Had a beach day with the girlfriend and a few of the homies this past weekend. Brought them back to the same beach @shaz_v and I did the last video together. Last time the 2 of us went, we weren’t prepared because all I had in mind was to shoot a video at the time and boy did I regret it! It was so hot that day that all I could think about was swimming, but all I brought were the clothes I was wearing and my camera. This time we planned it out and brought a tent, drinks, food, and everything else anyone would bring to the beach to have a good time! This took place on the North Shore of Oahu. To be honest with you, I have no idea what the name of this beach is, but it isn’t as busy as most beaches here on the island and it stretched pretty far, so there literally was all the space in the world at this spot. No more searching almost half the beach for a spot to kick it lol. We stayed all the way til sunset, and I gotta say, this day was a good day.

For those who don’t already know, yes this is my gorgeous girlfriend, Shaz lol. This was a spontaneous beach day, on a Sunday afternoon. It was so hot that day and we were both off (we rarely get the same days off), so it was her idea to head to the beach and I figured might as well make use of the day and shoot a video and photos too to see where I’m stand ever since I jumped into the video side of things! We went down to some beach at the North Shore. I don’t know the name of it but it was one of those beaches that was literally on the side of the highway (if you ever been down that side, and I know many locals have, but if you’re not from here, there are many beaches you can visit down at the north shore). Before that we took a stroll through Haleiwa (a MUST SEE place if you’re ever visiting Oahu) to play tourist a bit and grab some food for the beach. Let me tell you though, because this was a spontaneous trip, we were definitely NOT prepared! lol. We arrived there around 430ish and the sun hadn’t gone down enough to where the beach is bearable, so we regretted not bringing enough drinks and a tent lol. So we set up our beach blanket on the sand and just endured the sun and enjoyed our Sunday. I have to admit though, it was relaxing minus the hot sun and sweating so much (because I didn’t bring swim shorts on the count that I wasn’t planning to swim but boy did I regret that), plus I shot whatever I could before I was over everything because of the heat lol. Anyways, if you wanna see the rest of the photos and the video that was taken that day, click on the photo above!

Alright, so this took me a while to actually convince myself into taking up videos because, 1) I hate learning new things and 2) I hate that on top of learning something new, I’ll have to figure out a workflow from what I’m comfortable with already. But on the other hand, I felt as if I was at a “block” with my photography and (of course there’s many many many more things for me to learn) felt at my “max” as of today. Like I said, it took me a while to convince myself, but I thought about it and realized that I should take a break from photography (I’m not completely stopping. I’ll just be focusing on learning everything I can with videos now.) and acquire a new skill that can benefit me in the future! I know I said I hate learning, hate this, hate that, but I also LOVE learning new things if it’s beneficial. I love that learning something new can open not only your mind, but also your doors of opportunity in the future.
This day me and the boo went to Lanikai beach to just relax and enjoy our day off together. It was a windy and cold day at the beach tho so no swimming was involved and we just sat on the sand and people watched and I got to practice shooting. Keeping this short, here’s my very first video and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it. Feel free to leave me comments and share this video if you please.
Over this past weekend, my girlfriend’s family was back home on the island, from WA, where they reside now. We did a whole bunch of fun stuff while they were here and for the last weekend, they rented a beach house out in Makaha. It was a tropical getaway. I didn’t want the weekend to end! The view was great too so we had to take pictures while we were there since we probably would never go back there anytime soon! Check out the set by clicking on the photo above or click here. I’ll be posting a bit more in my journal touching on some things from the beach house. So look out for that!
I know I post a lot of model portraits, but don’t let that stop you from thinking I can’t shoot anything else! Did this sunset maternity shoot for friends of a friend in July. This was before they were heading back home to Vegas and they requested to have some maternity shots done. My friend asked me and I happily agreed to do it. I like shooting maternity photos because to me, it’s such an important thing to document, especially if it’s going to be your first child, I mean why wouldn’t you want some memories?!

Linked up with @aloha_mmdi to shoot their latest swimsuit drop, “Pineapple Aloha”, which drops today (6.9.17)! No long intro’s for this one.
Big shouts to @keeeraah (you’ll find out soon who she is) for choosing us to be a part of this project! Here is a few nice words she had for the crew and I. “Huge thank you to Sean, Brandon, Kalen, and Jaysen for being a part of this project with us and helping us make this vision come to life! Also, for helping me down the hike lol.”
