sessions we offer
I’m a slow living (recovering-corporate-climber!) toddler-mom with a camera and a serious love affair with my island home (Hawaii born and raised!).
And the first thing you should know is that my superpower is putting people at ease.
Because honestly? Anyone can pick up a camera and push a button...
But making you feel taken care of? Comfortable? Seen? That’s the most important part of my work.
And after photographing over 500 families, I’ve gotten pretty good at it ;)
As a parent myself I know time goes way too fast and I love helping clients capture these fleeting moments.
When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me cooking up elaborate bowls of ramen with my husband or supporting other creative entrepreneurs growing their business.

meet the team
It was a few years in when I realized something had to change…
I’d started my photography business to deliver an unforgettable experience to my clients and, you know, gorgeous images of their time in Hawaii...
But I was burning the candle at both ends. Shooting. Editing. Marketing. Taxes. I did it all.
And that meant I couldn’t deliver the way I wanted to.
Plus, I was booking out months in advance and I hated the thought of continuing to turn down amazing people because I couldn’t squeeze in another session...

I decided I wanted more families to get my signature (stress-free!) Wilde Sparrow experience and went from a one-woman-show to a team effort.
With the extra support, I’ve been able to expand our services while maintaining the highest quality of work for clients and an effortless, high-touch experience every step of the way.
Listen: I don’t just hire anyone to work within my brand.
Every new associate goes through hands-on, deep-dive training sessions in my signature style of photography and session flow. If I’m not personally available for your travel dates you can book an associate photographer from the Wilde Sparrow team.
My editing team edits your images in my specific style and our booking manager makes booking your session a breeze.
Hear me now, believe me later: you’re in the best hands. Promise!
