Ala Moana Beach Park, Honolulu
First time visiting Hawaiʻi? What better way to remember such an amazing vacation than a fun photo session on the beach.
Karin reached out a couple months ago to set up a time for photos with her husband, and I was excited to recommend a few great ideas for their photo session. Karin and her husband Nathan were so cute together. They are the type of couple that naturally has fun together and truly love each other - which makes my job easy. Just see for yourself
Kahanamoku Beach, Waikīkī
Honeymoon + sunset + white sandy beach = perfect opportunity for romantic photographs.
Rock and Lia were here in Hawaiʻi on their honeymoon and I was over excited to photograph this beautiful couple. The two were so in love and a lot of fun to work with. We made our way down the beach and finished up our photo session at the Ala Wai Boat Harbor just in time for the sunset. I am often hesitant to walk across the jetty at the harbor during photo sessions because it isn't the easiest to walk over. But when I asked Lia if she was up for the challenge, she immediately looked at me with an affirmative look and said that she was an island-girl - of course. I love couples like them, so easy to work with, and so much fun to spend time with.
The streets of Kakaʻako and its wall murals create a fun and lively setting for a photo session. Walking around with Denise and Al was nothing short of fun and lively. This beautiful couple was a lot of fun to work with and we had a lot of great laughs during our stroll through Kakaʻako. After taking in all of the color and artwork, we made our way to the beach to wrap it up with our feet in the sand and our sun in our faces.
I decided to put together a short list of my favorite spots. Whether you are visiting and looking for some photos of your family while on vacation or lived here all your life, I hope that this list can help you prepare for your upcoming portrait session.Read More

We decided to get some family photos at the beautiful Kapiʻolani Park in Waikīkī. The gorgeous trees and Dillingham Fountain made for a fun and playful location for the little ones.
