I don’t get the chance to take on a lot of Senior photos, which is such a bummer because they are so FUN!
Hard to believe how time flies but I’ve known Hiilei since she was a baby! I remember being in High School preparing for our May Day performance as a freshman and her mom, who is one of my most beloved hula aunties, bringing her new baby girl in as we all prepared for our hula. How was that almost 18 years ago?!
When mom reached out to ask if I’d fly back to Oahu to take her baby girls High School senior photos you know I did not hesitate for even one second!
We worked hard to find a location that had both stunning greenery and a gorgeous beach. Kahana Bay did not disappoint! If I’m being honest, I had never been here before. I spent so many summer weekends as a kid growing up on Oahu driving around the island with my girlfriends looking for hidden beach spots and I’m shocked that we never once stumbled onto this place. It is freaking gorgeous! Hiilei and I had so much room to play and give each of her outfits a chance to shine against a different backdrop. Seriously – working with teenagers makes me feel so young again!
By the way – my trick to getting people to let loose during a session? A tiny bluetooth speaker, Spotify and whatever kind of tunes you like to jam to!
Are you planning a family vacation to the Big Island of Hawaii? Let me capture your family visit to Hawaii with a stunning sunrise or sunset photo session on one of the beautiful beaches in on the island. I’d love to capture memories you’ll cherish forever!
