    Hi! This is the photography and lifestyle blog of Sheena Bean of Photography In the Light. I am a lifestyle photographer based in Kauai, Hawaii. I moved here with my family in January of 2015. My husband is the youth pastor at Lihue Missionary Church and we are raising three little world changers, Noakea, Banyan, and Avenlea Wren. This is His story, our story, and little snippets of life on a 562 square mile rock in the middle of the Pacific.

The Bean Family Chronicles {A Tale of Two Tots, or Front Porch Drama}

One of the unexpected outcomes of my oldest son being in school during the day is the sweet relationship that my younger two have forged.  When his older brother is home, Banyan tends to ignore Avenlea.  Not in a mean way, but Noa is so much more interesting to him that little sisters usually gets the backseat.  Since Noa is at school from 8-3 every day, Banyan and Avenlea have become so much closer.  They are just over two years apart, and it is fun to see how their interactions differ from the way Noa and Banyan (3.5 years apart) interacted when Banyan was A’s age.

This unseasonably warm weather has been a sweet gift and we have spent the last few days with the front door open.   With the open door comes easy access to the front porch and B and A have been enjoying their outdoor play space very much.  They were taking turns climbing off and on the little rocker when Avenlea decided that she’d rather sit on the stairs (i.e., thy to sneak down the stairs).  Once she realized that Banyan, being exceedingly opportunistic, had seized the rocker, she thwarted her plan to climb down the steps and decided to cry in protest instead.

I love to take pictures of the day-to-day moments like these.  While I think there is so much value in planned photo sessions (it’s pretty much the only way I can get all of us in pictures together), it’s little times like these that I want to remember for the rest of my life.  The way her chubby little fingers look, his skinny toddler legs in undies, her ragtag pigtails, and his shaggy hair are such a part of the fabric of my everyday life that I know i’d forget them if  I didn’t slow down and take the time to capture them.
