Happy Thanksgiving! We seem to be speeding along to another wonderful Merry Christmas!!!
I have so much to be thankful for. My daughter who turned one and who has learned to walk (which, by the way, has changed the game). The outside of our fridge has been stripped clean from the 2.5 foot mark down. A new job working at the University of Hawaii-Manoa which I am just loving. Of course, my hubby, Scott, whom I just adore even though UH-Manoa football games do steal him away from me for those pesky home games every other Saturday. And I’m so thankful for my wonderful clients who have kept me so busy. I’ve been falling behind with my blogging, but I’ve been too much fun behind the camera on the weekends. I’ve had cute baby sessions, beautiful weddings, and my daughter’s first birthday party which is going to make you ooh at the overflowing cuteness.
I’ll start the ball rolling with this baby photography session with 7 month old Jude. You will recognize this chubba-licious face as he has graced the cover of my blog before. We had quite the party rolling through Kailua early on a Sunday morning. I was accompanied by fellow photographer, Malia Salmon, and Jude brought along his entourage; mom, dad, and big sister. Jude definitely worked the camera but it was dad who probably got the biggest workout of all as Jude hadn’t quite perfected sitting just yet. So, daddy Tony was the propper-upper, runner, and catcher. The rest of us were working it trying to get Jude to flash his beaming smiles but it was his protective big sis who got him giggling every time. He just absolutely adores her.
They’re such a sweet family that I’ve loved getting to know through these photos. And this past fall, when Scott and I needed to correct some electrical work in our house, I remembered Tony and Kelley and their family-run business, All G Electric. They were awesome!!! In just one day, they fixed our problems and we were able to even add some “luxuries” like a light switch on our porch so I no longer have to fumble for my shoes in the dark. It’s amazing how little touches like that can make life just a bit easier.
I can’t wait to see everyone again for Jude’s 1 year session which is coming up quickly!
