Our Hawaiian Portrait Session

Today I’m doing something a little bit different and sharing photos I DID NOT take! I’m in a blog post on my own blog for once! So weird, right? I had so many favorites from our Hawaii session with our friend Ashley Goodwin that I couldn’t help but share them. We’ve been married four and a half years now and finally taking our honeymoon was a BIG deal to us. Having an anniversary session seemed like the perfect way to commemorate taking such a big trip. These photos are the ULTIMATE souvenir!

I also think it was such a great experience for us to get in front of Ashley’s camera! As photographers we spend so much time behind the camera we can forget what it feels like to be in front of one. Being photographed by Ashley gave me a lot of perspective on what our clients feel during their sessions with us!

Anyway, here are a few of my favorite images!! I had such a hard time narrowing it down for this post. I normally don’t love photos of myself, but it’s amazing what a talented photographer can do to make you feel and look your most beautiful! Thank you, Ashley for making me feel gorgeous!

The rest of the photos are from adventures we had with Ashley just hanging out around the islands. Just drinking rum from pineapples and island hopping. In December. No big deal!

If you’re a photographer, I HIGHLY recommend having photos done every once in a while! It’s such a good way to remember what it feels like to be on the other side of the camera! And, I think it’s important to practice what we preach, and take care to document our lives too. Life goes by so fast! I’m grateful that we will always have these photos to look back on from this particular moment in our lives!

Lastly, if you aren’t already, be sure to follow Ashley! She is so wonderful and you’ll be lucky to have her pretty photos in your feed!
