Two of my best friends have become mothers within a few months of each other this year! I couldn’t be more excited for both of them 🙂
Najona and I have known each since the 5th grade when she moved to Maui from California. I remember meeting her at recess in school, playing chinese jump rope to pass the time. We would spend the summer days at the beach with our friends playing Rich Man, Poor Man and singing Disney movie ballads. Boy, we were dorks!!
Now we are all grown up… and she is having a baby. Najona and her Love, Kamalu, asked me capture some quiet moments of them in Iao, a valley that holds very special meaning to them.
Two weeks after we took these photos, beautiful baby Lokahi was born!!
