Her first bike

Not too long ago, I discovered consignment shops in Hilo, particularly the ones for babies.  They are an amazing thing!  You can get so many cool stuff that were already used but in good condition.  Many of the things in the store are items that aren’t sold in Hilo and you would need to buy it online at full price.  Downtown Hilo has one called Tiny Bubbles located in the Rainbow-Jo store on Kilauea Avenue.  We stopped in one time and found this really cool Radio Flyer trike.  We just had to get it for Ella!  Here she is enjoying her first “ride.”

A few years back, my husband James and I photographed this couple and their wedding.  It was so nice to photograph them again, this time with their handsome baby boy.  Patrick and Renee are so proud of him and it definitely shows through!

 Thanks Renee & Patrick for letting me capture your beautiful family!

Earlier this year my husband, baby, and I stopped in to a local baby boutique and met a cute young couple expecting their first baby.  We both listened in on a “diaper talk” explaining the ins and outs of cloth diapers.  A few months later, the expectant mom calls me up and tells me that she gave birth to a healthy baby boy and that she would love to have her newborn son photographed.  I was so excited to hear the news!  Here he is at 2 weeks old.

Babies grow way too fast.  Seven months have gone by and Ella can now sit on her own and happily entertain herself.  What a fun age!  I am enjoying every minute of it.

Introducing into the world, baby Ella!  She was born at home to two loving parents at 8 pounds 12 ounces.  So healthy and so strong.  Here she is at 5 weeks and 4 days old.  The best part about it all is that she’s mine.  <3
