Ko olina Family Portrait

A young family from Texas stayed at the Ko Olina Beach Club and had a sunset family portrait taken at the beach there. In the middle of the shoot, a Ko Olina guard tried to shoo us away claiming we were on a private beach. We climbed over some rocks to leave the "private beach" and continued the shoot. Its a shame that Ko Olina won't allow their own Beach Club members and Ihilani Resort guests to enjoy a family portrait at their "private beaches." Where's the aloha?

Hawaii Family Portrait

A family from California stayed at the Sheraton Waikiki and requested an on location family portrait session at the beach. The little girl was hungry and not in the mood for a photography session, but after eating a few crackers that I had in the car for my son, she perked up and managed a smile or two. We were blessed with a beautiful rainbow over Diamond Head.

Couple Portrait - Waikiki, Hawaii

Newlyweds from London, England enjoyed their first-year anniversary and a second honeymoon in Hawaii. Since they scheduled their portrait session toward the beginning of their stay, they were able to take back their photo CD and prints with them. They are looking forward to returning to Hawaii in a few years.

Photographer for Marine Corps Ball Hawaii, Turtle Bay Resort

We were invited to be the official photographers for the U.S. Marine Corps Birthday Ball at Turtle Bay Resort last month. We took portraits of the marines and did some general coverage of the ceremony at the event. The colonel cut the cake with a sword! Gotta try that at the next birthday party :)

It was wonderful experience working with the military officers - they were organized, polite and downright nice.
