Intimate Maui Pregnancy Photo session
Lara & Aaron had one last chance to sneak away before their doctor grounds them.This is basically their last little vacation before the stork arrives and they become a family of three!
Wanting to explore every inch of Maui, upon arrival to Maui they immediately hit the road to Hana. They stayed at a posh Bed & Breakfast in Hana town. Their very favorites activities were swimming in the watering holes and checking out the black sand beach of Waianapanapa Beach Park.
Having spent two days in the jungle they headed all the way across the island to Kapalua, where they had a photo session scheduled with me. The cloud cover of the day made for soft lighting which as a photographer I always Love. Was great watching these two as they just did their own thing. Love it unscripted & natural, no direction needed! After our super fun session, Aaron treated his lady to a delicious dinner at Merriman’s Restaurant. Enjoy the images.

Special shout out to Kimberly & Sean for this referral as I always really appreciate it!
Aloha & Mahalo

Just this past Easter Sunday, Casler, had hidden Easter Eggs all over, with his girlfriend unaware of his intention, she begins to search for eggs. After finding eggs hidden in various spots, she finds the “Golden Egg”. Opening it, she sees the engagement ring he had hidden in there, he drops to one knee, pops the question & she says “YES”! Very romantic!
He, then surprises her with a engagement getaway to Maui, where he has many other romantic surprises already planned, including an engagement session with me.
They wanted something a little different so I took them to this cool jungle spot on Maui’s West side to start with. We found this spot that had this incredible natural back lighting happening.
Adri was a trooper mountain climbing in her super tall heels, but the results of her efforts were definitely worth it. Loving all the natural beauty around them, they enjoyed some very sweet moments that made for great photography. We continued to another location where the tall pine trees made for another terrific background as they spontaneously held hands & danced. The journey continued to the lava rocks in front of Merriman’s Restaurant in Kapalua. Was just loving the cool reflections coming from the wet rocks.
Adri wanted to feel the soft sand of Kapalua Beach so we finished on the sand @ Sunset time. Was a another terrific sunset with a peppering of clouds over Molokai which lit up it up with some awesome colors as the evening sun hit it. Adri & Casler were pretty much speechless as they reminisced about their evening. Casler was not done with the surprises though, as he topped the evening off with a Romantic Dinner for Two at Merriman’s restaurant.
Congratulations Adri & Casler & I wish you both the very, very best for your future.
Enjoy your pictures! Tad

A really sweet couple, totally & completely in love. This shoot for me was especially fun as we had all sorts of time to explore Maui’s beauty & I had been wanting to go to this little jungle area on Maui’s north-west side for as long as I can remember.
The little Maui Jungle I brought them to was INCREDIBLE. The lighting was just so unbelievably beautiful & dramatic. After the jungle experience, we headed to Pineapple Hill in Kapalua for another slice of Maui heaven. The pine trees that line the road on Pineapple Hill, made for more stunning shots and of course, Carly and Claudio were soaking all the beauty in.
Our last stop took us to Merriman’s Restaurant at Kapalua Bay where they finished the day with a delightful meal. First however, we ventured out on the lava rocks right in front of the restaurant for sunset pictures.
Maui’s incredible beauty continued to shine as the entire evening was spectacular.
Special Mahalos to Dan Sanchez for Carly’s beautiful hair and to Dellables for her delightful bouquet!
