One minute I am deep in diapers and playing with legos and then I blink and she is 10 years old.
So surreal how quickly the years go by even though the day to day seems to crawl at times. She is an only child so of course she had 17 different birthday celebrations because you only turn 10 once. She wanted a special photo shoot to mark her entry into double digits so we found a dress at Jeans Warehouse and ordered a Haku Lei from Lulu's Leis and Bouquets in Haleiwa. I loved working with Lulu's Leis and Bouquets because they made it so easy. I was gong to drive up and talk to them in person so I called to make sure they were open. I got the answering machine so I hung up and decided to just relax on the couch. Well, a few minutes later they called me. Instead of having to drive over I was able to send a picture of the dress and inspiration pictures from previous leis from their Instagram page. They created a perfect lei for the occasion and I never had to leave my couch.
So here are my favorite images from my sweet sweet 10 year old's milestone photo session. We started at one of my favorite beaches on the North Shore. They have beautiful mountain and ocean views as well as a swing!
So many places to explore. Fallen trees and tide pools.
Hug them close and tight because they grow up so fast. I will blink again and she will be off to college.
