It Takes a Family

It takes a family to get a stunning Kauai, Hawaii sunset photo for Before Sundown’s Welcome Page. It takes a family at the Sheraton Kauai Resort to get fabulous photos of Poipu, Waimea Canyon, Wailua Falls, and Koke’e State Park for the gallery.


It takes a very special family, Ted & Kim Robinson, Michael & Laurie Hallak & baby Reagan Hallak & her rubber ducky, to make this blog post something worthwhile to read.

Y’all know I’m Ted’s Mom, Reagan’s Gram Gram, & Laurie’s grandma!(smiles)


Not to single out just one family member’s photographic talents, Ted & Kim took many of the photos, but we have a professional photographer in the family to promote.

Meet Laurie

I love capturing moments that deserve to be remembered. It is just as important to embrace the moment, as it is to reflect on it later! I do what I love and love what I do, and my desire is for my work to resonate with you. If you like my style, I would love to capture those memories that you wish to relive for years to come.

  3. Beautiful photos of Kauai and family. Kids are so photogenic, aren’t they? Even the big grown-up ones. I’d love to go to Kauai. If I head to Hawaii again, that island is next. Happy Weekend, Christine!

      Diana, thanks so much for your visit and comment. Apparently Kauai is the favorite in my family. More outdoor things to do. Love to collect photos of their travels. I have more posts planned for granddaughters. One traveling in Australia, and another returning to NYC. So much fun. Christine

      Greg, thanks so much for your comment! Kinda know what you mean! A lot of older people think of Hawaii as the perfect place to vacation. An easy flight from the west coast & no language barrier. Enjoy your “at home” with those wonderful cats! 📚 Christine

  6. A beautiful post, Christine. I went to Hawaii once, long ago… all by myself, and the first time I had ever been on a plane. What a lovely experience it was. I still think of it as my only “real” vacation. Hugs on the wing.
