just the typical family photo 😹... smoke grenades, pink velvet couch and ms.pony- the best dog sweater wearer! i mean c’mon! who wouldn’t want to have this much fun during a shoot?!?
celebrated another year on this beautiful earth yesterday! one of the many reasons i moved to oahu was for the ridge hikes this island has in store for adventures. soooo i definitely had to check one out on my birthday! looking back over the past year- it offered me more growth than any years past. pushing my limits, allowing myself to grow and trust! not allowing fear to hold me back. i i traveled to a few countries that i had been dreaming about for years- meet and experienced magic on the the daily. my business grew more than i could have ever imagined. strengthen relationships and let go when needed. and i just moved to oahu! as i look forward to 32 my work is on being open. allowing my heart and mind to be open to all the newness and magic that can happen everyday if kept in mind. thanks for all the love yesterday and everyday! 📷 by the raddest @wind_dancer

first sunset 🌴 sunset beach
if you caught my story earlier. she said YES! congrats c + f 💍 proposals are sooooo incredible! what a magical way to spend my last sunset on maui ✨
maui. thank you for being so damn beautiful and making all my dreams come true. jumping on a plane in less than 24 for this move to oahu. gonna miss this community to pieces- bittersweet. but come dance tonite at g. love for my last nite on island.
the present is the gift. spent christmas morning with a family of 12 on the beach capturing their happiness together here on maui. i haven’t spend this holiday with my family in years....and every year it gets a little easier. i’ve found an abundance of gratitude in spending it with friends and families that make me feel so loved. capturing connection and truly appreciating the similarities we share especially during this busy time of the year. so much love and happy holidays! and a very happy birthday to this bright shinning star @erin_jo
impermanence is real. find your happiness in the moment
the beauty of life unfolds in spontaneity. shaylan was one of the first friends i met here on island over five years ago. i was lucky to meet his beautiful queen, charlie when she came from bali to visit. they have been traveling for the past few years and just arriving back on island to settle with their two cute lil blondies. my heart was overflowing with happiness capturing the authenticity of their love for each other. the intimacy of their wedding on the beach last night was filled with laughter, beautiful flowers and playing in the waves. i will never forget this sunset with you all, thank you for the last minute request to capture your story.
lately... i haven’t looked at what price i get paid for a shoot. this is what i do for a living but also for the sake of letting connection happen and art be an expression of my being. i am grateful for all the people that see my work and give me their time and energy in front of my lens. there isn’t anything that makes me happier than this. two weeks left on maui and the collabs and ideas for upcoming sessions has me on cloud nine
as my chapter comes to an end here on this island, I’m here to soak in every last moment. especially ones like this. if we had an idea for a shoot or an adventure we’d been talking about. hit me up so we can make it happen 💛
anyone else finding beauty in the messiness of life
always getting lost to be found
