Aloha! I wanted introduce myself and to give a warm welcome to all the amazing people (especially my fellow moms!) I met this past weekend at the New Baby Expo. What an experience- I wish I’d had more time to browse all the vendors, and I’m jealous we didn’t have all these products and resources when my own kids were tiny!
I’m Lisa, and a mom to three boys, ages 13, 10, and 7 (turning 8 next month). I live in Kailua (just five blocks from my studio!) and we have two talkative Siamese cats, two friendly hens, and one goldfish so life is never dull. I like to say if babies would stay small just a little longer, I’d have a dozen- but they don’t, so I get to cuddle other people’s babies instead!
I love supporting local businesses, so if I’m not following you yet comment and I’ll make sure to follow back right away. If you’d like to put your cards in my studio I’m happy to do so- come by Wednesdays from about 8:45am-11:15am when I’m in for Walk in Wednesdays.
Confession: I can’t do caffeine, so chocolate (preferably dark) is how I get through long days and nights editing and doing all the paperwork that goes along with being a small business. I do most of my editing (and email!) from around 9am-midnight.
If there’s anything else you’d like to know about me, just ask!

Just accept the fact that I’m posting more than normal today
When you have a happy baby and beautiful weather you grab all the photos you can
Let’s get your Little’s behind miss Brooke’s camera!
DM me to schedule your session! @george_hats
I am so blessed to say that I am booked until August 💕 Florida and Hawaii babes, can’t wait to see you again!
And here another beautiful maternity session. Congrats L+J on your little bundle of joy! 😍
Now that the cat is out of the bag I can finally post! I mentioned in passing to a friend of mine how bad I was wanting to do a pregnancy announcement and just like that she blurted out that a mutual friend of ours was expecting and I felt like that was the biggest sign that I was meant for this shoot.
has the cutest family. If anyone know Aurora you know she is the sassiest, most expressive little four year old you have ever met. I first met little miss during @ash.lynn.rae
's wedding and I felt so awkward talking to Kelsey like "hey I know we just met but let me take pictures of your child- I swear I'm not a creep but she's literally like the cutest kid"
Fast forward to friday morning at ridiculously early-am Aurora could not wrap her head around the thought of a baby in mommy's belly and asked if the ultrasound was a picture of a parrot.
Once it finally clicked she was telling me alll about what names she had chosen for her new sibling and that she wanted a baby sister but that she would still love the baby if it was a boy (she's so kind lol)
This session meant a lot to me. I can honestly say I haven't teared up at a wedding or session in quite awhile but let me tell you, my allergies were STRONG friday morning. I blamed the vog but Kelsey's story has stuck in my heart since we first met and I've grown to really care about her and her growing family. I'm so thankful that the stars aligned and God put this session in my life because it really touched my heart and I feel like in a small way I was able to be apart of their journey. 🙏🏼

Why do we all get so caught up in the amount of followers we have? .
This is an honest question. I never truly understood it and quite frankly could care less if I had a small following VS a large one. I actually prefer the first if it means a few things. .
True engagement and interaction between us. I want to interact with YOU! I love when people comment on my posts and I love staying connected with everyone! It’s more important to me to have people following me who truly love my work and love seeing my images and my captions pop up in their feed. I want people to follow me who actually want to know me and what my brand is all about. If you follow me, you’re going to be seeing a lot of personal posts because I am my brand. My family is my brand. And my daughter is the whole reason behind my brand. I’m not trying to become famous or anything... I’m just a small town girl, who feels emotions from the depths of her soul, who is moved by meaningful and emotional images. I just want to capture special memories between you and your family that you can cherish forever. I want my followers to feel something when they see my images and maybe even take something away from them and the captions.
Forget about how many people are following you and remember it’s all about those people who truly believe and support you and your brand.
It was my first time shooting at this location and I just loved!! Who wants to have a session there? Flower crown is from @ocean_dreamerr

Channeling light & using it as a giant soft box.
Fun little beach session. It’s a challenge to get everyone to actually look at you the same time. 🤦🏽♀️ Photography problem. 💄@islandgirlbeautyservices
