Hawaiian photographer Darryl M. Stoddard wants to keep focusing on what’s important.
“I love being here and sharing this incredible moment,” Stoddards website reads.
“But I also like to be here and take a few shots, especially when I’m doing something that I feel passionate about.
It’s something I’m passionate about, and that’s a great opportunity for me to see what’s happening in my own life.”
Stoddarts Instagram is full of snaps of people and places, from a beautiful sunrise in Maui to the moment a couple is welcomed into their new home in Honolulu.
He even posted a photo of himself with his wife, Ashley, and their baby girl, Zoey.
But Stoddart has been known to go the extra mile for his work.
The photographer is known for his “Honey Badger” campaign, which encourages people to buy beekeeping products on eBay.
He also regularly posts shots of people, animals and places that capture his passion for the natural world.
“When I’m working, I’m always trying to capture that essence of the place that I’m in,” Stoodards Instagram post reads.
The photo shows Stoddars family gathered around a tree, with the caption, “What is it like to see so much in one moment?”
Stoddasters daughter, Emily, is also a photographer, but she prefers to focus her time on her studies.
She recently graduated from the University of Hawaii and is now a full-time student.
Stoodard’s Instagram page is full with photos of the beautiful weather in Hawaii, including a sunset over Honolulu.
Emily Stodders Instagram page has been a highlight of her Instagram account.
Stouds daughter, who is also currently enrolled in a college degree program, has been documenting her father’s travels and family gatherings for years.
Emily is also known for her photography, which is showcased in her posts on Instagram.
In 2014, she posted a video of her dad posing for a picture with an exotic bird in Hawaii.
Stodards wife, Lauren, has also been known for capturing moments of love and celebration in her Instagram posts.
The couple is best known for their wedding in 2016, which was filmed in Hawaii and featured Stoddastons mother, Mary Ann, as the bride.
“The honey badger is a great example of the beauty of Hawaii,” Stoudard told Business Insider.
“We love the way that Hawaii can capture all the things that make us feel special and we just wanted to capture something special and capture that moment.
And we wanted to give back to Hawaii and capture the beauty.”
Stood’s Instagram account has been an integral part of his life for years, and he loves to share the memories with others.
He often shares snaps of himself at the beach or on a hot summer day, but also shows his family and friends how much he enjoys the outdoors.
“My life has always been very outdoorsy, but I’ve also been very much into the art of capturing photos,” Stouldard told us.
“If you ever see me at a beach, it’s usually because I’m taking a picture.”
He also likes to take pictures of people at a bar or restaurant, so he has an Instagram page for all his favorite spots to enjoy some great photos.
“It’s so fun to be able to take a photo,” he told us, “and I can do that every day and it’s really fun to see the pictures that are taken, and to have those moments of happiness.”
