A family portrait – make a memory

On Kauai, photographing families are one of my favorite sessions as a photographer. I love to capture the love and individuality within this dynamic. The little girl in this family had the sweetest pose and it melted my heart. It’s really a privilege for me to meet families from all over the world, from all different backgrounds,…

Kauai Family Photography | Memories of Kauai

As I reflect over the past 18 years in business it has truly been a privilege to capture the dynamics and emotions within hundreds of families in photographs.  During my last 6 years as a photographer on Kauai, I’ve met families who have journeyed to this beautiful island to vacation and make memories together.  For some it has been their first time and for others…

Kauai Family Photography

Kauai is such a wonderful place for families to come and celebrate a special event. Kal turned 80 ( he doesn’t look a day over 70) and his family came from all corners of the globe to celebrate and honor this man.  Through the gusty wind and the threat of rain, sons, daughters, partners, and…

Kauai family photography

In my photo sessions I meet couples of all ages from all cities and backgrounds.  Every couple has (and  often does) have their own story to tell.   Some are in a new relationship. A newly married couple celebrating the beginning of their life together on their honeymoon. Other couples celebrate relationships that have stood…

Boudoir Photography

I recently took time and scheduled several boudoir photography sessions. I held off on doing this for a while because I wanted to shoot something that was more tasteful than tacky. No 50 Shades stuff. Not a lot of props or lame poses. I was able to find a couple of near empty beaches, a…

My favorite kauai wedding photography spots

As the seasons shift from summer to winter on Kauai, I reflect on the portrait and wedding photography I’ve been doing this past year and the wonderful clients I’ve had the privilege of meeting. Here on the Garden Isle of Kauai we’re beyond blessed to be literally surrounded by many of the most unadulterated, pristine,…

My favorite beach for kauai wedding photography

As the seasons shift from summer to autumn on Kauai, I can reflect on the portrait and wedding photography I’ve been doing and the wonderful clients I’ve had the privilege of meeting. One of my favorite beaches is Anini Beach on Kauai’s North Shore. It has some private or near private spots which have beautiful…

Kauai family photography at hanalei bay

As I continue to photograph families on Kauai I’m often drawn to Hanalei Bay. When I photographed these two young men from Canada I was able to feel the connection I always seek.  It was a wonderful experience. Great kids.           Please view my portfolio of children’s photography at www.rhondaforsberg.com or…

A Kauai wedding to remember

A young, energetic couple from SoCal found their way to the beaches of Kauai on a Wednesday afternoon. I was so happy they chose me as their photographer. We immediately connected and had some fun on the beach and in the gardens of the Kauai Marriott. Congratulations B & A. 

dance me to the end of love

“Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on.  Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long”. Oh Mr. Cohen and his way with words.  The next day we went to one of the most beautiful and spiritual places on all of Kauai, Maha’ulepu. There were tears of joy and laughter as…

first comes love

Nick and Stephanie came to the beautiful island of Kauai to say their wedding vows. The day before their ceremony we spent some photography time having a little fun with their engagement session.

Last Saturday I spent an enjoyable part of the day photographing a new model. She was fresh and open to trying some new things and for me it was a kick experimenting with different types of light and textures and even rendering a few images in black and white. Thanks Ms. Catania for a job…

I met with a young couple from Chicago yesterday. The place where we photographed was a bit of a muddy red-dirt challenge, especially for me, but we made it. Working in a place surrounded by trees and the sound of a stream rushing passed you isn’t bad. Thank you J & K
