2014 Life Squares

2014 was such a beautiful time in my life. I spent my year exploring the gorgeous Hawaiian islands, swimming the big blue sea, having mainland adventures full of laughter with dear friends, collaborating on inspiring photo projects, and best of all, growing our little family of two into three with the birth of our amazing daughter Sunny. Here are some of my favorite scenes from the year taken with Instagram. See more of my journey @oceanelyse.
