I was born in Hawaii.
I'm 30 something years old (wink, wink)
I have been a professional photographer for 9 years.
I'm a believer in true love.
I love driving late at night, singing at the top of my lungs with the windows down.
I like to think outside of the box.
I am a rockstar! (in my dreams).
I can't get enough of the sound of my baby's laughter.
I love laughing so hard that it makes my side hurt!
I am a sucker for designer jeans.
I love horseback riding, the rain, London, hot yoga and devouring sushi.
I love, love, love my daughters eyes, especially when I get her to smile :-)
I am in love with my beautiful daughter.
My passion for photography started at the age of 19, my first camera was a 35mm canon, I fell in love instantly!! Through the eyes of a lens, you see the world with a more colorful view I was hooked. I grew up with a very diverse background. My family has always been very artistic, my Mother owned an art gallery in Hawaii, where I was born, so I have always been exposed to the world of art and expression. I kid you not; my Mom has over a hundred paintings hanging on her walls at home! It is like her own private art gallery of different artists and mediums, it is definitely a sight to see! She's an amazingly talented artist herself, I have to brag just a little! (big wink)
My career began as a child star on the television show “Hawaii Speaks.” Being exposed to the industry at a tender age kindled a fire within me to express my creative abilities. I also worked as an on-air personality (aka radio DJ), for radio stations, KQST and The Planet for six years. I attended The Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA. Singing and song writing has and always will be another great love of mine. In the course of my pursuit of acting, singing, modeling and radio, my love for photography only grew more. My experience in front of the lens empowered my vision to define what I saw through the lens and helped direct me on my path as a photographer. The small flame that ignited in my heart soon became a burning desire to embrace my love for the art of photography. To me a photograph is a work of art that has come to life. It is a moment captured forever. I've run two studios along with my freelance work. I take photographs from my heart and enjoy creating beautiful memories for people to treasure for a lifetime. (big ear to ear grin).
I have always appreciated and admired other photographers, to me, it's not a competition of who is the best, we all have our own unique talents and view on what is beautiful to us. Photography is a form of art and each photographer expresses their special gift through their photographs. I have had many inspirations throughout my life, my newest, is my family. The best words to describe my photographic style would be... fun, fresh, edgy, unique and lots and lots of color!!
