My family and I spent a couple of weeks in Hawaii this summer.   Our trip was nothing short of amazing.  I have so many stories to tell through photographs, but so little time to blog.  I want to share so much with all of you, but with the start of school, sports and activities for the kids, and work, I just haven’t been able to dedicate the time needed to effectively write blog posts.

I am thrilled to be as busy as I am.  I have had a steady flow of head shot clients, family portraits, and events to photograph, which is all good and means business is growing.   The best part about all of it is that I am getting to meet some really spectacular people.

My children are busy running cross country, playing high school football, dancing and playing tennis.  I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoy watching them run, dance, and play.  My heart bubbles with joy every time I see them working hard and having fun while doing it.   One would think that I have a lot to photographs to share with you of all of these fun activities, but, I have actually been taking the time watching them to relax and do just that, watch them.

Enough about why I haven’t been blogging and a bit about this shot.  If you haven’t already figured it out, the subject is the ocean.  I took a long exposure shot of water to create that flowing, cotton candy like effect.  I find it to be peaceful and tranquil, thus the title.  The location of the photograph is Kauai, Hawaii

To see a similar photograph but in black and white visit Monochromia for my Thursday post.  Which do you like better, the color edition, or the black and white edit?

  1. Robin, not only do I love the photo, I love the blog post. Hearing about your crazy-busy life brings up wonderful memories of those times with my kids, now all gone from the nest. As nuts as things could get, it was fun to be so involved and I’m so glad you’re taking the time to just soak it in and enjoy it all! And kudos to you on your expanding business!

    I’ve been to Hawaii once, though never made it to Kauai. Such spectacular scenery – I’d like to go back now with camera in hand. As for this shot, I definitely prefer the color – such a beautiful shade of turquoise, it just makes me feel as if I’m on that beach. Thanks for bringing a bit of “zen” to my morning today!

  2. Love this image, Robyn. I can feel the movement in it, and I very much like the transition from greys and whites at lower right to blues towards upper left. Very glad to hear your business is doing well. Adrian

  3. Love the windswept feel of freedom in this glorious shot Robyn! Well done on being in the here and now with the family, they leave all too soon enough. And of course keep up the great work with your studio, well done!

  4. The image does indeed evoke tranquility, something we all need to seek more of.
    Blog when you can; we all understand. Well at least, I do!
    I’ve been struggling to keep up as well.
    I’m just so happy that your business is growing and that you are able to enjoy your kids.

  5. Beautiful shot of the ocean. Most people wouldn’t take photos of the ocean, but I got a stack of them.

    Also, you’re living the same life like ours – staying busy and following the kids in their activities. 🙂
