"A’a i ka hula, waiho i ka maka’u i ka hale – Dare to dance, leave shame at home."

A celebration of you! My portrait sessions are for individuals, artists, entrepreneurs, and anyone who desires to have a visionary portrait experience for themselves. Individuals are looking for something more personal and artistic beyond a traditional headshot – a timeless statement portrait that you can be proud of forever. 

The photographs may just be for you, but they could also be used as promotional materials for authors, musicians, singers, artists, and creative entrepreneurs. Some clients have booked a portrait session to document a graduation, a military promotion, or another special life event.

These portraits are the result of a creative collaborative session between you and myself. Unlike headshot sessions where clients are looking for a visual marketing tool for business, my portrait sessions require more time and planning and a deeper level of emotional investment. Every session is different. All the details from tone to mood, wardrobe, position, location, and backdrop must be planned ahead of time.

Photography is more than just technique. I will listen, understand, and communicate the cornerstone qualities that make up an individual’s unique personality and then translate those qualities through the lens of my cameras. 

No matter how old or young you are or where you are in your life’s journey, there is something that ticks within you, and it is our job to bring forth that from you and capture those qualities in a portrait.
