river & ohana | paia family photography

river siver and her family during their backyard family portrait session located in paia, hawaii.

morning shoots in paia rule for many reasons. pretty light, empty beaches, and local vibes. plus you can go to paia bay coffee afterwards, explore nearby waterfalls, watch the surfers at ho’okipa, or walk baldwin beach. support local and check out the boutiques in town — or grab organic food at mana. need more convincing? here are some favorites from a recent family session. river and her ohana were a joy to meet and photograph. we took a stroll to their favorite beach and hung out in their backyard. plus… siamese cats?!

the more families I connect with, the more I fall in love with humans and the mystery of it all. the deep connection we have with each other. so much is going down on the planet right now, but we have this. we have love.

what is your favorite part about homeschooling your family?:
My favorite part of homeschooling is the time I get with my kids. There is no time lost. We tried traditional public and private schooling and I missed the littles everyday. Now we get to spend each day together while enjoying what they learn and doing things they love to do. Our classroom is different everyday. We are almost always found outside exploring and adventuring utilizing everything we can towards learning. I get to enjoy them more, and get to know them on an entirely different level individually.

what is your favorite vegan meal to share together:

Our favorite meals are always changing but right now we’re really into Vegan Enchiladas by Cissylala. It includes a potato black bean filling that the kids won’t turn down. We have lots of taco nights. Mostly consisting of mushrooms, beans, a delicious tahini dressing, guacamole and fresh homemade salsa. Another staple in our family is Vegan Macaroni and Cheese.

what is a typical day like:
I don’t force the kids to wake up if they’d like to sleep in. I feel like they’re so young and need the sleep their bodies are asking for. We’re all normally up by 8 and make a smoothie or some banana nice cream for everyone. I do a quick 30 minute work out.  Then I set up all the kids schooling.  We do some work-book schooling, reading, writing and then we choose what we’d all like to do that day. Maybe a hike, a day at the beach, a bike ride or a stroll into town. When we come home I tend to lay out some paper on the table and have them write three questions they’d like answered from the place we visited. We all look up the answers and then do a small project on it. We almost always take a nightly stroll into town, the kids on the scooters and bikes saying hi to all the locals we pass. We come back home prepare dinner together and wait for dad to get off work. Finishing the night with reading our favorite books or a family movie if we feel like it.

where do you recommend vegetarian and vegan visitors eat while on Maui?:

My number one recommendation for vegan or vegetarian visitors on Maui would be Choice Health Bar in Lahaina. They have very friendly and helpful service and they always have fresh, local and healthy choices to pick from. I’d also recommend Maka by Mana in Paia I love their Kiawe Chili and Veg Out in Haiku.

maria | hana, maui | hawaii maternity photographer

maternity photography at waioka ponds, also known as venus ponds, in Hana Maui.

more often than not, I photograph people visiting Maui that are into Hana. they like to get out and do the damn thang. to get off the beaten path and put their barefeet on the earth. that’s why when Maria told me she booked half her trip in Wailea, half in Hana, we decided to celebrate her pregnancy out in east Maui. few places on the planet are more beautiful…
