An Annual Vacation – The Rafael’s Big Island Family Portrait


The Rafael family couldn’t contain their excitement to come back to the Big Island after an eight-year wait. Our family of five, including their 10-year-old eldest daughter and adorable 6-year-old twin girls, they were ready for a memorable vacation in paradise. Hawaii holds a special place in their hearts, and they made it a tradition to explore every island annually.

This time, their trip was extra special because it marked the twin girls’ first visit to the Big Island and coincided with the celebration of their husband’s birthday! What better way to commemorate this joyous occasion than by capturing timeless Big Island family portraits?

Time With Our Girls

Dressed in matching aloha-printed dresses, the Rafael girls looked absolutely adorable. The bright colors perfectly complemented the vibrant scenery of the beach. Their smiles lit up the beach as they eagerly posed for the camera! We love how they all wore a vibrant pop of color for their Big Island family portrait!

The family was so enthusiastic about their Big Island family portrait at Kohanaiki Beach. The morning sun cast a warm glow, making their photos sunny and bright. Every click of the camera captured the love and happiness that radiated within this tight-knit family!

Our family photographer made sure to capture not just their beautiful faces but also their stunning surroundings. Lush foliage, clear turquoise water, and classic Hawaiian lava rocks served as picturesque elements in the background, adding a touch of island charm to their portraits. Each shot was a treasure, encapsulating the love, joy, and growth of their daughters…
