Family Portrait Sessions

Family portraits on Oahu, what’s better than that? It’s about the people we love. The person you’ve chosen to be your companion in this life and possibly the littles or not so littles you’ve created along the way. I love the randomness of these shoots. I love being accepted into people’s world for a moment so I can get to know them and capture them exactly as they are, but in a beautiful way. There’s a trust that happens where I don’t set out to do anything in particular, we just hang out and play. I pride myself on creating a safe, cheerful space. Where you can just “be” and end up with photos that remind you of having fun with your family. We’re gonna rock some poses of course, but ideally, my goal is to give you beautiful candids. 

There are many locations on Oahu that shoot beautifully. There’s, for sure, wide swaths of beach and blue waters, but there are also dramatic rocky cliffs.We have rustic fields with tall grass, forests, jungles and urban locations as well. We can chat about what vibe you’d like and what clothes to wear. 

This is really exciting work for me. These photos will hopefully grace your walls forever and I take a lot of pride in that. Family portraits don’t feel like much while you’re shooting them but as they age, they become a treasure. Clear, sharp moments frozen in time to remember forever, the story of your life.

I’m a pretty silly guy so generally kids like me. I have two young nieces so I’m in full uncle mode every weekend. 

Take a look at some of my favorite sessions below. Hopefully, you’ll see my style as fresh, fun and beautiful, but with a dash of my sense of humor mixed in. You can also click here for more details on portrait sessions.
