Haani Raine

HAANI9

Since Haani Raine and her mother moved back to Hawaii, I’ve been wanting to photograph her. She’s a tiny little girl from the mainland with strong island roots and a happy personality. Her mother, Rochelle, is one of the strongest, nurturing women I know. Yesterday was Rochelle’s birthday and as a small gift, I did a “Mommy+Me” shoot for her. Enjoy only a few of the best shots…

Birthday at The Study

My mom flew in for my birthday! It’s been 11 years since I’ve spent/celebrated my birthday with her.

This time around, I wanted a chill, relaxing birthday so my mom, family and friends went to The Study, which is a cute, little lounge at The Modern Honolulu hotel, to grab some drinks listen to Yoza & JRoq play some acoustic r&b.

Cheers!

-3Big mahalo to Yoza & JRoq for playing my fave songs last night. Yoza did her rendition of Selena’s “No me queda más” and JRoq was awesome with her rap skills. You can’t beat live, r&b music on the island with these two funny characters.

Thanks to my family and friends for coming out and making me feel special on my birthday!
