Honolulu Photographer | A Family Group on Vacation in Ko’olina

Paradise for a Honolulu Photographer

Her perfect blond ringlets bounced in the sun as we walked down the long, sandy path to a favorite beach, Paradise Cove Beach in Koolina. Here, the sun always seems to be shining with a light breeze rustling palm trees overhead. The water is calm and filled with colorful delights from curious sea turtles to bright butterflyfish. It’s a beginner beach; perfect for wave wary babies and toddlers and an ideal ocean playground.

An Ideal Baby Beach

The girls were shy at first. Independently, they explored their surroundings in the cool light of sunrise. At first, they weren’t particularly excited about this early morning adventure but soon they got caught up in our games and forgot to worry. Further, into the water, they ventured to splash and laugh among the tiny waves until they were fully submerged.

Safety in Numbers. The Joys of an Extended Family Vacation

Traveling to Hawaii with extended family. The rest of the group jumped in near the end of the photography session for quick photos and some cousin beach fun. The boys stopped abruptly mid-water fight to gawk open-mouthed at the sea. Their tiny faces flickered between delight and terror and they stood together motionless. And then we saw them. Three curious sea turtles cruising around the cove gobbling up bits of algae. In the end, curiosity won them over and they laughed as the turtles glided effortlessly around their toes. When the desire to splash and run became too strong, they were off to explore a new part of the beach.
