The C Family – Maui Mini Session Sugar Beach

There are so many benefits to having a Maui Mini Session photoshoot during your vacation! They are short and sweet and super fun, making them perfect for anyone who might have short attention spans or might not want or need a full hour of photography.

We had a blast with this family the other morning at Sugar Beach during their sunrise session. They were so loving and we enjoyed capturing them play and splash together. The images came out great and they are the perfect way to remind them of their Maui vacation!

The entire family enjoyed the shoot! Tenessa was amazing and provided such a variety of shots. I really appreciated that she remembered the kids names too. That really helped with positioning them.


We can’t get enough of this dreamy color palette! The different shades of pink are so beautiful against the ocean’s blue hue and the morning clouds’ gentle colors. It’s perfect for a summertime photoshoot! The colors are summery and romantic, and we can’t help but swoon over every image.

Mom was kind enough to reply to our questionnaire and we are so excited to share her answers with you!

What made you decide this was the time to do a photo session? This was a family vacation far from home and we often don’t have the chance to go on vacations like this. These pictures are to help make this vacation memorable.
What did you love about the location of our session? My utmost favorite part of Maui are the cloud-coated mountains and the location had them included! I was very appreciative and in awe. So breathtaking!
What was your favorite part of your session? It was fun! We got to jump, splash, run, and get wet!
Was there anything you were nervous or worried about before the session? The wind! LOL! No lie about Maui winds averaging like 24MPH.
Any advice to others before their photo sessions?Lacker your hair with Hairspray LOL
What made you choose Mariah Milan Photographers? You all look like a fun group and each album looked personable.
What do you hope your kids/family will say years down the road when looking at these images? 
“That was fun, huh mom?”
