Regardless of the season that you're in, and whether your babies are big, small or furry, this time in your life deserves to be captured by something other than your iPhone. A few years ago I stopped photographing families as I wanted to only focus on weddings, but I found myself missing out on capturing memories for my couples.
I love creating photos to remind families that in spite of the fact that the car of their floor is covered in cereal, their laundry room looks like an episode of hoarders and mom and dad are in a permanent state of exhaustion, their love and their story are beautiful.
So let's plan a day, pick a location that is meaningful to you and create a slew of images that will fill up the frames your walls for years to come.
WORD ON THE STREET
“Can't wait to get these on my walls! Gonna be hard to pick favorites because they are all great!”

frequently asked questions
what do we do if it rains?
Welcome to Hawaii, where rain comes as goes as it pleases. When it comes to rain if its less than 40% chance, we'll be ok, if its over 50% we'll most likely reschedule. Often, when we're scheduling our initial portrait session date, if it works for our calendars, we'll actually set up both a main date and a rain date just to make sure we don't have to postpone your session for very long if the weather is bad on the original date.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?
The sooner the better! I only book 2 session a week and those fill up pretty quicky - especially during the spring and fall, so the sooner you reach out to me, the more likely you are to get your desired date!
To reserve your date, I'll need a contract as well as a retainer. If something comes up and you need to change your date, just let me know!
If picking out outfits for photos takes you back to your high school days when you literally tried on everything in your closet and piled it on your bed, and you still felt like you had nothing to wear, you're in luck.
I put together an extensive outfit suggestion guide with tips for every member of the family.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. I mean, I take photos for a living and I even feel like a deer in the headlights when I'm in front of the camera.
You're going to feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and we coach you through images, we think you'll find that being photographed can actually be fun. And don't worry about your kids, I'm used to taking photos of kids. ;)
WE'RE AWKWARD AND MY KIDS DON'T SIT STILL.
Within a few weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images.
The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints, canvases and other keepsakes as easy as turning on a Roomba to clean your floors. No worrying about tricky things like color correction, DPI and image format.
