I have been photographing this family when they were just a family of three, awaiting the birth of their 4th member. Having just moved to the island, started my photography career and (back then) a newbie to portrait photography, I found Natalia from my initial marketing efforts and she became my second ever maternity session on the Big Island. Fast forward to today, now a family of five, this mama also pursuing her photography career dreams!
It has been such a joy photographing this ohana (in Hawaii, means family) as they grew. This afternoon we met at the Westin Hapuna for a fun family session! Can you tell how much the kids absolutely just LOVE the water?
