We received a familiar e-mail the day before our beach session with Kahnh and her beautiful little family. She and her husband had taken their little one to the beach twice in an effort to acclimate him to the sand, with little success. He hated it. We assured them that a lot of kids on their first trip to Maui do not get that relaxed laid back feel when their toes hit the sand for the first time, nor do they like the look of the really washy gigantic pool that keeps knocking them over.
We arranged a sand-free back up venue down the road just in case we failed completely, then ventured down the beach as planned with the little guy tucked safely in Mom and Dad’s arms, shoes on. It is a very satisfying part of our jobs making clients of all ages feel comfortable – and… success! By the time the sun set on another beautiful day on Maui our toughest little customer was happily playing and splashing his family, knee deep in the water (shoes on).
Here’s a small preview of this family’s portraits on Maui, thank you Khanh and Vi for choosing us as your photographers!
