A Sun Trip – The Wiens’ Maui Family Portrait


In the midst of Alaska’s long and dark winters, the Wiens family has made it a tradition to embark on a “sun trip” to brighter pastures. Two years ago, they found themselves basking in the warmth of Maui’s golden beaches, and now they are back again to catch some rays. Meet Matt, the brilliant engineer, and Shelby, an oncology nurse with a heart of gold. Together, they have built a life filled with love, adventure, and two beautiful children. With sandy toes and hearts full of joy, the Wiens family embarked on a delightful Maui family portrait session that would serve as a tangible reminder of their fun in the sun!

Sandy Memories

Maui offered the Wiens family a welcome respite from their busy lives. The relaxed and friendly environment allowed them to unwind and enjoy each other’s company truly. With the gentle waves crashing against the shore at D.T Fleming Beach and the warm breeze caressing their skin, they felt a sense of peace and tranquility that is hard to come by amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The Wiens family desired to capture small yet meaningful moments during their time in Maui. As their children grow at lightning speed, they understand the importance of cherishing every precious phase of their lives. With the help of our talented photographer, they embraced the opportunity to freeze these moments in time. Their sunny memories on the beach will forever be encapsulated in these adorable frames!

With their energetic boys in tow, the Wiens family embraced the playful spirit of Maui. Sandy toes and carefree laughter filled the air as played with each other on their beach blanket. These carefree moments not only brought smiles to their faces but also served as a reminder to embrace the present and savor every single experience while their kiddos are still young!

Those photographs will serve as a joyful reminder of the sun-kissed moments they shared as a family.
