Holiday Sessions 2018

Thank you for booking your holiday 2018 session!  At this time, I am no longer taking anymore appointments!  Appreciate your support and entrusting me to capture these lifetime memories for you!

Hi friends!  Thank you for your patience with this upcoming holiday photo shoot schedule.  My computer is currently in the repair shop getting diagnosed and will hopefully be fixed in a week (CROSSING FINGERS!)  I really have a love hate relationship with technology. *UPDATE – It’s on the mend – woo hoo!  A new power source and an upgrade to a Solid State Drive!  For all your computer needs and data recovery, go see Hip at H Power Computing!  They are the best!

Anyways, here is the information for this year.  As in previous years, I will be stacking sessions, so if you are interested in a particular date, please email me at to reserve your spot.  I am also available most days after work (around 5 pm) if this works better for your schedule and can meet you at any town location of your choice: Honolulu Hale, KCC Cactus Garden, Kapiolani Park/Fountains, Kakaako, Portlock Beach, Tantlus, downtown or any other town location you have in mind.  Email me!


PRICING: $350 (session fee + downloadable link to all edited images)
- 30 minute session for up to 5 people ($20 each additional person)
- Approximately 20 edited images
- All professionally edited images in high resolution & copyright release (where you are free to take wherever you like for prints, holiday cards, canvases, gifts, etc).

Cash preferred but if paying with check, you can make it payable to: Sherilyn Kusuda Photography

TIMES:  Since I will be stacking sessions, please be PROMPT as the next sessions will be held up if you are late.

LOCATIONS: As the sessions get booked, I will put your name next to the time. Please ensure it is on the correct date/time. Even if the locations are similar to past years, the key to awesome pictures are outfits!  They do NOT have to be matchy matchy.  Some of my favorite brands for photos are Zara Kids, H&M, Gap, Banana Republic & Old Navy. Also mamas – please put heavier makeup as you will get washed out in the pictures if it’s too light!

If you are here or thinking of family photos this year, don’t wait.  I am a photographer and I really really regret not taking my own family photos every year.  The last family photo I have is from 4 years ago when I hired a photographer in Canada to take family photos during a vacation to Vancouver.  Time is flying by so quickly, so this year, I vow to take my own family photos EVERY year (documenting this to make me accountable) starting THIS year!  I appreciate you entrusting me to document your family; many families over 10+ years! 

With gratitude –
