Hotel Wailea Wedding, Leah and Drew

Leah and I became friends after we had photographed her pin-up photos for a surprise gift for her hubby to be. I was so honored and excited she asked me to photograph her beautiful wedding. Leah and Drew were so calm and relaxed on their wedding day, so, when it was time for pictures, they had no problem getting into the mood with.
Leah and Drew, you are an amazing couple and thank you for inviting me to be a part of your day!

Impromptu Photo Shoot: Chloe

20 Minutes of Golden Light

On this day, I remember feeling particularly inspired. I had the sudden urge to take a beautiful portrait and I only had 20 minutes left of sunshine. Chloe was available on a moments notice and everything fell into place flawlessly. Her living room had a large window with golden light shining in — it was the perfect setting. It was Chloe’s idea to bring her pet bird into the pictures with her. This was the second time I had photographed Chloe and I was pleasantly surprised by her natural ability in front of the camera. The fact that we were in her living room may have contributed to her comfort level.

Where does inspiration come from?

For me, inspiration comes in a few different forms — like a feeling from within. Sometimes I see beautiful light or a beautiful setting. From there, I draw inspiration from the people near me, and look to capture something candid and personal about them.

When inspired, sometimes all it takes is 20 minutes to create something beautiful.

Poipu Beach Engagement, Anna and Chonway

Bic, contacted me prior, to book a surprise beach engagement session for her brother Chonway. While here on vacation, Chonway had decided to propose to his girlfriend Anna. Anna was completely surprised! Chonway and Anna had been engaged just for a day or two when we met at this secret beach, on the south side of Maui, for a mini engagement session. Congratulations, Chonway and Anna! I am so happy for you both!

Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm, The Bijl Family Portraits

I had the pleasure of photographing Maggie and her cute little family at AKL Maui. It was a little wet that day but I love it when it rains! Thank you, Bijl family, for having me tag along on your family day! By the way, Maggie is the owner of the coolest, consignment boutique on the island, Bohemia Boutique! Check out her store for some amazing vintage and brand name clothes!

Kihei Cove, Colleen and Trevor, We’re expecting!

I had the privilege of photographing Colleen and Trevor’s pregnancy photos! They are such a cute couple and have so much love for each other and the little one on the way. Thank you both, so much, for letting me document this very special time for the both of you! I really love these family beach photos! Colleen, you look incredible and I think you may be having a boy. I could be wrong, though!!

Lahaina, Shelly and Eddie

Shelly just lit up in-front of the camera, posed and moved with grace. At one point, I teased Eddie because he was making funny faces. He felt if he takes himself to seriously, he doesn’t have fun. I think that is a great approach while getting your picture taken. With Eddie’s lighthearted approach and Shelly’s natural presence, I was able to capture a real, fun and spontaneous moment.
