Giving Thanks

There are friends and then there are friends… Most of my life I’ve been the master of acquiring acquaintances. I love meeting new people. I love chit chat. Acquaintances are wonderful.

Close friends, on the other hand, were pretty scarce until my husband and I moved to Kailua Town. Since then, I’ve been blessed with so many good friends. The kind of friends that stuck it out long enough to get to know the real me. And as all good friends, we take each other through thick and thin.

I can’t tell you how much I love you girls! Happy Thanksgiving!

Such sweet innocence, a twinkle in her eye and a great big belly laugh always at the ready. Two is a special age! To Pepper, everything is fun, bright, cheerful and hilarious. I adore this age!

Here’s a sneak peek of the fun dress-up party we had:

Kailua Senior Portraits: Group Fashion Shoot

November 11, 2011 | Filed Under Fashion/Commercial, Senior Portraits | 2 Comments 

To kick off my senior portrait season I wanted to portray SENIOR PORTRAITS in a really fun, unique way…group style! I recently put together a senior fashion shoot, featuring four fabulous real high school seniors from the Kailua area. Even in our laid-back Kailua beach town, we created some really chic, edgy, urban shots. Our team was quite amazing and each one of them brought their own personality and style that really made this fashion shoot so fun.

Thanks to Johnny Utah at the FIX for the fantastic hair styling and to my very cool seniors. You guys ROCK!

4 Tips For GREAT Halloween Photos!!!

October 31, 2011 | Filed Under Children, Events, Fashion/Commercial | Comments Off on 4 Tips For GREAT Halloween Photos!!! 

Here are some tips for taking better Halloween photos:

  1. Choose to take photos during the daylight hours. This way you know the light will be beautiful & you won’t have to worry about yellow indoor lighting or harsh flash.
  2. Set aside a time specifically to take pictures away from major costume wearing events. This eliminates impatience & many distractions.
  3. Take your children’s Halloween pictures before the succession of parties begin. This gives you crisp, clean costumes to work with. It’s sad to wait until all the festivities are over to suddenly get in a quick photo. With my kids, usually something is torn, pieces are lost, stains and stickiness cover their costumes…and my little one is sick of wearing hers, so keeping a hat or bow on is out of the question.
  4. Halloween nights are long and exhausting (although fun) and kids are not in the mood to take pictures at the end of a long, stimulating night. So try to avoid being ‘photographer’ when your children are tired and cranky. Always better to do it early in the evening (or during the day). Or just try again the next day, even though it may require the extra effort of dressing up again, the happy smiles will be worth it.

I hope these little tips help you as you are planning your Halloween. Take your photos early, during the day & in a place that won’t tempt your child to run away from you for something more fun…like the next door to knock on.
