Portrait and Headshot Photographer based in Mililani , Hawaii on the island of Oahu

About me...

I LOVE coffee! Coffee makes me happy, makes me efficient, makes me motivated, keeps me moving….and it tastes good :)

I am obsessive when creating things! I frequently work through the night on costumes, art, sewing, knitting and photography. Luckily my husband understands and supports my insanity ;) Did I mention that I love coffee :)

I can swim miles and miles and secretly hope I’m part fish or a mermaid. But don’t ask me to run.

I have a great sense of humor…dry and sarcastic by nature but I’m not afraid to be silly and ridiculous especially around children.

I believe in clean eating (and ice cream!!).

I believe life is not complete without a book waiting for you on the nightstand (who am I kidding…4 or 5 books is more like it).

I believe that the family togetherness years fly by too soon and I try to carve time out of the crazy chaos of activities to create family memories before my beautiful girls head out on their own.

I believe in leaning into my fear and doing the things that scare me! Not crazy things like jumping out of planes but saying yes instead of no, choosing the path that has the element of risk instead of comfort.

I am so proud of my husband’s 20 years of Army service and thankful that we get to call Hawaii our forever home. I am the mother of 3 beautiful daughters (2 teens and one preteen) and their precious faces and the scenery of Hawaii have definitely inspired me in my photography. I shoot families because there are years when I did not appear in photos with my family and I hope that families take the opportunity to capture the family as it is at every age.

Whether you are Military, Kama'aina or coming here for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation, let's find a fabulous location and create some memories.

I can't wait to get to know you and plan just the right photo shoot for your needs.

"It's one thing to photograph people. It is another to make others care about them by revealing the core of their humanness."
