I wonder if my kids really understand how blessed they are? Waking up with the ocean in view and adventure around every corner. I honestly don't know if we'll live in Hawaii forever, so I hope they enjoy and appreciate every day and every experience. I know that God is using all of this to make each of them into unique people, and I'm so thankful for this time in our life. My special prayer for Em, is that she will grow up with a beautiful understanding of who God is and what He has given her. So that she can live her life in response to that.
1 cabin. 21 people. 5 days. So much fun! As part of our visit to Idaho, we were able to spend some time up in Donnelly with my family.

If you'd like to catch up on my blog from the past (otherwise known as Gingersnap Photography) you can do that right here! As far as I know, things you put on the internet never really ever disappear (that's kind of scary and nice all at the same time) so you should be able to hop back in time and view past photos for as long as you like. You could even go way back to some of my first posts as a photographer, when I still didn't know what I was doing (but thought I did). Again, scary and nice all at the same time. Here's something a little more recent:)
Yay! I'm so incredibly excited to launch my new photography website here in Kailua Kona, Hawaii. After living in the beautiful mountains of Idaho for most of my growing up life, we said goodbye to everything familiar and jumped on a plane across the ocean. About 2 years ago, both Jason and I begin to wonder if God might have us move to Hawaii to help his brother with a little church he was starting. It seemed like such a far-off dream at the time, but here I am typing with a tropical breeze floating through my windows and palm trees swaying in my front yard. Sometimes I have to pinch myself!
