The Session That Almost Wasn’t | Maluaka Beach Photographer

Maluaka Beach Maui Photographer

We had a back and forth email conversation for a last minute mini session for this sweet family. While I normally don’t offer sunset mini sessions, I had mornings full of dentist appointments and we agreed that a sunset would work after all. We confirmed our meeting place and I arrived early and waited, and waited, and waited. It turns out they had arrived early as well – though to a completely different spot. The hotel had given them wrong directions. When they arrived to Maluaka Beach, the sunset was almost over.

This has got to be one of the fastest sessions that I’ve ever done – about 15 minutes! – and I can’t imagine a better family to have this lightning quick session with. Baby Taliah was AMAZING. Not only were these three super sweet, but Maui must have known how much we wanted this session to work out because we were graced with the most amazing post-sunset pink light ever. The ocean was literally pink. I’m so glad that it worked out!
