On this solo trip to Big Island I felt completely comfortable to pull over whenever I wanted.  From a flower petal to a weird looking road and to these sheep.  And on this endless field of green I had to sneak a shot of them grazing, lookin' all furry and cute.

cloudy with a chance of rain

The mountain tops of Hawaii are usually always dusted with clouds but that's what makes them so green and lush.  I'm dying to get to master the Stairway to Heaven hike and see for myself what it feels like to be on top of the Pacific.

La Pietra

Who knew this school, La Pietra school for girls, was even in Honolulu never mind gracing the bottom of Diamond Head.  The school itself is more than just charming, it's beauty reminds you of something from Europe.  Hawaii, once again you amaze me.

These photos are from a Tori Richard shoot that I assisted.

Only slightly colored tips of white bougainvillea.  Although this flower isn't too fragrant, it's paper-like petals remind me of something sweet and delicate...and special.

hey pineapple

Every time I pass by the Dole Plantation I truly want a pineapple.   No matter how many times it happens in a day I crave a crisp, sweet, pineapple slice to accompany those hot salty days to the north shore.

Chinaman's hat

This side of the island makes reminds me of lost time.  I can't really explain it well but it makes me feel like time gets lost here and I'm okay with that.


If you can believe it this sunrise was even more beautiful than this in person.  Had to get up at literally the crack of dawn to shoot a indie movie poster at Makapu'u and this was our view on the way in.  Seriously, it takes seeing something like this to make you feel inseparable with Hawaii.

Hail Mother Nature

Experiencing Kalalau Valley was a memorable experience.  And for some it was a moment of complete and utter graciousness. 

When we hiked into Kalalau 3 years ago we knew it'd be long (11 miles in, 11 miles out) but I personally had no idea that there'd be stark naked hippies every where.  And let me tell you, trying to make nice conversation with naked people is hard to do, especially when you're trying really hard (okay not that hard) not to stare at their junk.
