One of my FAVORITE things is a family film. As a photographer, I obsess over getting just he right shot to turn into a beautiful image my clients will be just as obsessed with. But videos add a realness to a session that you can connect a little deeper to...Read More
One of my favorite parts about shooting in-home sessions is that I immediately get a sense of who my clients are when I am in their home. I see the people who are most important to them in the portraits hanging on their walls....Read More
Cuteness overload on this sunflower session! My friend Allison and her family met me out at the sunflower fields for a mini session. First of all, Allison picked out the best outfits....Read More
Watching another artist at work is always an honor. As artists, when we work we feel exposed, out there, vulnerable. I know when others watch me work, I sometimes want to hide. Which is why I was very excited to watch Dana as she threw some clay....Read More
Candice and I grew up about 15 minutes from each other in a small town in Florida. As adults we both lived here in Hawaii and me "met" on...Read More
When Carline said she wanted to do her session outdoors, I was super excited. I have been scouting all over Oahu to find places to shoot, which is tricky for boudoir photography, there are always people in the pretty spots! But I think this spot was just perfect...Read More
When I met Kari and Brad in their vacation treehouse, it was like meeting old friends. I was very excited to be shooting their (delayed) honeymoon session on the North Shore of Oahu. They were vacationing and contacted me to capture a portion of their "honeymoon". When a client books a couples session with me, I always ask them their love story. This is it told by Kari:Read More
There is a stronger connection to video. It is much easier for her to see her own mannerisms in the video or recall the actual moment we took that shot with video, making a stronger connection.

You could really feel the love and the passion between them. I got to just step back and really capture the energy between them, which made the session just incredible.Read More
Did the boudoir experience change anything for you?
I think the boudoir experience did change some things for me. It made me feel beyond sexy and absolutely beautiful in my own skin. I would definitely do another photo shoot with Cheyenne, as she made the entire experience incredibly fun and awesome!Read More
This session.... it stole my creative heart! There is nothing a photographer loves more than...Read More
By now if you have had a session with me, or you follow my work closely, you know I do what I do to help empower women, to help them love themselves, to help them embrace their bodies exactly as they are. I don't allow, "well maybe if I lose a few pounds..." or "Well I love my body, except for these stretch marks". If you say something like that during a session with me we will talk about how amazing your body is with those curves or how you earned those stretch marks. My goal is...Read More
I loved working on this session. Jadi and I shot at the PERFECT time of day to get the beautiful light that just barely kisses the skin...Read More
