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 […]

Sunset Portraits on Maui

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 […]

A warm Maui sunset by the sea

Nina modeled another of our Kasia Kulenty gowns and the glow of sunset popped at the end of our session, the colors a perfect match for the golden tones of her dress.

Moody Sunset Water Portraits on Maui

We took Nina and one of our goddess gowns for a swim at sunset on Maui and couldn’t be happier with the results! The gowns flow effortlessly in the water, and our collaboration necklace with Washed Up On Maui looked spectacular on our muse!

Kaikini Bikinis x Love + Water

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, […]

Black sand beach maternity session

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 […]

Sunrise and Fire on Maui

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.

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 […]
