SESSIONS: Suli Sataua Slays Prom 2017

Suli Sataua slayed in her prom dress! Her senior prom theme: fire and ice. But no doubt, when she mixes the two, she is FIERCE. I was excited and nervous for this session. But Suli was wonderful! She killed it in front of my lens and was really fun to take photos of!

Packing Light for a Long Weekend (in Samoa)

15 MAY 2017 I love long weekend getaways. These little trips are lifesavers. I’ve booked my tickets for a long weekend adventure, island hopping to Samoa. It’s still a couple of weeks away, but I haven’t been back there since last year, so I’m excited to go and eat...

CREATE: DIY Altoids watercolor travel palette

8 MAY 2017 One of my favorite things about art is art supplies. I adore looking at them, using them (obviously) and now making them! I’m currently obsessed with the watercolor medium—how amazing it makes everything look, the way the paint flows wherever the water...

SESSIONS: Kelley & Alden (+1)

01 May 2017 At 7 months pregnant, Kelley is still a bombshell in a lavalava. This hot mama and her handsome husband of 7 years are expecting a tama o le motu in June. We spent an afternoon on her home beach attempting to do some underwater photos but after some...

How we help our animals (the fun way)

19 APR 2017 My last blog post (and first ever podcast!) was a little preview of what Coconut Mutts is and how it got started. But beyond the organization, Coconut Mutts is made up of people who genuinely care. Out of love and compassion for our canine and feline...

Listen: What is Coconut Mutts?

9 APR 2017 The dog and cat population in American Samoa is almost 100% mutts. Most are hardy and domesticated, living outside and eating any scraps thrown to them. The problem is, there's only one veterinarian clinic in all of American Samoa. It's housed by the...

Sessions: The Lelauti Family

Monique is a Coconut Point OG. I’ve known Monique since high school, and I think the last time we saw each other was our high school graduation day. We were both considered "cool nerds” and graduated co-valedictorian. We left the island right after for college in the...

Create: February on Paper

February was a good month for my creative process. I got back into journaling and watercolors, took more photos for the fun of it, and challenged myself to #MakeSomething everyday. I’m essentially rekindling my childhood passion for all things analog and DIY. I trust...

Photo Diary: Aunu’u Getaway

Aunu’u is a quiet little island just 15 minutes away by ‘alia (Samoan water taxi). I have visited many times before and for being barely 0.6 square miles, I thought I'd just about explored everything… But this time is different, it is rediscovery with context. It is...

Balancing a Long Weekend

The long weekend was a blessing in disguise. I didn’t make any plans because the weather forecast was expected to be torrential rain and heavy winds. In fact, I wanted to do absolutely nothing—which is hard for me—with the exception of doing at least one productive...

Babbling: Almost 25

I’ve always been the type of person that seeks to accomplish something before a deadline, usually birthdays or yearly goals. I love being able to say that I did it, it’s under my belt, what next? I turn 25 in a month and I’m scrambling to cross off some personal goals...

Swimming with cuties

These cuties really enjoy the ocean and eating salty watermelons. I invited my coworkers and their kids over last weekend for a swim, and it turned into a mini photo shoot of the girls because they are just so darn adorable! Colette and Stuart's daughters are...

Keep Calm. Wander On.
