Oahu Session Planning Guide

Book your session

Capture your family’s joy!

No matter the reason you are in Oahu – family vacation, work trip or you’re simply lucky enough to call paradise home – it’s important to capture your family’s special connection. Every smile, every hug, and every shared moment become priceless memories. With a mix of lifestyle and posed shots, my goal as a family photographer is to freeze those precious and authentic connections and create tangible memories, preserving the beauty of everyday life for you to cherish forever.

I believe the process of having family portraits made should be simple, fun, and most of all RELAXED! The cotton candy skies & tropical turquoise waters of our beautiful Oahu beaches provide the perfect sun-kissed backdrop to capture the love, laughter and togetherness that make your family unique and unforgettable. Together we’ll capture all the everyday moments that make your family YOU.

My process is simple – you book, plan and prepare to have some fun! I can’t wait to meet you and your family!

Hi, I’m Marissa.

As a mom myself, I know how important family is. No matter it’s just your immediate family or multiple generation group I understand the importance of preserving your family’s most precious moments.

My goal is to make this process easy relaxed and fun! I want your session to have piggy back rides, run, jump, kiss, hug, tickle, spin. I love to capture those sweet in-between moments and unique perspectives, so that I can capture photos that are beautiful and unique to your family. All while keeping lighting and the background in mind, to create stunning photos that you will look back on and treasure.

There is nothing like capturing your family on the beaches of Oahu. I photograph families in the surrounding locations including Honolulu, Kailua, Kaneohe, Kapolei, Haleiwa, and various hotels such as the Aulani Disney Resort, Four Seasons Ko’olina, Kahala Hotel, and the Sheraton Waikiki.
