travail récent


Dans l'œil des spectateurs

What is it about photographers who have that amazing touch to
capture those moments we live in and want to relive?  They seem to be invisible patron saints that blend into the walls of the room and conversation.  They are welcomed in to stages of our most important seasons of our lives and are only noticeable when the sound of their shutter flicker goes off and then you realize….

“oh man, what was i doing when they took that photo” 

and then,,,,after much review and editing….the moments of our lives, the moments we didn’t realize the camera had captured that quick look in our eyes or that soft gesture or movement of a hand. All the little details that make such a big impact on that moment in time…frozen in paper..
. before us….as a printed emotion- that moment, thought, smell, music…it all comes whispering back to us.
A few of my favorite moments – captured by my amazing and talented patron saints that quietly blend are here and i wish to 
 – Thank you talented photographers for your enduring, compassionate eye, quick finger on the trigger  and choice of edit lighting
…all together—-leaves me breathless.

This business is a funny little machine that runs on imagination, creativity, strong people skills, ability to move quickly, a strong back, bucket love or hate for that matter, the ability to prepare the most awesome tool box
 tape?- check, pins?- check, tire fix it kit?- check, coffee?-uhhh, 32oz. check!

and always…Always be prepared for the unseen…
 {rain, flower death, electrical mishaps, traffic and your occasional family feuds}

And with all those things that run and keep this business going,,,its the families,
friends, Mother’s & Daughters that inspire me.

 I have had the amazing blessing to be welcomed into the inner circle of  families on one of their most triumphant moments, finding myself a witness to the covered emotions waiting to explode at the moment of giving a daughter away and gaining a son, or vice versa—filled with hopes by this beauty of celebrating love
. Each family has left a lasting vivid impression

The Bride- Stunning
The Groom – Stunned
The Party – Outstanding
Me – Tired but elated

This past weekend brought the close of a celebration of a family, that I have come
to adore. Their daughter married a sweetheart of a man and their future is huge! To let you know what type of love these two have, they chose to visit the hospital with me, one day after their ceremony, to hand out flowers to patients going through chemotherapy treatment.  Each person that came in contact with them today, were touched by their beginning as husband and wife….to stop and bless others, when; this, their moment to be all consumed by eachother and Maui, didn’t seem to matter at this moment.

All because a boy fell in love with a girl and we all stood back in awe.


Visiting ST. Josephs Hospital, arms filled with their wedding flowers and hearts full of compassion.

 Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out values all the utilities of the world
. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844
Here…in the few photos below are gathered petals.. proud assertions we
have had the great pleasure of gathering, styling, taking in the aroma of each flower and twining together with a beautiful silk ribbon
{The Bouquet}
like the Bride herself are the show stoppers
as she walks the bridal aisle, step – pause – step…She and her bouquet
this – the moment when every thought of
love, hope, planning, commitment, future and excitement come together
all held with in the palm of her hands
