We worked hard for this one, as well as had a bit of luck on our side!! We met at sunrise, in the pouring rain, and had to just wait it out! We dashed into the sunflower fields between rain squalls, nearly up to our ankles in mud, and for a couple of 10 minutes window, the sun popped out, as well as a gorgeous rainbow! Congratulations, and mahalo to this gorgeous little family of 4! (ps thank you to the little keiki for being such troopers!!). You can grab a copy of Maui Family Magazine at most stores, schools, and resorts around the island.
November 2017: We dashed for the sunrise and oh was it ever worth it! Sunrise sessions = pastel skies to start, calm waters, empty beaches, and gorgeous light! p.s. ( This couple just had their little girl, congratulations!!! )

What started as an overcast afternoon turned into the most magical sunset of the year for this beautiful couple! It went from overcast, to pastels, to yellows and oranges, and on to pinks and purple!! That’s part of the fun of having outdoor sessions, we do our best planning, but really never know 100% what we’re going to get, as we’re at the mercy of mother nature!! Side note, I did not photoshop these colors….really!!! 🙂

Baby #1 due for this sweet couple, December 2017! Rain or shine, we decided that we were going for it, and we ended up with a magical setting on an empty beach in Wailea, (thank you rain! 😉 ).

Starting off 2018 with good intentions to keep up with the blog, as it seems to get neglected, (Work life + Momma / toddler life 😉 ====> blog neglect!! Thank you to all who graced me with the opportunity to capture you in 2017!
Ashley + Jason, babymoon session, Wainapanapa State Park, Hana Maui at sunrise. November 2017
This was one of my very favorites near the end of 2017, for many reasons. It was at sunrise in heavenly Hana, Maui, and it started with a pre-session, private engagement!!! Jason proposed to Ashley just before they arrived for their session, and they followed the session with a heli tour of Maui. I love adventurous couples!! Congratulations Ashley and Jason, so much love and so much excitement ahead of you!!
Here’s a peek of the beauty at black sand beach!
So fun shooting these cuties!! Mahalo to the staff at Maui Animal Farm for letting us use your beautiful property and animals!
Love love love this family!! Fun times at the gorgeous Four Seasons Lanai and Manele Bay! Mini mermaids underwater, music, and most importantly, a gorgeous family, inside and out!
