From Nevada to Maui: Family Photo Shoot in Wailea


I had so much fun photographing Alison and her family this week!

We waited until the week of to choose a location, and met up at the lovely Mokapu and Ulua beaches in Wailea, just south of Kihei on Maui. Lovely weather and a beach (almost) to ourselves was the perfect backdrop for this family’s photo shoot!


And, happy anniversary to Alison and Joe, I didn’t realize we were also celebrating your anniversary!


Alison’s husband, beautiful little girl, and both sets of grandparents made our sunset photo shoot in Wailea very special!

Location: Ulua Beach, Mokapu Beach Wailea, Maui. 

Happy Mother’s Day! Surprise Photo Shoot

Happy Mothers Day (14 of 30)

Happy Mother’s Day!

The week of Mother’s Day was so much fun!

The first photo shoot I had was with three brothers who wanted to surprise their mom with a photo of the three of them. What better place for a Mother’s Day photo shoot than a South Maui beach?

Happy Mother’s Day! Maui Photo Shoot Two


Happy Mother’s Day!

A pre-brunch photo shoot on Mother’s Day? These two sure know how to make their moms’ smile!

I had a great time with this couple and their moms on Mother’s Day morning in Wailea. We had a section of the beach almost to ourselves, so we could just relax and take pictures at our leisure. Thank you to Samantha and her family for sharing such a special day with Ardolino Photography!
