I am a Maui girl, born and raised. I love to cruise around the island taking photos of this beautiful island. Maui is such a fun and light-hearted place to be. I like to reflect the spirit of the island through my photographs.
- I was a Performance Supervisor for Alaska Airlines here on Maui for six awesome years! I love Alaska Airlines.
- I love travel. There's nothing like jumping on a plane and jet-setting to someplace new. I also love to exercise for mental clarity.
- I can't live without coffee!

"Taena was an amazing photographer and had such a great vision and eye for the scenes we wanted to capture. She made both my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera, and treated us like an old friend. She made sure to ensure the areas she asked me to stand were safe and not slippery as I was almost 6 months pregnant. We had a great time hanging out, and got some amazing photos from this special time in our lives." - Kulvinder

"Taena took the time to learn all 15 people's names! That was no small feat. She was also very receptive to our wishes for the shoot and did a great job of moving to different spots to ensure we had a variety of shots (palm trees, surfboards, beach, fence). She gave equal time and care to each family and provided us with a nice mix of family fun and portraits." - Kristen
"We loved our session with Taena in Maui. Her relaxed and welcoming personality made us feel comfortable with her and in front of the camera right away. She took our thoughts on a shoot location and recommended the most incredible spot where we had the beach all to ourselves! It was a gorgeous morning and we love the photos." - Megan
