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.”

NEW Model Feature: Michaela

sphoto, sphotohi, sphotohawaii, hawaii, hawaii model, model photography, michaela spaulding, street photography, photography, bikini, asian, dslr, t1iThis is Michaela, aka Kayla.  A 21 year old college student who moved to the island from Fairbanks, AK to take up political science at UH.  Although amazing at what she does when she’s in front of the camera, off camera, not only is she smart, but she’s hella friendly, easy going, and over all a chill person to hang and make conversations with.  I typically found her through instagram, basically the biggest directory out there when looking for someone to shoot with lol, and just dm’d her to schedule something.  Some months down the line, here you are checking up on what the team and I curated from the shoot we had with Michaela this passed weekend.  I’ll let her feature do the rest of the talking.

Check it out by clicking on her photo above or click here.  Not only is it filled with tons of awesome photos, but also the sick video coverage my partners brewed up!

Don’t forget to follow us on instagram and show some love!  We give that love right back!

Linked up with @msjazzminerie one day after she hit me up to shoot mentioning she liked my style of shooting.  Before, when I first started photography, I thought shoots at the beach were the best things to do, because I mean we live on an island and it’s not that hard to find a nice beach to take pictures lol.  But as I grew more with my photography, I thought beach shoots were so cliche.  Typical.  Basically what you assume to see when you hear of photographers from Hawaii.  I decided I wanted to stray away from the beautiful beaches (don’t get me wrong, shooting at the beach will turn out beautiful pictures) and showcase the streets of Hawaii instead.  Going for a more urban look now days.  I still shoot at the beach here and there but my niche now is the streets.  Check out Jazz’s photo set by clicking here or clicking her photo above.  Don’t forget to follow her and myself as well on instagram!

We finally had the same day off and I always wanted to shoot this outfit on her because I really liked the look of this jacket she got recently from Brandy Melville.  I paired it with her Calvin Klein top she’s wearing and originally I wanted her in joggers/leggings, but she pulled the style together with some black denim.  I even had her style her hair like this.  So credit all goes to me her loving boyfriend lol.  But I have to say that she’s getting even better and becoming less camera shy every time we shoot together!  Check out the rest of her photos by clicking the photo above or clicking here.
