Family  photo sessions, are a great way to document a milestone for your baby (with family), document your family trip to Hawaii, or to simply get updated family photos at any point throughout the year. Our family sessions are relaxed, fun, and intended to show the connection between family members. If you have any shots that are a priority you will include that information on your questionnaire. If you are doing a session on Maui, you will work with an associate photographer (unless Marissa is in town) who is very skilled with working with kids, large families, etc. All images are edited by Marissa. All Oahu sessions are fulfilled by Marissa.


If you're nervous about doing family photos it is totally normal! However, you won't need to worry too much. Your photographer will provide you with prompts to help you naturally engage, and let you know if you need to move your hair, or put your hand in your pocket, so you won't need to think too much. Just have fun and be present with your family.

Where will the session take place?

Your session will take place around sunrise or sunset for outdoor locations. For a regular family session, we will have around 60 minutes together and you will select just 1 location together with your Marissa from the locations she recommends. We don't recommend 2 locations or outfit changes as this takes away time that we could be spending taking photos.


Best time to book?

Book sooner rather than later (except for Oahu sessions which can be scheduled 2 weeks in advance). However, if it is a last minute session and we have availability we may be able to get you in, so please do not hesitate to contact us!

What People are Saying

"I am so happy I got to work with Marissa!... Her suggestions and attention to little details to achieve a beautiful shoot is impeccable. She is also a mother to a toddler so she understands how to work with them which is also a bonus. Her editing is perfect, I got comments where some of the photos should belong in a magazine and I agree!"

We had a family shoot with Marissa. She arranged everything from floral headbands to co—ordinating outfits. As a blogger with over 145k followers, these photos were some of the most successful we ever posted and we cherish them as a family. They were so beautifully curated.

We were so happy with the photos from our mini-session in Honolulu, Hawaii that we decided to purchase the whole gallery! Marissa was easy to communicate with, she was familiar with the locations to shoot at, and she also helped with our wardrobe styling. It was great to work with her, especially with having a baby and toddler in the session..."
