When the E. family called and said they wanted to sneak in a family portrait session before the end of the year, I knew we had to work fast!  They were waiting on family members to come into town for the Holidays & with 12 people, it was a tough bunch to photograph in the neighbors backyard, but we had fun.












The G. family lives up by the beautiful Grey Hawk Country Club.  We agreed to meet there and take some wonderful holiday card pictures & adorable images of Logan & Noah.  Sadly, the weather didn't cooperate and it rained most of the day.  We were forced inside to work around the holiday party setup crews.  We managed to sneak in some cute photographs before the parties started.  


Logan was all smiles!

We finally got Noah to love the camera.

These two were a lot of fun to spend the day photographing, there was lots of "LOVE" in the air.  We did spend all day in the park & took a ton of amazing shots, these two will go far.














The title says it all!  We are  in beautiful, sunny, tropical Hawaii!  Vacations aren't really vacations when you're a photographer.  Life keeps you pretty busy as the need to capture everything you see.  We spent our week at the Hale Koa Hotel, which is located on an amazing stretch of beach in Waikiki.  Oahu is the third largest of all Hawaiian Islands, the state capital Honolulu is located on the southeast coast.  Below are some highlights from our trip.
