Kauai Family Photography – Anini Beach
The conversations with the Langstons made this a memorable session for me. It felt comfortable, it felt like family. They were happy to be here, excited about Kauai and that made a comfortable atmosphere for the Kauai Family Portrait Session. It is always a little awkward with families as we get to know each other in a matter of minutes. But this was smooth, easy.
Sometimes a big sunset calls for a big light. No doubt about it. There was something about this evening in particular that screamed BIG LIGHT to me. So I obliged. There are so many flash at sunset photos on the beach by Hawaii portrait photographers that I feel if I am going to take that approach for a session, I need to make it count. Once a direction is decided, I go with it. Hang out and trust it for a while to see where it takes me. I love the creative possibilities within a single set up.
And it paid off with lasting memories of the session, both the photographs and our conversations. It is always a treat to hear a family having a great time during their stay. Especially when they want to know more about Kauai, about what it is like to live here. There are so many layers to the beauty on Kauai that go beyond a sunset. But the sunset is one of the best ways to shock your system with a good dose of gorgeous Kauai.
