Our Favorite Hawaii Family Portrait “Whoops Moments”!


As hard as we try, not every Hawaii family portrait opportunity will be perfect! There will be moments where it’s so windy your hair will cover your smile or your kids will be too excited to stay still for the camera. But it’s moments like these that we as photographers love because real moments bring out personality and reactions! It’s the in-between moments we love so much so, we continue to press that shutter button even for those “whoops” moments!

Today, we hope to bring a smile to your day as we relive some of the cutest “whoops” moments from our past Hawaii family portraits!

Family running shots are definite faves for us and during this session, grandma accidentally fell in the process. Immediately, we were all extremely concerned! But there in the sand, all we could hear was a shrill of laughter coming from her mouth followed by, “I hope you caught that.” Lol!

Kids will be kids! We know this family will love this Hawaii family portrait when these little guys are all grown up! 😉

No matter how hard we try as photographers to keep enough distance from the waves, there’s always that one rogue wave that sneaks up from behind! And when THIS particular wave comes, it comes with a lot of force! Our families are always good sports when an accidental wave like this happens, and when they see a Hawaii family portrait like this, they absolutely LOVE IT!

You simply can’t recreate these experiences. A family soaked from head-to-toe, sandy covered faces, or occasional falls are the little elements that make Hawaii family portraits unique and a fun experience to always remember.

We encourage all of our clients to let loose during their portrait to have images that reflect personality and character in the best way as you spend time together. And we know that’s why our clients always come back for more!
