This gorgeous family came to Honolulu all the way from San Francisco to celebrate Mom’s 40th birthday! Mom’s sister happens to be a professional photographer, and she gifted this session to her sister for her 40th birthday celebration. This was one of the most fun family photography sessions I’ve shot. They were absolutely wonderful at being in the moment and cherishing this time together.
If there is anything that this family loves more than just dancing around with one another, it is laughing with one another. This photo shoot was full of capturing little moments just like that shared with one another. Whether it was Mom and Dad snagging a moment alone to dance with the waves crashing upon their feet or their daughters twirling each other around, someone was always dancing. And it seemed like this is what would be happening whether I was there taking photographs or not! They love each other big. I absolutely love the photo of Mom and Dad dancing with Sisters dancing to the side of them. I can only imagine how many dance nights they have back home in their living room.
These little girls felt right at home on the beaches of Hawaii. They took to playing in the sand, roaming in the lush forest, and wearing the local flowers like they had been doing it their whole little lives. And my goodness are they photogenic! They were so comfortable in front of the camera, which can sometimes be a struggle with little ones. But not these two! They loved posing for me and enjoyed the spotlight, but they loved sharing the spotlight with one another more. I could see how tight of a bond these sisters have. They had so much fun picking flowers with each other. Big Sister put one in Little Sisters hair, and I could see how much she looks up to her. It was like Big Sister hung the moon.
