The Balen family consists of six charming people! Anna, her husband, Michael, mother-in-law, Tracy, father-in-law, Alan, and brothers-in-law, Matthew and Ben, visited the island from Michigan. This trip was extra special because it’s Anna’s first time in Hawaii! Based on her vibrant smile, you can tell she loved every second of her time in paradise!

The Location For Their Oahu Family Portraits

Setting the scene for these photos was Secret Beach in Ko Olina. This hidden Oahu spot provided breathtaking backdrops for every shot! You’ll find many stunning landscapes here — from the lofty palm trees to the striking rocks. Not only was the weather flawless, but the morning sun naturally enhanced every picture. Its rays shined brilliantly onto the azure ocean and ivory shore, making these photos more magical!

This lovely group wanted to take Oahu family portraits because they rarely get them done. We know these lighthearted pictures will remind them of the great memories they made in Hawaii. Most importantly, now Tracy has some beautiful photos with her three boys!

We enjoyed photographing this sweet group. When they arrived at the sandy beach, we knew they were ready to have some fun! Every member of this family was energetic and blissful. They put their feet in the water, sat on the rocks, and shared a few laughs during their session!
