Behind the Camera - Pinao Images by Hilary

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 Portland, OR metropolitan area. I'm a mother of 3, a wife to my best friend/soulmate, a sister, a daughter, an aunt, and a friend, who is full of heart, passion,  fun, and determination. Photography has been my passion since I was a young child. Many who know me will tell you that I always was, and still am, the one with the camera in hand during get-togethers, events, etc! A photograph is a moment that is frozen in time. It captures a moment that is gone forever; which is the exact reason I decided to pursue portrait photography more seriously. Why settle for only a memory when you can have a photograph to go along with the story?

Whatever the occasion - portraits of families, children, animals, individuals, seniors, baby bellies, births, weddings, boudoir, surprise engagements, parties, and more - I look forward to meeting you and providing you, your family, and your friends with the 'Pinao Images' that capture memorable moments, images, and contribute to your lifetime of stories!

Just a couple important pieces of information for you :

-My photography business is not my full-time career. It comes in second. I do have a primary full-time job, therefore my availability is limited, but also flexible. Contact me for further details!  In addition, this does impact the timing on when your images will be delivered (up to 4-6 weeks at times).

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

-I am willing to travel long distance for a shoot if available and for  an additional fee. Contact me for details!

Talk to you soon!
