Facing the Future: Hawaii Family Portraits

I just had to share this awesome sunset family portrait session. Sheena, a friend and fellow photographer, is relocating to the East Coast in a few weeks. When she told me she’d never had her family photographed professionally, I knew we had to do something extra special. She had some fantastic ideas for her session and I hope I did them justice.

I first photographed the littlest Bean just before his first birthday. He’s grown into such a handsome and curious little boy!

Both Sheena and her husband are avid surfers, and this what Sheena’s idea. No toddlers were harmed in the making of this photo :-)

And last, but certainly not least.. my favorite photograph from the session, and one of my all-time favorite family portraits. Sheena’s specialty is silhouette photographs, so it was important to her to have one of her family. I was more than happy to oblige!

Sheena, I wish you and your family all the best now and always! You will be missed.

Little Love: Hawaii Newborn Photography

This sweet big sister is so proud of her new baby sister.

Mom is a nurse and postpartum doula. She was glowing with love for her new baby girl, and it’s plain to see baby adores being held and snuggled in mama’s arms.

Despite being up most of the night before with the beginnings of a cold, this sweet girl was so sleepy and posed perfectly.

The chub, the wrinkles, those pouty lips- it’s cuteness overload!

Thank you, C family, for welcoming me into your home. It was a pleasure meeting your new addition!
