What would you like written in the sand?

Are you looking for a unique wedding, graduation or birthday gift?

What about a special way to memorialize a loved one or celebrate a new life?

Home ~ A new beach I discovered ~ Jeanne, the Isl Keeper artist

Each trip, I say I have too many orders & need to scale back, so last time in April I did 105 photos. But somehow, this trip I did 174!!  It was all crammed in over 3 sunsets & 1 early morning.
Okay, so seriously, I need to scale back because it dominates my time too much, but mostly because I do not like to be that rushed. Each one has a special meaning & most have special requests, so there is no way to adequately take the proper time needed for each name, which is truly a person.
In some cases though, I have pet names too.  I did 5 pet names & 2 that I don't know if they were pets & didn't have the nerve to ask.  But the names made me sure think they were, of course they could be nick names too.
****   Remember, photos for soldiers families are for FREE, Post Pals (children with cancer)/illness are for FREE, couples getting married, pets, businesses, in memory of anyone you love, and in celebration of anyone you love too are $15.
I do collages of any photos you'd like including the one in the sand in the grouping.  If you want an ultrasound photo or couples photo with a sand picture, that is great with Hawaiian flowers & sunset pictures.
I'll post some later, but in the meantime, you can put "collage" or "collages" in the search bar & many will come up for you.
Hubby turned around after being home from this HI trip & is now in California teaching.  He is gone way too  much, but he loves his job & it's always good to have a job & medical benefits.
 THE NEW BEACH!!  Omg!  It's called Ko Olina & is in the west side of Oahu. It's spectacular, remote, peaceful & perfect for photos.  It does take about 1 hr in traffic to get there, but well worth it.  I have many, many Ko Olina photos to show you & when on Oahu, I'll use that beach as much as I can.  When on Maui, I try to always use a beach in Kihea. 
Do any of you have a beach you'd like to share with me?  Anything in California you love?  I liked Oceanside, but I'm sure there are so many I don't even know about in both HI & CA, but I'd really love to hear about them.
I've updated many photos on my Facebook page, but I'll also post here.  I have been hearing from families that they are not receiving all the pictures I send.  I have to send one at a time because they are high resolution & each takes a few minutes to take off from  my computer, so I'm sure I've stressed out my computer's "send" file.
I met with Jeanne, the lady who makes the Island Keeper jars.  We chatted at Starbucks at a huge mall called Ala Moana mall. It's an amazing place where you could spend the whole weekend & still have new shops to visit.  Jeanne has another size IK jar I'd like to make available as a choice with the small 3 inch one.  If you don't know about the IK jars, please see my favorites section.  They are perfect for sand, shells, army dog tags, mementos of any kind.

You wrote a lot of names! I def think you need to be able to enjoy your visit and take less names. Thanks for doing mine! I appreciate it!

When we went to the Big Island there we only went to 1 beach and I don't know what it was called. We were at a small alcove behind some really nice houses. It was perfect for the girls b/c they were only 10 and 11 months at the time.

I know I've been to Waikiki and Sunset on Oahu and Poipu on Kauai. I can't remember the names of the others.
