The Birth of Jackson Joseph at Queens Hospital

Phon30graphy Roundup

If you've been following along, my friends and I have been doing a iPhone-tography challenge the last few weeks. I actually dedicated my weekly P52 post to ONLY my iphone photos, you can see that HERE. We thought it would be fun to do a weekly update, so I chose my favorite images I've taken so far.

A "Royal" Honolulu Wedding at Hickam Beach

Shawnna's wedding was hands down FUN. Not even a little rain or a no show limo driver could mess up her day. The bridesmaids had a great time getting ready- who doesn't need a shot of Crown Royal Apple to warm up with?

Love | part one

Why am I a photographer? ..part one.


Love is a very big, vague word. It can be a verb, adjective, tattoo, something on a tee shirt from some 60's clothing phase. To really love someone though, honestly and 100%? I believe there is a type of love only a parent can have for a child, it's separate from adoration, affection, or even love for a spouse. It's pure magic.
