Meet my wife, Danielle,
and our beautiful boys.

This blog is written by a tired father of two little boys who spends more time than he would like wandering the house saying things like, "Leave my socks alone!" But when he's coherent he writes about pizza, life in Maui, and his exciting career as a wedding and portrait photographer...

Janae and Steve came to Maui to celebrate their second anniversary, a milestone for any couple. They walk together with a comfort level normally seen in more seasoned relationships, and yet the looks they give each other still contain hints of those newly-wedded honey glows.

Get to know your clients, guys. It pays! In the photo below you’ll see one very unhappy little 4-year-old boy. He was not in the mood for pictures that day. Despite his family’s awesome two week vacation on Maui, he was tired and grumpy. I felt bad for the Little Guy.     As I worked with […]

The first time Vanessa was in front of my camera was her brother Jason’s wedding in 2009. She wasn’t even a teenager then, but she had her brother’s charm, a charm that seems to run in her whole family—her brother is the nicest guy in the world (no, really); her older sister Fawn is the most […]

Pinterest is, for most people, a wonderful epicenter of creative ideas. For most photographers, however, Pinterest is the bane of our existence, especially if you’re a photographer who does baby and infant photography. Every parent has seen those wonderful baby photos on Pinterest—the collection of perfectly captured, one-in-a-million, super-duper adorable, contest-winning portraits—and when they bring […]

My wife and I made a parody rap video in 2013 that landed us on national TV! We got an all-expenses paid trip to New York City and a spot on Katie Couric's daytime talk show where we won $594. The video at right is a short excerpt of our appearance on Katie's show.
