We did pregnancy portraits with Abby and Darrell at the Kualoa park before but they were looking for something different as well. Since their little girl’s nursery theme is ocean/marmaid related, it only made sence to do some photos underwater as well. And we had a blast in the process.
Little Addison is going to be here before we know it so we met up with her parents by the Kualoa mountains to capture the excitement.
This little girl is going to be loved SO much! We shot this when her mommy was about 30 weeks into her pregnancy and captured the love and anticipation with her daddy as well.
When traveling alone it can be hard to take your own vacation portraits. Sure there are selfie sticks, camera timers while steady on a rock or asking strangers to taking a photo of you only to hope they don’t take a photo with your feet or head cut off or worse….. they run off with your camera. Beautiful Marie just happened to be on vacation here for a short stay and wanted some photos out on the beach. Despite the weather dumping rain and winds blowing, she still had a blast dashing around on the sand and jumping into the water. See some of these cute photos from our day at the beach.

Today we were greeted by this new little face. Baby Liliana joined us in the studio for her first photos and her first smiles in front of the camera. Check out those cute little cheeks. Don’t you just want to squeeze them??? It was hard to resist, but did….or maybe we did squeeze them a little bit virtually in our mind. You’ll never know, but I bet you can guess. Enjoy these cheeks as we saw them through the camera.
Makapu’u Family Photos
Take a walk on the east side of Oahu and you’ll find one of the most beautiful places on the island, Makapu’u. Makapu’u family photos are very hard to beat when it comes to scenery and serenity and Tracy & Ryan made a great choice here. It was a great day for them to play with their daughter on the beach and even for this shoot, they brought out the family dog for a few clicks of the camera. Ryan enjoys playing his ukulele so he pulled it out mid way through the shoot to play a little. It was so nice to hear the music playing with the waves splashing just behind them. Have a look at their session to see how amazing it was out there.

Wet Wedding on Makapu’u
So you spend all this time planning and preparing for your wedding day envisioning the most perfect day, but then mother nature decides to open up the skies. Not just a little, but a LOT!!! That’s what happened to Julia & Jonathan on their wedding day. They had one heck of a wet wedding. We arrived with the rain turning off and on, but when the ceremony began the weather cleared just enough to not shower them completely. After the kisses were done though, the rain came down and HARD. Now most would run to shelter to get out of the wet, but J&J were awesome troopers. They knew that this was their day and the wet was just a part of that gift. We continued to shoot despite the amount coming down. It was hard to keep the lenses from sheeting up, but we made it all happen and now we have some awesome photos of this cute couple on their wet wedding day.
