Turtle Bay Family Session // Oahu, Hawaii Photographer

Turtle Bay is the beautiful resort here on the North Shore of Oahu that has beaches, pools, restaurants and a golf course while keeping the secluded island feel! The sunsets here in the summer are seriously postcard-worthy so I was so excited when this family decided to keep it easy and stay on the Turtle Bay property for their photos!

It’s so nice to be able to stay at the pool all day long, order drinks while the kids play, go up to the room to get ready and then enjoy a sunset photo session and dinner overlooking the ocean. Seriously a must for people looking to maximize a day or two of relaxation on vacation.

I absolutely loved working with this family. Ashley is the best boy mom totally rolling with all the changes in energy, playing with sticks, splashing in the water and having FUN with her boys! It’s the most refreshing thing to have parents that just enjoy the session regardless of how willing the kids are to smile. Even dad was taking full advantage of having me there and kept playing past sunset. And now they have sweet memories to look back on when they see these pictures.

I can’t stress enough to just let kids be kids when the photographer is around. To let the experience unfold and to have photographs that tell an actual story of your current season. The results are far better than upset kids and forced smiles, every time.
