The Makaimoku Family | Family Pictures on the Beach
Bailey is an incredibly talented photographer based in Oahu, Hawaii currently with her husband and adorable little girl. We met through Instagram and our similar taste in humor and photography lead to a fast friendship including lots of double chin selfies and late night “mom-chats”. When she suggested that I fly out and stay with her sometime I never thought it would actually happen… until it did.
Before the AFP Getaway in Hawaii even became a thing, my plane ticket had been purchased and I had no plans except to sleep on Bailey’s couch, hog all of her food, and enjoy the island life for a bit. Obviously my week in Oahu became a lot more than that, and I’m so glad it did because our little destination retreat was a blast, but first and foremost it was about friendship and connections with an awesome human who I just so happened to meet through Instagram.
When I was in the middle of planning the shoots for my Getaway I obviously begged Bailey to let her family model for one of the sessions. Bailey convinced her husband Keawe that some free pictures wouldn’t hurt (husbands always take the most convincing 😉 ), and they made all of our family session dreams come true. Bailey’s adorable floral romper was made for her, and Auden’s mustard dress added the perfect pop of color against the blue ocean water. Auden was ready to get back to playing and eating sand so our session didn’t last too long, but it was playful and fun and exactly what I wanted.
