I enjoyed photographing this maternity session for first-time expecting parents, S + R! Going for a non-beach look, S loved the botanical garden over at Kaneohe and chose it as her location of choice.
The weather is always overcast there since it’s tucked into the mountains but wow, the views are stunning! I had the best time photographing a beautiful couple and taking in the wonderful landscape!
How fun was this session?! The C Family flies in from New Zealand every year to vacation in the summer. Mom had questions about where the stunted palm trees were so I did some researching and found them over at the beach by The Kahala Resort in Waialae. The trees made for a super fun session and the adorable funny children made my evening!
This lovely extended family session was held over at Kawela Bay. Tucked away and hidden within Turtle Bay Resort, Kawela is full of amazing and majestic banyan trees! Krista + family were visiting from Virginia and they previously lived on Oahu when her dad was stationed at Schofield Barracks (which is close to the North Shore). She wanted something around NS since it brought back fond memories and I suggested Kawela for its unique beauty.
Their session was full of amazing light, laughs, and you can tell they’re a close-knit family! Thank you Krista for choosing me to photograph your family during your vacation!
