I love photographing people in their element. More formal portraits have their place, but my favorites will always be ones that show off lifestyle. I often quote “To make living itself an art, that is the goal,” and these types of portraits perfectly reflect why. Real life is beautiful in all it’s simplest unstaged moments, like gearing up or waiting for the perfect wave. I’m so happy I was able to meet up with Chelsea for this type of early morning surf session in North Shore, Oahu. Hawaii is known for its waves so a good spot wasn’t hard to find. It was inspiring to watch such effortless talent glide across the ocean. I can definitely see the draw to getting lost out there in your own world.
Chelsea is such a sweetheart, she even let me take her board out for a bit. Good thing I took advantage of the opportunity since Oahu’s famous high winter swells came in just hours later. Oahu Hawaii Lifestyle Portraits.
