Nuuanu Photographer | The Twin Life

A Break from the Cold

When you’re smack dab in the middle of a cold, Canadian winter it’s fun to fantasize about warmer times and places. That desire for warmth was strong enough for Allison to book flights and make the long trek to Hawaii despite the hardship of traveling with twin one-year-olds and a five-year old.

Since they are not serious beach lovers and were unsure how the babies would react to the sand and waves, we headed inland for our session. As much as I love the beach, the forest is always a welcome change from the unrelenting sun and wind. Forest sessions feel calmer, more peaceful. As if you have all the time in the world.

Nuuanu Valley Park is a personal favorite. Birds trill loudly in the twisting, Dr. Suessian trees. Branches move and rustle in the wind allowing shafts of light to stream down to the forest floor spotlighting treasures below. The park somehow manages the delicate balance of manicured lawn and wild jungle. You can plunge into the dense thicket to experience it more intimately or simply admire the wildness from the maintained path. Either way, you feel like you’re somewhere far away and maybe, just maybe, a bit magical.

Twin Life

Allison decided that a Hawaiian background would be a great opportunity for a family photo session. She didn’t want anything overly posed or stressful. She simply wanted to capture the beautiful chaos of their lives.

And chaos is was. The mere fact of being outnumbered by these little people meant someone was always in need and or getting into trouble. These two parents handled each meltdown and whine with grace, love and humor.
