There’s something about a wide angle shot that captures the surrounding environment that gives us a lot of joy. And I know what that something is – the way sunset colors collide to form the most perfect tones. They wrap elegantly around our subjects and work with the sunlight to provide us with the most […]

Sunset for a Maui family photography session

Land + Sea Sessions

We photographed return clients Andrea and her family at a beautiful beach just before sunset! It’s always great to see how kids have grown between their sessions, it goes so fast. Their session was short and sweet, and we gathered some beautiful images that capture their connection under gorgeous Maui skies.

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.

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!

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 […]

Thoughts on growing up and slowing down


I looked at our daughter holding out a book for me to read to her before bed. She requested A Day at the Seashore, and thumbed through the pages pointing out her favorite things. “Ha-tt” – she said, pointing to the little girl’s sun hat. “Woof woof”, pointing to the dog on her favorite page. […]

A Maui babymoon portrait with Ashley of Everyday Pursuits


It’s true, Ashley’s Maui babymoon portrait session with us was one of our last before we entered lockdown due to COVID-19. I edited this session with tears in my eyes, because closing this shoot means remembering so much. It makes me remember what I miss, what I took for granted. I miss carrying our 38 […]

Sunset family portrait and beautiful Maui memories

Land + Sea Sessions

I must say, the last few weeks have played host to a series of emotions that I know are not unique to our family. Sadness, grief, anxiety. But as I flick through images and process edits and deliver galleries from sessions we photographed before the COVID-19 pandemic grabbed hold and the world took a panicked […]

It’s a privilege to capture families year after year on Maui, and Brooke’s family is […]

Land + Sea Sessions

Today I’m sharing two things we’ve noticed since the emergence of our global crisis and the emphasis of social distancing. Social Neighboring Our audience on social media is more active than ever. We respond to dozens of messages per day as opposed to a trickle of a few (much appreciated) DMs. In a climate where […]
