Happy Memories

Amidst the laid-back vibes and serene landscapes of Southside Beach, the Jacobsons found their slice of paradise. Despite some initial shyness from the kids and a hint of reluctance from Kyle (the not-so-enthusiastic photo participant), their Maui family portrait session turned into an unexpected revelry of sweet moments and genuine smiles. Their joy was beautifully illuminated by the perfect Maui morning lighting!

The serene backdrop, with its golden sands and bold blue sky, reflected their happy energy. Tennyson is currently penning a memoir of their life’s extraordinary journey, and saw this as an opportunity not only to capture the essence of their first solo family vacation but also to gather inspiration and perhaps a photo or two for her upcoming book! How amazing is that!?

Lyla, with her passion for dance, and Skyler, the sports enthusiast, brought their unique energies to the session. It created a dynamic atmosphere that was a joy to capture! Despite the challenges they’ve faced, including Lyla’s recent health struggles, their spirits were undiminished, showcasing the resilience and tight-knit bond of this remarkable family.
