Portrait Session: Laie, HI.

Shanae was one of the gazillion people who offered to model for me. I so wish I could shoot all of you, but there just aren't enough hours in the day!! This girl was sooo easy to photograph. We had some serious fun kickin' it together! . . . and we learned first hand that there are a lot of strange restrictions to photography at certain equally as strange locations here in Laie. ;)

PS- The hot bod you see below has totally born 2 kiddos. I know! Not fair right??!






My two favorite shots of the day. . . quite possibly two of my favorite portraits of my life. . .


Thanks to Kealohi for assisting!

Hi Natalie,
I just came across your blog a few days ago and have been really impressed with your work. I also like how much of your personality comes through in your images and your writing. I was born and raised in Honolulu so seeing shots of home also makes me smile.

All the best,
Miki

These shots are really incredible. Absolutely love the fifth from the top...chin, mouth, nose, shoulder...my absolute favorite.

You can tell so much about this person even from that shot.

Looks like you guys had fun.
