Bailee and I sat at her dining room, labeling envelopes for her wedding invitations, listening to music, with an overall comfortable and reflective air surrounding us.

I quickly grabbed Katie and sat her in the chair by the window as the sun began to sink below the skyline, a rushed moment before the loss of light.

Mikee was lounging in our lone chair by the door, that look of pure joy is the expression of someone who’s about to enjoy one good brownie.window light 1 RSwindow light 2 RSwindow light 3 RS

What I absolutely adore about Hawaii is the vibrant greens because of the abundance of rain we receive on this little island. Whenever I would visit family here on Oahu when I was younger, I was always in awe of how green it was. Even now that I’m living here I still can’t believe how great the blue, green, and sandy yellow color complement each other. There is so much foliage surrounding us, from all different kinds of plants. The intent of these photos is to capture a variety of greens here, with an emphasis on that color palette. I also focused on making sure that despite the harsh sunlight, I kept things under control and properly exposed so that I could really capture the colors.

When I was walking down the beach, what I saw, was the beach. I almost didn’t notice these stairs, worn with many steps and ocean breezes. Amongst the dirt and piled rocks, are these stairs, a straight, repetitive form. If you only face the stairs, you’ll miss the vibrant, shimmering ocean and ever green mountains behind you. If you only face the ocean, you’ll miss the stairs that lead you home. Two separate pieces that create the beach.
