I was so excited when my friend Sarah came to me and wanted to do a session. I've been encouraging her to do one for years now and despite wanting to, she is always putting it off saying she wants to lose weight before. It breaks my heart because this girl is so beautiful. So when we both were in Maui together, she couldn't pass up the location - her mama is from the islands and she grew up with a deep connection to these waters - so we planned a bikini shoot! Hip Hip Hurray!
I believe every woman is treasured beauty. Often we just need a little help uncovering or remembering that reality. I've been blessed with the ability to see each woman's beauty and it is my purpose and mission in life to share this blessings with others. Especially those who cannot see it in themselves.
When I first meet someone, my mind starts creating images that best encompass that person's unique allure - from the light, the colors, the ambience. Maybe it's a certain angle that you just can’t see in the mirror. Maybe it's the perfect lite environment. Maybe it's a mood or expression waiting to be released. Whatever it is, once discovered, an entire rush of positive feeling, confident emotion and authentic love is released. I believe this is where “sexy” starts and this is photography becomes so fun and rewarding for me.
For Sarah, it was here in the blue waters of Maui, sand beneath her bare feet, and the thought of surprising her love that she was able to see and feel the incredible beauty she is.
