Shooting Moana Bikini’s “Island Time” Campaign

A glimpse into the making of Moana Bikini’s 2017 Campaign “Island Time” in Oahu, Hawaii.

In mid-September, I flew out to Oahu, HI for a week-long campaign shoot for Moana Bikinis. The first half of the week was spent in our own beach house right above Shark’s Cove.

Processed with Snapseed.

Every day was a long, but fun day of shooting. We started early and would be out until the sunset.

Every morning, I got my hair and makeup done by Michael Huxley. Beach waves and glowing skin were the main focus in creating the look for Moana 2017. I constantly got oiled up with Bali Body to give my skin that summertime sheen, which is important when shooting swimwear.

After wrapping up on the North Shore, we packed up our things and cruised over to the South Shore, Waikiki. We took the scenic road back to town, stopping along the way to shoot.

In Waikiki, we checked into our hotel, and I got some free time to spend surfing at Queens and Canoes in Waikiki.

My last day in Hawaii, we took out a catamaran to watch the sunset.
