Waikoloa Family photography session at A-bay (Anaehoomalu Bay)

Robert and Tia Yagi met in college at University of Hawaii in Hilo and fell in love at first sight, 9 years later and 1 year into their marriage a little blessing was born. Kainoa James Yagi-born July 10, 2014. Born just weeks before Hurricane Iselle hit the East Side of the Big Island and in Pele’s direct path of her current flow this family came to overcome so much right from the start. This session was a nice break from the scary reality of nature’s destruction for the Yagi family. At 8 weeks old this was Kainoa’s first time not only to the West Side of the island but the first time to the beach. He loved squishing his feet around in the sand and even fell asleep to the sound of the waves crashing behind them. They are so happy to have had these pictures taken of Kai-they cherish them. Babies are only so small for so long-he almost looks like a doll in most of the pictures. They used the picture of their feet in the sand as their Christmas card to send out to their families on the mainland.

The Taylor Ladies, Anaeho’omalu Bay Waikoloa, Big Island of Hawaii

I was so excited when Morgan, my lighting assistant asked me to do a mother daughter photo session with her, her sister Sara and and her mom Cheri! The Taylor ladies are all  beautiful and easy to photograph, very natural in front of the camera. We had the best time that day. It was so great to have a group of girls together with nothing but positive happy energy! After this shoot, I realized how awesome mother daughter photo sessions are. Years from now, when Morgan and Sara have left home or get married, Cheri will look back at these photos and always remember the day she and her daughter got glammed up for a photo shoot at Anaeho’omalu beach.

Thank you, lovely Taylor ladies, for making this shoot so amazing.
