I actually cried while editing these. Mostly because this family is so special to me. Their Mom is my oldest friend. We started 1st grade together here on the Big Island 40+ years ago, and have been friends ever since. It has been so amazing to know her and to be inspired by her courageous and creative spirit throughout the years. It had been awhile since we had seen each other, and I was so excited to have the opportunity to reconnect. I especially loved seeing her gorgeous children again, all grown up. It was so fun to be able to hang out with them and photograph their beautiful family. I loved every minute!
