Photo Visions Hawaii ~The Studio~

Okay everyone, it's been about 2 months since we've moved back to Laie from Maui, the Valley Isle and we've been unpacking, getting settled and working on setting up our home-based studio. Just thought I'd share a quick sneak peak of the space - still in progress. I am ordering some large canvas prints and various other images for display to replace Photo Visions "older" images from a decade ago. Our style has evolved to appeal to a broader range of clients- from the traditional to the contemporary and everywhere in between! Stay tuned for more images of when we actually put some pictures on the wall.

Ooooh, I almost forgot to mention, we are in the designing phase of a super cool project for outdoor shoots going on at our hale involving legal graffiti and various other backgrounds. When all projects are done we'll host an open house! How does it look so far???

Welcome Baby Kealana!

Isn't she beautiful? Daughter number four to Paoa and Alika, Kealana made her grand entrance on lucky 8/8/08. Dad is a fireman and also serves in the military. These captures were made on 8/21/08 just two days before daddy Alika was deployed for the 3rd time to Irag. I admire the courage of this beautiful family and their story of personal endurance as well as Alika's dedication to our country and sacrifice for our freedom. Please enjoy these precious images as I have enjoyed creating them. See SLIDESHOW link below photo.

NEGLECTED!!! Why the blog has not received any love for awhile...

Well...I have some explaining to do don't I? If you've noticed that I haven't blogged in months, THIS is the reason WHY!!!
Now that I'm feeling better and have "recovered" from severe morning sickness, I had the awesome opportunity to be on the other side of the camera for my personal maternity session. Photographers Chris and Lynn Jaska from Vancouver, B.C. were in Hawaii this past month and I was honored to have been photographed by this talented husband and wife photography team.

Their work is inspiring and I feel so fortunate to have these beautiful images to document this special time in my life. I've been blogged! Visit Chris and Lynn's site to view their phenomenal work.
