5 Things I’m Loving Right Now!5 Things Im Loving Right Now!

Everything about The Greatest Showman!

When I say that I am IN LOVE with this movie and soundtrack, that’s really underestimating it! I love the dancing, the singing, the meaning behind the movie, just everything!! I listen to the soundtrack at least once a day!!

Floral Tub Sessions!

These floral tub sessions has been such a big hit!!! I am loving them and all of the beautiful woman I have had the honor to meet in the past couple of months!! Plus, teaming up with Pamakane of Ocean Dreamer is really a dream come true! Interested in booking one of these amazing seessions? Shoot me a message! Let’s do it! They are booking up so fast for the summer!Hawaii Floral Bath Tub Photo Shoot Vanessa Hicks Photography

Stella Rosa New Flavor of Wine- Tropical Mango!

So, I believe that its been out for a while, but here in Hawaii, I just saw it in the stores, so I am EXCITED! Mango is my favorite fruit, and if there is anything on the menu with mangoes in it, I get it!!! It’s a pretty sweet wine, but delicious!!!!

New Book!

I just got Girl Wash your Face by Rachel Hollis and I can not put it down!!! Like, I laughed at the first sentence of the book, and I can already see it changing the way I think about myself! I had heard so many good things, and they are all true! So, if you are tired of believing all the lies you tell yourself, and could use a laugh too, go out and pick this amazing book up!


My favorite airline with amazing islands!

I am so excited for all of the traveling that’s coming up for the remaining of the year! As I continue to travel to the other Hawaiian Islands, I’ll also be heading to California twice and Arizona in the fall as well! Plus, you never know what will come up!!! Did you know that I am a destination wedding photographer? If you want me for your wedding and its not in Hawaii or California, thats OK!! Let’s chat!!
