I met Kalei, gosh, back in 2002, I think. Long before I had any idea that this photography thing would become what it has to me…
A short time later, she was engaged to marry her love, Cary. Not yet having much wedding experience under my belt, I was thrilled at the opportunity to shoot their wedding. That was back before I had a site or a blog. Maybe I’ll post some images from their wedding sometime. It was one of my first.
Then they got pregnant. And they called me to photograph the first portrait session of their first daughter, Emalani. Then they called me again when she was six months old. And again when she turned one. And again. And again.
And I love it! First of all, this entire family is FAB so it’s always a pleasure to spend time with them. But beyond that, it’s been amazing to watch their family grow. Emalani has the most spirited personality. She is a complete joy to observe and photograph. Capturing her little essence is like watching a heartwarming story unfold. Every little smile, smirk and gleam in her eye pulls on the heart strings and leaves you thankful for the images to remember her by until you see her again…
