Welcome to my Blog!

Welcome to my blog! My name is Lysandra I am the luckiest person I know. I live and work on the windward side of beautiful Oahu, Hawaii. I love what I do. I have a terrific family that appreciates my innate need to re-create the beauty around me in photographs. My clients and their most joyful, real moments are the primary source of that beauty - and our gorgeous Oahu scenery is the perfect backdrop. My style has been described as lush, romantic, vibrant, natural, relaxed, and carefree.

Although I am based on the windward side of Oahu, I love to travel! Just ask about service across Oahu, to the outer islands, or to the mainland.

I am a proud volunteer for Operation Love ReUnited, which serves our deployed military service members and their families. I believe in giving them something to which they can hold on, during a time of letting go. I am also a member of HeArts Speaks, which connects photographers with animal rescues.

Missing Daddy: Lysandra Cook Hawaii Family Photography

I had the pleasure of meeting Barbara and her wonderful boys at Waimanalo Beach Park. The boys were real charmers and I am sure they must take after Daddy. They had the most gorgeous blue yes ever!

We started in the trees with the classic smiles for the camera, I know the top shot is one my grandmother would love. The bottom show the joy and fun Barbara and her boys share.


Next we headed down to the shore for a little fun. Waimanalo is such a beautiful beach. And the water was so warm!


I couldn't leave without a few shots of this beautiful mom who is a true hero, holding down the fort while Daddy is away.


And then the reason we were meeting. To tell Daddy he is missed while he is overseas defending our country. Come home safe, you have a lot of love waiting for you!

I can’t even start to express how much I appreciate you participating in the Oplove Program. My husband is going to be sooo excited to get this gift in the mail. Deployments are an extremely hard time for military families so it was very important for me to show my husband how much we love and miss him but at the same time show him we are doing well. Your images did exactly that, so thank you very much. We really enjoyed spending the evening with you especially Landon (he loved all the toys you brought for him to play with ;). I hope we will get to work with you again in the future and I can’t wait to see all the images. This sneak peek has gotten me very excited!!!!
