Darn you Hawai’i traffic!
Maybe I'm biased but when your first official family photo looks like this... I think things are off to a great start! :-) . #gamilyportrait #myfirstyears #hawaiivacation
Anyone else do this with their babies? Close your eyes and just breathe in their little baby scent? It might be the best smell and the warmest part of love that exists. ❤️
It’s so funny to me when I photograph babies (who were born in Hawaii) that hate the sand. Like they cry if they get any sand on their feet. 🤣🤣🤣
Let’s talk about some quick tips! 1- Who isn’t happier on a full tummy? 2- Let me work on pulling a natural smile, 3- Sometimes the best images are those candid ones. 4- Always remember to have fun !!! . . . #sessiontips #iwishiknewthis #momtips #igmoms ##fresh48 #laboranddelivery #luckywelivehawaii #oahuphotographer #oahuphotographer #oahuphotography #oahuphototours #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #oahumaternityphotographer #oahumaternityphotography #maternityphotography #honoluluphotographer #honolulumaternityphotographer #maternityphotography
