New Year's Celebration

New Year's Celebration

Instead of Christmas photos, this family wanted something a little bit more fun!  They decided they wanted to ring in the New Year with some fun and playful family photos.  They got all dolled up and we had all sorts of props with us and headed out to one of the most glamorous hotels on Maui.  From beautiful handmade haku leis, balloons, glitter and party hats this family sure knows how to ring in the New Year in style!  Thank you for choosing Courtney Clark Photography.

These two boys will melt your heart instantly! This was the first time the boys had their pictures taken together and they will now be able to look back at these pictures for years to come.  There books to be read, naughty and nice signs - you can tell who was naught and who was nice ;), and presents to for the boys to indulge.  They were chasing each other around, trying to get the little one to sit still and the giggles they shared between the two of them filled the room.  Thank you for choosing Courtney Clark Photography.

Hoewa'a Family

Hoewa'a Family

The Hoewa'a family has suffered an terrible loss this past year yet nothing can separate their love for each other.  We were scheduled for a family portrait last year, however, a family member is now home with our Heavenly Father.  A year later, we were able to finally find a sunny day between all the rainy days Maui has been having.  The whole family showed up and we practically had the beach to ourselves and by the end the grandchildren needed to play in the sand and get into the water.  Who can blame them, it’s Maui!  Through thick and thin you can feel the love and bond between this family and can separate them or their love for one another.  

I found out that their last name - Hoewa’a in Hawaiian means canoe paddler.  The most amazing part of this portrait session was during a photo where everyone was looking up to Heaven, a paddler was gliding across the ocean in that exact moment signifying that their Father they lost last year was right there with them! Thank you for choosing Courtney Clark Photography.

Nick and April were referred to Courtney Clark Photography by some mutual friends and former clients.  As we walked down to the beach, we stopped in a grassy field to start the session and within seconds the beautiful Alana was off running and we couldn't keep her still.  As the evening progressed so did the chasing and running after Alana!  The boys were so patient and wonderful models.  Thank you so much for trusting Courtney Clark Photography to capture your family photos and I know you will cherish them for years to come.

Kevin and Kelsey just got married on the mainland and ventured to Kauai and Maui for their honeymoon.  They had found Honolua Bay on a prior trip and knew this would be perfect for their honeymoon pictures.  These two lovebirds were head over heals for each other, Kevin was such a gentlemen helping Kelsey through the jungle as she rocked her heels.  Wishing you a lifetime of love, joy and happiness.  Congratulations and thank you for choosing Courtney Clark Photography.

Kelsey and her family were on their way to Maui and wanted to capture their family while here on vacation.  Kelsey had just come back from a vacation in Mexico and was ready for some fun on Maui!  They were fortunate enough to have her parents and brother join them as well.  They boys were filled with energy and hard to keep still but at the end of the session they were given cupcakes for their birthdays that are just around the corner.  Nate and Kelsey, thank you for choosing Courtney Clark Photography.

The Irwin family was recommended to me by their former babysitter who I am dear friends with.  They are on vacation from Arizona and the Irwin family has spent their time on Maui hanging out by the pool and the beach but Mom's one request for some family pictures.  It rained the night before and it was cloudy in the morning but we woke up early and ventured to Baby Beach for a morning session and we had the beach to ourselves.  Thank you so much Irwin family for choosing Courtney Clark Photography and hope you enjoyed your time on Maui!

I was so fortunate to walk into this couple's lives and so honored that they have become wonderful friends!  I met John and Roberta seven years ago, we used to live next to each other and they took me under their wing as I was new to the island.  I was so blessed to be able to capture them celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.  It's a rare occasion these days to celebrate 25 years of marriage, however, John and Roberta share something more than just love...they share each other's souls.  John and Roberta's love is inspiring and there was not a dry eye in the house.  I hope that my husband and I aspire to share the love that John and Roberta have for each other.  Thank you for choosing Courtney Clark Photography.
