Hampton Family Reunion on the Beach in Hawaii

Family flew in for the holidays from all around the world and Shar wanted to gift her in-laws with the perfect way to remember this special occasion. Family photos on the beach. But don’t let the classic white on blue jeans look fool you. Genuine and goofy are a couple words that come to mind when I look back at this extended family.

Marstaller Family Portrait in Waʻahila Ridge

It’s that time of the year. Time for family Christmas photos. With an abundance of beaches and tropical settings for photos, we wanted to get away from the Hawaiian norm and have these photos taken in a more woodland setting. After a quick drive up the mountains, we set up in a forest of Cook Pine Trees for these Christmas photos.

70th Birthday Party On Top of Waikiki

Altitude 37 at Hilton Waikīkī Beach, Waikīkī

Family from around the world flew in to celebrate Micky’s 70th birthday. Micky’s daughter, Preet, had arranged for their festivities to take place on the top of Waikīkī in the Altitude 37 lounge at Hilton Waikīkī Beach Hotel. The venue was perfect for their party. The lounge was small enough for their intimate party with enough space for the dancing and singing that would take place at the end of the night. And that view - the sun setting over the Waikīkī skyline. This family knows how to party and we had a great time celebrating with everyone. Congratulations Micky on your 70th birthday. We wish you many more years of happiness, singing, and dancing.

Kimura Family Vacation Portraits at Waiʻalae Beach Park

Waiʻalae Beach Park, Waiʻalae

How cute is this family? These two little girls were adorable and had so much fun at the beach. Maybe a little too much fun. Little ones can be tricky to photograph, as any parent can attest to. My secret - just have fun. When everyone is laughing and having a good time, we can throw out the “cheese” because we all have our natural beautiful smiles on. And if you dress up your daughters in cute clothes like this, then our photos will turn out even better!

Pham | Sunrise Vow Renewal Ceremony on the Beach

Waimānalo Beach, Waimānalo

Chris lived in Hawaiʻi many years ago, and as he returned with his family for their summer vacation it was only fitting for him to renew their wedding vows at a place he once called home. The beach along Waimānalo Bay always was a special place, especially when the sun rises and illuminates the mountains from Makapuʻu to Kailua. Everything about this beach is beautiful and served for the perfect location for their romantic wedding vow renewals. 

Beattie Family Newborn Portrait with Baby Jason

Baby Jason was born June 8, 2018 and welcomed home by a loving family. Big sister, Gracelynn and big brother, Daniel were ready and waiting to smother their new baby brother with hugs and kisses. There is so much love in this family that it is obvious to see in every photo. Moments like these are so special and I am so blessed to be able to capture these newborn moments forever.

Ramirez Family Vacation Photography at Ko Olina

Ko Olina, Honouliuli

 

14 family members on a family vacation to Hawaiʻi is not an easy task, but Leslie managed to coordinate everyone's schedule for a fun family photo session on the beach. Grandparents with the little ones. Siblings having fun on the beach. Young love with growing families. Every little moment and everything in between. 

I've been back to this same spot a few times over the past couple of months, not only because it is a secluded beach location, or that it is conveniently located close to the Ko Olina Resorts, but because it is a beautiful spot with the Waiʻanae Coast in the background.
