Guess What? {Personal}

I'm walking on sunshine, woooah and don't it feel good!!

Sooo....I have been waiting to share this with you all for sometime and I am SO excited to finally be able to tell you guys about this. I have been waiting for all the little details to fall in place, and they all are, thankfully. So, to start out explaining.

This was my first photo I took, at the age of 4. Yes, pretty terrible, first of all I cut out all the people, its the wrong angle, and I could go on. But, that's not the point, the lady in this photo (looking ever so lovely! ;)) is my godmother who I call Auntie Chris.


Well, it happens that Auntie Chris lives in Honolulu Hawaii (!!!!!) and my mom and I have been dying to visit her. It has always been my dream to go to Hawaii and I can't believe I am saying this but I am going!!! It is going to be a girl's trip with my mom, my sister, and my grandma! I am beyond thrilled and I am so thankful for this wonderful opportunity.

This was my screen saver when I was trying to convince my mom to take me to Hawaii and now I can't believe I actually get to visit!

But, it gets better, one of the reasons I am going to Hawaii is because I wanted to do shoots there. I e-mailed a few photographers about second shooting a wedding and I actually was able to arrange a couple of weddings with some very talented photographers. Yes, that is right my first official second shooting of weddings in HAWAII!!!!

I think it is so special that my Auntie Chris got to be there for my first picture, and she is another reason that I get to experience another photography milestone.

This is a travel journal I bought in NYC. I thought it was really cool how I was going to visit most of these places this year. I already went to NYC, now I am going to Hawaii.

Oh, and did I mention I am stopping by San Francisco on the way to Honolulu? Ahhhh!!!!


So to end I will not be posting for a while, but alot of posts to come in the coming weeks. I am so excited to share this experience with you all through photos (and maybe a video or too!)

My travel journal is empty, but ready to be filled with the special events of this trip.
