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. There is so much love in this family that it is obvious to see in every photo. Moments like these are so special and I am so blessed to be able to capture these newborn moments forever.Read More
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
Hoʻomaluhia Botanical Gardens, Kāneʻohe
Earlier this month, I just wrapped on another great photo session from our Christmas, 12 Days of Giving promotion - a free engagement session and complimentary hair and makeup by Reveal Hair and Makeup.
Tina and Ola are both from the east side of Oʻahu and wanted to have their engagement photos taken with the majestic Koʻolau mountains as their backdrop. It rains often in Kāneʻohe, so any photo session on this side of the island will most likely be partly cloudy with a chance of showers. This didn't deter our photography plans, however it did create a very magical setting.
Mahalo to Allison and her team at Reveal Hair and Makeup for making this amazing photo session happen.
I'm not familiar with many places in Hawaiʻi yet alone the country where you can walk through a beautiful tropical garden alongside a pristine lake, turn around and take in breath-taking views of staggering cliffs and mountainsides. But I think the best part of taking family photos at the Hoʻomaluhia Botanical Gardens are the ducks that can be found at the lake.Read More
Four generations of the Waddell Family spent their family vacation at Kāneʻohe MCBH located on Mokapu Penninsula. This area of Oʻahu is particularly beautiful because of its location a few miles out into Kāneʻohe Bay. The beaches are pristine and the Koʻolau Mountains create a gorgeous backdrop for any photo shoot.Read More
He Punawai Kahe Wale Ke Aloha
Love is really a mysterious concept. We may think we know what we mean when we speak the words "I love you". Often time these words are overused and misused, and people think they are feeling love when they are actually feeling something else.
Standing in the presence of Kaʻapuni and Jeremiah, you can feel the true meaning of love. The patience and kindness they show towards each other is nothing short of genuine. It reminded me of the ʻOlelo Noʻeau - "He punawai kahe wale ke aloha" (love is a spring that flows freely).
Love is boundless and best when given freely and abundantly to everyone.

Lauren will be the first to admit that when she first met Steven, she never saw herself at the end of wedding aisle, yet alone walking happily hand-in-hand. It was Steven's honesty, patience, and true friendship that helped her see in him the man of her dreams.
What better setting for such a beautiful love story than the majestic Koʻolau Mountains at the Koʻolau Ballroom. Watch as they share their friendship and love for each other at their beautiful wedding ceremony.
