It was this Arizona family’s first trip to Hawaii (and their first Maui family portraits at the Wailea Beach Villas). The beautiful property quickly became their home away from home. The boys had a whole extra bedroom to themselves, but chose instead to camp out on the sofa bed together all week (I love that!). They snorkeled. Body surfed. Jumped between the pool and the ocean. And surviving one rogue jellyfish sting. It was clear by the looks on their faces when I arrived: Maui had shown them a great time.
I had the pleasure of photographing them on the last night of their trip. We started off in the lush, tropical greenery of the resort grounds. We ended with our feet in the ocean as their last Maui sunset dipped beneath the horizon. I just love getting the more formal portraits out of the way, and watching personalities come out once it’s time to goof around. And I especially love photographing siblings together. Making each other laugh. And just flat out being silly.
Thanks boys for being so much fun to photograph.
