Aloha, I’m Shayla Tiare Ko’omoa
I’ve been a trusted Maui family photographer since 2012. My photographic style combines clean looking portraits with soulful, moment-driven candids, resulting in photos that truly stand the test of time.
My passion is to create heirloom worthy photographs that will be passed down for generations!
I’m a true local Maui girl, born and raised on this beautiful island! You can trust me to guide us on an adventure to find the best lighting and stunning paradise locations.

WELCOME TO SHAYLA TIARE PHOTOGRAPHY
Or as we say on the beautiful paradise island of Maui, Hawaii – Aloha!
I capture love, connection and the in between moments to create stories that last forever.
GET TO KNOW ME
Just a few of the things that are prominently featured in my life
LOVE TO EAT:
I have been a vegetarian my entire life. Yes, I know, it’s hard to believe. I love finding new foods that I can eat and fun recipes to try. I love eating out and supporting Maui’s local restaurants. I am honored and humored to be known by first name at all my favorite Maui restaurants.
IF I WASN´T A PHOTOGRAPHER..
I’d probably be a lawyer. It’s a joke in my family that I love a good argument and I’ve always been good at finding evidence to prove my point. My parents couldn’t help but change their mind—sorry, Mom!
MY FAVORITE HOBBIES:
I love to travel near and far, hike, build sand castles, surf, mountain bike and paddle board. I’m down to chase all the sunsets and rainbows. I enjoy spending time with my loved ones pretty much anywhere.
I´M MOST THANKFUL FOR:
My family! My husband and my four children are absolutely everything to me. Plus, I can’t forget about my amazingly helpful and supportive parents. After all, it really does take a village and I’m grateful to have one!

FAMILY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME! I FEEL SO INCREDIBLY LUCKY TO HAVE 4 HEALTHY CHILDREN.
We love to travel, hike, build sand castles, surf, paddle board and chase the sunset.
Our newest family member is one-year-old. She’s our rainbow baby and has brought our family so much joy! It has been heartwarming to watch the kids and their bond grow together. Mila is constantly winning us over with her contagious smiles and giggles as she tolerates the biggest hugs and kisses from the little AND big people in our family!
My highly sociable and talkative six-year-old has a heart of gold! She’s such a snuggly, kind, helpful and thoughtful sweetheart. Ariella loves to dance to her own beat, sing, scooter and tell funny stories all while talking our ears off. Haha!
It has been such a joy to watch Ariella as she buds out of toddlerhood and into a beautiful little girl.
My eleven-year-old son is very athletic! Zayden was my first love. Having him at such a young age, he has been there for my greatest joys and biggest mistakes. He has a very sweet humble heart. We are always surprised that he is good at most things he tries- even for the very first time! Fishing is his current favorite hobby. Oh, and backflipping on cement!
The oldest is my thirteen-year-old step son. He is a kind hearted young man that loves to swim at the beach, hang out with his friends, jump on the trampoline, skateboard and play video games. Cannon is very gentle and sweet. He loves to help out and is easy going. Our family is so lucky to have him as our oldest child.

I can’t forget the biggest one of our bunch- my hardworking and loving husband, Lihau. He makes sure everything in our life is running smoothly and stays consistent. He also happens to be the most amazingly prepared and best packer around. We are sure to have everything we could possibly want for camping trips and beach days. All while being a playful and active father. Oh… and he’s good at house work too! How did I get so lucky?!
