.joy as deep as the ocean


May your joys be as deep as the ocean, your sorrows as light as its foam.

I have been busy with many many sessions but this one just seems like the best one to post as we are deep into summer! It was a gorgeous evening at T-Street with warm water, perfect barrels and balmy air. When I closed my eyes I could have easily been back at Oahu rolling in and out of the surf with my camera.

My love for ocean photography started back in 2000 when my husband and I set sail for Polynesia. I spent hours in the lagoons of Tahiti, Tuamotus and the Marquesas with my camera. During the summer on the North Shore I floated in and out with the waves capturing the jagged reef below. I knew then that ocean photography was in my future and to now combine it with making portraits of others who love the ocean too is a dream come true.

Family and couple sessions are available for booking year round.

    These photos will be forever treasured by my family. You captured exactly how I feel as a mother, how I miss my free days living in Hawaii and spending most of my time in or sailing on the ocean….and how I want to share that spirit with my children…. and how they appear to have the same spirit in their souls too. You are amazing.
