It all started when...
Fourteen years ago, I moved from New Jersey to Big Island of Hawaii'i. It took me a little while to adjust from East Coast living to living in the middle of the ocean all while finding my way in a new school my senior year of high school. After adjusting to island life, there was something magical about Hawai’i the that pulled at my soul. While exploring the Big Island, every step I took and behind every corner there was always a breath-taking backdrop waiting to be photographed, I just couldn’t put my camera down, now at this time I was using disposal and underwater cameras! During this time is when my love of photography grew and it became much more than just a hobby and I actually bought a real camera. Years later, my journey brought me to Maui and my photography expanded even more.
My husband and I met six years ago while he was here on vacation. We went on a few dates and he left for the mainland. We dated long distance and flew back and forth during the year and a year later we were married. We debate who was going to make the move, even though we were married but living in two different states. We now happily call Maui home and have three fur babies, two dogs and a cat. I have also been teaching kindergarten for the past seven years and love my job and feel blessed that I can also pursue my love of photography as well.
A few fun facts about myself: I love dresses, I wear them all the time! I am currently binge watching Grey's Anatomy and Friends even though I've seen every episode. I could live off of soup, string cheese and grapes. Now that Maui has a Target, I go about 4-5 times a week, usually just needing to pick up one item and coming out with a cart full of items I didn't need. My husband and I are certified scuba divers and this has become one of our favorite past times along with game nights with friends, enjoying the sunset, or cuddling on the couch watching Survivor.
