Maui Lifestyle Family Photography at Ironwoods Beach//08/31/2015

a sunfilled session on my favorite maui beach – full of youth, life, love, and family.

i love how this couple came in their beach clothes and were ready to play and get wet and run and kiss and twirl and have fun.

christine and family – mini session at ironwoods//07/31/2015

Mini sessions. I am not sure how I feel about them.  On one hand, the clients love them.   A 15-20 minute session with a lower price tag is a big sell to the husbands (and the kids).  And I love them because its makes me work fast and efficiently and really bring my A game. Because, here’s the thing, I don’t want the mini sessions to be a “cheaper” version of my full shoot. And my standards are high — many other photographer’s mini sessions are just a series of everybody looking, posed family photos, because if you want to cover the basics, that is all you can do.  But that is not enough for me.  I want all the same in between moments and candids and little things about the family that makes them them. I want the love to show.

But I have to hustle to bring that all out in that short time with just a few clicks.  In an hour session, people warm up and things evolve and the laughter starts being genuine and the love is easily seen.  There is no warm up time in the mini session.. maybe a 1 click warm up.  The only solution I can see is to  throw away some basics and go for some feelings instead, which this family had in spades.

Maui Family Photography at Home//07/27/2015

There is something special about shooting people where they live. I don’t get the chance much here because everyone always chooses the beach (and its awfully pretty so I don’t blame them).  But its refreshing to be in place where they live, where their toys are, where the love happens on the day to day basis.

I love shooting in people’s homes and it doesn’t particularly matter what the home looks like — its the light, the love, the connection, and the familarity of being home that makes the magic.

Maui Family Photography at Ironwoods Beach Kapalua//07/24/2015

I LOVE shooting families and I get to do an awful lot of it on the beach. It never gets old. The light, the love, the people — its so fulfilling and fun.   What can I say about this family? They have it all… closeness, ease, joy, love, beauty.
