Happy Days – The Mattson’s Maui Family Portrait


We’re thrilled to share the heartwarming Maui family portrait session of the Mattson family as they embarked on an impromptu escape from the Seattle grey to bask in the much-needed sunshine of Hawaii. This trip held a special significance for the Mattsons, as it marked a momentous occasion: their daughter, now 7 years old, was finally old enough to create lasting memories of their Hawaiian adventure, complete with all the classic island activities, from luaus to beach escapades! So, let’s dive in to see more of their island fun!

Sunkissed Vacation

The Mattsons found themselves embraced by the warmth of family love amidst the radiant beauty of Maui. Their history with Hawaii runs deep, from the cherished memories of their honeymoon in 2009 to subsequent visits every other year. They have a vivid history of love and joy against the backdrop of this island paradise. Despite the unexpected hiatus due to COVID disrupting their 2020 plans, the allure of Maui called them back once more. Moreover, it sparked a renewed sense of excitement and anticipation!

The family’s portrait session at D.T. Fleming Beach was nothing short of magical. The golden rays of sunshine illuminated the breathtaking scenery, casting a warm glow over their joyous gathering. It was a day filled with laughter, playful moments, and an undeniable sense of togetherness. We captured the Mattson family in their element, exuding pure happiness and contentment. Lastly, we love how they wore bright and cheery colors that really popped against the beachy colors!

Amber, the family’s avid photographer, relinquished her role behind the lens for a day, entrusting the task of capturing their precious moments with our Maui family portrait photographer! And what a delight it was! With the sun on their faces and the ocean breeze in their hair, the Mattsons reveled in the sheer fun and lightheartedness of the experience, knowing that these captured moments would serve as cherished mementos, evoking the spirit of their special trip for years to come.
