Maui, you gorgeous girl!
Did you know I travel to Maui about once a month for sessions? It’s a small travel fee (to cover airfare and rental car!) and then I’m all yours on the valley isle. When I am island hopping, I try to book a few sessions while I’m there to make the most of my visit so if you’re traveling with friends, even better – you can split the travel fee!
Maui always seems to dazzle at sunset. Kihei is my favorite area of the island for sessions on Maui – the clouds, the sunset – it’s all magical. This family was a blast from start to finish. One of those sessions where I honest to god never stopped smiling. And that’s saying a lot because it was 95º and SUNNY. Relentless sunshine. It’s hard to complain about sunshine, but my fellow photographers know that all that sun means creative camera angles and constant sweat wiping to avoid shiny faces.
In the end – it’s all worth it though. We danced (literally) on the beach – yes even these amazing boys! I made sure we got a chance to capture the boys with mom and dad separately as well. It’s so important to capture not only your entire family, but all of the special relationships that make up your family as well.
My favorite part of the job is getting to know everyone’s personalities and help bring those out in your pictures. These are your memories after all! So besides dancing, we’ll get the wiggles out, run across the beach, stop to admire the birds that swing by to say hi during your shoot – and SO much more. All of this to ensure that besides walking away with gorgeous photos, you’ll always fondly remember your photoshoot with me.
