Jenna, a student at Punahou School, had her senior pictures taken on a beautiful morning in her grandparents backyard in Manoa. Good luck, Jenna!
I'm a natural light lifestyle photographer based in Honolulu, Hawaii. I specialize in on-location child and family portraits, outdoor senior pictures, vacation portraits, engagement sessions and trash-the-dress sessions on Oahu. I also offer photography for intimate island-style weddings in Hawaii. Photo sessions are relaxed and unhurried because I want my clients to be themselves.
I have an undergraduate degree in psychology and a master's in communication. I've worked in a number of fields including education and photography. A few years ago, I gave up a steady paycheck to simplify my life and follow my passion: photography. I've never looked back. I love what I do and I hope it shows in my work.
I'm married to a fabulous photographer (okay, I'm biased!) and we have two spirited kids and a crazy puppy who keep us laughing and busy! I'm drawn to lighthouses and the ocean; I love children, gardenias, beautiful buildings and radiant brides. Thank you for visiting my photo blog and I hope I'll get the chance to take your photos! - Shiyana
