Barbara was born and raised on the island of O'ahu, Hawai'i, where she still happily resides with her 4 children. Barbara's passion for photography started off in high school, where she learned to work with film and develop her photos in the darkroom. In fact, her first job was as a photographer, taking pictures of tourists.  

Photography was put on hold for a bit as she became a mother and focused on raising her children. But motherhood only solidified her passion for taking pictures. Since then, Barbara has not been able to put down her camera, constantly taking pictures of not only her children, but anything and everything else in between. Soon after, friends and family began asking her to take photos for them...and the rest is history.
