On a day when the whole island of Oahu was covered in clouds and rain, we found the sun! It was literally raining the whole drive from Honolulu to Kauloa. I was so sure we were going to be rained out. It wasn’t until I was 10 minutes away from the park that I finally saw the sun shining on the mountain side. Yay sunshine!!!
I met Crystal through a photography group and found we have so much in common! She runs Saphire Memories Photography and was the awesome talent behind both my maternity portraits and Anora’s newborn portraits. She is so sweet and talented! I’m so glad we had a chance to sneak in some headshots for her! Check out her Facebook page here to see some of her work.
It was a prefect golden hour and sunset for a perfect little family! Crystal and Brandon are so sweet and Aurora is such a sassy little lady. I had a blast photographing this little family and I’m so glad they were my first session back from maternity leave! Enjoy!
We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve watched her grow and worried about everything from is she cold to is she eating enough…and it’s only been one month!!! It’s so hard to believe that it was only a month ago that I was sitting in a hospital bed waiting for this little lady to arrive. She truly is our little miracle!
I have been planning this project since that day I found out I was pregnant with her. While I would love to claim credit, I got the idea from my friend Amanda and her White Sweater & Glittery Heels Project she did with her daughter. I loved how you could see her grow and I knew I wanted to do something similar with Anora.
The cardigan is my favorite sweater (a hand-me-down from my little sister) and a pair for royal blue flats that I just LOVE. I can’t wait to see our baby grow and one day fit into them!
So here she is, our crazy haired little wild woman. Exactly one month old in the first installment of the Blue & Gray Project. Enjoy!

I can’t believe my baby sister turned 16 years old today! It seems like just last week she was 6 years old, holding my hand as we snorkeled off Sugarloaf Key. I remember her getting so worried when I dove down pick up a sand dollar and bring it up for her to see. She was such a sweet, worried little thing!
Now she is a sweet, beautiful young lady. She has such a big heart and golden personality, it makes me ashamed of the smart-ass I was when I was her age! I truly wish we lived closer and I could spend the day with her, celebrating. Between the time difference, school schedules and being a workaholic, I don;t get to catch up with her much.
I love you Riles and I really, really hope I get to see you soon! I hope you have a wonderful birthday and get to celebrate your awesomeness! This is going to be one awesome year for you, I can just feel it! Love you baby sister!
