When you live in Alaska – Fairbanks, Alaska that is – you start to crave a little vitamin D mid winter. That’s why Jesa and her family make an annual pilgrimage to Hawaii. They look forward to their time next to the ocean where they can listen to the surf pounding outside their window and breathe in the salty air. This trip was extra special. With a baby boy due in a few short months, it would be their last visit as a family of three.
Jesa is a photographer herself and she found herself falling in love with the magic of video to tell a story; to stop time so you can go back and revisit a treasured memory again and again. To make the most of this trip, she scheduled a lifestyle video session for their family. All they had to do was spend a morning playing and snuggling.
With big yawns, we wandered out the back door of their beach side rental on Laie Beach to take in a warm, glowing sunrise and make memories. The beach was empty, shared only with a handful of curious crabs. As the sun began to warm the air, little Isla sprung to life. She chased waves, made sand castles, and was showered with love. It was a morning to warm your soul.
Making a family film doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice photos. The photos were captured alongside film so they could have the best of both worlds.
