Instagram Beginnings

Instagram Beginnings

 Last month I started an Instagram account.
I have been enjoying documenting daily moments with it
& becoming acquainted with the Instagram realm
& the use of this fun, very visual social media!

Of course, I am very excited to use Instagram for daily moments as well as “behind the scenes” & photoshoot location shots

The morning of my birthday this year I walked down to the beach before heading out to a beautiful & delicious brunch with my husband.
The # 36 is special to me & I was very excited for this year’s birthday!

After brunch in Kahala, enjoying the breeze by the Kahala Hotel & Resort’s private beach

In early September we moved into the lush, cool & very green Manoa Valley.
Above, excited to see the neighborhood by foot after our first morning waking up in the house.

Enjoying the empty space of our home

It is inevitable I would start Instagram photographing objects in our home!
Above, an especially lovely bar of soap I got in Sweden on our last trip earlier this Summer.

Our house is (for the first few weeks) almost absent of furniture.
But I have my media with me!
Above, Swedish & Norwegian mags I got on my last two Scandinavia trips (Malmö/Stockholm- July 2013, Oslo – May 2013)
Great photography & of course expanding my vocabulary!

Run of new business cards- testing out print companies

Oahu is known for many rainbows & the Manoa Valley in particular is known to abundant for rainbow sightings.
Above, our first rainbow sighting in the neighborhood.
Also memorable in that it was during my Mom’s 1st visit to our new place here!

A very special birthday gift from my Mother: Tibetan Singing Bowl

I love the sound of these chimes ringing in our home.
