Mauna Lani Family Vacation – Big Island Hawaii Photographer

Parents: don’t be upset when your littles meet a photographer and don’t take to them right away. Kids move at their own pace. They take to strangers in different ways. I’m never offended and whenever I have little ones who I can tell need more time to get used to me, I always go at their pace. I believe in family-led posing. I always say that it’s more important to give kids a break and let them go run around for a few minutes than force them to take one picture that will only make them hate me for the rest of our time together! They are in charge – we aren’t!

These beautiful girls each took to me in their own time. Big sister was loving, giggly and warmed right up to me. Little E needed more time, and we gave it to her. You can see that by the end she was alllll smiles. Enough mama smooches and that is bound to happen :)! Every child is different and honestly, that is what makes this job so fun!

Thank you so much to this wonderful family for letting me capture your family vacation to Hawaii! I am so grateful to have met you all and I hope to see you on the Big Island again soon. xo
