Ailey

East West Center

Wow.  I still remember when Jalna and I did Ailey's newborn photos....that was seven years ago!! Jalna usually does her yearly Christmas photos but since her camera has been on the blink she asked if I could fill in instead.  This little girl is hilarious!!  So, so, so cute, and so easy!  Thanks Ailey for being such a good sport, I know you were cold!

The Other Ogata Family...

Baby Makapuu

Wow, this family is hardcore.  I hardly ever get a family agree to do a 7am photoshoot.  I always hope and pray someone would want this time for two reasons...the lighting is good and I have all day to do other stuff, laundry, etc.  I was worried the kids were gonna be grumpy, having to wake up before the sun rises just to take pictures.  But nope!  They were awesome!!!!  The weather wasn't so great either.  Major wind and some sprinkles along the way.  Such troopers!

The Ogatas

Lilioukalani Botanical Garden

Phew!  Missed the rain...Michele said it was dumping rain on the H3 today and was worried that our shoot would be canceled.  It sprinkled a little bit before we started but that was just for good luck.

Jalna's Last Day at HDRS

October 31, 2017

WAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!  It's finally Jalna's last day working with us.  Yup, she's now retired.  It's not the same without her around.  She was a nice break from all the daily crap that we have to deal with.  What are we gonna do now?  Anyways, she didn't take off her sunglasses all day cause she thought she was gonna be bawling the whole time.  She actually did pretty good.  She did all her bawling in private, then she came downstairs to get her farewell hugs.

Take care my friend, I know I'll see you soon so I'm not so sad anymore :)
