Couples Portrait Photography: Kamaole III Beach Park at Sunset

Kamaole III Beach Park at sunset can be spectacular and a great place for couples, or family, portrait photography. The park itself, located in Kihei, Maui, is one of those community gems which offers a world-class beach, with lava rock outcroppings, a child’s playground, barbecue pits, picnic tables, restrooms, showers, a stand of ironwood trees, palm trees, a large grassy expanse and even recycling trash bins.The park is an ideal setting for natural, outdoor portrait photography as the park setting presents some very nice areas and the beach, of course, especially during sunset, offers a spectacular backdrop for portrait photography.

Manas and Ruby, both medical doctors from Illinois, he completing his residency in neurology and she practicing family medicine, decided that their last day in Maui deserved some special portraits as they have had none taken since their wedding a few years ago. What better place than a world-class beach at sunset on this romantic isle of Maui!

Family Pictures & Senior Portraits on Maui

Family pictures & senior portraits on Maui can happen at the same time. If you are here on Maui as a family, and one, or more, of the children are going to be seniors within the year, it’s easy to capture a few images that are appropriate for senior pictures. Today, senior pictures are more than the traditional headshot allowing for more envioromental images. And, what better place to include the environment, in both family pictures and senior portraits, than Maui!

Over 3 million high school students graduate each year in the United States. It’s one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences, or phases, or rituals. It’s a benchmark. A milestone. An achievement. There are other milestones and benchmarks yet ahead, as there have been all along. They each call out for something by which to be remembered, to be chronicled. Senior portraits make up a part of that chronicle, that time, that transition into a larger world. For some, leaving home is immanent; away to college or an apprenticeship; perhaps military or non-profit service somewhere away from  home. Sooner or later, we all leave home, kind of. We carry within our memories, our land, our place…our home, that was, and even still is; and in our hearts, our home, our place, our life,  yet to be.
