Fall 2016 Mini Session Details and a GIVEAWAY! – Honolulu, Hawaii | Oahu Family Photographer

It’s Mini Session time…

Wow, I can’t believe the day is finally here! I know I’ve been talking about my FIRST ever Mini Session event here on Oahu for a few months now and it has been such a fun process planning everything. Keep reading and you’ll see that I’ll be going into the details about dates, time slots, and of course the GIVEAWAY, woo hoo!

First and most important, WHEN and WHERE will these mini sessions be held?

I’ve done a lot of research these past few months on determining the best location to hold a session marathon and the factors that contributed were:

Location: The area NEEDED to have a variety of settings for those who wanted beach, mountains, forest, or a combination of three and for those settings to be close to each other due to the session time.

Quality of Light: This happened to be the most important factor! The light had to be outstanding during early evening hours right until the sun went down. What better location than one on the Windward side?!

Accessibility:  Planning and preparing for a session is already stressful enough, I had to make sure this area would could be easily accessed via a Google or Apple Maps pin and there wouldn’t be any strenuous walking or hiking.

The BEST and extremely beautiful location I will be using to host my Fall 2016 Mini Sessions will be at Bellows Beach Park – Public Side! It’s PERFECT for all genres from families to children and the water + sand looks beautiful while giving those who want more of a non-beach look access to the forested area. Here are a few images from the area I plan to hold the sessions:
