Hawaii Lifestyle Films and Photography | Journey to the End of the World

A Long Journey

Sweden is nearly at the opposite end of the world from Hawaii. Not only in distance but in terms of weather and culture. But that was part of the appeal. Jenni was planning an epic, multi-destination family trip and decided that Hawaii would be the ultimate final destination. And what better way to document their journey and this stage of their lives than with family photos and a film? The ultimate souvenir.

They wanted something mellow, beautiful and infused with a bit of adventure so they put me in charge of planning. We started with sunrise at serenely beautiful Lanikai Beach and finished with an easy family hike to a nearby waterfall for a contrasting splash of green.

The Perfect Weather for a Photo Session

Although I don’t have a favorite beach for photo sessions, I do have favorite weather. The most stunning on the windward side are those rare ones without wind. I might curse those calm, muggy days at midday, but at sunrise, it’s perfection. Without tiny wavelets rippling the oceans surface, the water sparkles and dances. The girls were happy to play and dance alongside it. When it got too warm, we simply jumped in. The girls took to the beach life immediately. Both delighted at the warm water and sand and played until they couldn’t keep their eyes open.

A Short Waterfall Hike

After lunch and a nap we met again in the afternoon for a dramatically different backdrop. This time we headed mauka and into the forest for a short waterfall hike. Quietly, we explored mossy tree limbs and dangling vines. We were alone save for unseen shama birds filling the trees with their song. As our grand finale, we splashed under the waterfall.
