Hawaii Mini Photo Session | Quick Memories in a Tropical Forest

A Short Story

As hard as it is to admit it, not everyone is up for a full family photo session. I get it. A longer session makes people nervous – especially if they have experienced (and barely survived) family photography in the past. As much I try to assure you that my sessions are made to be fun and center on creating a memorable experience, it can still feel too risky.

So I created Short Story Sessions to fill in the gap. What I’ve found is that they’re perfect for families with babies or those who don’t need a large gallery of images. It’s a nice way to update photos annually or grab a few happy images of your time in Hawaii.

I’m not going to lie, I love taking photos so much that once I’m in action, it’s hard to pull me away. But I’ve come to find that these shorter sessions that focus on portraits are a delight to photograph as well

Pandemic Baby

As pandemic restrictions began to lift I was flooded with inquiries from parents with babies. Most had missed maternity and newborn photo sessions and were trying to catch up with their first professional photoshoot. It was a joy to celebrate these happy additions to an otherwise difficult year.

I met Erin’s family under the brilliant green canopy of Nuuanu Valley Park. It was completely empty so we took our time exploring, gawking at the impressive trees and laughing. It was a lovely morning.
