Pilialoha Photography
Island Inspired Imagery




Shena was in town visiting with her family and wanted some picturesque Hawaiian beach photos. We always love using the amazing diversity of coastlines that Hawaii is known for, and this shoot was no different. Just a short drive from downtown lies one of our favorite sunset-watching beaches which lacks the crowds of Waikiki, making portrait sessions much more enjoyable for everyone. Sailboats pass in the distance and surfers take turns on the large swells. The dramatic cliffs disintegrate into a narrow sand stretch, flanked by tide pools and rocky outcroppings. Shena showcased her beach-side self and wasn't afraid to get some of those more difficult shots in the waves. Her tattoos made for some unique detail shots, adding to the fierceness of her serious faces.
