If you know me, then you know how much I love to read. I get fascinated with stories from all over the world, real and fiction. It's no wonder that my favorite thing to do is story-tell with photography. 

all about me! 

I totally believe that every little win in life, deserves to be documented. I've been romanticizing life by taking photos of all the little things I do since I was 12 years old! I think it's so important to never take life for granted and appreciate everything around me. I started photography as a little hobby since I was little. I was always taking photos for my younger sister and family photos for our friends and family. Right out of high school, I decided to make a career out of it. Even when I'm not working, I'm taking photos of and with all the people I love dearly!

I've been doing professional photography for 5 years on the Hawaiian islands. Being born and raised on O'ahu, I love that I get to share my love for the island with people that I meet from around the world and get to take their photos with the gorgeous landscapes the island has to offer.

Taking photos is my love language!

“Jy has such a beautiful eye for posing couples.”

Got pics for our 10 year anniversary - SO in love with them! Jy has such a beautiful eye for posing couples. I actually saw her taking someone else's pictures on the beach and watched how beautifully she was posing people and went up to her and asked her for her info haha. She is darling and fabulous to work with. Highly recommend!

“She made us feel really comfortable."

Jy was so good to my fiancé and I. She took me in last minute - about one week prior. Hawaii’s weather can be unpredictable. The day we scheduled began to rain so she pushed us in her schedule to do the next day and I’m so glad we did because the weather was the total opposite. The pictures turned out so beautifully. She made us feel really comfortable. I’m awkward in front of the camera but Jy guided us on what to do and how to pose. Thanks again for being so hospitable Jy!
