You know what I’m afraid of? Mango sap, snakes, and poison ivy. You know what I’m NOT afraid of? PDA.

The ‘Golden Hour’ So you want to learn about golden hour, huh? It’s a pretty popular time of day for photographers to have portrait sessions. I’m going to tell you what it is and why we prefer this time of day to others. You may or may not have noticed that my open availability for sessions […]

We hiked to a clearing and set up blankets and pillows. Bri and T cuddled up on their forrest pallet, reading books, finding shapes in the clouds and giggling. The flower crowns, or haku’s were made for them especially for this sweet portrait session. I love that Bri set this special day up for her little lady. […]
