Seeking Warmth + Light

Jesa and her family make the annual trek to Hawaii in the heart of the long, dark Alaska winter. They make the most of their Hawaii time with long days at the beach, basking in the sun. They even seek out rentals right on the ocean to keep it close. Hawaii is their happy place and I get to capture a bit of it in photos and video each year.

Lush Laie

Seeking the lush, quiet side of Oahu, we met the sunrise at Laie Beach Park. The sky glowed a delicious orange hue as we made our way across the cool sand to dip our toes in the water. An easy morning of silliness, exploration, and laughter passed quickly. With the harsh sun overhead, it was time to jump in the ocean. Only the waves at Laie were too rough so we made a quick drive to an adjacent beach for some much needed water time.

The water was cool and clear and toddler-friendly at Laniloa Beach and we had it all to ourselves. We splashed and swam and drew shapes in the soft sand until hunger pains called us away. Childhood passes quickly, but we managed to capture their joy and personality in their favorite place. Until next year my friends.
