  • I deeply care about the environment, especially the ocean, reefs and marine life. While my husband and I have been cleaning beaches together for a long time, I decided to take it a step further - because actions speak louder than words.

    With every photography session I book, I pledge my time to pick up trash on the beach and in the ocean. The longer the session, the longer I collect trash! So simply by commissioning me to photograph your family, you are helping to keep Hawaii more beautiful and the ocean a healthier environment.

    It's a win-win for everyone and our ocean life thanks you!

  • I believe in celebrating life through photographs, and am proud to be a volunteer photographer for these non-profit organizations:

The Magic Hour Foundation
sessions for families fighting cancer

The Gold Hope Project
sessions for pediatric cancer patients

If you know a family deserving of a charitable session, please refer them to these organizations, or to me directly.

  • I love animals! Boston Terriers quickly stole my heart after I fostered a few dozen of them (not all at once!) for the

MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue(MABTR).

Living in Hawaii, I can no longer be a foster parent to this rescue group, but I’m so happy to be able to continue supporting them through photography.

You can support the rescue with the purchase of birthday, Christmas and greeting cards I helped create, available at their store. And if you need a little pick-me-up, visit the Boston Terrier Gallery in my personal work – it’s sure to put a smile on your face!
