Fairmont Orchid Waikoloa – Big Island, Hawaii Family Session

Family photography session at the Fairmont Orchid with Laura Pittman Photography

Hawaii Family Photography: Fairmont Orchid Resort, Waikoloa

Jenny and her family reached out to me during their Big Island stay at the Fairmont Orchid, requesting a family session while they are here in Hawaii. I loved the way that Jenny described their desire to capture their girls at their current ages, as well as document their travel as a family. I couldn’t agree more with the importance of this! Their little ones may not always remember this trip, but they will always cherish these photos of them, barefoot in Hawaii, tickling and kissing their mom and dad on the beach.

With a Hawaii family session at golden hour (my favorite!) I like to start out in the shade and the greenery, and then make my way down to the beach once the light is soft and golden (and not too harsh), but for the sake of this post I’m starting with the beautiful sky first, so scroll down for the greenery shots!

I always do a mixture of candid shots as well as ones where I at least try to get people looking at the camera! Which type of shots do you prefer?

BEHIND THE LENS

ABOUT 

Capturing beauty and connecting with people brings me joy. A camera lets me do both!

I picked up a camera and the rest is history. I fell in love. The art of photography, the ability to connect with people, and the chance to do what I adore all inspire me. You can feel it when you're with me. Photography has been such a blessing in my life, and I want to pass that blessing on to you.
