Hi! We're Shawn + Adam

We're husband and wife who formed our Love + Water Photography team on Maui in 2014. Since then we've created a series of weddings and sessions from the land + sea, drawing inspiration from the gorgeous colors of Maui sunrises and sunsets.

Lahaina Maui Family Photography in Hawaii

This article was written before the wildfires on Maui and the beach in this portrait session is no longer accessible. We encourate you to donate funds to @lahaina_ohana_venmo to provide direct aid to individuals and families directly affected by the catastrophic event.

Lahaina Maui family photography is made easy for our clients staying in West Maui. Whether sunrise with soft pastel skies or sunset with vibrant clouds, many areas of Maui offer a spectacular beach location for your family’s portraits. Lahaina is one of them!

If you’re taking part in a sunrise family photoshoot in Lahaina, we recommend stopping by Kihei Caffe in Lahaina. They also have a space in Kihei if you’re staying in south Maui!

Let’s dive in to some highlights from this family’s fun Lahaina Maui family photography session. Their shoot is the very reason we began photographing Land + Sea Sessions on Maui almost a decade ago. The sunrises we’ve photographed in that time never cease to amaze. A splash in the water during your Lahaina family photography session, of course, is often on the cards (that’s the foundation of our brand!)

3 reasons we love this Lahaina Maui family photography session

1. The effortlessly beautiful wardrobe for their Lahaina Maui family photos

Mom chose an excellent color palette for herself and her family. The soft colors blend well with sunrise, and their little one had time for an outfit change! We always recommend bringing a change of clothes for everyone in your group. This will allow you to switch things up. Coming with a change also gives an alternate option if you get sandy or wet prematurely!

2. The fun family photography connection

Connection is everything for your family’s portrait session! Your photographer will give plenty of direction to put everyone at ease. Allowing yourselves the freedom to let that love show, however, is what will ultimately produce the most authentic imagery. This is the foundation for an epic Lahaina family photography sesh!

3. The perfect pastels

We photographed our first sunrise session at this very beach several years ago. It’s a hit for a few reasons. For one, the water is shallow and protected. This leaves plenty of opportunity for water portraits if conditions are safe. The ocean paired with our favorite pastels is a win-win for any Lahaina family photography session!

This Lahaina family photography shoot was captured by our talented associate photographer. Looking for a photographer on Maui? We’ve got you covered! Based in Wailea, Maui, we have associates serving West Maui/Lahaina, as well as the Big Island and Oahu.
