The Process


To start the process, call, text or email me, let me know your desired date and time and we’ll go from there. Please book your session as early as you can. My schedule is often booked several weeks in advance. I accept a very limited number of sessions per month so I have the time needed to devote myself to creating the very best images I can give you.

All Sessions Require:  A signed session agreement and a 50% retainer due at booking, this retainer goes to the total session price. Sessions dates are penciled/temporarily held for 3 days (10 days for weddings) until retainer is received.  This fee is non-refundable if you cancel your session. The balance is due prior to the start of your session.


Hawaii offers numerous options for locations.  Sometimes this seems to be the hardest part of the session – deciding on what gorgeous location to use.  There is everything from lava fields, sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, waterfalls, jungles and even some occasional snow.   Outside of Hawaii?   The possibilities are endless and I will enthusiastically travel ANYWHERE in the world.   If you have an idea or vision for your location, please let me know.   I will see if I can find the perfect location for you.


Sometimes, it’s hard to figure out what to wear to a photo session.  Gone are the days of matching outfits.   If you need help picking, I am here to help.   I am always available for questions, outfit brainstorming and ideas.   Here are some tips to help.  Also, check out my Pinterest board for ideas.


Once your date is booked and we’ve figured out a location and any other details we may need, the magic begins. We will take plenty of time, which allows you to relax and enjoy the session. Be prepared to have a LOT of fun, be relaxed and let me create the magic. I promise you, you will be blown away with the results!


Need to reschedule? Only one reschedule is permitted free of charge.   Additional rescheduling is an additional $50.   Please be considerate and inform me at least 24 hours before your scheduled session time.


Your private gallery will be available within 3 – 6 weeks. During the busier times of year (e.g. Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc.), the turnaround time may vary by a week or so.   I will send you an email with a direct link to your password-protected, online gallery.  More about what happens after your session here.


Your gallery will include approximately 50-60 professionally hand edited photos from your session (except for Wiki Wiki Sessions). Wedding packages include all edited images and you can expect between 50-75 images per hour of photography coverage.  Your gallery will remain online for two weeks so that you have time to review, make your selections and request for any minor re-touchups.  This is where you download your digital images.   These images are only printable up to 8 x 10.   Also included in the download are Web versions.   Please use these images for posts to social media and make sure to credit me.

You can also order prints and wall art through the gallery.   The prices posted in the gallery are 20% off regular prices.   Once the gallery expires, there is a $50 fee to re-open the gallery for another 2 weeks.  Prints and products will still be available after the gallery expires at regular prices.

If you want a photo book or album, please contact me.


Cash, major credit cards and Paypal. Personal checks are not accepted.


Due to the customized nature of the products, your product order is non-refundable once the order has been placed through the gallery.

The studio takes utmost care with respect to the development, quality and delivery of images, prints and canvases. For prints and wall art, if the client is not satisfied with the quality or if the product is damaged upon receipt, return for replacement or refund.
