Maui Family Beach Portraits – The Zhang Family by Maui Photographer Karma Hill

The Zhang family traveled all the way from Australia to vacation in Maui for the Christmas holiday. Their two littles did so great despite the long journey and the smiles were plentiful! The family brought brightly colored balloons with them and that really made their little girl happy, she would giggle and smile every time they got near her. It also made for some super cute and unique photos! It was a bright and sunny morning and all of us had fun playing on the beach and splashing in the water. Mahalo Zhang family for allowing me to document your beautiful family, I hope you had a super fun vacation and that your trip back was easy!!

Winter Time in Maui! The Ranganathan Family Portraits by Maui Photographer Karma Hill

Maui is known for it’s year round near perfect weather, but in the winter time, we do get a bit more rain then in the summer. The Ranganathan’s were such great sports when on the day of their portrait session, Maui decided the plants needed some water! Although it was sprinkling and cloudy most of the session, the sun did pop out for a few moments giving us some very interesting light.

Capturing the Love of Natalie & Jansen – by Karma Hill Photography

Natalie & Jansen met a few years ago at a church function on Halloween. Jansen spotted Natalie from afar and knew it was love at first sight. For Natalie it took a little convincing but after a few months of dating she realized the strength of the love she had for him. Jansen proposed to Natalie at sunrise at Haleakala and the rest is history. Jansen & Natalie were married at the Bailey House Museum in Wailuku town and then had their reception at The Maui Tropical Plantation. They were dressed to impress and Natalie rolled up in an immaculate Rolls Royce. After the heartfelt ceremony where many tears were shed Natalie & Jansen were pronounced husband & wife! Staff photographer Ajja and the rest of the crew traveled to the Tropical Plantation where we took pictures of the fun and lively bridal party. We love all the little details that they incorporated with touches of teal. Our favorite though has got to be the superhero shirts that Jansen got for all of his groomsmen. Such a fun phot
