Waikiki Family Beach Photography

Oahu Family Beach & Sunset Portrait Photography

Family beach sessions are outdoors on location, at the beach or a local park, and vary in time from half an hour for families on a budget to several hours for large families or clients wanting the most creative, gorgeous portraits Hawaii nature has to offer. Families large or small are welcome, from the grandparents to the youngest kids and children. For more examples of our Waikiki Oahu family and children beach photography, please see the Galleries page.

Honestly, photographers don’t come better than Bodhi, PERIOD. My family loves destination photography. We have handpicked photographers in London, Rome, Paris, Maui, and Honolulu. There were some really bad experiences, some fairly good ones and then there is EXTRAORDINARY BODHI. He is pleasant, hardworking (puts in a lot of effort to try out different settings and techniques throughout the session), amazing with young/difficult children and the results are SO good. He turns the photos around in one tenth of the time compared to other photographers bc his techniques are so good that very little post editing is required.

I recommend him to all my friends and family and they always come back thanking me profusely for the pleasant experiences and breathtaking images that Bodhi gave them. - Jennifer L.

Creative & Gorgeous Waikiki Family Beach & Sunset Photography

Family photo locations can be almost anywhere, from Waikiki beaches to deserted, off-the-beaten-path beaches and Bodhi will happily recommend several according to your needs and desires. Recommended time of day for family beach photography is early morning or late afternoon for the softest, warmest light, however, sessions can be mid-day as well.

To reserve an Oahu family beach photography session, a deposit of $250 is required and is refundable if canceled more than 72 hours before your session. Refunds are NOT given for anything beyond Bodhi's personal control - like weather, wind, sunburns, rain, wet clothes, etc. Rescheduling due to weather is at the discretion of Bodhi*.

Within a few days of your family beach & sunset photo shoot, your images will be uploaded to an online gallery for viewing and downloading. If you have made your final session payment, you will be able to immediately download the full resolution digital images of your package directly to your computer. High quality prints, enlargements and additional products such as collages and photo books are available for purchase right from your online gallery as well.

    Mahalo! (Thank you)
Bodhi was absolutely fantastic! We had a family photo of 20+ people. Bodhi was very professional and very genuine. We had multiple toddlers and infants and he made sure to communicate his process to guarantee the best outcome of photos. He has a great personality and was able to keep the attention of all of our small children. He had great ideas of what would make the picture pop, with colors and time of day and positions on location. His knowledge of the environment and professionalism really stood out. He was not pushy or rude and you could tell he wanted the best for our family. We will be using him again in the future for sure! Thanks again Bodhi! - the Ackerman Family
