Maui Family Photography on a Non-Hurricane Weekend

I’m excited to share some Maui family photography on a non-hurricane weekend with you this morning!  They were photographed on the weekend of the would-be hurricanes.  There was a flurry of activity as preparers emptied grocery store shelves of water and other disaster-ready necessities.  I had a portrait session scheduled, and we decided to just wait and see what would happen.

Hurricane Iselle was, for the most part, a nonevent on Maui.  But there were some clouds rolling through, and they ended up providing the perfect backdrop for our beach session.  It was so beautiful, in fact, that I overshot the session.  By a lot.  Double what I typically do.

The Cehs were visiting from Arizona.  Simona had a couple of health scares in the last few years, and it was the perfect excuse for some family portraits.  To celebrate life.  And this stage.  And to finally get some family photos that they never had taken professionally before.

I was so happy to create the portraits for them.  Here’s a peek at our evening together.  Happy Monday!

Jake + Sarah: A Central Oregon Wedding

It was a beautiful summer day.  Jake and Sarah were about to tie the knot in a Central Oregon wedding in the mountains along the Metolious River at the gorgeous House on Metolious.  Surrounded by the very same pines engraved on his still-shiny wedding band.  They met in a statistics class at Oregon State University (my alma mater), and the toasts were rampant with “What are the odds?” jokes.  The best man did figure it out, however.  And the number was astounding.  The chances of them meeting in all of the statistics classes throughout their time at OSU was something like one in 14 million.  You could say they were meant to be together.  And photographing their wedding was such a privilege.

Happy Thursday!

The Smith Family – Maui Family Photography

The Smith family was recently in town for vacation and squeezed in some Maui family photography before they left.  We met them for a quick session in Wailea before their dinner reservations, and had so much fun.  We could tell immediately that the family loves to laugh, and has a magnetic chemistry together.  So it’s no surprise that Kenny and Gwen have a reality show piloting on TBS early next year.

Here’s a peek at our time together.  Happy Monday!

From Chicago to Maui Family Portraits

We had the absolute pleasure of photographing some Maui family portraits for this lovely family recently, on vacation from Chicago. Their boys loved the lava rock outcroppings, and mom got her fill of palm trees, leaving our shooting location a win for everyone! Before their session, Lisa and I spoke at length about what she wanted to get out of our time together.  Without hesitation, she emphasized portraits of the entire family.  Here’s a peek at the results.

Happy weekend!
