  • Aloha!!!

    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.

  • We would love to hear from you! Please call, email, or facebook us if you have any questions.

The Bean Family Chronicles {Banyan’s 3rd Birthday Party, or 6 Minivans In the Driveway}

Happy Birthday to you,

Happy Birthday to you,

Happy Birthday, dear Banyan,

Happy Birthday to you!!

My sweet son, my little blonde boy, the cream in our oreo.

Your beautiful blue eyes and white hair are irresistible to me.

Your one little dimple gets me every time.

The way you ask me to cuddle before bed and give you nose kisses every night brings me so much joy.

You are a doting little brother to Noa and a caring big brother to our little Avenlea.

You have a sensitive heart and you seem to enjoy crying over just about anything.

As you start this new year of life, I am praying that God would continue to open your heart to how much He loves you.

I am praying that you will develop into the kind of boy who loves to serve others.

I pray that you seek justice,

love mercy,

and walk humbly before the Lord.

We love you so much and love watching you grow, mature, and evolve into the man you will one day become.

Happy 3rd Birthday Mr. Precious!!


 Disclaimer I feel compelled to give you: Most of these are unedited, straight-out-of-camera images.  Some are iphone shots.  I didnt want to edit 50+ birthday pictures……enjoy!


Homemade (from the box) cupcakes.  Until they’re old enough to care, we put just enough effort into parties to seem like good parents;)


Inflatable water slide, borrowed from a friend.  Best thing of the day.  Especially b/c it entertained the brothers all morning while I did party prep stuff.

6, count em, 6 mini vans!  So funny.  We all have at least 3 kids.  My brother and his wife seemed pretty hip with their sedan <3

All she cares about is stuffing her face.  She wants to make her cheeks fatter.

Tomato as big as her face.  Lasted about 3 minutes.  She’s a pig.

He’s been asking for a “kitchen present” for months.  Yay, for hand-me-downs from friends!!

“I don’t want ‘Oakea sitting by me!!”
