One of my favorite things is seeing families travel together. Setting aside work and schedules and life to come together for a few days to just be together is so special.
This family came to Maui to celebrate their matriarch’s 60th birthday, and her sons surprised her with an extended family photo shoot. We met in Lahaina, and started shooting a safe distance away from the beach. It was mostly because the sunlight was still a little bit harsh, so we began in the shade. They ended up being the only dry photos of the session!
The second we made our way over to the water, the kids went in head-first. Jumping and splashing and playing and having the greatest time. And the best part about it? The parents rolled with it! They jumped right in with them, making for some really fun, genuine, candid photographs. The very best kind, in my opinion.
