A the weeks wind down before we move back home from Maui to the Sunshine Coast of Australia, we find ourselves noticing little differences between days spent here in Hawaii. When a big swell comes through you’ll often find beachgoers with mesh bags collecting shells on the shoreline, but on this particular morning we had […]

Big swell, big shells. A sunrise Maui portrait session

It used to be that I thought we had to have pastel everything. Because our editing style is largely soft with pink and blue tones, I imagined the best colour to complement this look would be a bit of the same.

A splash of colour – sunrise maternity portraits

I pulled the photograph closer to my eyes to analyze the setting. Towering loblolly pines, a timber deck stained deep mahogany, my mum dressed in a form-fitting cotton dress cradling her tummy outside my childhood home in Georgia. Inhale, exhale – I can almost smell the fresh air. I smile and glance down at the […]

We recently posted a question on Instagram asking what you wanted to know about our post-processing, and we got such a huge response I thought it would be easiest to keep all the answers in one place before they poof out in our stories and are lost on a highlights reel! Accompanying this post are […]

I thank our landlords every night under my breath. They trimmed the trees lining our home when we moved in, giving way to a sweeping view of the West Maui Mountains – it’s out of this world. And when the setting sun lights up the sky at the tail end of the day, I find […]

Brittany + Tim celebrated their anniversary on Maui and took part in a couples portrait session at the beach with us on Earth Day. We can’t think of a more beautiful start to the day than a moon setting ahead of a gorgeous pastel sunrise, and the couple cooled off after their session with a […]

It’s earth day, hurray! I feel as if every year Mother Earth heaves a sigh of relief on this day. “Ah,” she says, “they finally listened.” But then she scrolls Instagram 24 hours later and reads it’s now National Donut Day. “Hey, what the f*&%?” Does anyone remember that episode of Mad Men – Don […]
