Fine Family Portraits are truly Family Art Treasures.


A Portrait is an artistic representation of a person or people in which the facial expression is predominant and reveals the likeness, personality and mood. Portraiture is the art of capturing the essence of the subject, whether relationships, personality or emotion, and transposing it to paper, canvas or stone.

Art Portraiture vs Documentary Photos... Anyone with a camera can snap a picture. If you can turn on a light switch and focus, you qualify to operate a fixed-beam "portrait studio" such as found in the "Big Box" outlets. These snapshot portraits are valuable as inexpensive documentary photographs.

Fine art portraiture reached a pinnacle during the "High Renaissance" period with such masters as Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Titian, etc. With the advent of photographic science came the Photographic Portrait Artist. The traditions of fine art portraiture were passed from the painting masters on to photographic artists.

In today's modern world, the magic of photographic science is available to everyone thanks to one-use, "disposable" cameras, digital cameras, and an abundance of one-hour labs and computer printers. Today, everybody is able to enjoy making photographs, and try their hand at being artistic.

As with any vocation, there are some people who are drawn to the art and science of portrait photography, who study it, and dedicate themselves to the artistry of photography as their life's work. I am one such person. And in case you missed it on the Home page, I GUARANTEE you will be Thrilled, not just satisfied with the portraits I make for you! I am dedicated to creating the very finest family portraits you've ever had made, whether in studio, or on location anywhere in Hawaii!___SPC II

Family Portraits are Family Art Treasures

Yes, there are other Family Portrait Photographers in Hawaii who are capable

of making fine family portraits, no question. What sets me apart from all the rest is my Perspective. You see to me, the goal of a Fine Art Family Portrait is to show the relationships, connections and emotion in the family while presenting each individual at their best. In other words, I want to create a piece of ART for you!

First of all, human souls are the epitome of God's physical creation. Families are the very Core of society, and each family is uniquely beautiful. To any individual, their family relationships have unique significance. The point is that every person and every family deserves to have their own, personal, Family Art piece! A true heirloom, Family Art Treasure!

So when looking for an Oahu Portrait Photographer to create your family portraits,

where do you start? If you live on Oahu, or have family or friends here, you can ask people you know to recommend a Honolulu Family Portrait Photographer. And that's a good start. If you're visiting Hawaii, how do you find the right Family Portrait Photographer in Hawaii for you?

In every case you will find that most Hawaii Photographers specialize in wedding photography...not Family Portrait Photography. That's important to know because there is a big difference! If you want a Hawaii Photographer who will create exceptional Family Portraits on Oahu for you, you will do well to choose a Honolulu Photographer who specializes in Family Portrait Photography!

On the other hand, if what you want is a truly fine Family Portrait that you will cherish and be proud to display on a wall in your home, and that will give you joy for years to come, you will be rewarded for your investment of time in researching for a real Professional Hawaii Photographer who specializes in fine Family Portrait Photography on Oahu.

Don't delay or put this off...Because I do all the photography, previews, and artwork myself, I can only accomodate two family portrait sessions per week.

A Photograph is a Photograph...Right?....

There are two basic genres of portraiture: Literal, and Interpretive. Within these genres there are many styles defined by lighting, pose, camera angle and props. Literal Portraits are documentary in nature and have the subject(s) looking back at the viewer, and usually in an obviously posed posture. Interpretive Portraits have a more candid appearance where the subject(s) are not looking back at the viewer, and appear to be involved in some kind of activity. But what really makes the difference in a fine family portrait is the time, sensitivity and care that the artist puts into the creation of your portrait!

Why I Love Making Family Portraits in Hawaii

Growing up with two older sisters and two older brothers, and both parents was a wonderful, hopeful, exciting and sometimes even a little bit scary experience for me. (Older brothers can be ruthless...) I fondly remember the "Family Room" in our house, and Family Nights when we'd all go to a matinee movie, then have dinner together, then maybe a board game or watch a special TV show. I remember there were portraits in the Family Room and Living Room as well as snapshots all down the hallway my mom referred to as the "Rogues Gallery". Unfortunately for me, over the years many of these family heirlooms have been lost. So you see I have a real understanding of the value of fine, artistic family portraits that capture and preserve the individual personalities within the whole family dynamic. I have always been drawn to art...(excuse pun, please..). I've always enjoyed looking at art, and I've always loved creating art! I love art in drawing, painting, and sculpture. I also love art in music, poetry, performance, and I love art photography. I love creating Family Portraits because I have a great appreciation for family portraits personally. And because I love making art with special meaning.
