I’ve been shooting family pictures here in Hawaii since the late 90’s. It’s a great place to have your family portraits done. We have good weather all year round. The beach is the most popular place for a family photo session here but we also have a lot of easily accessible forests and gardens that are also great for a family photo shoot. I’m used to shooting all sizes of families. I regularly shoot extended family groups. You can bring multiple families to the beach and we can get a photo of everyone together and then do the individual family groups. I have two options for timing for the shoot– morning or sunset. The sunset ranges in Hawaii from around 5:45 in the winter to about 7:15 in the summer. I recommend shooting from 45 minutes for small groups to up to 90 minutes for large multi family groups. As you can probably tell from the portfolio I love to shoot pictures of kids. I grew up in a large family so I am used to lots of small children.
