Hawaii is my happy place. I just can't explain it. I've been all over the world but these islands are just special. Spending 15 days there was so wonderful. Trying to figure out how to make it a month next year. It just fits me. The sun, the water, the Mickey Hawaiian ice. I'm so ready to go back. @moanaevents I need some weddings there asap! #juliepaisleyphotography
I love shooting maternity sessions. I don't take on as many portrait sessions these days because of the amount of weddings we do but I usually will never turn down a chance to shoot a maternity session, especially when the session is in Hawaii! Megan is a fellow photographer and when she told me the amazing news that they were expecting their miracle baby,I couldn't wait to take these pictures for them. The whole session is amazing, will be blogging it soon but until now, here's a little sneak. #juliepaisleyphotography #maternitysession
I have teenagers. They HATE having their picture made. I kinda hate having mine made too and well the hubby, not too keen as well. BUT, this was a big trip for us. 15 days in Hawaii and I wanted to remember it. So what did we do, we went to Target, I pulled together some outfits and when I met @caitschlabachphotography for breakfast one day, I handed her my Contax and asked her to take a few pictures of us walking so we could remember this trip. Of course I got them back and immediately started tearing myself apart. My hat was too low, white wasn't a good idea SERIOUSLY? I have a picture of my family in Hawaii and I'm being so vain? SHAME on me. Because who cares if my hat is too low, I'm with my family, I have this moment on film forever and tomorrow this could all be gone. I'm writing this for all of you out there who feel the same way, stop it right now and get in pictures. Your family could care less if you need to lose weight, if you are unhappy with something about yourself because I guarantee when they look at this picture they don't complain about how I looked in that hat. Have pictures made and capture these years. I wish I would have been a photographer when mine were little, I want to always remember these moments. So let's get over our body image issues and get in pictures. Ok, I'm done, off my soapbox and now I'm going to go order this print and put it on my wall.
Oh Spring and happy brides. I'm in my happy place. @cedarwoodweddings #juliepaisleyphotography
