I am  

I can't wait to meet you and have the opportunity to photograph YOU in beautiful Hawaii!  Don't worry, most of your photos will be stunning but there may be a few fun shots like this family favorite of mine!  I love to photograph people and I love to create REAL photos from real moments!!
I bought a one-way ticket & moved to Hawaii 25 years ago from Portland, Oregon and have been blessed with working and playing in one of the most beautiful places on earth!  My handsome, Canadian husband and I met on Kauai and have been together for 20 amazing years.  We have three children.  Our sweet angel lost to childhood cancer, our beautiful son we adopted and another rascal who is a bright light in the midst of it all.  When I'm not making photographs or with my family, I am usually running the beautiful trails of Waimea in awe of the landscape, warmth, and sweet smells in the air.

Mahalo for stopping by…
