Simply Adorable – The Shanebeck Family’s Hawaii Beach Portraits

These Hawaii beach portraits of the Shanebeck Family are simply adorable! With four smart and beautiful girls in the nest, there were plenty of smiles and rambunctious energy on the shore! Visiting from southern Cali, the Shanebecks had to cancel their previous plans to vacation in Maui, so they were thrilled when the restrictions finally lifted and they were at last able to get their feet sandy!

Mom and Dad have visited several islands, but this is their first time on Maui and the girls’ first time in Hawaii. So we decided to frame this awesome crew against the vibrant shore of Southside Beach. With a timid morning ocean, this location is perfect for small children. Southside also features a variety of backdrops that create fun and dynamic shots for all occasions.

The Shanebecks were celebrating two birthdays during this trip! Both Mom and their oldest daughter finished another year around the sun. The girls were a little shy at first, but became super silly and chatty when they warmed up, just as Mom had predicted!

We can’t get enough of these sweet shots of the cute little discussion between the sisters. We can just imagine them all grown up and wondering what it was that they were talking and laughing about so long ago.

When asked what she was most looking forward to with these Hawaii Beach Portraits, Mom answered, “I love family pictures! I tell my family it’s my love language. 🙂 I try to get them done once a year or so but we took pictures when we were visiting in Colorado and they are my favorite!” We completely agree! Family photos are a love language! And you can almost hear the love and joy in these!
