Exploring A New Island

Although the Velazquez family had visited Maui in the past, the Big Island held a sense of excitement and novelty for them. Moreover, they were looking forward to creating new memories together on a new Hawaiian island!

As the morning light bathed ʻAnaehoʻomalu Bay (A-Bay), its gentle rays illuminated the family accentuating the vibrant colors of the tropical environment. The lush greenery, weathered driftwood, and deep turquoise waters came alive in their portraits, adding a touch of natural beauty to the scene. It was a harmonious blend of their joy among the wonders of nature! These are just a few reasons why it’s worth getting up early for a portrait session on the beach!

The girls, Arden and Isla, were brimming with delight, their wide smiles capturing the essence of childhood wonder and innocent joy!
