Although a lot of extended families get their pictures done in Hawaii, I really love when a single family has the time to hang out with me on a beach during their vacation. Sometimes they come dreading the "family picture torture" time they expect. But it's so not that! They take their shoes off, laugh, throw rocks, climb trees, and spend some quiet moments remembering why they love their family. In the meantime, I snap away. And now and then, they forget that I'm even there and authentic moments happen. This session with the Garvin family was full of such moments, and I hope they will always treasure their experience on a beach in Hawaii, as well as their photos.
