Matt had his senior photos taken on the Kohala Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii. His family decided to have the shoot in the morning. Morning light is a great choice for portraits; you get deep blues and rich greens in the backgrounds and it is not too hot earlier in the morning. Try to avoid afternoon for a portrait in that the sun is harsher and the light not as soft and flattering.
As with all my portraits we walked around the grounds offering a variety of backgrounds and different poses.
