Fun family session on the Southside of Kauai, Hawaii

Updated: May 27, 2020

I had the pleasure of connecting with and photographing this sweet family of three on Kauai at the end of 2019. More & more I find the early morning sessions to be my favorite as the light is so soft, the beaches are empty and we can get out while its still cool. We met up at the Beach right in front of the Grand Hyatt in Poipu. This beach is packed at sunset but, in the morning there was only one big Hawaiian monk seal resting in the sand.

We explored along the coast and played in the sand, found logs to climb on and flowers to smell. We talked about life and love and what it is like to create a family with your beloved. I was so inspired by their connection and love for each other and their little boy. We watched the surfers playing in the morning waves as we walked the beach.

Fully taking in the preciousness of this beautiful island.

So loved getting to capture this special time away from the Mainland routine for this family.

The main focus of my work is telling the story of the wildly in love.

Whether that means you're freshly in love or you have been married over 20 years. We're all in different stages of our journey and they are all so beautiful & absolutely worth documenting.
