Our Vacation Photos: My Girl and Hawaiian Sunsets

Happy Aloha Friday! I hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend. We vacationed in Hawaii earlier this summer and I’m already ready to go back. Don’t get me wrong, I love Charlotte. I love North Carolina and I love the South. It’s home. But there is so much I love about Hawaii too including these gorgeous sunsets. Stay tuned for more vacation photos from our Maui and Big Island adventures. I took three cameras and used four (a not-so-funny story for another time), so there are about a million and one new family pictures on my hard drive. I just need to finish sorting through them all! For now, enjoy this sneak peek of colorful Hawaiian sunsets and my girl. They work well together. Don’t you think?!?!

Welcome to my blog! I’m a child and family photographer based in Charlotte NC.


Parents always ask, “what if my kid doesn’t listen?” My answer: that’s actually perfect. Don’t tell your children I said so, but personalities shine when listening ears fail. I welcome the silly. I want the giggles. I watch for honest smiles, real connections and stolen family moments.


This applies to your big kids and high school seniors too. Wink, Wink.
