If you had to ask me what I love most about photography, it would be the ability to photograph everything and everyone. I don’t limit myself to one type of session. One of my favorite sessions has to be photographing families. The Banache family was no exception. Emma and Coulton were willing to be silly at any time, and were also great with their sweet twin baby sisters who were 6 months old! …… aren’t they just the cutest little things you have ever seen? I had a blast capturing the Banaches on their family vacation at the Mauna Lani Resort. Here are a few of my favorite shots!
Vacations in sunny Hawaii are the perfect time to schedule a family beach portrait session. I always LOVE photographing families at the beach! The sand and water create the perfect soft backdrop for portraits and it’s just a magical place to be. The weather for this session was bright and hot! But the children were such troopers and held out long enough for us to get some gorgeous photos of this stunning family. Thank you so much Lohse family for trusting me to capture your vacation memories! This session was photographed at the Mauna Kea Beach hotel, which is fronted by one of the best beaches on the island, Kauna’oa beach. The sand is a perfect crescent shape and extends for almost 1/4 mile so you get that gorgeous tropical turquoise color.
I photographed the Wall family during their stay at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai on the Big Island of Hawaii. Here is their sneak peek…
I was so excited when Morgan, my lighting assistant asked me to do a mother daughter photo session with her, her sister Sara and and her mom Cheri! The Taylor ladies are all beautiful and easy to photograph, very natural in front of the camera. We had the best time that day. It was so great to have a group of girls together with nothing but positive happy energy! After this shoot, I realized how awesome mother daughter photo sessions are. Years from now, when Morgan and Sara have left home or get married, Cheri will look back at these photos and always remember the day she and her daughter got glammed up for a photo shoot at Anaeho’omalu beach.
Thank you, lovely Taylor ladies, for making this shoot so amazing.
