maui sunflower field | maternity photography | hawaii

Lindsay and Mark spent a month in Hawaii, relaxing and exploring – awaiting their first child.

a couple days before their maternity session, this massive field of sunflowers sprouted up out of nowhere! for the last 130 years, sugarcane had grown in its place – and this was a new effort by pacific biosisel for biofuel. I called Lindsay and asked if we could stop at the field before we went to the beach in kihei. and I’m so glad we did! the blanket of yellow inspired me to film a bit, and I hope bebegirl enjoys watching these sweet moments between her parents when she’s older.

these two have been together 12 years — traveling, windsurfing, producing festivals, and Mark is even in a band called Wookiefoot. why are the people I photograph so damn cool. to be connected through this art is something I treasure. excited to hang with their family of 3 next maui trip. here are a few favorites from our session.




big island lava flow | baby earth | hawaii

I had a magical time photographing hawaii hoop retreats at Kalani for the 5th year in a row. the big island always amazes me…

we woke up at before the sun, and took a boat out to see the lava flow at the kamokuna ocean entry. enjoy a short clip.

music: insightful – secure

to all the beauty that is, Earth.


hailey & sean | couples photography session | maui, hawaii

hailey was my first friend at university in the redwoods of northern california. I adored this born and raised maui girl, and a year later I found myself on a plane to visit her for a month — exploring the island… barefoot and free 18 year olds. I thank hailey for introducing me to this special place I call home.

we spent the afternoon in kula, hawaii —  hailey and sean’s home, where the air is crisp and the view of the island is expansive and beautiful. feeding the goats, playing with zed & penny (rescue pups). cuddles. and a sunset motorcycle ride around the hood. not pictured, their new kitten: kimchi peaches. upcountry livin’ is glorious.
