Kristen Reyno of Lola Pilar Hawai'i grew up on O'ahu surfing, hiking, and enjoying the life that living on an island paradise provides. Being surrounded by so much beauty, she started photographing her surrounding and a passion for photography blossomed. Her inspiration grew from capturing the sea, mountains, and vibrant flowers in Hawai'i, and eventually lead her to Brooks Institute of Photography in Ventura, CA, where she received a B.A. in film, and a career with a major surf company as a staff photographer. Kristen had a dream of being able to capture the world in unique ways to bring joy to others, so she moved home to O'ahu to open her own photography business.
