Sapphire was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawai'i. She fell in love with photography during her senior year in high school after taking her first photography class. Shooting film, and being in the dark room constantly, she knew she wanted to pursue photography as her career. Sapphire decided to attend the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA for her BFA in Commercial Photography. She now specializes in Fashion/Editorial photography, Retouching, and Photo manipulation. Find her at Dolores Park or taking her dog Sailor to the beach.
