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.

Sunrise family photoshoot in Wailea

Why choose Wailea for your sunrise family photoshoot? Besides offering an abundance of beautiful sandy beaches, there’s so much to do after the fact! Sunrise is the perfect time of day for a portrait session. It’s calm and still, dripping in pleasing pastel tones and yes, the secret is out that sunrise is epic, but the beaches are nearly empty!

This sunrise family photoshoot captured by our team is perfect in so many ways. The full moon hovering overhead, the breezy and beautiful outfit choices. Don’t forget those soft purple tones early mornings often bring on Maui.

If you’re considering a beach photoshoot at sunrise, we suggest booking early in your stay in Hawaii. If your family tends to sleep in a bit and you’re coming from the mainland, the time change won’t feel so severe. As parents ourselves, we know the nap schedules of kids can be unpredictable, so getting a session over with at sunrise leaves the rest of the day to rest and explore.

As you can see, sunrise on the beach on Maui is stunning. Its gentle colors and sounds lend themselves perfectly to enjoying a stress-free morning with your loved ones.

As Maui photographers we love to share useful information with our clients and clients-to-be. Here are a a couple of key resources we know you’ll enjoy!

Based on Maui, we capture family photography sessions on the beach in Wailea, West Maui/Lahaina, as well as on Oahu and the Big Island. If it’s time to update your family’s photos (and let’s be honest, it is) this is your sign to dive in!
