It was a beautiful morning at the beach when the Johnsons arrived for their Maui family portrait session! Our sweet family, hailing from Waterloo, Ontario, was on a special vacation to celebrate a milestone: their 10th wedding anniversary! And what’s even more remarkable is that they got married right on this very beach! It truly was a memorable and nostalgic moment! Curious to see how their portraits turned out? Keep reading!

A Chapter In Our Love Story

The Johnson Maui family portrait was a happy occasion filled with love, laughter, and lovely memories. Matthew and Nabeela were so excited to show their sweet son, Nyel, 8, the island which holds such a special place in their love story. With the love of their family and the natural beauty of Hawaii all around them, the Johnsons were completely at ease. It was a privilege to photograph such a memorable occasion in their lives. And do not doubt that they will cherish these photos for years to come!

Their son Nyel was delighted to play in the sand and ocean, as you can imagine! Southside Beach was the perfect location for their Maui family portrait because of its variety of tropical backdrops, ranging from palm trees to lava rocks. It’s one of our favorites to shoot and a special one to the Johnsons too!

Mahalo for choosing us again to photograph your family’s memorable moments! It was a delight to see you after all these years, and congratulations! We hope you had a fantastic vacation with many new memories to share!
