10 On 10 | March 2012 | Honolulu Photographer

So remember in January when I said I was determined to see all of my projects for the year through?  Yeah, well, that was already a big fat FAIL.  But, I picked up and moved forward and I’m going to do my best to see these projects through, even if I stumble along the way.

The last few months have been full of big changes.  Changes that have taken away from my photography time and have somewhat exhausted me to the point that I don’t even have to energy to pick up my camera on most days.  So this 10 on 10 may  or may not have actually been shot in one day.  But it’s done.  And done is better than perfect, right?  (My new mantra.)

Kaya reading first thing in the morning. She is obsessed with that Elmo book and wants to read it


Mommy and Kaya rockin’ our TOMS.


Spent the morning at the farmer’s market.  It was packed!


Then off for more shopping at Costco.  She was over it if you can’t tell.


We’ve had some gnarly weather lately.  I’m talking house-shaking thunder, lightning, and even HAIL.  In Hawaii?  Crazy!  But, the blue skies made a brief appearance.


While the little one napped I headed out into the yard with the macro for some pretty flower shots.


Post nap workout on the trampoline.


Introduced Play doh for the first time.  She loved it.  She tried to eat it.  She didn’t love the taste.  :P  She loved Play doh so much that she didn’t even want to eat dinner.  Anyone who knows this kid knows that is a big deal.  Because the girl loves her food.


Post bath potty.  It was a fail but we’re not pushing it right now.  She’ll say she wants to go then sit there and not do anything.  Then she gets bored and wants to go play.


Now that the kid’s in bed, we can all relax.  Including Ellie, who hijacked Kaya’s new blanket.  She loves to sleep everywhere but in her own bed.  Figures.


Thanks for stopping by!  Complete the circle and click on over to see what my friend Laurie at A Favored Life has been cooking up.

    Beautiful shots Christine! My mantra is “progress not perfection” but agree that letting go can be difficult.

  5. Amy says:

    Love These, Christine! The colors on the macro shots are just gorgeous! I empathize with having almost no energy for extra projects.
    Your work is lovely, as always, though!
