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.
