Can you believe this gorgeous forest is in Hawaii?! I had the pleasure of doing family photos with this gorgeous couple and their cute kids, but you know I had to do some "mom and dad" photos while we were out here. I always make a point to do some photos of mom and dad because many times they're so focused on the kids (as they should be) and I want them to have memories of their marriage in the gallery as well. It may be the couples' photographer in me but I love to capture love, and those moments are just as important and the whole family images I capture. This family wanted to have a forest location and you know I was down to have a change of scenery from Oahu's gorgeous beaches. So they followed me to this location and we hopped off the scenic path and found these lovely backgrounds. Let this be a reminder to stop off the beaten path every now and then, you never know what's around you until you go on an adventure!
