She has always been intrigued by being behind the scenes and has a true passion for capturing the whole story through photography. Talia shares an insight to herself and some of her favorite images below that make Maui her Paradise Found.
I was born and raised on Maui, grew up with the ocean and jungle as my playground. I started my entrepreneurial journey at 12 years old when I started making and selling jewelry from shells I found on morning beach walks before school. One of my favorite parts of running my jewelry business was planning and photographing my small campaigns with my friends. Throughout my teen years and early 20s I got to travel the world as an athlete racing & surfing in stand up paddle events. About 6 years ago I switched gears and started my career as a photographer and have been loving every minute of getting to work with the best brands and people while capturing their stories.
My Paradise Found location would have to be Maui!
Although I love traveling and experiencing new places, people and cultures. After traveling to some pretty amazing places that are so awesome. There is nothing like getting to fly home to Maui. It is one of the most beautiful places I've seen with such a wide variety of terrain and places to enjoy and explore. But more than all of that we have the most beautiful strong community of people, who know how to take care of each other. Which we have all really seen this past summer with everything we've endured with the Maui fires.That's why Maui is my Paradise.
Images mainly captured with a Canon 5D Mark 4 50mm lens.
