It is always such an honor when you get to be a part of a first family photo session. Capturing memories and creating an unforgettable experience is what we thrive to achieve daily and for the Barrajan Family we were able to do just that.

This family of 3 decided to visit Maui for the very first time from their Northern California home. When I met Esme she said they haven’t been able to get family photos taken since their daughter was born. This was their first time traveling with their 4 year old daughter Esme and thought Maui would be the a great opportunity to have a family photo session.


Warming up to their first family photo session.

They were a little nervous in the beginning and weren’t sure what to expect. They had several questions including what to wear and the best time of day to book their session. I made sure to answer all their questions and make their experience as fun and light hearted as possible.

The family had such a good time while I took them to several different areas ensuring they had a variety of backgrounds and poses to choose from as well as several candid shots in each area. As they began to warm up in front of the camera their personalities began to shine. Two parents became young lovebirds, a bashful toddler became a lively and spirited four year old, and my lens was capturing the love and affection between this lovely family of three.

When they were invited back the next day to view their photos they were completely excited and so happy with their pictures and the memories we were able to capture.

Family Fun

A nervous family finds out how much fun a photo session can be in front of our lens.

Being able to be a part of such a great experience that they will cherish forever is one of the most rewarding gifts. It is what makes our job here at Blinnk Photography so special.
