About the Book
'Portraits of Aloha Hope' challenges us all to reexamine our conceptions of true beauty. It showcases portraits of 23 women who live in the Women In Need (WIN) transitional, clean and sober houses that serve as haven for those moving from incarceration and homeless life to a new life. Accompanying the photographs are hope-filled and encouraging quotes from renowned authors such as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, as well as from the women of WIN.
This self-funded photo project benefits the organization Women In Need (WIN). All proceeds of your book purchase, will go toward supporting this incredibly worthy organization. Thank you.

With her little point-and-shoot camera, she won Travel and Leisure’s 35th Anniversary June Photo Contest for a shot she took while hiking the Viedma Glacier in Patagonia in 2006. She then upgraded her camera to a professional digital SLR and dived seriously into photography, completing workshops with renowned photographers like Julia Dean and Frank W. Ockenfels.
