Water Development with Kainani

Just like a fish, I have gills instead of lungs. As kids, my brother and I lived in the swimming pool. Kainani has the same love for the water, except she has a bigger “Pool”.

Before Kainani was born, Kimi and I were often asked what name we had chose for her. There were some names on our list, but we wanted to meet her first and see what name would best fit. During Kainani’s first bath at the hospital, we learned the calming effect water had on our baby.

Kainani is the name we chose and in Hawaiian, it means Beautiful Ocean.

Last December Amy and Chris came out to Maui to finalize their wedding plans and we got together to shoot their engagement photos. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone! Today is their wedding day!

I always heard about the “special bond” between a father and daughter. After becoming a father myself, I have a whole new appreciation for the FOTB’s.

It all started when Noelani’s best friend married Jeff’s best friend….

Photobucket

Of course things got more interesting when Noe invited herself on Jeff’s trip to Italy. And on that trip, they realized that there was something more to their friendship.

Six months to the day that Jeff proposed, Noelani said “I do” in Makena.
