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

photographer & editor

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

photographer

Sophie first visited Maui on vacation four years ago and decided she loved it so much she would just stay! She has a true adventurous spirit, she hiked the Pacific Coast Trail for a month and enjoys getting around the island on her Honda CBR300 motorcycle, Vroom Vroom!!

samantha

photographer

Samantha and her sweet personality are from Charleston, South Carolina. She spent 13 years dancing classical ballet. She danced even throughout college, and also designed scenery for plays and musicals!

Moorea

photographer

Moorea is named after the Tahitian island of the same name. Although she did not grow up in the islands, it seems almost inevitable she would end up here with a name like that! Moorea loves to be in nature and spends as much time in the great outdoors as possible.

niki

photographer

Niki was born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Raleigh, NC. She found her passion for photography when she left the south in her early 20s to travel the world. Now a long time resident of Maui, she enjoys spending time on the beach, snorkeling, gardening, and hiking to waterfalls.

tenessa

photographer

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!

kyra

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.

Ev

photographer

When not behind the camera Ev is a skilled pianist! She performed a piano concerto with the Honolulu Symphony in college, played piano since 6 and currently operates a piano studio out of her home with about 15 students!
