Expressions is a locally run photography company that specializes in outdoor photo sessions, in-studio sessions, photo booths, event photography, and more.
Its team is trained to give you a personalized photo session with great customer service.
Right now, the most popular photography session is senior portraits. Over the summer, more than 2,000 high school students from across the island came in to take their graduation photos.
“Some of them bring in their sporting attire, some of them bring in their surfboards, anything really to personalize their session,” said owner Jon Bello. “Within a few minutes after their session, they get to hop onto one of the computers, take a look at them, and choose which one they want for their packages, and we also offer digital files as well so they can take it, manipulate it on their own, and print it if they want to.”
While taking staged photos might be uncomfortable for some, high school senior Makayla Miyashiro says the photographer at Expressions made her experience fun.
“My session was really casual and super easy,” Miyashiro said. “Jay, my photographer, he connected with me so I didn’t feel awkward just sitting there. He made me feel comfortable. The environment is super easy, super casual, laid back. It doesn’t make you feel how you would somewhere where you’re trying to model.”
Expressions is located at Pearlridge Center Downtown next to Sears.
