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

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.
