In the midst of packing to move overseas, Dennis and his family realized they wanted family photos. They needed them. Only two more weeks remained in a home they loved. Soon there would be no more warm evenings at the beach with the girls jumping waves and building sandcastles. They didn’t want to forget how tightly the girls clung to their hands as they stood by the shore. Or how their sandy faces lit up as they chased the surf back and forth endlessly. And so, in the mire of cardboard boxes and moving checklists, they reached out for a family photo session.
Hawaii Family Photos For the Win
And so we set out for one last beach day. One last big celebration of Hawaii in all its tropical magic. We lucked out with the weather and pulled into the parking lot of Sherwood Beach on a clear evening. Crowds of beach revelers were also enjoying the great weater so we ducked into the forest.
The girls were shy and reluctant at first, barely lifting their eyes to the new stranger. However, after a few games, they couldn’t help themselves. Quiet giggles quickly escalated into big belly laughs and they were fully absorbed in the joys of a family beach day.
We laughed and played under the golden light of the forest and as the summer heat became more bearable, we traded the shade of the forest for sand feet. Waves crashed dramatically on the sloped shore sending the girls running for cover. They squealed with delight and ventured further and further offshore. We stayed until the sky turned pink and the air began to cool. It was a perfect beach day.
