Hilton Hotel, Waikiki, Oahu | Lifestyle Family Photographer

Hilton Hotel, Waikiki, Oahu | Lifestyle Family Photographer It was a fun photo shoot with Doria family. As soon as I see them in our church on Sunday while they were staying Hawaii for a short term, I was instantly attracted to this cute family.  So I offered to photograph them before they leave. Kids are really active and I loved chasing them to capture precious moments. My favorite photo is kids laughing sitting on the sand. Waikiki Hilton hotel beach is always one of my favorite location toView full post »

Lanikai, Oahu | Lifestyle Baby Photography It was great to meet my good friends’ newborn baby. Halia, this baby’s mom felt sad that her family did not show up to the hospital after she delivered her first child. When they came back home from the hospital, they realized that her family made the most adorable nursery room as a surprise for them. Her family was so busy cleaning up and decorating the room so that they can welcome this newborn with great love. She is loved by everyone.View full post »

Magic Island, Oahu | Lifestyle Family Photographer

Lifestyle Family Photographer | Magic Island, Oahu It was an honor to photograph our friends, Librojo Family before they leave to Alaska. Thier twin baby boys and my daughter are only two months apart, so we often shared our experience about being a pregnant, going on labor, and how challenging and blessing to raise babies. Every time my husband and I visited their house, I was amazed their teamwork to take care of two active twins. We will definitely miss them and wish them good luck on theirView full post »

Summer Stylized Engagement Photo | Beach Theme It was fun shooting something different this time. We already have done their engagement session couple weeks ago (check it out here), but we also wanted to do some stylized shoot with the theme of beach and summer. Despite a lot of preparation for the shoot, It was pouring rain on the way going to the Waimanalo Beach. We almost gave up, but thanks to our faith, the rain stopped for us only while we are shooting! Even blue sky showed her face onlyView full post »

Engagement Photo Session | Tantalus, Oahu, Hawaii It was fun working with my great friends, Asuka and Josh. We met at the Brigham Young University of Hawaii while we are students, and I am so happy that she finally found her man whom she calls him her eternal companion. While we are discussing where we should take pictures for their engagement photos, she told me that she wants to be surrounded by many gorgeous trees and include magnificent nature of Hawaii in the images. As soon as she saidView full post »

Nature Love Engagement

Haleiwa | Engagement Photo | Nature Love

Engagement Photo session  in Haleiwa, Northshore Asuka is one of my best college friends from Japan who recently got into a relationship with Josh who is half Tongan. Her friends and I are so happy about their relation since we knew that she struggled to find her eternal love. It seemed like no guy can make her happy, and we even thought she was being too picky because they are many boys asking her out. It was worth the wait for her to find the perfect guy who wants to spend rest of her lifeView full post »

Laie, Hawaii | Three months old baby photos | Natural Window Light | Cute props

June is a season of Hydrangea, so I thought it would be fun to use the flowers to add a rich purple color to have some variety in the pictures. These are definitely my favorite photos from the shoot! Baby’s hands and hairs are the cutest things Even though some people are concern about inviting photographers to come over to their home to have lifestyle photography because they think their house is not pretty enough, the truth is all you need is an open window with natural light. I didView full post »
