​​For families looking to capture genuine moments in time, Maui West is a documentary photography
company that specializes in visual storytelling. With Maui West your images are never cut and paste.
Storytelling photography is a candid style of photographing. You can expect to receive images that are authentic and raw, capturing the essence and character of your family photography session. Your images will tell the story of who you are as a family and what makes you unique, resulting in images that travel from your eyes to your heart.

I offer two Documentary sessions 2 and 4 hours. In both sessions I candidly photograph your family while doing something you enjoy to do together or just enjoying a typical day together. Sessions are unscripted and revolve around capturing your family the way you currently are, in an artistic and creative way.

Hi! I'm Ariel

Working together during your family session you can expect a session that
is enjoyable and images that document your unique life.

Having a toddler myself, I know how stressful it can be to get them to sit and smile or even stay still at times. With my style of photographing, everyone gets to relax and be themselves which is especially important in capturing genuine personalities. Children can running around, laugh, cry and it's all acceptable, because your session is about documenting a time in your life. Your unique story that reflects who you really are. When there are no expectations, authentic emotions and stories can be captured.

As a professional visual storyteller I am patient, observant, and reliable. I believe in quality and capturing the right moments.
