These three were such a sweet little family! We shot a sunset session at a remote beach right outside of Waikiki. Mom wanted the brilliant yet soft colors of a Hawaiian evening, and it certainly delivered. Mom and Dad wanted this photography session to be a celebration of this season in life. I just love that! Celebrating the present moment. Plus, it happened to be a milestone birthday for Mom as well, so it was extra special for her.
As is typical when documenting toddlers, their energy level wavers throughout the session. Their little boy started off with a lot of energy, but then he got sleepy towards the middle of the session, so Mom and Dad gave him lots of cuddles. That happened to be perfect for me because I love capturing these tender moments. Then towards the end of the session, he was back with a burst of energy and ready to be back in front of the camera. We just went with the flow and followed his lead. When he was awake, this little boy was all smiles and full of laughter! He brought so much life and joy to the session, and I know that is exactly what he brings to his parents as well.
This sweet family loved on each other throughout the entire session. I was able to capture so many different relationships within this tight knit family: mom and son, dad and son, mom and dad, and the entire family. It was such a joy to be able to see all the different dynamics within this family and capture some wonderful moments of them for them to treasure for years to come.
