Morning Photos on the Beach in Maui
For families with young children, I often suggest morning photos on the beach in Maui as opposed to sunset photos. Children are happiest in the morning and because of the time difference, that 7 AM session time doesn’t really feel so early 🙂
I met with the W family early in the morning at Baldwin Beach in Paia. It’s my favorite beach on Maui and the perfect spot for morning photos in Maui. Whenever I am discussing morning locations with potential clients, I always direct them to Baldwin. The light quality is the best, there is so much diversity in one area, and the ocean is just so blue in the mornings!
This morning in particular was so gorgeous. There was a slight breeze so we didn’t sweat too much and the beach was almost completely empty. We spent some time in the forest and then made our way to the beach.
Little Kaedon was so curious about the rocks on the beach and the ocean in front of him. We had to really keep an eye on him because he would just run toward the waves!
My favorite part of this session, aside from Kaedon’s cuteness of course, was a sweet little friend we met on the beach: Harley the pig! Harley is a piglet that often visits Baldwin Beach with his human companion. He happily oinks down the shoreline as he chases after his owner. Luckily, Harley let us pet him and we got some pretty sweet pictures of the encounter! I tell ya, you never know what you’ll find on the North Shore. This town never ceases to surprise me!
To the W Family: thank you for allowing me to take these images of you and your family at Baldwin Beach. From Kaedon’s sweet smile to that funny little pig Harley, I’d say this session had everything morning photos on the beach in Maui should have!
