Owner & Founding Photographer

Karma was born in Utah but grew up on a teeny tiny island in the Puget Sound called Vashon Island, so she truly is an island girl at heart!  She loves capturing and creating beauty, and finds enjoyment in her side hobby of interior design.

brooke

director of operations

Brooke is also from Maui, Kula to be exact.  Her three favorite things are burritos, baseball, and bulldogs. Anyone else see a pattern there?  "B" is for the BEST, which Brooke definitely is as well as all of her favorite things.

Cheynice was born and raised here on Maui!  In her free time she trains as a bodybuilder, which also helps her support her photography skills by building up her camera arm muscles.

Sophie

chantelle

photographer

Chantelle is originally from Maui but spent 12 years living in Lake Tahoe, California. It's a beautiful spot in the country, but it couldn't keep her from island life! She's a sucker for cheesy TV shows and alternative 90s music.

tenessa

Tenessa is originally from San Diego, California. Before finding her passion for photography, she spent quite a bit of time in front of the camera as a background actor on ABC TV and other major networks.  She was even in a Six Flags roller coaster commercial and went upside down on various loops over 40 times for several hours!

photographer

Kyra grew up in the art capital of the pacific, Lahaina. She loves travel and has lived in California, New York, and on Oahu before returning to Maui. She has an eye for all things beautiful and loves the culture art brings to a community. Besides taking incredible family portraits, she also loves to draw and paint.

Guille

photographer

Originally from Argentina, Guille is passionate about photography, especially landscape and wildlife photography, so Maui is a great place for him to indulge in that passion. Lucky for us he also loves photographing people and is great at putting our clients at ease if front of his lens.
