Pinao' (pee-nah-oh) is the Hawaiian word for ‘dragonfly’. A dragonfly represents renewal, positive forces and power of life. The animal symbolism of a dragonfly is associated with good luck, prosperity, swiftness, strength, peace, purity and harmony.

Greetings! Thank you for visiting! My name is Hilary. I live in the Salem, OR area. I'm a mother of 3, a wife to my best friend/soulmate, a sister,  daughter, aunt, and a friend, who is full of heart, passion,  fun, and determination.

Photography has been a passion of mine since I was a young child. I didn't decide to pursue it more seriously until my adult years (2012 to be exact). I love how a photograph can catch a moment that will be gone forever. It leaves behind a visual memento to go along with the story, and adds to the nostalgia and reminiscing. That's the good stuff!

I mainly specialize in portrait photography, though I tend to branch out and do something else from time to time. I don't have a consistent photography style, by choice. I like variety. This also allows me to try new things and display the results.  

Just a couple important pieces of information for you :

-My photography business is not my full-time career. It comes in second. While my availability is limited, it also flexible. 

-I am a one person business. However, I do know other photographers who are willing to team up with me, if needed.

-I am willing to travel long distance for a session, if available, and for  an additional fee.

I look forward to meeting you!
