The Mack Family : Maui, Hawaii : Destination

It was such a smart idea, why not? We are in Maui for goodness sakes! The island of happiness, it is not disneyland. It is Maui. An absolutely beautiful island with so much to see, do and EAT! Gemini sent me an email to set up a family session since we were both there for a wedding for a special couple, I was very excited to be given such a wonderful opportunity!

Upon meeting them, Dominic had just woken up from his nap, and Liana was like me, “Island of paradise, come to me!!!!” She just couldn’t wait to get in the water. Neither could I. I don’t blame you for being a kid at a candy store.

So the goal was to get everyone to look at me, I just needed a second of their time, maybe even 2. It was fun, but we all know what my favorite images are: Just the way they are. Moments captured. Not picture perfect but picture worthy – full of personality and life.

Gemini, John: Thank you. Thank you so much.

Here is a look at your session with me.

Liana amuses me. Ha!

One out of 4. Getting so close.


Just because Gemini looks great. =)

See.. Liana loves Maui. I love Maui too. Liana, you can hold my hand anytime and we can run up and down the beach kicking sand and water.


This is my fav.


Last, this is just funny. I wanted her to do whatever she wanted.
This picture is for you Liana. This is one you will share with your friends, Lil’ Miss Independent.

Tricia + Darryl + Baby G

Darryl just came home from Afghanistan this past Friday and has not seen Tricia for almost 8 months.  This was the first time he has seen her pregnant belly, on Sunday, they both found out they are having a girl.  A sweet reunion.  Now my eyes are watering.  Congrats!  Congrats! Congratulations!

It is always so wonderful to use new locations and props for a shoot.  Plus this time, Tricia wanted to put a stop to naked belly shots and wanted to have fun with pretty dresses and the boots were calling.  Here is just a sneak peek.  I always like to post my favorite photos last but this time – I am just too excited plus Britney’s toxic is playing in the background (I’m hyped).

Oh, the idea of getting intimate in front of a camera makes Tricia giggle like a little girl kissing her crush for the first time.

Check out her smirk.

Power couple.

I am saving my favs for last…

Now Mr Curiousity is playing by Jason Mraz and it is affecting the choice of photos and its setup but I like it.

I really want to thank the both of you and I am really happy for you two. Really happy.
