If you've been following my work, you know how much I adore color. So, of course, I was happy to see this family dressed in different colors and patterns for their family photo shoot at Keawakapu Beach on Maui's south shore. They didn't worry about being too matchy-matchy, but with mother/daughter and father/son in complementary colors, it all worked without being too forced.
In fact, that's also my style - I don't like posing too much, especially with families. It works better when everyone is being themselves, having fun and not thinking about the camera. That's when all the happiness and love shines the brightest. My favorite part of this session was really seeing mommy Jennifer so happy. I know how challenging life can be as a mommy myself and how you may not feel very glamorous at times, so I took the opportunity to give Jennifer a little spotlight. Every mommy deserves a special attention, don't you agree?
