On the Side of Paradise

I'm excited to announce that I won my first juried photography competition. The Allen-Tarleton Contest is sponsored by the various photo clubs in Hawaii, and includes different categories to which one can enter. I entered one photo in the color print and one in the B&W print categories. My entry, "On the Side of Paradise", won first place in the color category. I feel extremely honored and pleased that the judges chose my print as there were many beautiful photographs submitted (including a couple from Kekiinani).

Another Family

I had the pleasure of photographing the Sneeds on Saturday afternoon. I have photographed the children on several occasions during the past two years, but this was the first time with the whole family. We had perfect weather, and the little one was in a good mood, so things went smoothly. So here's a sneek peak for you guys--I hope you enjoy them!

What a fun family!

On Sunday afternoon, I had the pleasure of photographing the Sperry Family. These guys were so much fun! They were up for jut about anything, and relaxed easily in front of the camera. It was easy to get photographs of them just being themselves, which is really the point of lifestyle photography after all.

So here's a sneak peak for you guys! I hope you love them as much as I do...


Bark Bark, Ruff Ruff!

It took me a little longer than I planned, but here are some of my favorites from Kevin's session...what a great-looking guy he is!


Shauna + Kahai

Shauna and Kahai had their wedding at Hale Pohaku in Waimanalo. It was a very intimate ceremony and Shauna's dad was their minister. They were surrounded by loving family and friends, and there were few dry eyes during the ceremony. Even I had to hold back a few tears (it's hard to see to take photographs with watery eyes!). I feel honored that Shauna and Kahai chose me as their photographer to share and capture such a special time in their life.

I promised more from Sunday's session, and here they are! I have been working 18 hours a day to keep from falling behind deadlines, but I got some of my favorites of Callie finished. I hope to have some of Kevin's ready for posting tomorrow.

Fun in the Park

Sunday afternoon, I had the pleasure of photographing two high school seniors. Kevin and Callie are such great kids, and so much fun to work with. They have been friends since they were babies, and have such a close relationship. In fact, their parents grew up together.

Last year, I photographed Callie's older sister, Whitley, for her senior year. And two years before that, Kevin's older sister, Kelsey.

We all met at Montgomery Bell State Park a couple hours before sunset. The kids had a lot of fun, and Callie almost caught a rabbit on the edge of the field!

I'll be sharing more from this session in the coming days, so check back often!
