Tender Hearts | Photographers in Ko Olina
This sweet family of three came to Ko Olina from Washington D.C. These young parents are such sweet and tender caretakers of their daughter. They share such a gentle love with their precious toddler. I loved seeing them dote on her as only first time parents do. They love watching her play and be curious and grow and learn. It seemed like it was their first vacation to the beach, so there was so much that was new to all three of them.
Mom and Dad wanted to have a simple and laid back photography shoot. They knew that in the simplicity of it all, they would get great moments captured and be able to enjoy the experience of the photo shoot as well. They started out taking pictures with the wildflowers among the rocks near the shore. Their daughter loved picking the flowers and giving them to Mom. We then headed down to the water to hang out on the beach to take pictures. They found some great rocks near the shoreline to sit for a few moments, and I got some great pictures of them relaxing together.
Their daughter was ready to play in the sand, and she could not get enough of it. She wanted to bury herself in it, but Mom was able to convince her otherwise. Mom and Dad got right down in the sand with her! It made me think about how they must get down on the floor and play with her and her toys back home. They are such energetic, young parents. They laughed and giggled along with their daughter. They foster such a carefree atmosphere in which their daughter can play and be curious.
My favorite picture is of the three of them walking hand in hand towards the water, as if they are walking hand in hand into their next big adventure.
