A Mom and her Kiddos | North Shore Oahu Session

This session was such an honor to photograph. I connected with Katherine through an organization I am a part of called Magic Hour. We are an organization of photographers who volunteer their time and resources to individuals and families fighting cancer. 

I joined Magic Hour out of a desire to honor my friends and family who have lost their battles to cancer.

This session brought me so much joy, because Katherine and her family were vacationing on Oahu in CELEBRATION OF HER REMISSION!!! How awesome is that?!

Thanks for trusting me with your photographs, Katherine! I absolutely loooved working with you and your family! <3


Magic Hour operates across the country. Do you know a person or family who is fighting cancer or has recently achieved remission? Refer them to Magic Hour. They'll receive a free photo session from a photographer near them.

A beautiful natural maternity session | Evelyn + Austin + Baby S

This sweet couple has been a part of lives here on the island since we arrived, and we are so so so excited to watch them become parents! Evelyn + Austin — CONGRATULATIONS you two!!!! :) Brian and I can't wait to meet baby girl!

In organizing this session, Evelyn told me she was wanting her photographs to have a natural look to them and she showed me the dress she was purchasing. I immediately thought of this place. I love the neutral colors paired with the soft pink pop on her dress and I think the colors work really well with their skin tones. Also, this LIGHT was phenomenal! That day the sun went all the way down to the horizon, with no clouds to cover the view, and as a result we utilized this shady spot to achieve some rim lighting. I love how it the light accentuates her perfect belly and and the sides of their faces. 


Happy Birthday Big Guy! | Declan

Jennifer was one of the first people who befriended me on the island. She is one of the most bubbly, friendly, well traveled and well spoken person I know, and whenever we hang out I feel like the time just flies we laugh so much!! She is also insanely good at telling stories, and one night she told me about the birth of their son Declan. She had me on the edge of my seat the entire time! Declan was born very premature and could fit into the palms of their hands the night he was born! It is scary story with a happy — not ending — but beginning, if you will, of this sweet, playful little boy! This is a story that I want to tell, from beginning to end, and I can't wait to share the full story with you.

In the meantime, he is turning THREE this weekend, and while this footage was filmed when he was 2.5, I just wanted to share a snippet of our film session (before the full film is ready), to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIG GUY! Here's to your best year yet! <3 

I loved putting this video together. It is so fun for me to edit down my footage. I love searching through longer pieces to pull out the golden snippets. Some of my favorite moments are seeing his funny little toddler run, his infectious laugh, the scene with Declan on his momma's back and his little dance at the end with Grandma singing the song.
