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.

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!

MacNeil Family Vacation Photography at Hoʻomaluhia Botanical Gardens

The MacNeil's were excited to have their photos taken off the beach, somewhere fun that showcases a different side of Hawaiʻi. So I suggested one of my favorite spots in Kāneʻohe, a lush, green botanical garden with stunning views of the Koʻolau Mountains.

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.

Admani Couple Portrait at Ala Moana Beach Park

Ala Moana Beach Park, Honolulu

Shehla and Sohail were in Hawaiʻi on their one year anniversary and were looking for something special to remember their time in paradise.

Sunset photos on the beach.

They were looking for something a little more intimate and romantic, and as luck would have it the beach was empty. Only a couple fishermen along the seawall and another couple on one end taking photos. The rain earlier in the day had chased away the crowds and the cloudy sky left over from the storm earlier painted the sky with the most gorgeous sunset I have seen. We just took advantage of the moment and snapped some beautiful photos of this stunning couple. I don't think I have ever had such an amazing opportunity at one of Oʻahu's busiest beaches.

VanZant Couple Portrait at Ala Moana Beach Park

Ala Moana Beach Park, Honolulu 

First time visiting Hawaiʻi? What better way to remember such an amazing vacation than a fun photo session on the beach.

Karin reached out a couple months ago to set up a time for photos with her husband, and I was excited to recommend a few great ideas for their photo session. Karin and her husband Nathan were so cute together. They are the type of couple that naturally has fun together and truly love each other - which makes my job easy. Just see for yourself
