Iao Valley is one of my favorite places on Maui. why? because it’s a pure magic. this is a sacred and beautiful place that everyone should experience while visiting Hawaii. you can check it out on my list of things to do on maui with your family.
for some, these waters are close to the heart. they’ve been bathing in them since they were babes.
introducing, meili autumn — a bridal hair and make up artist on maui, who was born and raised on island, and lives only a few miles from the stream. we’ve worked together many times, either when I’m shooting weddings, or most recently when I shot the new ergobaby campaign. it was so special to get to actually photography meili for once! her and kezia came to iao valley for a dip in the stream.
I’m constantly reminded why I love what I do… these are precious and fleeting moments that deserve to be printed in beautiful albums and up on the walls. I know kezia will cherish these when she’s older as well… photos of her and her momma are worth more than any material things. simple love and connection is everything in this wild world.
enjoy some of my favorite moments.
“There are not even stars to rate this phenomenal photographer- a true talented gem of a human and artist. Cadence is a magician when it comes to capturing light, a certain glance, a sparkling moment- she is a wizard with freezing time at the most opportune moment and you will be forever grateful that moment is captured- bc it is so so beautiful through her lens. I’m a little shy in front of a camera and Cadence made me feel confident and comfortable. Also my 4yo is notoriously not camera friendly and I was in awe of Cadence’s ability to get her in front of the camera with such ease. It was a fun experience and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. She is the BEST.” – MeiLi Autumn
