Hi there! I'm Tina, the girl behind the camera here at Tina Benfante Photgraphy an Oahu based Family and Couples Photographer.



I've never in my life wrote a blog so I figured the best way to jump into this is to write about me. So yeah here it goes.... 

  I’m a wife, mama to 3 crazy kiddos and a boxer puppy. I feel so lucky to get to do what I love. 

I'm originally from Long Island, NY and thanks to my husbands job in the Navy we have gotten to explore a few places.  I have loved everywhere we have lived but Hawaii is by far my favorite place. 

  I'm a flip flop, punk rock, beach loving type of girl. I will wear flip flops even in the snow. I hate wearing layers unless it's a hoodie. 

If I could spend all day everyday at the beach I would. With a toddler who has the same feeling for the beach as his daddy we don't quite make it to the beach as much or as long as I would like these days. 

  • 60 my camera

  • Lens brush
  • Baby wipes
  • Bobby pins
  • Fruit snack (make a great clean bribe)
  • Lollypops after session treat for the kids
  • Reading about Photography
  • Peanut butter
  • Beaches
  • Wild flowers
  • Freckles
  • The feeling of cleaning things that are super dirty.
  • Playing board games
  • Watching my kids put on fashion and talent shows 

I love shooting Families, and couples but my all time favorite is little kids. You never know what they will do and they aren't afraid to show their true self plus it's an excuse for me to act like a kid to help get that perfect shot.
