Laura & Ben: St. Patty's Day Kailua Wedding

Laura and Ben got married on St. Patrick's Day at a private oceanfront estate on Kailua Beach, Oahu. Although the weather forecast called for heavy rain, the luck of the Irish prevailed and Laura and Ben had a beautiful outdoor wedding. The ceremony, which included a butterfly release, was attended by about 75 friends and family members. A festive St. Patty's Day theme was carried throughout the wedding from green table linens to the green frosting on the cupcakes from Hokulani Bakery to the flowers in the bride's hair. The table centerpieces incorporated colorful Siamese Fighter (Betta) fish! Congratulations to the happy couple!

Hualalai Resort Child & Family Photography

This family vacationed at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai on the Big Island of Hawaii and contacted me to take family photos and pictures of their adorable little girl. I spent a Saturday afternoon on the Big Island with this lovely family. The little girl was a bundle of energy!

Newlywed Photo Session, Oahu

Silver Anniversary Portrait, Oahu, Hawaii

Here's another "By the Sea" photography session to celebrate a Silver Anniversary. A couple from Canada treated their "kids" - son, daughter and daughter-in-law - to a trip to Hawaii to mark their 25th wedding anniversary. It was a blustery, overcast day at the beach, but this did not dampen the spirits of this lovely family. The girls colorful sarongs, which they had picked up from the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet just of the portrait session, looked great against the grey sky. This was another extended photo session with family portraits as well as couple portraits. We'll post the newlyweds photos in the next post.

80th Birthday Family Reunion Portrait: Oahu, Hawaii

This family had a reunion in Hawaii to celebrate dad's/granddad's/great-granddad's 80th birthday. They wanted a lot of traditional family group photos. One of the "kids" was also celebrating an engagement, so they opted for an extended portrait package and combined a family reunion portrait session with an engagement session (photos to be posted next!)
