I will be doing some mini sessions this fall, and a handful of other
sessions that have already inquired, but really, that’s it.
That’s right, Tesoro Photography will not be available for
sessions beyond those I am booking already, and then the mini sessions I
will announce this week.
No, I’m not quitting. Just taking a hiatus. It’s time. Time to spend
doing pre-school with my kids. Time to play without the burden of photo
shoots to edit on my back. Time to regain some creativity. Doing
projects like those I’ve found on Pinterest. Time to clean and organize
and purge and pack. Well, maybe not.
If we are still here after January, I think the earliest I foresee re-opening shop would be March.

I first fell for photography when I was little, shooting snails
and rosebushes with my little 110mm camera. As I grew older, I realized
it was people I really loved to photograph. After high school, I studied
photography at the University of the Nations in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. I
at a film and print lab for a year, shooting on my own here and there.
(The first few weddings I shot were in film! ) Then I spent the next two
years working as a lead photographer for a local studio, where I
predominantly shot weddings and designed albums. I married my husband,
Randy, in 2006 and we had our first little cuddlebug in March of 2008,
and our second in June 2009. (Phew, I know that was fast, but we
wouldn't trade them for anything!) I LOVE being a mom. I also LOVE
sushi, stationery, fast lenses and my Lord and Savior, Jesus. I grew up
speaking English and Spanish, hence the name of our company, "Tesoro,"
which means "treasure."
I have been interested in photography for a while, but of
course, when I met Mel, I really got into it. I have been her assistant
and second shooter for a couple of years now, and she tells me I rock.
