Happy Aloha Friday, and welcome to the first day of spring! Winter was a busy time for us not only with weddings but family portraits that we were fortunate enough to photograph on Maui. Here are some of our favorites from last season, in no particular order!

Winter Maui Portrait Moment #10

MOTHER AND BABY

Esther and her baby wrapped up in something warm and headed to the beach, where we photographed a unique set of Maui portraits for them. This one of Esther cuddling her son was a standout.

COUPLE KISSING AT SUNSET

The skies behind Yoshi and Ayako turned brilliant and pink during their portrait session at one of our favorite Maui beaches. The palm trees in the background of this shot and pastel skies make it one of our favorite Maui couples portraits from the winter!

DAD AND DAUGHTER

Nothing could keep this lively little girl away from the shoreline, and every time the water lapped over her feet she ran back to dad screaming with joy. It was incredible to spend the afternoon with this family who had so much love for each other, and the ocean.

UNIQUE BEACH MATERNITY SESSION ON MAUI

Katherine and her husband didn’t bring a spare set of clothes to their portrait session in Lahaina, but they took one for the team and we were able to gather a set of unique images with Adam photographing from the water, and I from land. This is one of our favorites!

SURPRISE PROPOSAL ON MAUI

Kevin proposed to his now fiancee Wendy on the beach in Maui, flying over to Maui form Oahu to treat her to a morning water session and surprise proposal at sunset. We took them to a beach that is a bit more under the radar to ensure they had privacy, he popped the question and she said yes! This image was taken as Kevin wiped a tear from Wendy’s eye.

PHOTOBOMBER

This girl was so adorable! She couldn’t keep away for a minute and tried to sneak up while her mom was having maternity portraits taken.

MAUI SENIOR PORTRAIT

Brooke is headed to college and we love this shot from her family’s portrait session. Maui is a windy place, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing – the key is to work with whatever the afternoon brings!

PLANE SPOTTING

Dad and daughter did some plane spotting during their sunset portrait session here on Maui, I love the connection between the two in this image.

RINSING OFF

With more than a dozen family members in their group portrait, the kids were ready to cool off after an energetic session. Who says you need a swimsuit? Sometimes it’s easier just to bolt for the ocean and hope mom and dad don’t call you back!

Let the kids be kids! Let the kids be kids!

HIDE AND SEEK

We love this moment between an uncle and his niece playing hide and seek during their family portrait in Lahaina. It’s all about having fun, after all!
