Maui has a lot of meaning for some families who come back frequently to the island to spend quality time with their family. A few weeks ago I met and photographed one such family from San Diego, the Hampsons. Dave, his wife Dahlaine, and their two sons Brian and Jacob have been to Maui five times now and say it is one of their favorite places on earth as it holds many memories and good times between them. Jacob’s girlfriend, Hayley, has joined them the last two times.
“Maui has come to represent family in the truest sense of the word. A trip to Maui is our time to get away from our fast paced lives and relax together in paradise, have fun, and reconnect,” Dave said.
Though they come to do some relaxing, they also pack their Maui vacations with lots of fun activities that have bonded them to the island even more.
“Some of our fondest memories have taken place on this magical island. Our first time snorkeling, swimming with the turtles, hiking through the rain forests to explore waterfalls, taking a leap of faith and jumping off the cliffs and into the water, zip lining with incredible views of Kapalua, and parasailing in Kaanapali are some of the many adventures we have enjoyed on Maui,” Hampson said of what Maui means to their family.
This year Dave and Dahlaine wanted to capture their family’s love of Maui with a family photo session in Wailea.
“The pictures you took of our family certainly help make this another special trip. I think you were able to capture the love and happiness we have together as a family. In the years to come I know we will cherish looking back at all the beautiful pictures you have given us,” Dave said of their Maui photo shoot.
It was lots of fun photographing this adventurous, fun-loving family! Thanks Dave, Dahlaine, Brian, Jacob and Hayley for choosing me as your Wailea family photographer this year!
