Family portrait session – Waimanalo Bay, Oahu, Hawaii

  • No Comments

Little Makena and Kota had a blast at the beach today during our photo session. They run from the big waves, chased each other & their parents, played games and built sandcastles. Exactly what family photo session should be like coming from California to Hawaii for vacation.

Hamama Waterfalls engagement session, Oahu – Hawaii

  • No Comments

Julia and Jonathan wanted something little different for their engagement session. So we packed some water, bug repellent and bunch of different dresses for Julia and went for a hike to Hamama Waterfalls. We made few stops on the way so we could do photos by the river and under a huge banyan tree. Once we got to the falls, it started to pour rain but it kind of added to the atmosphere and our little lovebirds made the photos in the rain look totally hot!

Family portraits at Waimanalo Bay, First Birthday

  • No Comments

It was so great seeing Kim and Ryan again. We have photographed their engagement session and their wedding back in California few years back. They now came to Oahu for vacation and also to celebrate their son Liam’s first Birthday. We did a portait session at the beach and then came back to the studio so we could do some fun cake smashing photographs.
Cake: Cakeworks Hawaii – They did an absolutely amazing job on this cake. They made it just by looking at a picture, we were truly impressed with the results and also by amazing customer service.

Petra and Brad on Babymoon in Oahu – Hawaii Maternity portraits

  • No Comments

Is your baby on the way? Some recognize this as a last chance opportunity to take a couple only vacation before the kid arrives. Once the kid arrives, it’s all about diapers and more travel challenges. That’s why these more and more couples take the “Babymoon”. It’s like a honeymoon vacation, but with a bump symbolizing the child is on the way.

We met up with Petra and Brad for their babymoon here on Oahu. They wanted to take some time out of the pregnancy period to enjoy a little sun, soft sand, and relaxation. Meeting them at Waimanalo beach, we were able to capture them in their bliss mid vacation. Their smiles were already plastered on their face with the look of never wanting to leave. Even though they do have to leave to go back home, these babymoon photos will now be with them forever to remember the good times here on Oahu.

We know they had a great time and will be back; hopefully sooner than later so we can capture them for their family photos. Here are a few from the day.

Pupukea Beach Family Portrait Session

  • No Comments
Family Portraits, Pupukea Beach

Ten family members came together for a vacation on the North Shore from Utah, Arizona, Iowa, Ohio, California and Hawaii. It was super fun to photograph these four generations with ages ranging from 1-90 years old at the Pupukea Beach. It was raining when we started but as the session went on the weather turned beautiful just the way it always does here in Oahu.

We started off with the youngest member of the family, just in case he gets cranky later on but he did awesome the whole time!!

Are you a viewer of Hawaii’s OC16 channel? If so, you are in for a treat because we will be on Hawaii’s Wedding Professionals hosted by Kalehua Featheran. You can also see it on HoneyLook.com’s website or straight through Vimeo (video link below). It was more of a treat for us to be able to be selected and to be able to do the show at the Ko’olau Ballroom to talk story about our business. Although we have been on HGTV’s Hawaii Life TV show when we moved here, it was strange being in front of the camera again. I’m not sure that feeling of nervousness will ever leave, but we had a great time with Kalehua. Hopefully you can catch the episode to hear a little bit about us and our business.

If you are wanting to see it on TV, here are the air dates for our show:

Family photo session at the beach – Waimanalo Bay

  • No Comments

A day at the beach for this family was all that was needed to make for a fun winter day here on Oahu. The Family Portrait session at Waimanalo was gorgeous. There was a slight breeze in the air and the waters were calm and blue making for this picture perfect backdrop. This family enjoys a good day at the beach and this is one of their favorites and anyone can see why. It was nice capturing these moments for them since their little ones are growing up so quick and mom is in town for just a short stay.
