I loved taking Maui family portraits for the Ncube family! They were staying in a condo on Sugar Beach in South Maui and they wanted to have their portraits taken on the beach there. This is not a beach I work on regularly, but I might have to start! I just loved all the canoes on the beach with the sun streaming in from behind through the palm trees. This adorable family traveled from Canada to Maui for some sun and fun during the cold winter months back home. They were headed back to way below freezing temperatures so they were soaking it in as much as they could! Their little guy LOVED the ocean and digging in the sand, I had a great time capturing him just playing and being his cute self.
10 years ago Koert and Renee were married at the Olowalu Plantation House. Fast forward to now, two kids and a couple of cross country moves later, they are still happily in love and back on Maui to celebrate their big anniversary! The folks at the Olowalu Plantation house were kind enough to allow them have their 10 year anniversary family portraits where it all began! It was so fun getting to know this adorable family and to hear stories of their wedding day. Stressful moments on a wedding day turn into funny stories to be told later, no wedding is complete without a few moments of drama to make a good story! Of course the entire day was amazing and it was great to see them reliving it a bit together ten years later. Mahalo Koert and Renee for choosing me to be a part of your anniversary celebration, I hope to see you back in Maui in the future!!Time of Day: MorningPhotographer: KarmaLocation: Olowalu Plantation HouseCheck out our last Maui family portrait with the Voelker Family!
I have been photographing the adorable Voelker family since their twins were infants! It is hard to believe it has already been 4 years!! This year they wanted something different than the beach so we went to the picturesque Iao Valley in central Maui. It was a beautiful day and I had fun playing and exploring with the twins. The bamboo path is such a cool spot, I love the way the photos look like we went deep into the jungle, when really it is just steps from the rest of the park! Mahalo Voelker family, I am so honored to photograph your awesome family over and over again!!~Karma~Location: Heritage GardensTime of day: AfternoonPhotographer: KarmaCheck out our last Maui family portrait with the Voelker’s!
Shelby & Allen were married last weekend at Hale Ko Olani, a gorgeous estate resting on the slopes of the West Maui mountains. This amazing couple are totally perfect for each other! They are the sweetest, most genuine couple you’d ever meet. And did I mention HILARIOUS? There is never a dull moment with these two and we were so happy that they chose us to be there to capture it. The laughing, the smiling, and even the tears staff photographer Ajja and her second shooter Sasha were there for each and every moment. Shelby & Allen decorated the venue with gorgeous peach floral and an amazing LOVE sign overlooking the ocean. I need that sign…. in my front yard! So adorable! After the ceremony we took Shelby & Allen for some group and bridal party photos on the spectacular grounds of the estate. After the sun went down Hale Ko Olani was lit up by colorful lights. It was a perfect venue for a perfect couple! Thank you so much Shelby & Allen for choosing

I had a blast with the DeVries family! Their youngest son was so spirited and energetic, he reminded me a lot of my youngest son who is the same age. Their older son was so sweet and patient with his younger brother, what an amazing thing to have such a great brother bond! We met for a morning portrait session on a bright and sunny day at Southside beach. We did all kinds of running, jumping and playing in the sand.
