With the holidays approaching, many families are considering have a portrait commissioned.  There are now over 300 photographers on the island, and each one has a nice website.  All have different levels of experience, ability, and fee structures.   Make sure you get what you want.   Take the time to find the right photographer for you. This guide was written to help consumers find the best portrait photographer for their family.

On behalf of Maui Photography, we would like to wish everyone a joyous holiday season.  May you all be well and be surrounded by those that love you!

Maui Photography – Beach portraits can be fun for the entire family

Families today are so busy that there never seems to be enough quality time together.  While at home everyone has their routine, but while on vacation the entire family is together.

As kids grow up they will remember certain things.  For example my daughter to this day cherishes the memory of us carving pumpkins for halloween.  Your kids might remember something like the day in Maui you had family portraits created and once the main portraits were done, the family had fun playing together in the sand or surf.Maui Family Portrait Photographer - Dawn_047

 

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

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.

 

 

November we are going to have…

 

Maui Family Portrait Photographer – Blum Family

Blum Family decided to do family portrait while on their vacation in Maui.  We had a nice chat.  Their busy vacation schedule and my work schedule were met.  In two days, we are on portrait session.  Next day, she came to my studio to view images projected on 5 feet monitor.  Planning for family portrait could be this easy :-)

Thanks to Blum Family for including me as a part of your Maui vacation!

Love,

Maui Family Photographer – Sullivan Family

We had a fun time with Sullivan Family on Monday. 

The happy Sullivan Family :-)

Its all started from these two.

Family is one.  But, each individual make their own foot prints.

Shooting up to create nice portrait with heavy bang.  You know, it’s in style now…

Memories of fun vacation time in Maui.

A lot of laughter during this session.

They were so happy and could not stop jumping around.

After the session, lounging around enjoying the beautiful sunset.

It was so nice to meet you all, Sullivan Family!

Maui Baby Portrait – Baby’s first portrait session in your house

 

When baby is born, pack up every little things that baby needs and leave your house could be challenging.  Your body is healing from child birth.  Baby’s sleeping pattern is not set yet.  Your other family member’s daily routine.  etc. etc….  That shouldn’t prevent you from giving him/her a first portrait session of life.  I will come to your house and find/create a beautiful professional lighting to produce memorable portraits.  Planning it is easy.  Contact me today info@mauiphotography.net  or (808) 879-0260.  Look forward to hear from you.

 

Maui Senior Portrait – Graduation Seasons

Congratulations to all of Class 2012s!  May your achievement will give courage to go thorough your next adventure called LIFE!

Recently, I received a wonderful thank you message from my sweet client, Laura Mayron.  If you do not mind, I would like to share it.  Because, It gave me smile ear to ear.

“I hope you’re doing well and that you had a great birthday! I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing work you’ve done on my graduation invitations. I absolutely love them, and I’m not the only one. You wouldn’t believe the response they’ve gotten! Everybody loves them, and I’m not exaggerating. For example, a classmate posted on my Facebook wall about them (you can go see it!), and another one just messaged me asking about them–she said that everyone is “raving about them,” and they are! I’ve heard from my college counselor that people have been stopping by her office just to see it on her bulletin board because everyone is talking about how beautiful they are! Everyone says that they wishes they had one like it–that the photos and layout are just beautiful, and one teacher of mine said it’s the best one she’s ever seen in all her years of teaching! Your work is absolutely amazing, and while I’m so happy about the positive response, in a way I’m not surprised at all–your work is beautiful! I’ve been telling everyone about you, since of course everyone asks where I got such amazing invitations, and I hope that even more good will come your way! Of course, you are more than welcome to come to graduation–I’d love to have you there if you can make it! Thank you again!”

Working with younger generation adults like Laura always gives me new level of inspiration.  I’m truly happy that I could come across to her life as photographer.  Capturing one’s developmental stage such as this senior portrait of Laura is a gift to me.  Thank you Laura!
