Romantic Beach Get-Away
Chris had planned a romantic vacation for his girlfriend, and promised that it would be a trip to remember. And with the proposal he was planning, it definitely was. We had picked out Papaʻiloa Beach on the North Shore as the location for his proposal because it is a very beautiful beach. It is a fairly secluded beach and a perfect spot for the sunset with the Koʻolau Mountains and Waiʻanae Mountains as backdrops.

LOCATION: Papaʻiloa Beach, Kawailoa
Waiʻalae Beach Park, Waiʻalae
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

Waimānalo Beach, Waimānalo
Chris lived in Hawaiʻi many years ago, and as he returned with his family for their summer vacation it was only fitting for him to renew their wedding vows at a place he once called home. The beach along Waimānalo Bay always was a special place, especially when the sun rises and illuminates the mountains from Makapuʻu to Kailua. Everything about this beach is beautiful and served for the perfect location for their romantic wedding vow renewals.
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
Kailua Beach, Kailua
Neyva came to visit her fiance while he was stationed in Honolulu and thought it would be a perfect opportunity to have their engagement photos taken. She fell in love with Kailua Beach and really wanted to have her photos taken at that location - which posed a slight problem. Kailua Beach is very popular and half-naked sunbathers don't make the most attractive background objects. In the end, we were able to find some great spots for their romantic beach photos and we were all thrilled with the way that their photos turned out.
