Apr 08: OUR family photo session in Hawaii family photography

6 Sparkly Comments

Several years ago I was fortunate enough to meet Jen Fox at a photography retreat. I instantly knew she was a gem. A super talented one at that!

Each year that my family visits Oahu I tell myself that we should do a photo session with her. Luckily this year I listened to myself! Just in time too as she is moving back to the mainland any day now.

This time I made myself bring my “big girl camera” to Hawaii and I tried to take pictures of my family every day. Sometimes it’s a pain to haul it around, worry about it getting full of sand and water, and then actually find the energy to pull it out… but I am always so glad to have these images of my family. The only trouble is that I wasn’t in one of the photos! Not trouble really if you’re like me and try to avoid the camera, but trouble if thirty years down the road anyone looking at them would never know I had been there. I don’t want to be absent from my families memories. So thank you so much Jen for proving that I was actually there!

You are amazing. (That means rad in Jen-ese.)
