Maui Family Photography

Welcome to Capture Aloha’s Family Photo Gallery! As Family Photographers in Maui, we love capturing the very essence of your family on film and providing your home with a loving memory. Whether you are visiting the island, plan to visit in the near future or live here locally, we encourage you to scroll down and review a selection of family photos in Maui that we have taken and imagine your own family in those photos.

We promise to deliver amazing images and a top-notch experience with us. If that connects with you, please feel free to contact us with any questions or for a free consultation, or you can book us today here.

Our photographic style would be described as colorful lifestyle photography. We love bright and saturated colors and crisp contrasty black and whites. In some cases an overcast day can cause colors to be muted somewhat, but even though we cannot control the weather, we will continue to capture “fun,” “real” and “posed” shots of your family. We love to capture real connections as well as nice family photos where everyone is looking.

Speaking of the weather, we can almost promise there will be wind, and that’s ok because the island’s tradewinds is what makes Maui a beautiful place to live and visit. And if it’s windy, your hair is going to get messy. But our experience will help you get through it and for us, it is the beautiful part of the “experience.”

Providing family portraits, regardless of whether or not we are photographing a full family portrait session, individual portraits, just the children, or senior/graduate portraits, we aim to always provide a special moment to be treasured.

For Family Portraits, we recommend having the sessions on the beach, either on the West Side or South Side of Maui. Beautiful sunsets, sunrises, tropical trees, the crashing of waves in the ocean and mountainous backdrops, we do everything we can to make your photos stand out full of bright colors and a lot of personality.

On the west side, we love Kapalua Beach, Ironwoods/Oneloa and DT Flemings. They are all very different beaches with different views and landscapes. On the south side, we recommend Po'olenalena Beach, Wailea Beach, Makena Surf and Maluaka Beach. When it comes to the island of Maui, the beaches on the west side and south side just can’t be beaten. And if the beach is not what you are looking for, we are also more than happy to come to your resort or condo to photograph you there as well!

When selecting the time of day for your family photo session, we recommend early morning or sunset as the best time of the day to shoot. We don't want harsh overhead light of midday and shadows. It's not flattering to the skin.

If you’re not sure about the attire you should consider for your session, it's always safe to go with solid colors because they photograph well. With bold patterns you run the risk of clothing being too distracting, so we recommend soft colors. Neutrals such as cream, white, light blues and greens, or soft pinks all photograph beautifully on a beach.

In addition, we love little props such as leis, hakus, or anything personal they would like to have as a remembrance in their shoot. Also, since we are in paradise, we prefer barefoot, so no need to stress about the proper footwear.

For our family photography services, we shoot:

25 images for a 30-minute session
50 images for a one-hour session
75 images for a 90-minute session

Pricing varies depending on the package you choose. Please visit our Portrait Pricing for package options.

It is our hope that after working with us, your experience is a memorable one.

Frequently Asked QuestionS

How do you deliver your images?

We deliver images digitally via Pixieset as most photographers do these days. It is an easy and efficient system to preview, favorite and receive your images.

What kind of camera (and other) equipment that you use?

We use All Canon cameras with a wide variety of Canon Lenses and off camera flash equipment. We will always have a backup camera just in case!

How much should someone spend on family photography?

On average, photography fees can swing wildly. From the time spent at the shoot, how many people are in the shoot, time editing to photoshop hours, and if you want drone or video footage can cause pricing to vary. Our family photography sessions typically start at about $400 and will go from there, again depending on all the options.

What should someone look for when choosing a good family photographer?

Review their Portfolio and look at their Instagram posts and Reviews! Look for consistency. Make sure you like their style, because there are many photographers with different styles to choose from. We are all a bit different, so choose the style you want your photos to look like. For example, if you like heavily photoshopped, or very bright or dark and moody images, then choose based on what you want your final product to look like based on their overall portfolio.

Do you offer Photoshop/Editing services?

Yes, we can absolutely provide Photoshop such as slimming, head swapping, etc. We edit each photo by hand and do not just use a "filter" like on Instagram so there is an additional fee based on how long each photo will take and what needs to be done. Our photoshop/editing prices are absolutely competitive with other family photographers.
