The O’Rourke Family

This family.  They were a dream to photograph.  And not just because of all that hair.  I’ve known of Sara for some time.  She’s emailed me and always left very kind comments.  I was excited when she booked a session last summer when they were visiting from Kauai.  And then super bummed when she had to cancel.  Thankfully, they were able to reschedule on their most recent trip.

Sara is a Mom*tog.  She’s always taking pictures of her kids.  And what beautiful subjects she has!  Kelta is amazing.  She is the best big sister and also a pro surfer.  At 15.  And she’s practically a mermaid with that hair.  Kellen is a surfer as well and an amazing skateboarder as well.  His mom describes him as a soul surfer.  And Mila is an energizer bunny.  She loves her big sister and is such a free spirit.

I desperately wanted these pictures to be amazing for Sara because I know how much they mean to her.  She’s always behind the camera so to get these pictures with her kids and husband was a big deal.  It can be hard to photograph older kids with their parents.  I get it.  It’s a little awkward for them.  But, this whole family really knew how much it  meant to their mom and they made it happen.

I hope you love these, Sara.  Not just because of the pretty beach and your cute kids.  But because you can see how much they love you in these pictures.  And you can see how much you love them.

They say rain on your wedding day is good luck.  Thankfully it was only a little drizzle on their wedding day, but I think these two have had their share of good luck over the almost 7 years they have been married.  Now, 3 kids later I loved having the chance to finally photograph Alison and Wayde again.  Their kids are all awesome.  Funny and so different from one another.  Their oldest shares a birthday with my boy.  So he might be my favorite.  Don’t tell the others ;)

So this little lady is apparently my nephew’s girlfriend.  And I can see why.  She’s beautiful and also very sweet. And those eyes.  How could you not love her?
