Hale Manna always has that special place in my heart! I’d go there in a heartbeat with my camera of course. I wouldn’t mind the distance. It’s magical and it’s true to what it means. Hale Manna is a place of good energy. Every time I leave the place, I’d leave a piece of me. A thought that I’d be back soon. But soon can sometimes take a little while.

Last July, I went there to photograph Ruthie’s family. It was a short family session, but I was so invested in it that I didn’t mind traveling home late. It was also the perfect work vacation to unwind and enjoy food and family. The best light there comes early morning and towards sunset.

When was the last time you had a family photo session?
