Malinee and Rich Carosso are longtime Maui residents who first met while both were living in Japan as young adults in 1993. Malinee, who is originally from Thailand and had lived in 4 countries by the time she was 14, became smitten with Rich at first sight when she spotted him across the room at a party and immediately knew he would one day be her husband.
After a 6-year courtship across several continents, the two married and settled on Maui as home. As Malinee puts it, “Maui is the best of both worlds. It’s East meets West.” The beauty and friendliness of the island of Maui made its impression on the couple who stayed and started a family a few years after moving here. First came Dominic, 13, then Marina, 11, two years later.
The family had never done a formal photo session together, but were quickly in agreement on a beach location as they often spend their time together at the beach or camping. A morning session at Baldwin Beach made for some beautiful blue skies and water and a great place for them to also bring the family dog, Ginger, who loves the beach and time with her Maui family.
Thanks Malinee, Rich, Dominic, Marina, and of course, Ginger, for having me shoot your Maui beach photography session! If you would like to schedule a family photo session at Baldwin Beach, click here to contact me or call me directly at 808-344-1550.
