A Big Move During a Pandemic

As much as my kids have struggled in response to the pandemic, my heart breaks for those who moved to Hawaii just as the world was shutting down. A new home and a new school can be daunting enough but then to be isolated and unable to make new friends can feel impossible. Fortunately, there are puppies in the world! Audrey found great comfort in her new friend and companion, a tiny terrier mix. It seemed like there was a puppy boom in Kailua at that time with little bundles of cuteness on walks and rolling on the sand. This happy creature was making long days of Zoom school tolerable and had brought a big smile to her face.

Sunrise Rainbows

I was only able to photograph a small number of families in 2020, but each of those felt extra beautiful as if the world cranked up the beauty meter to compensate. It was a little bit of magic to help in a difficult time. We met for a sleepy sunrise at Makapuu Beach Park. The breeze felt light and fresh and not strong enough to disturb the perfect waves rolling onto shore. They crashed against lava rock in big displays of power as we explored the surrounding dunes and tidepools. As the sun began to warm us, we decided to jump in the perfect blue water. As if in approval, a big rainbow spread across the sky. A perfect end to our session.
