I took my little girl, Jules, to Ko’olau Farmers on this rainy afternoon… one of my favorite places to visit and walk through. We picked out a few new plants to liven up our home for the fall season. Jules expressed pure joy and wonder at the different plants and flowers, often reaching out to touch their leaves and feel their texture. We walked in and out of the greenhouse and through the aisles of flowers, even while the rain sprinkled down on us…

Photos taken mid-January 2018
I have a twin sister, Jena, that I don't get to see as often as I wish! She lives in San Diego, raising and homeschooling her three beautiful girls with her husband. I've watched her grow throughout the years, and I couldn't be more proud of who she is today. She recently visited Hawaii in January to meet my daughter, Julyiana, for the first time. We spent as much time together as we could, meeting up at coffee shops, the museum, and the beach. I had the pleasure of documenting one of our beach days on the North Shore - a place we call our second home. Rarely do I share personal photos that I’ve taken of her her and her family, but today, it's our birthday, and I can't think of a more perfect series of photos that best represents my sister! She is elegant, stylish, beautiful, strong, inspiring, creative, intelligent, and amongst many things, an amazing mother, wife, and sister...
Her daughters: Evangeline, Emaline, and Sandra-Layne.
