Crisp white takes center stage with this family session. I absolutely love how light and airy the overall vibe is and the bright whites are balanced with the beautiful green mountains and beige sand from Makua Beach, in Waialua, Oahu.
The Obukhovskiy (had to triple check the spelling) family came all the way from Alaska to spend a few weeks in Hawaii, and what a better memory then a sunrise family session! They chose Makua Beach for the beautiful background it offers and I agree that it was a perfect choice! Sunrise there is just gorgeous, and it’s pretty secluded as well, which makes it even better!
I don’t just do all “look at the camera and smile”. As your photographer I want to make your session fun – To document the giggles and to simply document family! When shooting my families, I do some posing, but also focus on letting the kids be kids. That means if they want to run around a little, play with the leaves, or even tackle dad, I let them! This lets me capture your family in the most perfect moment – when you are all comfortable and being yourselves. The best pictures happen when the kids can just be themselves and have fun exploring!
I also make sure to get a few parent portraits. So often, the shoot is focused on the kids, so I always want to make sure my families get some parent portraits to keep! These always become so treasured. Family sessions are always so sweet and fun to shoot. I love getting to watch kids enjoy themselves and see how families interact with each other. It’s a wonderful experience. If you’re looking for your own family session, so you can hold on to some wonderful memories, reach out! I would LOVE to be a part of it.
