Earlier in the summer, before the craziness of wedding season began, I took a trip to Maui (the happiest place on earth in my opinion!) with a couple of my best girlfriends. It was a chance to rest and relax, and be a human being for a few days. At the time I was considering starting to shoot some boudoir (more on that to come!) and Kirsten modeled for me as we drove along the shore of West Maui one afternoon.
I could fill pages with how much this dear girl means to me, but I’ll simply say she’s one of the most important people in my life.
I’d never shot anything quite like this before, so I let the ocean and the trees and the sun and the sand inspire me. As completely cheesy as this sounds, this shoot awakened something in me, and I’m really quite proud of how it turned out. I welcome any and all feedback!
