I’ve been working with Kalei for almost ten years now; can you believe it?! We started our relationship back at Cal State Fullerton where we both worked in Media Relations for the volleyball program. Her then-boyfriend Cary would come to games from time to time and I knew from jump that this was the guy for her.
A few years later, they decided to tie the knot and graciously granted me the opportunity to photograph their wedding; one of my first. Since, I’ve been blessed by growing with them professionally as they’ve grown as a family. First came Emalani, and I’ve fortunately been the one to document her every year as she’s grown. Now Emalani’s growing in new ways as a brand new sister to her brand new little brother Benjamin.
After the little guy popped out, I headed over to their home for his first official photo shoot. Emalani was a ball of energy as usual so we took a break to toss a football and tea party it up. She was happy to hold her little bro and help with his baby’s first portraits. Isn’t he a doll baby?! I’m obsessed with his cheeks and his eyes and his rolls and his lips and his nose. Can’t wait to grow with him too!
