5-Minutes with Brooklyn

Nickname: B

Describe your job… I am a freelance photographer/designer/creative based in Haleiwa, Hawaii!

How did you get into blogging/social media? It all came quite naturally, as a photographer/creative, it is all part of the job. I never meant for my social media to be such a big part of my job, but I’m so glad it evolved naturally that way because it’s been a blast!

Take us through your typical day: I wake up in the jungle but first, coffee. Coffee talk with my girl friends is super critical to start my days, get inspired, catch up on the latest. Then off to a photo shoot or to my studio to work on the project of the moment! Hopefully an evening surf to end the day, and everything is right in the world. 

The ocean makes you feel… At home

If you weren’t taking photos what would you be doing? I would love to be a fine artist of some sort, the love of art is flowing through my veins so I couldn’t stray too far.

What is one thing most people wouldn’t know about you? I’m actually quite shy and introverted.

Favourite travel destination? Tahiti, hands down.

Who inspires you? Jesus, my parents, my friends who come from all walks of life, my boyfriend Kaiwi.

Favourite Instagram moment? I loved working for Adidas, it was really my first big social media job but knowing they trusted me in creating content for them gave me the confidence I needed to propel me to the next level.

What are the 5 things you pack when you go traveling that you can’t live without? WaterShot housing for my iPhone, Shiseido sunscreen, Issa de’ Mar bikinis, Mizu glass water bottle, and my cameras of course!

Parting words of advice…. Do well what you love & the rest will follow
