Animation and action serve to create portraits that evoke an emotional response

Interactive Sunset Portrait at Po’olenalena Beach

It always makes me smile when families are up to creating portraits that show some action and animation.  I really believe that this style of portrait communicates love, playfulness, and togetherness.  Take this portrait for example.   You can’t see the faces of the people, but you know they are having fun and making the most of their time together in paradise.  Years from now when the family members view the portrait they will immediately go back to Hawaii and remember all the great times and experiences had as a family.  As kids grow and get married this portrait will become one of their favorite family possessions.

Many times families ask us to create a portrait that includes not only the beauty of Hawaii but also the playful nature of their family. One of the ways we do this is to ask the family to go for a walk on the beach.

Living in the Moment

Golden Moment

While on vacation this young lady was enjoying the sunset in Makena Maui.

To create this image we used two off camera lights that were controlled by a radio transmitter.  We use tools like this to help shape light and create portraits with depth, dimension, and texture.
