Excuse me while I gush about this family for a bit…

Abbe is a fellow NAPCP photographer, and when she told me they were coming to Maui on vacation, I was so excited I’d get to meet her in person. The fact that she also wanted to do photos was icing on the cake (and a bit of pressure because she is an amazing photographer)!

We got busy planning a sunset lifestyle session with a few posed images, and lots candids documenting the fun, connection and closeness they share as a family. Abbe put together the most perfect set of outfits in blue hues with pops of color – we just needed a good sunset to round it out, and Maui did not disappoint.

I really enjoy seeing inside the inner workings of each family during a photo session, and observing what makes them tick and brings them together. I loved how much this family let me in to see all the love and fun, the connections, even the goofiness. It is so special to me when a family is vulnerable enough to open up this much, I never take that for granted. I understand the trust it takes.

It allowed to me to create a set of images for them that I absolutely adore, as I do their family. Below are just a few of my favorites.

If you happen to live in the Charlotte, NC area or ever find yourself out that way, consider Abbe for your own family photos – she is one of the sweetest, kindest people I know and her work is gorgeous.

Thank you Abbe and family for a wonderful evening together, and thank you for being you! <3
