It was an exciting day for my 5-year-old as this was his first time snorkeling. And what better place to try than at Hanauma Bay, Oahu where the water is fairly warm and the underwater viewing rewards are many. He was so excited about seeing lots of colorful tropical fish up close in their environment.
My other son (2.5-years-old) being a little too young to snorkel didn’t keep him from enjoying his day at the beach!
What do you get when you have a cute kid, swim flippers, warm sun, and palm trees? A cool stock photograph and lots of smiles! I love it when the elements of a photo come together so nicely.
My kids never cease to amuse me. The mundane things they do often crack me up (pun very much intended).
We’re off to get our boys cleaned up after a long day at the beach.
Today we photographed at a Montessori school for images for a new website we’re also designing. I really enjoy photographing kids. They’re so honest and pure. Nothing hinders them from displaying their emotions. It makes for fun photo shoots.
I lit the entire shoot with the new Canon 600RT Speedlites. I used four Speedlites for most of the images during this shoot. The wireless radio transmitter is great for eliminating cords running all over the room. No cords for the kids to trip on. How cool is that?!
Are my sons techno-geeks? Here they were, all setup with an iPhone and laptop, side-by-side in our kitchen. I knew I had to grab a shot of this so I brought out my Canon Speedlites and decided to have a mini shoot. Speedlites are handy when you need to light up a scene for a quick shoot.
A simple trip to the grocery store is an adventure when you have a 2-year-old.
Our friendly neighbor made a yummy dessert for us the other day and my older son made a painting for her in appreciation. I’m proud of my little artist!
The catch wasn’t as big as our last outing but we had fun times!
Why is my son shopping for pink purses??
After I picked him up from school, I surprised my older son with a trip to the local river for an afternoon of fishing with Dad. Check out his big catch of the day! I had to help him haul it out of the water. I’m hoping for many more happy fishing days with my boy.
