are you on instagram? cause i sure am!!! and honestly, i think it's the greatest thing ever. i love snapping and sharing. (it's kinda what i've always loved to do). i post loads of daily pics consisting of the current going-ons in my day-to-day life. plus lots of super cute baby pics. even a few bare baby bums occasionally. ;) but in all seriousness... if you want a closer glimpse of the way i see my life- find me and follow me on here! you'll see a wide range of pics from life as a mom, an educator, a professional photographer, an aspiring chef to images of fashion and trends and cute baby moments. i'd love for you to come along for the ride.

btw... here's a fun little moment from today. the outfit is all vintage and styled by megan beckham.

aloha from the kaona family

this was the first time, in 8 years, that this entire family had been together. i'm glad i was there to capture the growth of their fun family. they came from all over, from hawaii to new york city to salt lake. it was a windy day, but perfect. enjoy!

spring time is ideal for family photos, if you're interested in booking a session- contact me here.

happy birthday

april fools day isn't really seen as "april fools" day around here. it's first and foremost my husband's birthday. and so, all jokes aside- we simply enjoy celebrating him. today he turned the big 3-0! and even though he really didn't want to make too big of a deal about leaving his 20's... i had to do something special for him on his birthday.

and so... i contacted a friend (who makes cakes) and commissioned her to make a fabulous birthday cake for my sweetheart.

here it is!'

a words with friends/scrabble birthday cake. yes, i'm an awesome wife! :)
