The Mountains Are Calling | North Shore Family Photographer

We drive by this spot pretty much every day and I've been wanting to stop and grab some shots for almost a year now.

A few weeks ago I was smart and packed some nicer clothes and kept them in the car. The day I drove into Honolulu to grab my new Canon 5D Mark IV (screams in excitement) and my Canon 50mm f/1.2 which I've been saving for for a few years (screams even more!) ... I decided that spot would be perfect to test drive the new beasts, so we stopped.

I shot for exactly 13 minutes AND IT WAS AMAZING!
