"Pixurelab by Hawaiianpix" Mobile App

Did you know that there is a mobile app that makes it possible to instantly print off professionally quality photos from your phone? All you have to do is upload your photos from your phone onto the LifePics app and select Hawaiianpix Pixurelab as your location to print them off. We print in our lab and you pick them up. It is that easy!  To explain it in detail lets go through the process step-by-step (example shown on an Android phone) -

First of all, go to your app store on your iPhone, iPad, or Android enabled device and search for the "Lifepics App." Its a free app and easy to download and install.

Step 1: Find the app and download and install - 

Step 2: Open the app on your phone -

Step 3: Go to "My Account" -

Step 4: Create an account. Or if you already have one just log-in.

Step 5: If you live in Hawaii, you will need to find the Hawaiinapix Pixurelab. To select us as your store, you can use your current location (GPS enabled) or you can enter your Hawaiian postal code. If you don't live in Hawaii, no worries! You still have the opportunity to get your photos printed at a professional lab. You simply need to find other professional printing labs in your area by using your current location or postal code.

Step 6: Once you have entered in your location, you will be directed to another screen. When you are on this screen you will need to choose Pixurelab as your fulfillment lab. 

Step 7: Once you have chosen your lab, the next step is uploading the photos you want to have printed from your mobile device.  You will need to go back to your homepage and select "Albums."

Step 8: Your phone's camera roll (or gallery) will be the first album listed. If you already have a Pixurelab account, then your past Pixurelab photo albums will show up below your camera's roll. If this is your first time using Pixurelab, then the only album listed will be your camera roll.

Step 9: Select the album and the images that you want to print. For easy ordering, make sure they are all the same size. 

Step 10: Upload your selected image(s).

Step 11:
Choose the quantity and size of the image you want to print. It is important to remember that there is a 3 MEGAPIXELS minimum for 8x10 prints.

Step 12: Once you have completed the quantity, add them to your shopping cart. The minimum cart order is $2.00, so make sure you order enough for all your friends! 

Step 13: The final step! Complete your contact information and submit the order. When your order is completed, you will get a notification through your email saying your order is completed and ready for pick-up! Note: the app doesn't have a way to include shipping cost, so orders are available for pick-up only. 

That is all! Only 13 easy steps to get your mobile photos printed at a professional print lab. With the Lifepics app you can store your images online for up to six months for free, share your photos directly with your facebook account, and email your images to family and friends. You can also download images from your facebook account (full resolution is best) to your Pixurelab account for storage and printing anywhere.

Do you live far away from your friends and family? You can stay connected with Pixurelab by downloading your pictures to the app and choosing to have your pictures printed off at a location close to your family and friends. Once they are ready for pick-up, your family member or friend can go their neighborhood location to get the prints you sent them!

Mahalo to Our Military!

This Veteran's Day, the Hawaiianpix crew wants to say a big MAHALO to our military!

We appreciate everything that our military and their families sacrifice for us everyday. Living in Hawaii, we are surrounded by all military branches - Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, and Coast Guard. Many of our valued clients have a military connection.

Amanda and Jason - 

 Did you know that the majority of the Hawaiianpix crew is made up of military spouses? We are one big military family representing a wide variety of branches.

Jerry and his wife, Connie, are the owners of Hawaiianpix. Connie is retired Air Force. We got her to dig up some photos of her early Air Force days. Love her glasses in the second picture!

Connie at McGhee - Tyson AFB, TN 1988

Lyndsi is the Hawaiianpix lab technician. Her husband is in the Marines. They got married two years ago in Massachusetts. Here is a photo from their wedding day - 

Lastly, we have Wes, an associate photographer at Hawaiiwanpix. His wife is a senior airman in the Air Force. This year they went to Maui and tried zip-lining. Here they are before they headed down the zip-line -

Hawaiianpix will be closed on November 11, 2011 for Veteran's Day and we will be unable to take reservation and answer phone calls.  However, we will resume our normal business hours on Saturday.  Mahalo!

"Mahalo-ween" Party

Halloween has come and gone, and we are all still recovering from our sugar induced comas. Before you block Halloween out of your mind until next year, we thought we would share what the Hawaiianpix crew was up to the day before Halloween.

This year we were asked to participate in the Hawaiian Prince "Mahalo-ween" Party to celebrate all the hotel's employees and their family.  The "thank you" party was an exciting movie themed Halloween party. Of course, Halloween costumes were highly encouraged...and this included the Hawaiianpix crew!

Here you see the Hawaiianpix crew all dressed up. The goul and "Hit Girl" are attacking the cowgirl because she had a lame last-minute costume. Mr. Incredible is...well...he is just showing off his muscles.

  Mr. Incredible (aka Jerry), Hit Girl (aka Connie), a scary goul (aka Lyndsi), and lame "cowgirl" (aka Micole)

Are you wondering how the Chipmunks got in the photo? Well they were part of the amazing movie themed props at party. Before the employees and their families walked the red carpet, they would first stop and get a photo with the Chipmunks. A short while after getting their pictures taken, Hawaiianpix printed off their photos with a spooky over-lay and the photos were ready for pick-up from their costumed owners.

We love how creative the employees and their families got with their costumes! Here is just a small sampling of some of the great costumes we saw that day.

A big MAHALO to the Hawaiian Prince Hotel for letting us participate in their first annual "Mahalo-ween" Party. If you would like to schedule Hawaiianpix for your next event call us at 808-387-0869 or email us at office@hawaiianpix.com. You can also check out our event rates on our website.

To Wear or Not to Wear? That is the Question!

Okay, so you have your appointment scheduled. The time and location are all set. Now comes the hard part....what should we wear?

One of the most important things we tell clients is to wear something comfortable. When you are comfortable in the clothes you are wearing, your pictures reflect it. We always suggest something in natural fabrics, cottons and light weight work best for portraits.

Janet and Matthew - 

Don't forget about the location. If you are getting your photos taken at the beach remember to dress accordingly. You will be walking in sand, so high heels are not ideal. Flip-flops work great for the sand, however, most clients prefer just to go barefoot.

B Family at Kawailoa Beach - 

If your location is at the studio or in a park, then shoes are definitely recommended. The type of shoe you wear is really up to you. We just suggest that you keep it consistent with everybody in the family.  Don't mix formal shoes and flip-flops. If one person wants to wear formal shoes, then you should match the whole family.

H Family at Ala Moana Beach Park -

Lastly, it is important to remember that you don't want your clothes to compete with you as the main subject. We usually suggest staying away from busy prints and sticking with solid colors.  Solid colors work best with the Hawaiian scenery in any location and present a clean bold front to your portrait.

G Family at Kawailoa Beach - 

H Family at Ala Moana Beach Park - 

The key is to tie everyone together. Everyone should be in a common thread color. A neutral color or black/white combination look great in photographs. White and khaki or white and black seem to be a very popular color combination for our clients.

Levi and Harmony at Ala Moana Beach Park - 

Thy and Than at Kawailoa Beach -

C Family at Kawailoa Beach -

G Family at Kawailoa Beach - 

If you use a colors (blue, red, pink, teal, etc), make sure that there are accents of the same hue in multiple people in the group shot. This will help to create a cohesive appearance for your group or even as a couple.

T Family at Kawailoa Beach -

K Family at Kawailoa Beach - 

L Family at Ala Moana Beach Park - 

Jacquelean and John at Kawailoa Beach - 

S Family at Hickam Air Force Base  - 

S Family at Ko'Olina Marriott Beach Club - 

M Family at Aulani Resort - 

 Rachel and David at Kawailoa Beach - 

Just remember to keep it simple. You will make the photographs beautiful; your clothes need to be secondary. If you have any more questions about what to wear, check out the "clothing" portion of our   portrait agreement.

If you have the clothes, but haven't booked a session yet. Call Andy at 808-387-0869 or email her at office@hawaiianpix.com.
