I knew that I was going to love this family from the very first conversation I had with Lisa during our phone consultation. As she described her family, her voice lit up. For them, they work hard. And play hard. And family hard (if that’s a thing). I asked what her favorite vacation memory was and she told me about the individual trips they took with their kids. When each of them turned ten years old, they took them a one-on-one trip to New York. What a fun way to celebrate entering the world of double digits! And her favorite thing about her husband? That he’s so family oriented. She choked up at the thought of him spending time with his children. For that man, his family is always his priority. Always.
More than anything, Lisa wanted a session that showed how they love. The fun they have. The joy. The laughter. The relaxed and carefree feeling that comes with being on vacation. So we made our way to White Rock Beach in Makena and caught the sunset. And I joined them the next evening at their private villa with a bottle of wine and my laptop containing their newly edited images.
As much fun as the shooting process is, my favorite part is watching the family watch their slideshow for the very first time. It’s something new that we’ve introduced recently: a 24-hour editing turnaround and in-person, on-location viewing appointments. Because showing
clients friends their vacation photos while they are still on vacation is just too much fun.
