Young love on the north shore of Maui

North shore photography fun!

Young and in LOVE + Hookipa Beach Park + bamboo + a waterfall = one FUN Maui portrait photography session!

I love when I get to work in my back yard on the north shore of Maui!

Tom and Diane came here from B.C. Canada and wanted a mix of portraits in a few locations. Luckily, all of these spots are so close to each other, we were able to visit them all. And of course, we had so much fun, we lost track of time. Oh well. When you’re having fun… 🙂

Thank you Diane (aka Kim – yes… I kept wanting to call her Kim the whole time). Thank you Diane for letting me capture these beautiful moments with you and your husband.

Aloha, Kristin

Three generations… Maui family portrait photography

Maui family portrait photography… three generations, a golden anniversary and a birthday!

Lately, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing several Maui family portraits for three generation families.

Such a blessing!!!! To see these beautiful couples still in love after 50 years… their children… and grand kids.

Here is the Royal Family. They are good friends of good friends of mine. I think the grand kids weren’t looking forward to having their pictures taken. But in the end, we all had a blast and laughed a lot.

Thank you for including me in your celebrating of 50 years married and Val’s birthday…

Much love and aloha, Kristin

Silversword blooms – only on top of Maui!

Only out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean on a small island called Maui, at the top of a volcano called Haleakala will you see these beautiful Silversword plants. And every so often the Silversword blooms. After 15 years living on Maui, I’ve never seen them bloom until now. So beautiful!

My kids and I went up to see the Silversword blooms, hike, pick flowers and play with cameras…

The ranger taught us that there are 28 species of Silversword plants and they all live in Hawaii. And this species only lives on top of Haleakala.

There is truly no place like Haleakala National Park… So blessed!

Six degrees of separation… making friends in photography!

Six degrees of separation… that’s how we are all connected.

I get to experience this as a photographer and it’s great!

I am lucky to have continued friendships with people who started off as photography clients. They come out every year for their vacations and their family portaits.  Then… I am lucky that these friends then recommend me to their other friends to take their pictures, and so it continues.

This family portrait session was for a friend of a good friend I went to college with. What fun we had! This family was here to celebrate their parents 50 year anniversary. What an honor for me! And what amazingly nice and loving people to photograph. And fun!

Anyways, I had a great time. Thank you again for including me in your celebration. 🙂

Disco disco disco!

Disco disco disco!

Hey, did I mention that there was a disco?

I had so much fun photographing a friend’s (and fella photographer’s) disco party last weekend. There is so much fun to be had as the photographer at fun parties. I get to have fun, do what I love, and then laugh as I look at the images when I get home. Love love love photographing disco disco disco parties!

Here’s a few of the images from that night. Contact me if you are having a party and want to capture fabulous and fun memories that you get to keep forever.

Vacation Photography in France

 

In September, I took a trip to France with my aunt, to see my other aunt and uncle who live there. So of course, being a photographer, I took a LOT of pictures. Once I got home to Maui, time flew by and bam it is already 2014 and I’m just now posting some images. There are a lot of photos in this album, but believe me, there are way more!

We were in a town north-west of Bordeaux, on the coast. And then on the coast again down south at the Spanish border. French Basque country!

Enjoy, Kristin

Maui beach family photography session of three generations

Happy new year! I ended the year by taking some Maui family portraits for a good friend of mine. Her sister and parents and all the kids were here.

Super nice family and a lot of fun on a nice Maui evening. 🙂
