Smiling Faces, Happy Hearts - The Ching Family's Maui Portraits

Welcome back, Ching Family! It's always a pleasure to see smiling faces return, especially when they are as sweet as this group! The years since we last saw them have been kind. With the adults looking younger while the kids look older, this is still a gorgeous group that we love working with. As always, they are just so excited to gather the whole family together on vacation! Having a Maui Family Portrait to capture the bonding time between the parents, siblings, cousins, and grandparents is such a wonderful way to commemorate the special trip. We are so honored that the Ching Family thought of Karma Hill Photography again. Thank you! We enjoyed spending time with this happy bunch and can't wait until next time! Until then, Warm Aloha!!!

Pitch Perfect in Paradise - Daria's Senior Portraits

With a bright Hawaiian sun shining overhead, Daria and her family arrived to Baldwin Beach to document another fabulous family vacation and a milestone in this lovely young lady's life. Heading into her senior year of high school, she's a talented musician with skills on her flute, violin, and piccolo. College is definitely on the horizon but, as of yet, it's undecided which school will be lucky enough to have her. All she knows is that it will be somewhere in her home state of Ohio, much to the delight of her loving family. This adorable Mid-Western family is actually one we have come to know over the years. We had the pleasure, a couple of years ago, of shooting the Maui Senior Portrait her Daria's older brother too. What a fabulous tradition to begin! With two more kids yet to hit this step, we look forward to welcoming back this darling family in the years ahead. Thank you, Daria and family, for choosing Karma Hill Photography again! Daria, we wish you continued success with your music and your adventure ahead. You're going to be amazing!!! 
Best Wishes & Warm Aloha!!!

A Moment For Two - Rachel & Robert's Maui Couple Portraits

On a gorgeous evening, with a stunningly dramatic coastline as the setting, we had the pleasure of meeting up with Rachel and Robert. In town from Vegas, this was not just any ordinary trip. This was the trip parents the world over look forward to - the first one without the kids! Ha! A chance to remember that before you were mom and dad, you were just a couple in love. If that's not reason to celebrate, I don't know what is. This beautiful couple deserved their moment in the setting sun to just enjoy one another. With their four active boys back home, safe and sound, Rachel and Robert had a blissful retreat that allowed for dates nights, relaxation, and rejuvenation. It also allowed for a Maui Couples Portrait! What better way to capture this moment than with professional photos in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Thank you, Rachel and Robert! We had so much fun with you two and couldn't be more honored you chose our team. Warm Aloha!!!

Mama's Fish House Magic - The Tobin Family's Maui Portraits

For the Tobin Family, time in the islands meant family bonding in paradise. Having made the trip from Washington State, they were ecstatic to have fun in the sun with one another. Snorkeling, laughing, fishing, playing. These are the moments that family vacations are made for. A first time in Hawaii for everyone except mom, they wanted to capture a Maui Family Portrait to have as a forever keepsake. Mama's Fish House Beach was a shining gem with its lush foliage, cool water scenes, and interesting landscapes. A fabulous setting for an awesome family. Though the fishing may have left them empty handed, they have hearts full of love and we were honored to have met them. Thank you, Tobin Family, for choosing the Karma Hill Photography team! Until we meet again, Warm Aloha!!!

12 Years In The Making - Marisela & Deon's Maui Wedding

What a spectacular night for a well deserving couple. Marisela and Deon were blessed with an incredible setting for their Maui Wedding on Polo Beach. Before making its descent, the sun cast a warm and glowing light upon this very excited and happy family. With their daughter on hand, as well as Marisela's mom, the love was in the air and practically tangible. With this moment being 12 years in the making, they were bursting with excitement and happy tears. This Texas troop was so sweet and we were grateful to have been included in the momentous occasion that legalized what they felt in their hearts. Thank you, Marisela and Deon, for choosing our team to to capture this moment. We wish you all a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations & Warm Aloha!!!

Moana Magic! Evelyn's Most Magic of Childhood Portrait

I LOVE doing these magic of childhood shoots! Little Evelyn and I share a passion for Disney and in particular the movie Moana. What better place than Maui to do a Moana themed photoshoot! We were just missing Maui as her dad decided he didn't want to get that many Tattoos! LOL Little Hina the pig who is a family pet of a local family showed up as Pua and a squeezable Hei Hei made the magic complete.

After we had fun seeing how far we could go with the Moana theme ( pun intended ) we switched gears and went full on beach princess! The team at Dellables created a beautiful floral swing for Evelyn to sit on and also made for a cute back drop for mom and dad to sneak a few couples photos in!

Then we moved on to our beach fort fit for a princess complete with lace and shells.  Finally as a reward for being such a fabulous model Evelyn got to play in the sand and ocean. It is such a blast creating such magic moments for these kids and I think I had as much fun as she did!

Thanks Evelyn and Family for choosing me as your Maui Photographer and creating some Maui Magic together!!

Romance On A Grassy Knoll - Valerie & Ali's Maui Destination Wedding

Having always thought an island wedding would be amazing, the idea gained merit after Valerie and Ali started adding up their guest list for a wedding at home. After that, a Maui Destination Wedding became the perfect plan. At home in San Diego, this gorgeous couple can usually be found exploring their area with son Kamron but they were excited to have a new place to find adventure. Although this beaming bride had been here before, it was a first for the men in her life so she was more than happy to share this piece of paradise with them. Coming together before an intimate gathering of loved ones, the joy was palpable in the air as the adorable pair said their vows. It was a moment neither of them will be forgetting any time soon. To the cheers and delight of all in attendance, they were officially pronounced husband and wife as the sun sank towards the sea. It's safe to say that the romantic wedding with the ocean back drop was well worth it. We can't thank Valerie and Ali enough for letting us join in their celebration. We are so happy for you both!
Congratulations & Warm Aloha!!!
