Pumpkin Patch Minis - Andrea

This sweet family reached out for a model call I put out a year ago, and I giggled when I realized they lived across the street from me. Since then, we've become friends and I've been so honored to photograph their family from time to time. Joe isn't fond of family photos, but doesn't mind my methods (or lack of methods) when it comes to documentary photographs and lets things happen naturally.

Personal Photographs: Everlasting Imagery, Texas

While in Hawaii I had to take advantage of having photographs done of me and my little pineapple baby. She might not have been born there, but oh man she is everything that symbolizes my time in Hawaii (and she sure was concieved there, lol)! My friend Ariel of Everlasting Imagery was so kind to photograph the two of us at one of the few locations I never got to shoot at and always wanted to visit

Brand Promo for Cheyenne Rose Boudoir Photography, Hawaii

When Cheyenne asked if I would shoot a brand video I jumped at the opportunity. We had grown up just a town away and then lived in Hawaii at the same time, and both left the island before we had a chance to meet. Not only would we finally cross paths, but we were going to rent out a chill airbnb in Honolulu and work together. :SWOON:

Hawaii Sessions: The Wizinsky Family

Oh man, Lindsey and Jordan were some of my very first clients and we developed a pretty awesome friendship while I was still in Hawaii. I photographed their oldest for milestones and family functions, and then right when I found out I was pregnant with my third child Lindsey messaged me to announce her own pregnancy! She was one month ahead of me, and I was so sad not to be on the island when she gave birth to sweet baby two. Coming back to visit was so fun and getting the babies together was amazing. I hope one day our paths cross again, but the wonderful thing about social media is we can still chat on a almost daily basis like there isn't an ocean between us <3

Ah Hui Hoi! Favorite clips from our Hawaiian (working) vacation

When we first got orders to Hawaii, I was secretly a little bummed. Coming from Florida, I was looking forward to living somewhere with seasons and snow. Plus it's super far away and expensive.

I didn't expect it to grow on me like it did! I'll always feel like Hawaii is home. It's the most beautiful place, with crystal clear teal waters, soft sand, and lots of aloha. The FOOD to die for, and there's always a gentle breeze. Getting off the airplane you immediately notice the smell of flowers everywhere.

Hawaii Sessions: The Parr Family

Man, I really have the coolest job! I photographed their firstborn back in 2015 and when I mentioned I was planning on coming back to the island, Savannah messaged me saying she was newly pregnant and would be needing a birth announcement. HOW COOL. I love this little family and can't wait to meet Violet's little brother one day <3
