Hawaii Local Kids: Children's Portraits

These kids caught bugs (first photo), climbed trees and at least one ended up in the water. Their little cousin, who was visiting from Nevada, fell asleep on his mom's shoulder. I love photographing kids! You just go with the flow and let them have a good time - same principle applies to wedding photography!

Happy Halloween, everyone!

A Hawaii Teenager

I rarely write personal blogs but since my older son turned 13 recently, I thought this is a milestone worth blogging about. The first photo shows how much he enjoys a kiss from him mom ... 

This is a very uncharacteristic portrait as Resh is hardly ever serious. It was taken right after he got home from school so I guess he was thinking about all the homework he has to do! 

Now this is Resh - barefoot (all the time), boardshorts with pockets stuffed with wax and sometimes a spam musubi (you should see the mess when it comes out of the dryer), and a surfboard tucked under his arm. A typical local boy.

Sunset Beach Portraits Hawaii

This girl had the surprise of her life when her boyfriend whisked her off to Hawaii and proposed. She said "Yes!" The sunset beach portraits were taken on the North Shore of Oahu on a rainy, overcast afternoon. But the clouds parted for a glorious Hawaii sunset.
