Returning With Our Boys – The Bales’ Big Island Family Portrait


When the Bales family decided to have their family portrait taken on the beautiful island of Hawaii, they were seeking more than just posed photos. They wanted to capture their family naturally having fun, and with two energetic boys aged 4 and 2, there was no shortage of energy and excitement!

Being in Hawaii with their children brought an extra dose of happiness to the Bales. The boys were thrilled to explore this tropical paradise, and their infectious enthusiasm made every moment even more special. The family had a sentimental connection to the location as well, as it was near the Lava Lava Club where they exchanged vows back in 2017.

The love between the Bales family was evident as they interacted and played during their Big Island family portrait session. The sweet nature of their boys shone through, creating moments of pure joy that the camera effortlessly captured. It was heartwarming to witness the genuine connection and affection shared by everyone!

Sweet Memories

They chose to schedule their Big Island family portrait session in the morning at Anaeho’omalu Bay (A-Bay), taking advantage of the vibrant light and the stunning colors of the water. The morning sun painted the turquoise waves with a vivid hue, enhancing the beauty of their surroundings. It was truly a sight to behold, and the photographs turned out to be nothing short of breathtaking.

As they laughed, played, and enjoyed their time together, the Bales family created memories that would last a lifetime. The familiarity of the location added an extra layer of sentimentality to the experience, reminding them of their wedding day near the Lava Lava Club in 2017. It was a special way to celebrate the growth of their family and the love that continues to flourish!
