Family Friendship & Connectedness

Friendship Among Family

Friendship. It’s sometimes not the first word that comes to mind when you think of the word FAMILY. But this session definitely shows that friendship is a huge part of the family equation.

A couple weeks ago I had an amazing session at one of my favorite off the beaten path locations, Olowalu Landing. This place is special because it offers such a diverse array of backgrounds. I felt it would be the perfect place to take this very special family.

Mom, Robyn, wanted a session that would celebrate the friendship and interconnectedness of her family. With three growing kids, two being teenagers, it was refreshing for me to capture not only the semi-posed moments, but also the laughter and friendships between these siblings. I adored the silliness and play and the feeling that they are all so at ease with each other. I could tell that being together was a place where they could all be themselves.

The location played in so nicely to wide environmental images showing the magic of Maui and the waves crashing into the jetty made for a really fun backdrop.  Maui gave us amazing light and salt spray in the air creating light beams. Additionally,  waves crashing into the jetty were a total bonus.

Mom, Robyn, is the creative mind behind Radtagz and her motto of love, belonging, and connection resonated with me big time! What an honor to capture the love and friendship and true sense of belonging that her children are privileged to have within their family unit. xoxo
