Big Island Sunshine with the Chao family
Back on the Big Island after an awesome family reunion on Oahu! We were camping on the beach and it was great fun — still feeling tired from it all, in fact.
Now I’m back to work — emails, editing, emails, editing — and the cycle continues. But then I thought, “HEY. I should post more pictures on my blog,” so here’s a wonderful session from earlier in the year with the Chao family, hailing from Saskatchewan, Canada. The sun was very bright on this afternoon, giving me some challenges photographically, but it was made up for by the brightness of their smiles.
And that could very well be one of the cheesiest things I’ve ever written. But it’s the cheesy things that are often true. So without further ado —
I wish my tired brain could form better words right now — words to express how thankful I am for everything. For my huge extended family, whom I got to spend the weekend with, and for the families I get to photograph, who share a bit of themselves with me and my camera. And of course, my fiancee, who is wonderfully supportive, kind, and brings stability to my life through laughter and happiness. Thank you so very much!
