Family flew in for the holidays from all around the world and Shar wanted to gift her in-laws with the perfect way to remember this special occasion. Family photos on the beach. But don’t let the classic white on blue jeans look fool you. Genuine and goofy are a couple words that come to mind when I look back at this extended family.Read More

It’s that time of the year. Time for family Christmas photos. With an abundance of beaches and tropical settings for photos, we wanted to get away from the Hawaiian norm and have these photos taken in a more woodland setting. After a quick drive up the mountains, we set up in a forest of Cook Pine Trees for these Christmas photos.Read More

How cute is this family? These two little girls were adorable and had so much fun at the beach. Maybe a little too much fun. Little ones can be tricky to photograph, as any parent can attest to. My secret - just have fun. When everyone is laughing and having a good time, we can throw out the “cheese” because we all have our natural beautiful smiles on. And if you dress up your daughters in cute clothes like this, then our photos will turn out even better!
I love the work that I get to do. Being a part of so many beautiful families and capturing the moments they share with their children is such a blessing. Especially when they are friends.Read More
It’s that time of the year again, when Christmas trees start popping before you ever started thinking about your Thanksgiving Dinner meal plans. I love this time of the year, especially as the weather here in Hawaiʻi starts to shift from hot and humid to cool and breezy. But it is also the time for Fall Mini Portrait Sessions. Whether it’s for updating your annual family photos or for sending out your Christmas cards it’s that time to start thinking about family photo sessions.
I’m am continuing to take a limited number of full Family Portrait Sessions, but I have set aside a few days for mini-sessions at a few of my most popular locations. These sessions usually book out quickly, so I recommend scheduling your family session so that we can have your Christmas cards ready in time to get them out after Thanksgiving.
Session dates are listed below. Click on the link for more information on sessions, available times, and details on how to book your session.

The Dorman boys were just that. Fun, full of energy, and would rather have spent their morning swimming in the ocean and digging in the sand. So guess where we took our photos. Smack dab in the middle of the tide pool!Read More
As a photographer, I have had the opportunity to experience many firsts. An Annaprasana Ceremony is definitely one of those experiences that I probably would not have had been invited to if I weren't a photographer.Read More
Baby Jason was born June 8, 2018 and welcomed home by a loving family. Big sister, Gracelynn and big brother, Daniel were ready and waiting to smother their new baby brother with hugs and kisses.

The MacNeil's were excited to have their photos taken off the beach, somewhere fun that showcases a different side of Hawaiʻi. So I suggested one of my favorite spots in Kāneʻohe, a lush, green botanical garden with stunning views of the Koʻolau Mountains.Read More
