It’s hard to believe that we’ve called this island home for long enough to have repeat clients! The Smiths were one of our first families we photographed after moving this business across the Pacific, and they returned to Maui this summer for their annual family vacation.
We meet them for a quick session in Wailea and managed to catch the very last bit of sunset. If you’ve watched their reality show on TBS, you know that the family is as fun-loving as they are tight-knit. Last year, Kenny wanted a photo of the whole family jumping. This year, he wanted one of them all dancing. So they danced. Right there on the grass, every one of them unabashedly busted out their signature dance move to the music of the waves. That’s what I love about photographing the Smiths. They don’t take themselves too seriously. And they much rather prefer the fun, unposed, outside-the-box type of family portrait than the safe ones.
I have to admit, I kind of do too!
