Sunrise Smash and Splash with the Haff Family

Amanda contacted me back in April for her son, Finley’s cake smash. She came over for her pre-session consult and we planned the perfect cake smash. She wanted a sunrise photo shoot with nods to Hawaii since her son was born here on Oahu. We chatted out outfits, theme, and cake décor as we sipped on coffee and the kids played in the living room.

I always like it when clients can come to my home. Here you can relax, your kids can play all while viewing samples, the client closet and planning your shoot. It’s honestly like a Pinterest playdate for both mom and kids. If I’m in the baking mood, you’ll even get to have some of my scones (lemon blueberry is my summer go to but if its fall I LOVE cranberry with orange zest). We went over boards, Amanda chose Kahana Bay and we came up with a beautiful, simplistic shoot with a touch of pineapple to give a slight Hawaiian theme.

After he smashed the cake, dad and sister joined in. Corally ended up with cake on her nose, and seemed quite pleased. Afterwards they danced in the surf, splashed, and as many splash sessions end, went home wet and sandy.

She looks very pleased with herself here.

Corally was a great big sister and a ton of help for her brother’s shoot.family photo session kaneohe kailua oahu hawaii beach photo session kahana bayfamily photo session kaneohe kailua oahu hawaii beach photo session kahana bay

When I returned to Kahana Bay the next week for my personal photo session this log was nowhere to be found. I was a little disappointed but at the same time so grateful we got to use it for the kids.

“hand in hand, they danced in the sand by the early light of day…” If we don’t dance at some point during our session then I have done you a great disservice.family photo session kaneohe kailua oahu Hawaii beach photo shoot cake smash Kahana Bay

This was my first time shooting at Kahana Bay, I loved it so much I decided to return the next week for my own family session (but that is another blog)

 

Thank you so much for joining me along my journey. Stay tuned for next week!

    I miss Hawaii so much seeing this. This family session just makes me smile from ear-to-ear. You can just see the pure joy in their faces.

    This session is so warming. I just love how you captured this family. Hawaii beaches and cake are a great idea. Makes me want to go eat cake now!
