Usually I post about health related issues but I gotta mention our family photographer. She does all outdoor photos anywhere on the island of Oahu. Here’s her bio from her website:
I’m Liz, and it is lovely to meet you! I’m a 29 year old natural light photographer based in Kailua, Hawaii. While photography has been my chosen work since 2008, it hardly seems like it, since my biggest passion is to spend time with PEOPLE! What better job is there than to create a work of art out of the beautiful moment I see unfolding before me? I’m so blessed to be able to combine my love of people with my love of capturing moments. I’m a lifetime learner, and want to always be developing my understanding on both subjects. You can call me at (808) 201-0875
What do I love? Lots of people, lots of things.
My Hubby. My tall-blonde-and-handsome husband who I met during college in 2004. Yes, he swept me off my feet, and still does, and we’ve been married almost 8 years (holy smokes, how old am I?!).
My Littles. I’m in absolute, irreversible love with my two little boys, Truitt & Brave, and don’t mind being outnumbered a bit. We jump in every puddle we see, play endlessly with Hot Wheels & Legos, play lots of hide-and-seek, boogie board & surf in the ocean, and love to go on family hikes. I wouldn’t trade my 3 boys for the world.
I love the One who gave it all for me and made it possible for me to live abundantly, freely, and fully- my Jesus.
My youth group girls. They are supposed to be learning all kinds of deep stuff from me, but goodness, I think I learn more from them.
Raw cookie dough. I really love raw cookie dough. I love it too much actually.
I love traveling! Which will not happen for a while since I have two Littles under three… But someday!
My friends. A girl HAS GOT to have a solid group of girlfriends. It’s where encouragement, joy, laughter, honesty, and love all get to collide abundantly.
I love sweet tea, the smell of rain, mountains & ocean, big earrings, words, the smell of fall leaves and real Christmas trees (I think I’m living in the wrong state…), reading, jumping off of cliffs into the ocean, adventuring to unseen places in the islands, end-of-day sunlight, and many, many other things.
…I DON’T love cooking or gardening or knitting or reupholstering or coffee… I don’t even really love crafts. That’s all there is to say. What kind of mom doesn’t love crafts, right? The “artist” in me clearly puts all of its energy into photography and nothing else! Sorry kindergarten, this mama won’t be making a house out of popsicle sticks. *For the record, I do love PEOPLE who love crafts, and I’m in awe of your abilities! I think to myself, “GO YOU! That’s awesome!”
A bigger glimpse into my life can be found on my blog if you want to follow our family’s adventures.
Enough about what I love- I want to meet YOU and find out what YOU love. I believe every person has been created with a purpose, which means we are all quite different from each other, which makes this “life” thing so much fun! Beauty can and will be found in every person I photograph, and I would love nothing more than to get to know your heart, while giving you pictures that reflect the very beauty of your life.
Or here’s a video of some of her work!
