Hawaii Military Family Portrait

Military family living in Kailua, Oahu, requested a family portrait session before Dad left to serve in Iraq. Aren't the kids beautiful? No doubt they miss their dad. We all pray for his safe return. OP2 offers a discount for military family portrait sessions.

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (NILMDTS) Annual Fund Drive

October is recognized as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, an organization that coordinates remembrance photography throughout the U.S., is holding its annual fund drive from now until October 31. Please consider making a donation to this wonderful organization. Also, if you know of a family who might be interested in this service on Oahu, feel free to pass along my information as I am a volunteer photographer for this organization. Disclaimer: I have not yet done any remembrance photography sessions, so I hope I'll be able to handle it (emotionally) should someone call me. Donations to NILMDTS will go toward training and educating volunteer photographers, providing outreach to hospitals and helping families cope with their enormous loss. Thank you in advance for your support.

Family Portrait at Hilton Hawaiian Village

Family from California requested some semi-formal photographs at Hilton Hawaiian Village, where they were vacationing. They preferred the lush greenery to the beach, so we walked around the hotel's landscaped areas and got lots of nice family photographs. Now the dilemma is, which ones to print!

Family Portrait in Hawaii Kai, Portlock

A family from Nevada gathered at a house in Portlock, Hawaii Kai, this summer. I loved taking photos of their little girl. Capturing the interaction between a child and her parents is special, but capturing the interaction between a child and her grandparents is even more special.
