session details

I’m a slow living-recovering-corporate-climber-toddler-mom with a camera and a serious love affair with my island home (Hawaii born and raised!).

And the first thing you should know is that my superpower is putting people at ease. 

Because honestly? Anyone can pick up a camera and push a button...

But making you feel taken care of? Comfortable? Seen?  That’s the most important part of my work.

And after photographing over 500 families, I’ve gotten pretty good at it ;)

As a parent myself I know time goes way too fast and I love helping clients capture these fleeting moments. 

When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me cooking up elaborate bowls of ramen with my husband or supporting other creative entrepreneurs growing their business.

After traveling all his life (he’s lived in Poland, England and California) Paul thanks his lucky stars to call Big Island home! Paul became a shutterbug as a young kid when he fell in love with photography while documenting his family road trips across Europe. Nowadays, you’ll find him both photographing and doing video work here in Hawaii.  An introvert at heart, Paul knows exactly what it takes to put clients at ease during their sessions and capture beautiful, connected moments.

Jess was raised on Oahu but has called Maui home for the past 6 years, with no plans of ever going back to the "big city,” thankyouverymuch! She has two amazing daughters --8 and 12-- who also happen to be her best surf/skate/adventure buddies! When she’s not behind the camera, you can find Jess on her longboard enjoying the surf breaks or teaching keiki aerial silks classes at Kihei's aerial arts studio.

It was a few years in when I realized something had to change…

I’d started my photography business to deliver an unforgettable experience to my clients and, you know, gorgeous images of their time in Hawaii... 

But I was burning the candle at both ends. Shooting. Editing. Marketing. Taxes. I did it all.

And that meant I couldn’t deliver the way I wanted to.

Plus, I was booking out months in advance and I hated the thought of continuing to turn down amazing people because I couldn’t squeeze in another session...

I decided I wanted more families to get my signature (stress-free!) Wilde Sparrow experience and went from a one-woman-show to a team effort. 

With the extra support, I’ve been able to expand our services while maintaining the highest quality of work for clients and an effortless, high-touch experience every step of the way.

Listen: I don’t just hire anyone to work within my brand. 

Every new associate goes through hands-on, deep-dive training sessions in my signature style of photography and session flow. If I’m not personally available for your travel dates you can book an associate photographer from the Wilde Sparrow team.

My editing team edits your images in my specific style and our booking manager makes booking your session a breeze.

Hear me now, believe me later: you’re in the best hands. Promise!

So in 2019,

"Wilde Sparrow Photography Aislinn was absolutely amazing to work with! Out family pictures will be treasured forever and I’m so glad we made the investment."

- the SUCHY family

"We've had family pictures taken many times but nothing like these, they are stunning and dreamy and captured my family so beautifully. I am so thankful for Wilde Sparrow's time and talent!"

- the Miller family

"Wilde Sparrow Photography is incredible. Simply incredible! I cannot stop smiling at our gallery, I look forward to working with them the next time we’re visiting the Big Island!"

- the baugh family

And that deserves to be documented.

Your Hawaii vacation is more than a trip - it’s an adventure.
