A Stylist and Photographer’s Guide There are two questions I almost always get asked by clients… Choosing what to wear for your Maui family portrait can be super overwhelming! You want your kids and yourself to feel comfortable and like yourself, but more put together. You want the clothing not to be fussy and stand […]
This sweet honeymoon portrait was shot at Makena’s secret cove as an inspiration to brides on honeymoon or for their elopement looking to create a bright, colorful, and tropical look: something reminiscent of 60s Hawaiian photos and postcards sent home from paradise to loved ones.
Here is a curation of sensory pleasures that make sophisticated and luxurious gifts for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, proposal, birthday or if you simply want to say “you are my one and only!” From a twist on the classic breakfast in bed, to a curated, themed perfume set, these gifts are sensual, novel, and intriguing.

No accessories, no props, no lingerie or clothes. Only crisp, white sheets carefully draped, the choice of her special scent—here classic Chanel No.5—and an artful flower design by Dandelion Ranch reflecting the rose and jasmine notes of the perfume, convey the special meaning and bond of a lady to her favorite and chosen scent.
