January 16, 2019

Upon booking this shoot I quickly found out that Amber and her husband Clay use to live on a tropical island as well. So here we are, the three islanders, braving the winter and embracing the snow. This winter thing isn’t so bad after all. Philadelphia, I like you. Also isn’t she stunning!? I just […]

Kōke’e Daze

February 5, 2018

Not all of Hawaii is palm trees and beaches. Hawaii has many microclimates. You can be laying out on the beach sipping a Mai Thai, and the next minute be on your way to the mountains, sipping hot chocolate in the lodge. I fell in love with Kauai after exploring Kōke’e State Park. “This is […]

Underneath the Palm Trees

December 4, 2017

I had a blast photographing, yoga teacher and friend, Audrey. She helped me test out my new (well not so new) Hasselblad camera that dates back to the 1950’s. I purchased this camera in hopes of ‘slowing down’. With the digital age, almost anyone can be a photographer. You can take 1,000 photos before you […]

Our next stop, the picturesque, Hanalei Bay. Running, dancing, sand drawings, jumping waves, laughing, smiling, more laughing, hugging, loving, kissing. This is […]

A Wedding to Remember

October 13, 2017

Imagine a bond too powerful to break, too strong to become weak, too beautiful to let go. Imagine a love so pure, filled with trust and commitment. A love you wait a lifetime for. This love that I speak of is exactly what is shared between Megan and Chris. In deep Kilauea the two committed […]

ALOHA IS LOVE

October 5, 2017

Aloha means many things, but in one word it’s best described as, love. Love is happiness. Aloha is a caring for others as well as your own self. It’s an unselfish love. Which is exactly what Kate and Zac shared. Their receptiveness towards my silly ideas of prancing to the ocean, dancing and laughing is […]

BEAUTIFUL MATERNITY

October 2, 2017

I first met Nina at Nani Moon Meadery in Kapaa, Kauai. Nina owns and operates Hawaii’s only Meadery. We instantly connected after learning she is originally from Cheltenham, Pennsylvania. (The same town where my boyfriend, James, grew up.) Talk about a small world! We spent our time sipping mead (fermented honey) and reminiscing of good […]
