Kailua Beach Sunset Family Photos – Oahu, Hawaii

I am so blessed with amazing clients, and always enjoy meeting a new family!  How fun is photographing a slice of Hawaii life for them!  These busy boys kept me on my toes, and trying to think of every trick in my book to keep them engaged.  Kudos to their parents who stayed in good humor and kept the boys reasonably dry, which made for a delightful evening on Kailua Beach, capturing a little of this family’s story.   Military service has taken them all over the world and this is the second time they’ve lived in Hawaii.  The first time was sans children, though adding their firstborn son before they left.  They previously lived near this beautiful beach with a view of Kaneohe Marine Corp base, and it holds many fond memories. This time in Hawaii these three boys will make many memories and I bet Kailua Beach will be a favorite of theirs too!

Jumping also keeps the boys engaged – getting off the ground at the same time is the challenge.  Good jumps, boys!

This little guy wanted no part of parting with his shoes and once he located this coconut he was much happier.  Such a cutie!

Oahu Hawaii Family Photographer – Sunset Pictures

Sunset Sundays in Ko’Olina is a tradition for this family, as they enjoy a few years on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.  Thankful that Chris is willing to serve our country as a Navy doctor, and thankful these friends have allowed me to experience a little bit of paradise with them!  It’s been a few years since we’d taken family photos, so it was time to update them as the kids are growing like weeds and thriving with lots of sun, sand and waves.   Glad we were able to go to one of their favorite places for pictures, to document their time in Hawaii and their kids at these ages.  And God outdid himself by painting the most amazing sunset to cap it off!  You’ve got to scroll down and see it!

Why do kids (who are begging to “be done”) always want into the photos, when it’s not their turn??  These kids sure know how to put on a side show!  Grant even jumped OVER his parents, much to their surprise!

Alexandria Newborn Photographer – Identical Twin Boys – Hayes and Finley

I love catching up with my wedding clients, especially when there’s the excitement of newborn identical twin boys to photograph!  And so fun to see big brother, Everett, again who has grown up so much since his one year old photo session a year ago.  He loves his letters, as you’ll see he brought handfuls to hold onto for pictures with his baby brothers.  These three boys will have so much fun growing up together!

McLean VA Twins Newborn Pictures – Austin and Connor

Double the sweetness!  Theses adorable fraternal twin brothers were so good for their first baby pictures!  They and big brother are a handsome bunch, aren’t  they?!  I always enjoy photographing newborn babies, and the preciousness of the short time they are so tiny.  And twins are a special photo session for sure!  It’s so fun to see how they already have their own personalities, right from the start!

Sisters Under the Cherry Blossoms – Washington DC Photographer

How sweet are these blue-eyed sisters in their smocked pale pink dresses under the cherry trees in Washington, DC? So glad we had just one not so windy warm day to squeeze in this photo session, as the blossoms were falling, so little sister has similar portraits to big sister’s cherry blossom pictures two years ago.   Aren’t these girls just the cutest?
