Kristin called me one afternoon to ask if I could help with a very special photo shoot. She wanted to gift a family photo session on Maui to the woman who she considered to be her adopted mom, Sue. Sue was very active throughout her life and used to walk up to 40 miles a day (that’s not a typo) with her friends in Oregon. Kristin shared with me that Sue was on her journey with brain cancer and had asked to come to Maui to enjoy time with her family. Kristin wanted to have a photo session while they were all together in one of Sue’s favorite places. I felt an instant connection to Kristin and her story. I lost my father to cancer before we had time for a professional photo shoot. Of course we were happy to help. We had so much fun with Sue’s family. Our makeup artist, Monica Valencia, gave Sue a mini makeover so she could enjoy a little pampering before her session (you can see her husband, Lee, giving her a tender kiss on her head while Monica was getting her glammed up.)  We did the session right on property at the condo so Sue didn’t have to walk too far and we had a fantastic backdrop for her family photo. Her husband, Lee, surprised Sue on Maui by getting a tattoo on his arm when they arrived on the island.
This morning we lost this beautiful soul and heaven has certainly gained another angel. Mahalo to Kristin for the heartfelt gift of a photo session and to Sue for allowing us to celebrate you and your wonderful family together.

Check out this cutie! Ace just rocked his In-Studio Maui Family Portraits with his parents, Mya and Brandon, and is certainly destined for greatness. He and his parents both have the most playful personalities and it totally showed in their Mother’s Day/Family Portrait session in or studio. We spent some time photographing Ace by himself and them brought in Mom and Dad to complete their Maui Family Portraits. We chose the black on black backdrop to minimize distractions and away we went with the shoot! Ace wore the cutest little newsboy outfit from Rainey’s Closet complete with bow tie and newsboy cap too. Congratulations Mya and Brandon! We can’t wait to watch Ace grow up.

Closing Makahiki Ceremony Launching Kaililaau at Kaanapali Beach Hotel

Closing Makahiki Ceremony Launching Kaililaau at Kaanapali Beach Hotel

This year, Kaanapali Beach Hotel hosted a very special closing ceremony for the Makahiki Season. They repaired a re-launched their traditional Hawaiian Sailing Canoe (built by the hotel employees) named Kailila’au after a young Maui boy. So the canoe is a “He” vs a “She”. He is very special to the hotel employees. During the carving of the canoe, each of the hotel employees took part in the build out. They carved, sanded, varnished or lashed together parts. They were excited to get him back out on the water in top sailing form. Hawaiian protocol was essential for the ceremony and the launch. The ceremony was powerful. I was hired to photograph the dedication and the launch for the hotel and press releases. It was truly an honor.
