The Lucas family recently relocated to Hawaiʻi for work and have quickly acclimated to the local lifestyle here. And during the recent holiday season, family photos on the beach were a great way to show off their new home to family and friends across the sea.Read More
The Bennett Family had an amazing opportunity for a family vacation in Hawaiʻi as a part of their son’s wish with The Make-A-Wish Foundation. Their trip included activities and adventures that took them around the island, however one of their more important moments came during our family portrait session.Read More
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
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
Jariya wasn't looking for a large ceremony or an extravagant wedding on the beach. When it came to planning her nuptials, all she wanted was an intimate ceremony on the beach. One of her favorite spots on the island is this little cove hidden in the back of the Ko Olina Resort.Read More

14 family members on a family vacation to Hawaiʻi is not an easy task, but Leslie managed to coordinate everyone's schedule for a fun family photo session on the beach. Grandparents with the little ones. Siblings having fun on the beach. Young love with growing families. Every little moment and everything in between.
I've been back to this same spot a few times over the past couple of months, not only because it is a secluded beach location, or that it is conveniently located close to the Ko Olina Resorts, but because it is a beautiful spot with the Waiʻanae Coast in the background.

Lisa and Kevin planned a family vacation to Hawaiʻi to celebrate their wedding anniversary and coordinated a very intimate ceremony on the beach to renew their wedding vows. 20 years of marriage and a beautiful family including a 6 month old granddaughter are a couple great reasons to celebrate. We were blessed to have the entire beach to ourselves and took advantage of that opportunity to capture some great moments and family photos.

We had originally scheduled this photo session weeks in advance. Mayra was planning her family vacation to Hawaiʻi and was excited to have some family photos taken during her vacation. Unfortunately, the weather forecast was not cooperating, so we ended up rescheduling it a few times. But as the weather usually does here in Hawaiʻi, the rain cleared up for a day, giving us a perfect opportunity for family photos.
This family was so much fun to work with. The grandparents were super cute. And that toddler scowl is oh so cute.

White sandy beach, crystal blue waters, and vibrant Aloha shirt are the perfect ingredients for a great family beach photo - especially if you are visiting Hawaiʻi for the very first time. Meet the Millers and their little one Melba. Needless to say she was daddy's little girl.
Happy Aloha Friday!
Often times the best photos are found when we deviate from a set plan - so when Paradise Cove didn't work out we weren't too disappointed. The short walk around the corner took us to a little more secluded area, Milo Cove. The intimate setting was a perfect for an engagement shoot.Read More
A Country Girl and Her Boy for the City
What all started as a high school romance between two young hearts from distant sides of the island, has blossomed into a beautiful marriage. Cammy, the country girl from Koʻolaupoko, grew up running in the forest and working in her family's farm. Tyler, the ʻEwa boy from the concrete jungle, never thought he would meet the love of his life that morning in class.
They say opposites attract and in this case, they truly complement each other. How fitting to pronounce their wedding vows in a beautiful ʻEwa Beach church and then venture east to celebrate beneath the Koʻolau mountains. This was a very enjoyable wedding to have been a part of and a beautiful love story to have the privledge of telling.
