Our Family Portraits :)

I met Carla Jalbert at Mike Colon's workshop back in December. The other day, she took some wondeful portraits of our family. She is an amazing photographer and such a sweet and wonderful person! She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and she caught us in the moment, being ourselves. This is what I strive to do at every photo shoot. It was different to be in front of the camera - I'm not used to it. I was so happy to get some photographs of our little Kaimana who is not so little anymore. He is growing way too fast. All though I am a professional photographer, I have to admit that I haven't been taking nearly as many photos of my little sweetheart as I'd like to. I think it's because whenever we're at the beach I want to be in the moment with him and make sure he's not running into the water (which he does). So... it's hard to take photos of your own child when they are in such an exploring stage of life. I am SO THANKFUL to have these images to look back on. Thank you Carla! We love them!

Taylor & Clayton` Seawatch, Wailea

Taylor and Clayton are such an amazing couple! Taylor emailed me a while back about her wedding (she found me through a referral on the knot) and I knew she was such a sweetheart from her emails. Taylor was such a lovely bride and Jessica Waite did an excellent job on the girls makeup. The ceremony was performed by Pia Aluli who did a beautiful job! Their reception was at the Seawatch.

Taylor and Clayton were both were so fun to work with all day. You could tell they really allowed themselves to relax enjoy their wedding day. They were so naturally beautiful both inside and out. I feel extremely lucky to be a wedding photographer and to meet people who are so in love. I get to share their most beautiful day with them. It's the best job in the world :) Shaina came and assisted me and did a great job. Thanks Shaina for all your help. Taylor and Clayton, congratulations! If and when you move to Maui, let's do some fun portraits :)

There's a slideshow at the end - make sure to check it out.

I have been just so into sunflare lately: (see below)

Shaina captured this lovely image below:

The next image was taken on my canon 5D MII which at 6400 iso and my video light. Without the new technology that canon has to offer this image would not have been the same - I'm loving the high iso capability!
