Extended Family Session // Ko Olina, Hawaii

Extended families have my heart! You guys already know that I love extended family sessions because of all the new family shots I’m able to get during them. I also just thrive in joy and chaos.

We dream of having all of our extended family come visit Hawaii together and the memories we would make. I definitely live vicariously through these extended family sessions! Growing up in a big family, I think I’m most at home when I’m surrounded by families like this one! It helps that they’re from a place near my hometown so they really did feel like home. Haha.

In one of the families, sis has all the personality! I absolutely love that she went cross-eyed in one of the photos. I think it’s just part of the delight of childhood we somehow lose as adults. I’m sure we have all been tired of having our photos taken at one point or another, but I love that kids aren’t afraid to make it known. Also there’s a big ole laugh at the end that is one of my new favorite photos! Scroll to see some of her darling faces.

You also might recognize some of these guys from this maternity session (yes, bean nugget is here!) and this family session over the last couple of years. Repeat clients and friends who support your business are both such huge blessings! I will never take that for granted.
