For my last trip a few months back, I forgot to pack lotion, so I ended up buying some at the store while I was there. I didn’t think much about it. The bottle was the perfect size, so I stuck it in my purse to use whenever I’m out and about. But now, every time I use it I am taken back to that city, and its sights and sounds flood my memory. Smells have a way of doing that. Thank goodness we have pictures to help jog our memories and let us relive cherished moments (we don’t have to carry around unique-smelling lotion to remind us of the adventures we’ve taken). Sometimes those photographs give us a strong urge to return to the place where all of those memories were made.
A Love as Deep as the Sea. As Big as the Mountains.
This sunrise shoot comes with a special backstory. From the East Coast, this couple was married at the base of these enchanting Hawaiian mountains. After the birth of their precious daughter, they decided to make the trip back to share the unforgettable spot and make new memories with their little one. The morning was perfect as the sun illuminated the moss-covered mountains in the background. The calm tide made the water so crystal clear that you could easily see the bottom even at greater depths. As the sun slowly made its way above the palm trees, you could tell this couple was in heaven.
I think their baby girl enjoyed it almost as much as her parents. She loved digging her feet into the sand and drawing pictures with her tiny fingers. She was amazed as the waves gently wiped away her artwork. But you could tell that even the most magical island with all of its new sights and sounds was no match for being in the arms of her loving parents. No matter what adventures this family finds themselves on, they will always be at home when they are together.
