Whew!! Getting some greenery and beaches up in this blog is a breath of fresh air since the last few have been frigid. This sweet session in Queen Liliuokalani Gardens in Hilo, Hawaii is a total dream! I had so much fun working with Levi and Shakti, they were all laughs and smiles and down for anything. We got to explore around the gardens and see some of the most amazing trees, plants and flowers. I’m still in awe of how green and lush it was! After exploring the gardens we went to Coconut Island, waded in the water and sat in the sand. Being a photographer in Alaska has many perks, but Hawaii spoiled me with it’s warm climate.
With my remaining time in Hawaii I got to do a lot of exploring, walking the beach, hiking waterfalls and eating yummy food at various restaurants (show of hands, who else loves eating good food while on vacation? I always way over spend, but my tummy is happy haha!). Hunter was working while we were there so I did a lot of wandering by myself. It was still fun though! I’m definitely going back someday , Hawaii is, after all, only a hop skip and a jump away! Also, I think “Alaska and Hawaii Wedding Photographer” has a nice ring to it 😉
Let’s go to Hawaii! (And beyond!)
If you haven’t already, go check out my Details page to see my travel itinerary and list of places I want to go (session discounts may apply!). My goal this year is to travel as much as I possible could, and with that goal has come SO many opportunities and I’m so incredibly excited about the rest of my trips this year. So let’s go ahead and fill next year to the brim with some adventures together, how’s that sound?
Also, without further ado, here is a bomb gallery of images from this gorgeous Hawaii session:
Hello hello! I’m Donna, a photographer in the gorgeous state of Alaska. I’m short, half Colombian, funny (at least I like to think so) and always up for anything! I’m married to an awesome guy named Hunter who I sometimes rope into assisting for sessions and weddings (if you’re lucky you might get a chance to meet him, he’s cool!). I love spending time with my husband, be that going for a hike or sitting our butts on the couch to watch New Girl and eat pot stickers (100% a good date night idea!). Chocolate chip cookies are my guilty pleasure, I have a girl crush on Shakira and know pretty much every song, I also have way too many half written notebooks. I’m an advocate for having fun and being yourself, always, no matter how strange you may think you are. I’ll own up to being a little random and crazy sometimes haha!
