A Large Family Photo Session
When you have a family of ten with kids ranging from 6 to 26-years-old organizing a family vacation feels downright heroic. The packing alone can make your head spin. That is a lot of people to organize and coral into a single location with the hopes of a memory making trip.
With a distinct age gap, the family felt divided between older kids and younger kids and April was looking forward to bridging that gap with this time together. She wanted them to play, make memories and feel like a cohesive unit. As this was very likely a once-in-a-lifetime vacation, she wanted to capture the heart of it with family photos and a film. They rented a vacation home in Waimanalo and were ready for fun.
About the Session
The original plan for this water-loving, adventurous family was to play in the waves at Sherwood Beach. However, the older kids had their own lives to attend to and we only had one day of overlap where all family members were present. And that day was cold. Are you allowed to say a day is cold when you’re in Hawaii?
The sky was thick with clouds that sat heavy on the mountains.
The family arrived and spilled out of their van in high spirits. Silliness and teasing was their love language and we shared many laughs as we explored the beach.
