Meet My Little Ohana
These two awesome humans next to me are my husband, Tony and my son, Tyson. Tony was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. I met him back in 2017 while he was stationed in Hawaii. Sadly, after a year of meeting him he PCS'd to Florida. In 2020 we found ourselves happily married and soon after in 2022, I gave birth to an amazing baby boy!
My life did a 180 in such a small amount of time. Even though I am still trying to catch my breath in it all, I know that God's timing is perfect timing.

What I believe in...
RELAXED FRAME OF MIND
I want our time together to be enjoyable and a stress free zone. So if you are running late or your kids just aren't cooperating on our session, don't worry. I do my best to adapt to you and your kids! If they are a worry for you before our session, just let me know. I have tips and tricks to help kids stay in tuned in our session. Try to plan ahead as much as possible because our time together is limited due to the sun rising or setting.
In Hawaii we have a proverb called, Mālama ʻĀina. It means to honor and care for the land. A practice that is so widely held by Hawaiians. The saying was learned at a very young age. As the girl scouts would say, leave no trace! Dispose of your trash, leave what you find, respect the wildlife and others around you.
I try to do everything I can to keep the land and environment around me clean. When choosing confetti canons or similar items, please try to choose more environmentally friendly ones. I'd be happy to help you find one that fits your taste!
I am a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend...
And maybe your new photographer! I know exactly how it feels to make sure you've captured quality photos in certain stages of your life. This isn't about cute, instagram worthy photographs. This is about capturing the moments you have with your kids and cherishing them when you get older. It's about freezing those memories so you can take a step back and appreciate who you have in your life right now. I want you to be able to pass those gorgeous wedding photos down to your grandchildren to inspire them that they can find a love like yours one day.
In my time of photographing clients I have photographed:
- A woman who had a mastectomy due to breast cancer.
- A vow renewal of a wife and her husband who at the time was facing terminal cancer. He passed away 2 weeks later.
- Family photos of a couple that thought they could never get pregnant but ended up having two kids.
- A couple that can't get pregnant.
- A couple who lost their baby during birth.
These were moments in their lives that they documented. It became something so beautiful as they were able to later reminisce and realize how far they've come in life. So no matter what stage of life you're in, just know that what I provide as a photographer are images to last you past your lifetime.
