One of my favorite beaches in Wailea for a family photo session is Polo Beach, not only because of the spectacular views of Kaho’olawe, Molokini and West Maui, the lava rock and the light sand, but also because it is a quieter beach without the crowds that some of the other Maui beaches have. At this beach, you usually don’t have to worry about people in your backgrounds which any photographer will tell you, is a nice thing to not have to worry about!
When Jessie and John Hinfey were contemplating a family photo session with me, I thought Polo Beach would be perfect. We had privacy and space to play (2 rambunctious 8 and 10-year-old boys!) so that the family could feel comfortable to be themselves and not be distracted by other beachgoers. The boys were able to be silly and just be boys while Mom and Dad enjoyed one another in the peaceful, calm setting that Polo Beach provides.
The session went without a hitch and not only did we get a great sunset, but we had a great time on a beautiful summer night on Maui! What more can you ask for?! Thanks, Jessie, John, Jacob and Sean for asking me to capture your family photo session on Maui!
