Military Photographer | Jessica & Gemma

Jessica is an absolute sweetheart whom I met at UH while we were enrolled in a Spanish course. Just from the interactions I had with her in class, I could tell she was going to be an amazing mother. I later found out that her husband is also in the military and I could not be more in awe of how wonderfully she has kept her family strong while he is away. I had a great time shooting her maternity photos near Diamond Head. She had an amazing pregnancy figure! Funny enough, not very long after I had finished up her maternity photos, Jessica delivered beautiful little Gemma. I was so happy to get to do her newborn photos. This little girl is definitely going places, as evidenced in her froggy moves when we were trying to set her up for photos. Watch out mommy and daddy! I definitely can't wait to see this little one grow!

Wedding Photographer | Julaine + Greg

I had the pleasure of second shooting a wedding at the Sheraton Waikiki with the lovely Kricia Morris of Kricia Morris Photography. The ceremony and reception were beautiful, intimate family affairs, but I also loved seeing the bride and groom interact together while their photos were taken. Julaine and Greg both looked amazing and I wish them all the happiness for their future together!

Military Photographer | Heather + Ben + Evelyn

I met Heather when we both participated in the Honolulu March for Babies 2010. I was so excited to hear that she was expecting, and then even more excited to meet the new addition to her family. Little Evelyn has a lot of love from both mommy and daddy. I hope to see this cutie again soon!

Military Photographer | Zhalika + Benjamin

Zhalika and Ben were a pleasure to photograph. After rain threatened our first shoot, we picked up where we left off at another location. These two are naturally great in front of the camera, keeping with their affection towards each other off camera. They had me laughing throughout their session and I definitely hope to work with them again!

Aloha kakou!

Personal | Website

After a long struggle with moving domain hosts, a revamped website went up. Still simple, clean, and to the point, but with more organization! While uploading images for the site, I realized I am hungryhungryhungry to shoot like a madwoman. Unfortunately, I feel like I have zero time while I try to push through the home stretch of my last semester of school. Oh, summer, how I cannot wait for thee!

Stay tuned in the next couple of days. I will be posting some photos from a recent photo meet up that I had the pleasure of attending.

Aloha! :)

Personal | Nighttime Adventures

While another busy month continues, thought I'd leave readers with 2 photos from my latest nighttime adventures on Oahu's east side. Since gazing at Big Island's spectacular sky, I've been much more aware of the stars and seeing the world in the dark, in general. What wonderful creation.

Keep your eyes on the skies. ;)

Military Photographer | Cari + Russell: Vow Renewal

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Cari and Russell's vow renewal at the beginning of this month at Sea Breeze on Hickam AFB. I loved everything about their ceremony because I loved everything about them. Both of them seemed so relaxed, but anxious to see one another. :) So much love was present, from bride and groom, to family and friends. I look forward to working with them in the future, and in the meantime, they will be keeping their marriage strong as Russell deploys. Thanks again for letting me be a part of your renewal ceremony, Cari and Russ!

At the end of the night, they asked if it would be alright to do a jumping shot. Are you kidding me?!? Heck yes! Bring it!

Personal | Bring it 2011!

Since I have been unable to log in to Blogger for a few days, I'm finally getting to post our fun new contest to ring in the new creative year! This contest is to win an underwater photoshoot, something I have dreamed of doing since admiring Marina Miller's underwater work. I'm really stoked to bust into action this year with inspiration and visions. Please head on over to the Facebook fanpage to read more about the contest, located under the 'notes' section.

2011 is gonna be another awesome(r) year! :)
