weekly interrogation: Wendy Laurel!

May I introduce Wendy Laurel! She is a fabulous photographer in Hawaii (jealous? I know I am!), along with a slew of other things... Wendy is also co-creator of Let the Kids Dress Themselves (I wrote about it here), a breath of fresh air in the photo world:) It is plainly evident through her work and interactions with her that she is a fun, colorful, delightful person and I'm so excited to share her with you today!
