The rich sunset tones of a Maui black sand beach portrait wrap perfectly around this expecting mother in one of our favorite recent sessions.
When quarantine began on Maui, both Adam and I were seeking ways to fill our cup creatively and knew this would involve underwater portraiture in some way. When working in the water, it’s important to have a subject who is not only confident and comfortable with the ocean, but can pose with elegance and grace. […]
In March, the cancellations began. We clung to the hope of a swift reopening but our cup-half-full mentality quickly spilled over, transporting our family, as small business owners on an island dependent on tourism, into an area of uncertainty we were entirely unprepared for. My guess is, if you’re a small business owner, you’ve felt […]
Maui is a small island at times, and your neighbor down the street just might turn out to be your portrait client! We met this family through a mutual friend and it was a pleasure to photograph their family at the beach in Wailea. The sunset was beautiful, we had the beach to ourselves and […]
The school year might look a little different, but the tradition of taking senior portraits is one that holds strong! We met up with Elizabeth and shared a gorgeous sunrise by the ocean for her senior portrait session on Maui, here are a couple of highlights!
We’ve had the unique opportunity to connect more with our kama’aina portrait clients, and are grateful to have met this lovely family who we photographed at sunrise at one of our favorite Wailea beaches. A family session on Maui wouldn’t be complete without the dog in tow, of course! Here’s a sneak peek of our […]
We photographed this session for return clients at the beach at sunset, the first time was when Laura was pregnant with the little one you see running around in the photographs! It means a lot when clients return to us to capture their growing families, whether this be from couples to newlyweds, maternity clients to […]
Quality is paramount. And Kaikini Bikinis have been my go-to for almost 7 years. They just LAST. I’m still wearing the same pair I wore while pregnant with our first son 5 years ago! For that reason, we knew that if we were to put our images on swimwear they would need to be Kaikinis, […]
In the past we’ve hesitated posting images with rich tones such as underwater portraits and after-sunset pics because I thought they made our feed look odd scattered amongst soft pastel tones. I’m learning to let go of the design aspect and realize we should be posting what we love, even if this includes a few […]
When I was editing Adam’s session with Alohi, I could feel the stillness of the morning and hear how the water would have sounded, the receding of the waves. Sunrise is an incredibly calming and grounding time of day, and on Maui there’s an especially spectacular energy that comes with the beginning of a new day. Couple […]
When I was editing Hannah’s sunrise maternity session, my fingers seized up. It was so bizarre and probably abnormal, but I realized they were used to editing at lightning speed, almost on autopilot, using the shortcuts and actions we’ve developed in Photoshop over the years. Let me tell you, I’m RUSTY. What used to take […]
We're so happy we went with Love + Water and will definitely have them take photos of our family again!
The dreamiest photos you've ever seen. Right from the first e-mail, we felt completely heard and seen.
