About

01. our philosophy

I have to thank my dad for giving me an old film camera at age 16 many years ago...that began my passion for photography and love of documenting the simple moments in life.  With authentic island-recognizable style, top rated customer service, 195+ 5 star Facebook Reviews, plus over 70 more 5 star reviews on our google page with thousands of happy clients, it's no wonder why we are rated Oahu's favorite portrait company. Style sets us apart from the rest with a turn around time of 1-2 days for your photos and a 100% satisfaction guarantee! We specialize in maternity to baby's first year here in Hawaii.

Documenting the moments in between

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our motto is 'life is art'.  Your photos should portray exactly Who you truly are. Therefore, your images should express organic interaction, playful candid moments that happen because your family is uniquely special.
if you're looking for a "posed" experience, I am not your photographer. Customer service is top priority, it isn't about just me taking your photos, but rather the memories of having the beautiful experience and what you remember about them being taken.

Christie is passionate about life and that love and energy shows through in every image she takes. She loves chocolate, hiking, swimming, spending time with her 5 children and doing design work on the side.  Born in Texas means she's all heart and may say interesting phrases like "fixin' to" and might also call you, "ya'll"...She's always up for a new adventure and loves to explore new places on Oahu!

Christie was a true professional for our maternity photos. She was speedy and had exactly what we wanted in mind. Her editing was phenomenal and really quick as well. I was incredibly happy with the whole process and look forward to working with her again.

I got in touch with Christie for our maternity pictures that were going to be so very special to us being that we are a couple that went through 5 years of infertility! Christie not only went around our schedule , she went out of her way by making this session so very special by buying a rainbow dream catcher for us for a prop. This baby is our rainbow miracle Baby and the fact that she took the time to personalize such a special day meant the world. I will forever remember and have this pictures in my heart ❤️ thank you aloha storyteller for capturing such a special moment in our lives. We will forever be grateful.
