Lightness Photography is Hawaii's leading Kauai Family Photographer. Family & Couples portrait sessions are outdoors on location, typically at the beach or a local park but can be done at nearly any Kauai hotel resort or secluded beach. Kauai, Maui, Oahu and all the Hawaii Islands have stunningly gorgeous beaches and sunsets for one of a kind, gallery-art family portraits. And families of all sizes and ages are welcome, from the grandparents to the youngest kids.

A Kauai family portrait session can be held almost anywhere, from nearby parks to deserted, off-the-beaten-path beaches and we will happily recommend a locations that fits your needs and desires. Family beach photography in Kauai can be anytime of day, from sunrise to sunset, though morning is often best for families with very young kids.

We love to craft those "Wow!" portraits that you can't wait to hang on your living room wall.

After The Session
After your session, your Kauai couples photographer will lightly edit all your images for maximum beauty and then upload them to an online gallery for viewing and print ordering. We will then email you the gallery link so you'll be able to view and share your beautiful Hawaii photos and select your prints. Once you've decided on the prints and sizes you'd like to order, we will do a final touch up edit on your selected images before sending them to the print lab.

"Our extended family of 20 people traveled from Utah to vacation in Hawaii. While we were there we wanted family pictures on the beach. Brett was amazing!! He was prompt in his communication before the shoot, he was on time, knew right where to go for the best backdrop, patient with all the little kids we had and was very professional. He was fun, kept the little kids excited and got them to smile. He was kind and we all felt very comfortable. We will definitely use Lightness Photography again. Thank you, Brett, for an amazing experience!" -Maxfield Family
