Hawaii Styled Shoot

It’s a new year! I just turned the big 3-0, we just moved into a new house, I just finished updating my NEW BLOG-SITE and I am filled with aspirations and goals. I figured why not start the new year off with some pictures I took in Kona, Hawaii. Why not? I’m sitting here in the dead middle of the freezing pacific northwest winter. We have had record lows which resulted in pipes freezing and bursting all over. We lost heat, water and spent days trying to get the new house “organized” and “livable”, so gosh darn it I just want to sit here and re live Hawaii. I want to shift my thoughts to new beginnings and sunshine.

It was a dream to set up this shoot and work with amazing vendors. I met Rachel, who is the owner of Vintage and Lace wedding planning. She was 100% the inspiration for this shoot. Her taste is superb and she also modeled with her husband as part of the wedding party. We hooked up with an adorable wedding dress boutique called Something Blue. Rachel and I hand picked the dress we wanted for this shoot. We went with the high low style and I absolutely loved how it flowed and matched the style of the shoot. Erin Brooks who is such a great friend and amazing lady and owner of Serephine let us use some of her beautiful pieces for the shoot. The rest of the vendors are  listed below.

So who is with me?  Don’t let the rain get you down. Think of that happy place, close your eyes and soak up the sun and smile because you know this year is going to be great.
