Living In the Lens November 12, 2013

As a mom, I’m always staring at Adele in awe at how big she is and how much she can do now. I’m constantly wondering where time went and where my little newborn has gone. Although I’m trying to live in the moment more, I’m also conscious of the fact that these moments too are fleeting and I have to capture them so I can look back and smile someday.

This week, I noticed Adele was trying to escape the bathroom by reaching for the knob. She can’t quite reach, but I ran out and grabbed my camera and made her try again to capture it. It was just so cute because even on her tiptoes she’s not quite tall enough.

Someday I’ll say “remember when you could barely reach the top of the counter?” And I’ll have this picture to look back on.

I love my posed photoshoot pictures, but I really love these ‘slice of life’ ones more. The ones that will someday paint a picture of someone’s life.

The ones I’ll look at when my baby goes to college and I miss her.

But right now, I’m enjoying her here and now. And maybe snapping some photos along the way to remember it by. That fine balance between living in the lens and living behind it.

We took Adele to get some one-year photos done today! What do you think? Is she finally starting to look like me? Or is she still 100% daddy?

My little monkey wanted to crawl away SO bad while we were taking these, but that was nothing a giant stuffed animal can’t fix! He was responsible for this smile below!

I know, it’s a lot of pictures of….us. But I love these so much, I couldn’t narrow them down!Screen Shot 2013-05-26 at 9.12.29 PM

Sorry Adele, you were originally in this photo, but we cropped you out because it was a cute one of mommy and daddy!

Ok, enough of us. We all know you don’t come to Kelocity for pictures of Irving and I. Here’s some of Adele by herself as well! You’re welcome.

A Cloudy Sunset May 17, 2013

On our last full night in Waikoloa, we decided to trek over to Buddha Point again for another gorgeous sunset. But the orange sky wasn’t in the cards for us, we were greeted by an unusually cloudy sky.

But we had a blast taking pictures and enjoying the warm air anyways. It’s still beautiful even without the sun here!

I think Adele must think the camera is my 5th appendage by this point.

Once the sun set (well, when we THINK it set… too many clouds to tell for sure!) we headed out for late-ish dinner down the street. Adele was tired, but we kept her entertained with bread and crayons.

There are few things in the world more beautiful than a sunset at Buddha Point. It’s a must-see when you’re in Hawaii. It did not disappoint. Adele was pretty tired, but she got a second wind when she realized it was a special moment to experience.

I present you: The Buddha Point Sunset in Pictures:

There it goes! Just beautiful. We took a second to celebrate our little family as the sun dipped below the earth. How lucky we are to have each other and to share that moment together. So incredibly lucky.
