When we return from your session, images are culled and left behind are the strongest contenders for your finished gallery. You might think you want as many images as possible from your session, but believe us, when it comes to photography it's quality, not quantity - we have an eye for what works best, and the images you receive are going to each be worthy of a spot on your wall!
We spend the majority of our time post-processing, editing each image to suit the tones and style you see on our website.
If you've ever witnessed the delicate beauty of a Maui sunrise, you'd know the pastel tones illuminating the sky are very, very real. When processing your images we do our best to maintain the reality of your morning or sunset session and opt to enhance the natural beauty of your surroundings rather than fabricate it.
The skies you see are real - Maui really is that beautiful and we do our best to pay testament to the island's vibrant colors when editing the imagery from your beach portrait session.
