High School Senior photo | Beach in Oahu, Hawaii
Alessandra and her family were here visiting their relatives who live here in Hawaii. Since she was here in such a beautiful place, Alessandra saw this as a great opportunity to have her high school senior photos taken. The place they are from is totally different from here- there are no beaches and tropical plants. She also able to add a beautiful Hawaiian accessory after she was given a pretty hand-made tiara flower from her family friends. It helped make her so excited for the photo shoot.
We decided the location would be at Bikini Beach. Not only does it have the island beach and mountain background we were looking for, but it had tree swings, pretty flowers, and plants. I thought that this would be the best place, that captured Hawaii’s beauty perfectly, that would be just right for her senior pictures.
She was really shy at the beginning and confessed to me that she did not have the confidence to smile naturally, especially in front of the camera. So I let her run, spin around, swing, and go chase the waves. As she did that, her beautiful smile started to come out. In spite of the many requests I made for things for her to do for the camera (most that required a lot of energy) she was tough and willing to do anything after that.
At the end of the session her family was so nice and took me to Country Rides and treated me to an acai bowl. You might already know by now this is one of my favorite local desserts:) And they extended the invitation to my husband and I to visit them if we ever have a chance. I love making new friendships and love the many experiences brought to me through photography.
