Prior to meeting with the Driessen family for a family portrait session at Elua beach I hadn't had much contact. I really had no idea what to expect when I arrived at their condo. There was a scurry of getting ready as I introduced myself to the lovely Anastasia and got acquainted with the family.
As the evening wore on I was thrilled to find that this was not only a beautiful family but that they really knew how to play and laugh together! My favorite part of the shoot was after the sun went down and they began chasing each other around the beach, little Anastasias screams and laughter carrying on the night air. At the end of the shoot I had the nicest time connecting with the family and hearing a little about their lives and getting to know them. I'm for sure looking forward to running into them next time they are on Maui!
