Why Invest in Professional Images

As busy parents and grandparents, we often are overwhelmed with life and miss opportunities to capture priceless memories. Our children and grandchildren grow so quickly and before our eyes they become young adults. Our families change over time and it is important to have memories that bring joy and preserve our memories and legacy.


We provide an enjoyable experience that not only captures your family moments as they grow yet allows you to present artwork in your home to show your appreciation, value, and love (Aloha). This, in turn, contributes to the families overall well being and happiness.


If you would like to show your Aloha for your family, contact me to start a conversation about how we can create something beautiful together.

Below are some links to videos from PPA that can help clarify details and ease your decision process.

When you hire a photographer, you want the best.

Unfortunately, anyone can claim to be a professional photographer. Correct posing and lighting, the ability to anticipate those once-in-a-lifetime moments and most importantly, extensive experience, can make all the difference in the visual records of your life.


You want to look your absolute best in portraits, whether you are a high school senior, a bride, a parent or anyone else wanting to capture a memory. The Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) Certification program is recognized throughout the industry as a mark of excellence. When you see a photographer displaying the Certified Professional Photographer seal, you can be assured that he or she is among the less than 8% of all imaging professionals who have successfully completed and maintained our requirements.

Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) is a designation granted by the Professional Photographic Certification Commission, the leading certification agency in the world for imaging professionals. 

To assure you of the level of expertise of your photographer, and continuance to develop new skills and techniques, those who have earned the CPP designation:
.    Pass a comprehensive written exam measuring their technical expertise
.    Successfully submit a portfolio of their work to a panel of judges for review and approval
.    Renew credentials every 3 years with continuing education, submitting work for critical evaluation, or retaking the certification exam.
