The Maui Photo Experience

I love adventures and I especially love when my photoshoot clients join me on them. This was my first time visiting Maui and I’m in absolutely in love. It really is as beautiful as you imagine it to be. I was grateful that Laureyn decided to join me on this adventure and spend a beautiful day creating art together.

Laureyn, what inspired you to do this photoshoot?

I was inspired by life and learning to genuinely love myself no matter what. I modeled when I was younger and gained weight, and stopped following my passion because I was concerned I wasn’t “The Norm” I finaly learned that living outside of the box is where all of the fun in life is. No limits.

What was your favorite part about your photoshoot experience?

My favorite part of the shoot was the location and also shooting with you in general. You helped me relax when I got tense. I felt like we had worked together forever. It was the perfect location, team and mood for this shoot. Everything just fell into place.

Did you always feel comfortable in front of the camera?

Not always, if I thought too hard I got nervous, but not for too long. You were able to sense it and help me relax.

What advice would you give someone wanting to book a photoshoot?

I would tell them to Book with Andrea, it’s a win win. Choose a photographer with experience and one who is personable and knowledgeable. Also relax and think about how amazing you are, and don’t worry about the finished product, it’ll be great. Choose your outfits and location wisely, seek advice from your photographer.
