I am so dang glad that you are here! This island girl wants to go on an adventure with you and tell your story. I love talking story and getting to know people... especially those "how we met" stories. If I'm not adventuring with you I'll most likely be with family and friends, reading a good book, or watching some Japanese anime.

I’m Kristen Iwalani

hello there

She made us feel so comfortable and relaxed right away. As people who aren't the most comfortable in front of the camera, Kristen provided tons of guidance and encouragement to be ourselves. She also took my ideas of what I wanted and made them to reality. We couldn't be happier with how our photos turned out. I highly recommend her.

"We absolutley loved our session with Kristen iwlani!"

what are you here for?
