Baby Collins just turned 1 year old yesterday. She got a special gift from her parent’s friends for her birthday in a form of a photo shoot. They live in Oregon now, but Collins’ dad Chad grew up in Kaneohe so we set up the shoot at Kualoa Regional Park by Chinaman’s Hat so he could show his little family where he used to hang out as a kid. Little Collings was all smiles on the beach, intereted in absolutely everything around her. What a cute little princess. She totally rocked the bright romper made by her grandma and a little orchid from grandpa’s garden.
Merrin & Dustin invited their closest family and friends and got married by the water in Kaneohe Bay. They travelled from San Diego and enjoyed their little wedding tremendously with all of their 20 guests. Merrin’s brother Sam performed the ceremony which made it very personal and just added to the wonderful family atmosphere.
It was a great commute for me as it took me about 4 minutes to drive there from across the Bay. I had such a great time photographing this wonderful event.
I had an absolute blast hanging out and photographing Jeri & Clark. We started off with some fresh ice teas at the Kahuku Farms and enjoyed walking around their beautiful grounds. From there on we drove to Kawela Bay to do some shots by the big banyan tree. They were actually just setting up for the movie Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (starring Anna Kendrick and Zac Effron). The set looked amazing – they had a wedding reception placed right under the banyan. We ended the shoot with some nice beach fun. This place just radiated “tropical romance” with these two lovebirds in it. Look how cute they are!
I bet most of the expecting parents would be jealous knowing that Matt & Nicole had their baby’s name picked out even before they were pregnant. You don’t hear that too often. Nicole is now 33 weeks along and they both can’t wait to meet little Liam Matthew later this summer. For their pregnancy photo shoot, we went to the Lanikai Beach and got there in the morning so we could beat the crowds.
I love photographing people in love! This photoshoot was even more special since this couple was just celebrating their 25th anniversary. They flew in from Texas and we headed to Sunset Beach in Haleiwa to walk on the beach and capture some tropical feel that they can remember for years to come. Happy Anniversary!!!
I’m thrilled to photograph Tiffany and Sam troughout the next year starting with their pregnancy session. I can’t wait to meet their little guy who is coming next month and continue to capture hist first year.
T+S used to live close to the East-West gardens in Honolulu and really like the look of it. It worked out to be a wonderful spot for their maternity session.
It was so wonderful to watch Kalai’s big brother play ukulele for him. He was so gentle and super nice with him. SO amazing.
Tanya and Bubba came to celebrate their wedding anniversary from Texas. Three kids and twenty years later, these two were truly enjoying their time together, like it was their honeymoon. Congratulations!!!
Tiny Tyler was born little early but he is ready conquer the world with the all the 6 pounds 13 ounces. I see lots of surfing and football playing in the future!!!
