The Title Holders
My most photographed family. “Do we still hold the title?” Elisabeth asked with a laugh when we met again. Even thought they live in Texas, I’ve photographed them more than any other family. It’s something I look forward to each year. The kids think it’s a special treat too as I try to take them on a new adventure each year. We’ve been all over the island to play at different types of beaches, take family-friendly hikes, and explore lush parks. They push me to keep seeking out new locations and I have a few more special spots in mind for them. Eventually, though, we may need to switch islands.
About the Session
Long before the sun came up, I started the journey to the far end of Oahu. Our destination was Yokohama Bay. The end of the road and perhaps the farthest drive-able distance on the island. The sky began to glow a soft pink as I approached the Waianae Coast, happily moving in the opposite direction of rush hour traffic. The traffic began to thin and the country grew wilder and more rugged and finally, I was there.
I breathed in the fresh salt air and took in the vastness of the coastline. With few signs of civilization, it was like stepping back in time. The only other sole was a lone fisherman. Not even the lifeguard was at his post yet.
The kids emerged from their van in an excited bundle and our adventure began. Our feet met cool sand as we made our way to the beach and we had to jump around and yell at the waves to stay warm. We spent hours happily playing on the beach. It wasn’t until hunger overcame us that we.
Our evening adventure included a hike around Koko Head Botanical Garden. A long grove of Plumeria trees lies at the entrance to the hike like a red carpet welcome. Before long you’re enveloped in the crater by different worlds. The cactus garden is a personal favorite.
As the sun began to set we ended another grand Hawaiian adventure. A hui hou!
