Do you ever feel like you’re never satisfied? That once you hit one milestone or achievement, it’s on to the next? Rarely stopping for a second to soak it in? To feel proud? I feel that way often. I’m a planner, perfectionist, and dreamer, and I have this relentless inner drive to always want more and be more. My biggest challenge is living in the moment with a patient heart for what’s to come. But over and over, this year has taught me that there are limits to what I can plan for. There are limits to what I can control. My plan may not be (edit: IS not) THE plan for my life. And maybe I don’t even know what’s the best plan for me (*gasp*). Thank God, for God. Do I really want to waste living in the here and now, feeling dissatisfied just because I don’t have everything I want, when I want it? No. The answer is no. Well, the honest answer is “I’m trying not to, and trying very hard.” As we approach the last quarter of this year, I hope you take a second to reflect on just how many ways you’ve grown since January 1, 2020. I’d venture to bet that no one saw this as the plan for their year. Maybe the growth has been ugly, or heart wrenching, or didn’t feel like growth at all. Maybe you didn’t think you’d make it to October. But you did. And given the world-flipping ways of 2020, that alone is something to be very, very proud of. Stop waiting for someone else to say it, and say it to yourself. So let’s say a collective “thank you, next” to any curveballs to follow. Thank you for refining us, thank you for making us stronger, and thank you for encouraging us to feel proud of just how far we’ve come. Clear eyes, patient hearts, can’t lose 😘

Is it boot weather, yet?! Growing up on an island where it’s a sunny 80-degrees (and tropical showers) year round, I very much appreciate California’s take on the seasons, and the beautiful shift in the foliage for lifestyle sessions 🍂 In case you missed it, I added a few new dates for mini-sessions (see highlights), and then that’ll be it! Still booking 1-hour sessions for individuals, families, couples, newborns, maternity, & engagements, but weekend availability is going fast so please reach out soon if you want to get a session on the calendar before the end of the year! 🌲 And on the topic of engagements and weddings... who’s excited for the holiday season?! ☺️💍🥂 #caitlinalohilaniphoto #pasadenafamilyphotographer #pasadenanewbornphotographer #pasadenamaternityphotographer #pasadenaweddingphotographer #pasadenaengagementphotographer #ocweddingphotographer #ocengagementphotographer #ocweddings #losangelesweddingphotographer #losangelesengagementphotographer #ocproposalphotographer #ocfamilyphotographer #anaheimhillsfamilyphotographer #anaheimhillsnewbornphotogher #anaheimhillsmaternitysession #anaheimweddingphotographer #anaheimfamilyphotographer #anaheimphotographer #tustinfamilyphotographer #portra400 #newportbeachfamilyphotographer #newportbeachweddingphotographer

Beauty ‘round every corner - for those who wish to see it 🌸

@caitlinalohilaniphoto

Just two lovebirds sharing a sunset kiss in beautiful Temecula wine country ✨ Pro-tip for your partner: Always pull him or her in for a kiss. Whether by the face or waist. It makes for an even more romantic shot! Most of my guys get very confused looks on their face when I ask them to pull their partner’s face in for a kiss - stressed about hand placement 🤪 but with some direction, demonstration, and lots of laughs, they’re acing it by the end of the night! Wedding feature coming soon to @southerncaliforniabride 💕 Venue: @randhawaranch Florist: @hcdweddings Rentals: @rusticurbanevents Gown: @bridetobecouture Tux: @mens.warehouse #caitlinalohilaniphoto #temeculawedding #temeculaweddingphotographer #winecountrywedding #riversideweddingphotographer #goodlightpresets #scbmember #ocweddingphotographer #lagunabeachweddingphotographer #newportbeachweddingphotographer #pasoroblesweddingphotographer #santabarbaraweddingphotographer #santaynezwedding #hybridphotographer #filmisnotdead #shootfilm #pasadenaweddingphotographer #malibuweddingphotographer

Peek-a-boooo! ✨ I was more than willing to travel down to Coronado Island for @mackenziereedmize ‘s family session. A family filled with so much love! From newborn photos, to 6-month photos, to a 1-year old session coming up soon - it’s my favorite to follow my families through all of the stages, and watch the littles really grow into their personalities! 💕 #caitlinalohilaniphoto #coronadoisland #losangelesfamilyphotographer #anaheimfamilyphotographer #anaheimnewbornphotographer #losangelesfamilyphotographer #ocfamilyphotographer #ocmaternityphotographer #pasadenamaternityphotographer #pasadenanewbornphotographer #pasadenafamilyphotographer #livethelittlethings #petitejoys #irvinefamilyphotographer #lagunabeachfamilyphotographer #huntingtonbeachfamilyphotographer #malibufamilyphotographer #manhattanbeachfamilyphotographer #palosverdesfamilyphotographer #babiesinbonnets #redondobeachfamilyphotographer

Beauty matters. Especially in days like these, I’m all for pausing to appreciate small details, like the beading on these beautiful satin heels from @bellabelleshoes, and finding joy right there 🌸 What’s something of beauty that stopped you in your tracks the past few days? 😌 Styling Mat: @chasingstone Florals: @wild_and_behold_florals #caitlinalohilaniphoto #losangelesweddingphotographer #ocweddingphotographer #hybridweddingphotographer #hybridphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #photovisionprints #fuji400h

Absolutely cannot wait to tie the knot with these two in a month!! 💍 So glad they finally were able to hop over to SoCal from Chicago to dip their toes in the Pacific Ocean for a fun e-sesh!

Who needs an actual trip to Paris, when Paris can come to you? 🎀😉 Taylor celebrated her 10th birthday with her gal pals in a Parisian paradise! Check out this incredible backyard transformation by @goldenarroweventsanddesign, and the amazing vendors who pulled off these Boulangerie details to perfection! Can’t get enough of this hand painted backdrop by @christopherlorddesigns 🙌🏼 Best part of the day, when Taylor took a peek at the back of my camera for her dance floor shots and said—“You’re really good at taking photos!” 😝🥰 Design/Balloons: @goldenarroweventsanddesign Florals: @penelopepotsfloraldesign Backdrop: @christopherlorddesigns Laser Cut Goods: @creativeamme Desserts: @sweetdeetails Kids Craft: @little_artist_party Rentals: @createaparty Host: @christinaanstead #caitlinalohilaniphoto #girlsbirthday #birthdaypartyideas #paristhemedparty #paristhemedbirthday #inspiredbythis #oceventplanner #ocphotographer #oceventphotographer #newportbeachphotographer #huntingtonbeachphotographer #costamesaphotographer #anaheimphotographer #irvinephotographer #sanjuancapistranophotographer #newportbeachca #losangelesphotographer #santamonicaphotographer #playavistaphotographer

These two met shopping for groceries in a Trader Joe’s. They locked eyes and the rest was history. If that doesn’t give us all renewed hope for finding love, I don’t know what will! And I don’t know about you, but it makes me feel a dire need to step up my quarantine grocery look... 🤣💁🏻‍♀️ — How did you meet your significant other? — Event design, styling, and coordination: Amorology: @amorology Workshop host: @tenthandgrace Florals: @sirenfloralco Venue: @julepvenue Rentals: @adorefolklore Tabletop: @hostesshaven Invitations and paper design: @greyandcake Calligraphy: @fourthingspaper Terrazo clay place cards: @greyandcake Cake: @heytherecupcake_ Installations and backdrops: @backupbackdrops Gowns: @elizabethdye Hair and makeup: @kcwitkamp Specialty cocktails: @snakeoilcocktail Styling mats: @locustcollection Shoes: @bellabelleshoes Suits: @theblacktux Conference: #thehybridco - #sandiegoweddingphotographer #santamonicaweddingphotographer #pasadenaweddingphotographer #malibuweddingphotographer #santabarbaraweddingphotographer #irvineweddingphotographer #newportbeachweddingphotographer #lagunabeachweddingphotographer #sanjuancapistranoweddingphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #sanclementeweddingphotographer #orangecountyweddingphotographer #orangecountyweddings #modernbride #scbmember #socalbride #caitlinalohilaniphoto #terrazzodesign #terrazzowedding

It’s gonna be a hot one today.... is ice cream even a question?!! Best eaten on a stroll through Old Town Pasadena, of course 😎🍦 — A little birdie told me that there will be an exclusive new flavor—WATERMELON SORBET—on the menu at @paradis_oldpasadena in the coming weeks. It’s vegan too! I’m on it!! 👏🏼🏃🏼‍♀️ Love the refreshing fruity flavors during the summertime equally as much as my fav, coffee ice cream! What’s your favorite? :) — #caitlinalohilaniphoto #pasadenacharm #paradisicecream #paradischarm #icecreamlosangeles #thehappynow #livecolorfully #livethelittlethings #theeverygirl #pasadenanow #pasadenalife #oldtownpasadena #explorela #socality #summervibes #lablogger #bloggerlifestyle #losangelesmommyblogger #mommyblogger #bloggervibes #communityovercompetition #darlingweekend #creativehappenings #laweeklyfood #latimesfood #pasadenamagazine #pasadenalocal
