Ahhhhhh, the golden hour! And how wonderful is mom's marigold dress?
I love it when families have style!
I've driven by this beach park at least 50 times and always had another destination in mind, so we'd never actually stopped there. When our clients suggested it for their upcoming location shoot, we were excited to finally see it, and wow (!) did we see what we'd been missing!
Right when you enter the park there is a large grassy field, full of egrets and terns searching for their next snack. And of course you have the most majestic mountain range as a backdrop. I am forever amazed at the Ko'olau Mountains. Did you know they are actually the remaining "back wall" of a massive volcano? The "front wall" slid into the pacific and if you look at google maps in the satellite filter you can see the underwater formations that were the Ko'olau volcano!
So incredible! And so was this family! How cute their little ones? Both were completely zonked out when they arrived. So we started slow with some snuggle photos and I couldn't be happier with how those turned out. It's just so wonderful to see love in action!
Then it was time to check out the other view...
Mom upped her outfit game yet another notch with the beautiful haku lei she created from the plumeria in her yard! It was a cotton candy sunset and we had this mini-beach to ourselves complete with Mokolii in the background. It was time for some splashing in the surf, some shell finding in the sand, and some shots of just mom and dad! I love the the two palm trees in the background. They're growing together, just like I hope this great couple will continue to do!
Thank you beautiful family for introducing me
to this beautiful spot!
