Last weekend I got to photograph a beautiful family. I attend church with one of their daughters and she set up a family shoot for them for a Mother’s day gift. While we were shooting Mrs. H said that her granddaughter had given her a picture frame and said that it was for them to put pictures in. While talking with the family they said they haven’t had family photos since their youngest was 2! You couldn’t tell it though. They all posed so naturally! They told me family photos were always stressful for them and that is why they rarely did them. As a photographer that breaks my heart because a photo session should not be stressful. It should be a fun time to cut loose and be you. I like to make my sessions fun and stress free. If I leave the session with my abs hurting from laughing so much it was indeed a GREAT session.
It’s always nice to be able to photograph a couple that has so much love for each other. When you have a family that shows the amount of love for each other by just looking at them it is even more incredible. Mr. and Mrs. H have been married for almost 29 years and have 4 beautiful children. The look in their eyes and on their faces when looking at each other showed so much love! I am sure they are more in love than they were on their wedding day! I am so happy that I was able to capture some family photos for them while they were visiting family and friends in Hawaii.
In Hawaii you never know when it is going to rain. We had to reschedule the session because of rain several days earlier. I was so happy when I got to the location and it was bright and sunny! The sunset was beautiful! I couldn’t have asked God to give us a better one! We did have to fight with the king’s tide being in and running from the water! I went home with water up to mid-calf and sand in my pant legs. It was an absolute great time! I was so lucky to be able to capture this beautiful couple and their youngest daughter.
I had a hard time picking out my favorite photos from the session. They were all so amazing. Here are a few of the ones the family received.
