The Finau Family Reunion..

What a beautiful family... Can you believe this is a Finau family and they are NOT related to my husband (I thought only the Smiths, Johnsons, and Hansens had that problem.. lol).. After getting off to a late start (thanks Sia for the wrong things went pretty smoothly, this family is very polite and the kids are well mannered, they listened to directions and every family shot went pretty quickly.. I love those kinds of shoots.. As you can see the Finau Family is very beautiful, I could feel the love they all have for one another as I watched them transact with each other, the younger taking care of the their elder, the way cousins play with each other turning everyone into their brother and sisters.. It was great to experience this.. Thank you Finau family for letting me save your memories through a picture..

Learning from Photography by Maka

I got to go on a wedding shoot with Photography by Maka.. Let me tell you he is one of the best.. His photography skills along with his people skills make a wedding shoot very calm and very easy flowing.. The wedding party transitioned from shot to shot with ease due to Maka's direction, that's how every wedding should be.. Thanks for letting me tag a long Maka it was great learning from you, and it was great meeting you Alvin.. Hope we get to shoot together again I had a blast...

Cottonwood High Luau

When I got a phone call and was asked to come and shoot this Luau for Cottonwood High Football team, I was so excited to.. It gave me a reason to play with my camera. A show and Dinner for a good cause and I get to take pictures, what else does a person want.. LOL..
Let me tell you I had NO idea how big the event was going to be, I got their late (story of my life) and started shooting inside the auditorium because the show had started already, walked past a ton of stuff going on in the cafeteria area thought to myself there must be something else going on also.. After shooting inside, asked my cuz Rita whats next and she goes on with a whole list of stuff if I've shot outside the basket drawings, the food, the band, the kids dancing I look at her and go oh thats part of it too.. (Note to self ask someone about the event before I show up)
What a great community of support this school has, I was amazed and very impressed with the amount of support both from families and the community.. The food was great the entertainment great the band great and the photographer SLOW.. Next time I will up my game, I promise..
Thanks for inviting me Misi despite what your mom says I'm your biggest FAN..
