Hire a Kauai Photographer for a Mini Session or Family Photography in Hawaii
Why not take advantage of a birthday, anniversary, vacation, or multigenerational reunion to capture authentic memories with a Kauai family photographer? It’s a great way to get everyone together in one photo while capturing the essence of what makes your family so special.
However, finding the perfect family photographer is a lot easier said than done. It also doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. There are some amazing professionals with affordable Kauai mini photo session packages… but you have to know where to look! With so many out there to choose from, we’d like to give you some tips to help you prepare for your family photoshoot for some stellar portraits.
Best Kauai Photoshoot Spots
Close your eyes and imagine your perfect family mini session in Kauai. Where is it?
Getting some ideas on the best photo spots in Kauai can be as simple as viewing a photographer’s portfolio or asking the photographer where they like to shoot. Browse their work to get a good indication of where past shoots have taken place. Some outdoor locations will require an entrance fee or parking fees, so it is good to be prepared to cover these costs for your photographer.
There are so many beautiful outdoor locations to choose between – from lush botanical gardens to epic viewpoints. Have some ideas of the kinds of locations you like and ask your photographer for recommendations for locations.
Things to Consider Before Booking a Kauai Mini Session
You likely have some ideas on how you want your photos to look, and you might even have some locations or outfit ideas in mind. That’s great! Thinking more about these details before setting out on your search is key to making sure you hire the right Kauai portrait photographer for you.
When is the Best Time?
Equally important to the location of your shoot is to make sure your shoot is at the perfect time! Without a doubt, the best time to take photos in Kauai is in the early morning or early evening.
Check out our golden hour calculator to see the best times for a photoshoot anywhere in the world. We are partial to the early mornings between 7:30 am and 8:30 am because the whole family starts fresh and there is less chance of other people or tourists around interrupting your beautiful photo backdrop. Although it may be a little hard to wake up the kids, it is totally worth it.
How You Will Use Your Family Photos
How will you use or display your family photos? Will they be arranged into a photo book, shown off in your home on a gallery wall, or printed on a coffee mug? The size and quality of the photos will matter, so make sure your photographer delivers photos in a high-resolution digital format so that they can be printed or shared in many places via multiple methods.
Find Your Photoshoot Style
Every artist has a signature style. This is why it is super important to find a Kauai photographer that matches your vision and captures your family in a way that feels authentic to you.
- How much direction would you like? Do you like candid moments or perfectly positioned photos?
- Do you like coordinating outfits for family photos or loosely decided color schemes?
- Which style do you like? Soft and warm or photos with artistic positioning and bright colors?
