Hawaii Beach Family Photos in Oahu

Family Sessions

Travel adventure sessions with clients are some of my favorite moments to capture. It’s really about the the destination and experiencing the natural beauty at your chosen location. This Winter, I was able to visit Honolulu, Oahu, and Kailua Beach with my own family. We absolutely love the diversity of the scenery here, and it was our first time visiting here with our son.

A newborn adventure

After posting that I had some availability during our travels to Hawaii, this lovely family of three immediately got in touch. My clients were eager to create lasting memories with their precious newborn baby at one of their favorite adventure spots to visit. We knew we wanted to capture the beauty of Hawaii’s natural landscapes, but also wanted to find a secluded spot where we could have some privacy to enjoy the moment. With the guidance of my client who is familiar with the island of Oahu and Honolulu – we discovered a hidden gem – a secluded beach cove that seemed to be untouched by the outside world. With camera and sunscreen in hand, we set out on a family adventure beach session that we won’t soon forget.

A famous movie scene

Halona Beach cove is recognizable for it’s famous beach scene in the movie “From Here To Eternity”. It’s been used in another popular film that you may recognize. A pretty cool spot for family adventure photos, don’t you think?

Scout the location

After researching this secluded beach cove spot online, I ventured out for a quick location scout to check the position of the sun. This helps me to decide how I can determine optimal lighting and timing for this family adventure session. I always want to make sure that I’m photographing in the most flattering light. This particular beach has a variety in height that includes tall cliff rocks, windy surf, and even caves to explore and duck away from the bright sun. It all perfectly compliments the serene beauty of the cove. The soothing sounds of the high surf waters was so relaxing – scroll down to see a sleepy baby.

An unforgettable experience

Capturing these family memories in Hawaii was such a rewarding experience for me. The colors, the sounds, and the chill atmosphere was a core memory that I hope to experience again.
