Kailua-Kona Beach Family Photo Session

One of the best parts about being a photographer in Hawaii is the fact getting to work in one of the most beautiful places on earth! As an example – this dreamy Kona Beach Family Photo Session. How many people get to say their job is to get their toes in the sand and simply enjoy the beach, have fun with new friends, and use their creativity to capture joy and love? #swoon

Book Your Kona Beach Family Photo Session

It is easy to book a photo session here in Kona with Wilde Sparrow Photography. We recommend reaching out at least 1-2 months in advance, and the earlier the better! And if you have your heart set on a specific date, 3-4 months in advance is even better. If you are a super planner (like me!) – we open our books up 12 months in advance. The furthest out you can get on our calendars is one year.

Getting a Permit for Your Kona Beach Family Photo Session

As a client, first of all – you don’t have to worry a bit about permits! Our team handles all of this for you. 😊

In Hawaii, you need a permit to legally do commercial work on the beaches. Commercial work means being paid for photography. Without a permit, you’re looking at big fines and the very real and very embarrassing scenario of getting asked to leave a location in the middle of a shoot with paying clients if you can’t show your permit. YIKES.

This is why I only do photo sessions at locations that are permitted. I include the cost of the permit in session fees and our team handles acquiring all necessary permits for each session. You can read about the Hawaii Wiki Permits system here: https://wikipermits.ehawaii.gov/permits/welcome.html

If you have any questions about permits, please feel free to ask me! I don’t know everything and I’m not the expert on this, but I have been pulling permits for over 5 years so I can at the very least point you in the right direction!
