In what has kind of become a tradition, I spent a winter/spring week in Hawaii. For 3 of the last 4 years there has always been a reason to venture to the islands. This year there were several reasons. I needed to get some stock photos for the class I am teaching in a month, so I brought a friend/model with me...I also needed some sun with my family. We went to Oahu to visit friends who have a 2 year old so we could meet her and introduce her to our 1 year old. My son fell in love with her and more importantly, I was able to grab some incredible shots while hiking, beaching and enjoying island time.
