Nicole and her fam – Hawaii photography//10/31/2014

sometimes you get the best of both worlds.
not only was I honored that Nicole (an amazing photographer in her own right — studio 3511) hired me
but she asked for photos like I like to take of my kids, in the water, doing what they love – being
the best and brightest of themselves.
with surfboards.

doesn’t get much better.

here is the story of our morning at Tongs (near waikiki on oahu) and I’m pretty sure they and their friends
stayed long after I was gone to catch some waves.

maui county fair winner – finally//10/08/2014

its a long story.
but first the ending.
i won first place at the maui county fair’s photography contest.
in the expert division — photo art.
the backstory?
its been a long time coming.
i started entering photos in that contest when my girls where say 2 and 3.
they are now 11 and 12.
and at first i won 3rd place and honorable mention in the amateur division.
i was falsely overconfident after that.
then i lost.
then i was moved to the expert division.
where i lost some more.
once i got an honorable mention for a polaroid print.
then i lost some more.
lots of landscapes and macro images were winning.
but i kept submitting portraits (guess i guess i sort of like people in my images).
this year? I submitted but didn’t even want to walk through the photo contest area
because I was so sure I didn’t win again.
but finally my family convinced me just to look.
and my girls starting yelling and ran to me and told me I won first place.
unbelievable!

i know its just a local small town county fair. but i had a personal and emotional investment
in that contest and i am so very happy to have won a blue ribbon.. finally. persistence pays.
