Let’s kick off the Friday Fives Blog Series for 2018!!

5 Things I'm Loving So Far in 2018- Vanessa Hicks Photography

  1. The hubby and I spent an amazing 48 hours in Kauai the first week of 2018! All I ever talk about is my love for Kauai, and he hadn’t been (well, he went to play at the golf course that’s right outside of the airport, and then came right back! Went a whole 2 miles!), so our Christmas gift was Kauai! The first day we explored the island, and the second day, it was the amazing Na Pali Coast Line tour!

  2. I have got back into running! This was a big thing for me for my 2018 goals, as I haven’t ran a half marathon in almost a year!! The move to Hawaii really put my workouts on the back burner ( on the flip side, my hubby lost 59+lbs this year, so this is totally my fault). But, I signed up for my 22nd half marathon in April, and I am already loving how I am feeling being back out there!

  3. We have added 5….yes FIVE amazing couples in the past 10 days!!! You can tell its engagement season and I love it!! So many amazing couples for 2018 and even some for 2019!!!! Let’s bring on all of the love!!! #vhbridesHAWAII Wedding Photographer Vanessa Hicks Photography
  4. I started my expansion of my brand!! I wanted to offer education for other photographers, and I started that this week by being a speaker at the Creative Launch Summit!!! I spoke about tips on how to create a monthly blog calendar, and it went great! Missed the online conference? Don’t worry!
