Magical Family

Taking family photos on the beach is one of the best jobs in the World!  Julie and her family look so great and came to our session, at Magic Island last year, with such positive energy!

Iris in Waikiki

In case you were wondering, yes, this is sometimes my office.  I have the joy of working with many wonderful clients, here in Hawaii, who are usually here on vacation.  Here are a few photos from my shoot with Iris.  She was so sweet and I love how the photos came out with this beautiful […]

Teen Fashion

This is part one of two posts with photos of these two gorgeous girl; there were just too many winners to post them all in one entry.  These photos were the last of three shoots I was able to squeeze in with hair and make up artist Stephanie LeDesma (aka Vixen Dream), for, before I moved out […]

This shoot with Carmae in Little Italy was another for my blog  The clouds were in and out but it wasn’t too crowded  on the sidewalks at the time we started shooting.  The backgrounds were nice and colorful throughout which is always great for photos.  Thanks to Joe for lighting our beautiful subject for the day!
