When you live on the most beautiful place on earth, scouting for photoshoot locations comes easy as pie. Anini Beach has become one of my favorite go-to locations for shooting family portraits because of it's tranquil shoreline. The beach is protected by Hawaii's largest reefs, which makes it a perfect location for families to feel safe and allows them to get their toes wet as I capture their intimate family moments. Below is a beautiful morning summer session with the Avilla Family.
Oahu | I recently jumped on a plane for a quick trip to Oahu to shower one of my best friends who is pregnant with her second baby! We started our day with an elegant maternity photo session at her local beach with her gorgeous family! All I can say is, WOW! Susie, you are a beautiful mama!! Not only that but it was a gorgeous, sunny morning and her almost-two-year-old was as happy as punch, so our session was literately amazing!! I couldn’t be happier for Susie, who is expecting a baby girl and who is recently engaged to her long-time love, Robert! What a gorgeous, beach-loving family! Their beaming love for one another is so evident in these photos, that I can’t help from smiling myself! Congratulations Susie, Robert & Zeke! We can’t wait to meet Baby Girl!
Saisha & Ben | Expecting a Baby!
My lovely friend and assistant photographer, Saisha, is expecting a baby girl! I was so thrilled to do a maternity shoot for her at Moloa'a Bay with her Aussie sweetheart, Ben. What an extraordinarily beautiful couple! These two are going to have so much fun raising their baby girl to love the land, ocean, music and art.. just as they do! What a special shoot! Congratulations Saisha & Ben! :)
