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! :)
Jenny & Reed | Kauai Elopement Wedding
Jenny and Reed elope at the intimate, gorgeous Keiki Cove on the South Side of Kauai! This beach is not only the perfect spot for an elopement wedding, but this is a special beach to them because this is where Reed proposed several years back! Jenny's flowing Show Me Your MuMu dress was perfect with the glowing sunset lighting! Jenny also ordered her adorable golden floral crown and succulent bouquet and boutonniere from the sweet Etsy shop Eucca! Can anyone else say.. perfect wedding? Mahalo Jenny and Reed for having me capture your special evening!
My youngest son and I took a lil beach day down to Anini Beach. What an amazing day! My son cracks me up! So many expressions.. this boy melts my lil heart! LOVE!
