Manning Family Session | Oahu, Hawaii It’s always so rewarding when a family comes back for another session. When I first met the Manning family they HAD just gotten too Oahu. A fellow photographer let me tag along for their session, and they were so sweet to work with. I think little Mila was 5-6 months old? She was so sweet and smiley!

Let’s tackle some of things your photographer really wants you to know.     1- “I’m not paying an arm and a leg for one hour” Oh man I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve heard things like “arm and a leg, reasonable priced, cheap but good”. Let me break it down really quick. You’re paying for WAY more than just an hour. Initial consultation (1hr) Drive there/back (1.5hr), actual shoot (1hr), editing (3-5 hr). I know it feels like a one hour service, but it's really more than that.     2- “You charge to much to click the camera” GASP! This goes hand in hand …
