About the image…
Why do you love this image?
I love the composition that I created, the geometric shapes, the rich contrast and how I placed babies hands.
What were your settings with this image?
ISO 200, f/1.8, 1/500ss, 50mm lens.
What do you love about Photography?
I love the creative freedom that I have when picking up a camera. It really provides endless amounts of opportunity for me to explore new creative ideas. Not only can I photograph newborns but I can also photograph all ages, groups, landscape and macros…it’s endless!
What type of Photography do you specialize in and why?
I specialize in newborns. When I first ventured into the world of photography it was soley due to an experience that I had with a local newborn photographer that I had hired to photograph my darling son at 8 days old. I was so fascinated by what she was doing. When I saw the final images I was even more captivated and I knew it was something that I needed to explore in the future.
Where are you from?
Born in Hawaii and raised in S. Calif.
What are your favorite hobbies and pastimes?
I love traveling. My husband and I traveled a lot before we had our children and a trip to Kauai was always on our agenda each year and still is as parents something we try to do every year. I also recently took up knitting and I enjoy that a lot.
Do you have a dream to photograph one specific person? Who would it be and why?
Hmmmm….I’ve been dreaming of shooting my father and my children. I have yet to do it.
Who are some of your favorite singers/bands?
Gosh hmmm… It’s been so long since I’ve enjoyed music for myself. Currently, I listen to a lot of children’s music. LOL.
What is your favorite movie of all time?
“Australia” with Nicole Kidman. I could watch that a over and over again!
What would your ideal day be like?
It would be 1/3 day of accomplishments, 1/3 day with family, 1/3 day for myself.
If you weren’t a photographer, what other profession would you like to pursue?
It would definitely be something in the creative field. I am a graphic designer and worked freelance for many years and loved it. I have studied interior design and I love that too. I am also interested in designing a kids clothing line someday. I use to design and sew all my clothing when I was younger.
