Adventure always seems to arrive when we crave it most. Ariel was itching to get on a plane. It had been a year since our flight to Taiwan, and when we were asked to do a family photo session in Maui, it took us less than a second to say yes.
The trip turned into something more than a family photo session. We also brought along Snorkel Grandma, and invited her two "sister", Pate and Auntie Yam, as additional surprise guests, and not to mention, models for all those wonderful muumuus.
If you plan to travel to Maui with kids, stay in the best Airbnb on the planet (omg, really Shannon is amazing!) and just stay near the north shore. It has everything you need (the baby beach at Baldwin Beach, right outside of Paia is gorgeous -- we went three times!), it's peaceful, rural and near the road to Hana, which you might not get very far down with little ones ;) We made it to the rushing waterfalls and took a hike through the rain -- then headed back to get in the pool!
Hawaii was such a luxurious and wonderful place to spend a winter holiday and we can't wait to go back soon. Soooo ALOHA at us -- we're available for weddings, family shoots -- whatever you need!
