2013 – Family Portrait of the Year

Maui family portrait

Yeah, hard to choose one family portrait image in a year of many stand out images in many collections of a Maui family portrait session. This image was actually two families, close friends, visiting Maui form the mainland. Everybody was happy, and the sunset sky was on fire. A lot of factors go into a good image; location, of course, attitude, apparel, stance, posture, gaze. But, what might make a good image a stand out image is the atmosphere of the location, which is often dependent upon weather and time. Half an hour earlier, or later, and this image may not have made the cut. If the clouds were more, or less, prevalent, it might not have made the cut. But, many of the factors were present, and so here we have 2013 Maui Family Portrait of the Year. 


 

The 2009 Maui Family Portrait Choice

Every photo shoot session with a family yields several hundred images; of those images, well over several dozen are selected and edited to be part of the final collection. With over 12 families to choose from during 2009, there are some difficult choices as to which one I personally find the best. The below picture struck me as different because of the attire. Although many families will color coordinate their attire, very few dawn matching outfits. So, here we have the 2009 Maui Family Portrait choice…..
