What a fantastic experience! You are each amazing, and I cannot thank you enough. Mapuana, I felt like I knew you the moment I walked in. Thank you so much for being so positive and encouraging - you made me feel beautiful and that is a rare thing! I’m sure the pictures will be amazing because of your direction and talent. Many mahalos.
I absolutely love ALL of the photos from our viewing session! Thank you so much for making it so easy and making me feel amazing! I am forever grateful and can’t wait to book a session with my family soon.
Putting on lingerie and having photos taken made me extremely nervous and self conscious. I'm so focused on my curves and flaws that I see daily. When it was time for me to review my photos, I got so emotional, I even teared up, because I saw myself through different eyes. I saw that I am beautiful person. I'm so ecstatic about this experience and I'd do it all over again! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
One of the best days I’ve had in a loooong time! Mapuana is such a talented photographer who captured me exactly how I always dreamed. Biggest thanks to Mapuana Reed Photography for making me feel so beautiful! As soon as I got engaged, I knew she needed to be the one to photograph me in my wedding dress. It's important to seek out the photographer that will capture you how you want to be captured.
I have to say that since I met Mapuana at the Women's Expo about six years ago or so, I've been wanting to do a photo session. I am now not only a mother of three, I am a new grandmother, I'm a glam-ma. I have been brought to tears several times thinking about my shoot. I've mentioned to some of my dearest friends that I was doing it, they asked me "what is it for?" my answer was "for myself" but I’m not sure that they truly got it, unless they knew my story. My “why” runs deep and that is where so much emotions come from. I love my beautiful photos and that they remind me I am beautiful!
This photoshoot that I did with Mapuana Reed definitely took my breath away. I originally did it as a gift for him not knowing I'd leave that studio with a much greater gift to myself... Acceptance. Her work is inspirational and she has this passion to show all women just how beautiful we are. She showed me the back of her camera during our shoot and I couldn't help but cry because honestly, I'm not the prettiest girl in the world and I was always comparing myself with other females. I never ever thought I could be beautiful until that day in front of her camera. Don't ever let someone tell you that you aren't beautiful!
Mapuana is hands down the most Amazing photographer! It is truly a very emotional time when your keiki transitions into adulthood. I thank you so much for capturing this moment for me and my girls. Beautiful work to be cherished forever! Thank you so much Mapuana Reed Photography!
Mapuana is so easy and calming to work with. I so enjoyed my session with her. Even if you only try it once in your life, you'd be foolish to not book a session with Mapuana Reed Photography. It's a chance of a lifetime!
As you get older you realize that you have to celebrate every moment, whatever size you are. Mapuana makes you feel so comfortable - it only takes one person to say “you’re beautiful” for you to realize that you are beautiful. Seeing myself in the photos makes me feel that I can be a better woman. These bring out a strength in me that I don’t see when I look in the mirror. It makes me just want to BE better, create more, dream more.
Best glamour photographer hands down! She captured our family photos and brought my vision to life! Love Mapuana and her amazing team!
Ever since the first moment I laid my eyes on the amazing work of Mapuana, I knew that if I ever committed to having portraits of myself done, I wanted her to do them. My place is usually behind the lens, so getting me to take the time to get in front of it is a challenge that is easily replaced by the responsibilities of my daily life and primary job as a mom, and me putting everyone else's needs ahead of my own. There will never be a right time, and there will always be a reason to not do a session, but the time for me was now. I did it and have no regrets, and have Mapuana to thank for capturing the me that I never saw before.
Thank you Mapuana for all the work you do to not only making people look and feel beautiful but to also make people feel comfortable in their own skin! I am so happy I finally did this shoot!
Mapuana helped to make me look and feel so beautiful! If you're looking to do photos, Mapuana and her team are amazing! Mapuana does everything from boudoir, to family photos, to engagement! She can make anything happen! She's the best of the best!
I absolutely love the way the photos came out! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience from beginning to end. I have never felt more beautiful and at peace with myself than in those photos. Thank you Mapuana for helping me to see what was there all along and helping me be able to truly see what everyone else sees. I started to tear up looking at them. You helped me see the beauty and I couldn’t be more grateful for helping to open my eyes. Thank you, thank you for it all!
