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.
