the third session from our recent trip to hawaii was for our long tim clients. we are blessed to call them friends, and extended ohana members. they are among the nicest and most genuine people we know. i’m talking about ronnie, giji, jonah, rinnah, and a few new additions, fanci, chulah, and a baby to be named later. that’s right, one our favorite families of all time is about to be and 1. giji and ronnie will soon welcome their third beautiful baby. just hearing that was great news, but we were thrilled when ronnie asked us to do another session with his ohana. we’ve done two others for them, but they were both in san diego. this family portrait session was finally on their home turf, our home away from home, oahu.
in case you’re not getting all the strangely coincidental number three references, there’s the link to get you up to speed.
it’s been a while since the last time we had them in front of our cameras, but they all still look amazing. ronnie’s guns are so big that they are now restricted from all international flights and i wish i could look half as good as giji after having two kids and being prego with another. i’m starting to think she’s related to richard alpert. they did film lost on oahu. coincidence? i think not! jonah is still the funnest kid on the planet. he reminds me a lot of our nephew jake. both of them enjoy running, jumping, spider man, and hamming it up for our cameras. looking through these images, i thought back to the first time we saw rinnah. she was about as big as a boba bubble in a beanie. she’s not much bigger now, but she’s still cuter than a toki doki baby harp seal.
we had a lot of fun on this session, even with the crazy amount of rain. not our rain. hawaii rain. the watery kind.
i hope you enjoy seeing it as much as we loved doing it.
fanci and chulah, ready for action
sure, jonah is getting massive air, but can he do as good of a yoda impression as chulah? look as good you will not.
take a good look chuck norris, you kick like a baby gecko compared to jonah.
ya, they have a swagger wagon. it’s pretty tight.
this is one of my favorite shots of jonah. and no, he’s not in vegas.
you guys make me smile.
this is about the time that a cloud drifted over us and dumped all the rain in hawaii on us for about a minute.
jonah is our favorite menehune.
i love all the smiles here, even jonah’s wild eyed one.
how incredible does giji look?
rinnah loves her mommy. this is her impression of a baby koala.
i think giji and rinnah were yelling, “we’re making the cutest picture ever!”
rinnah put us on the other side of the lens, then took a couple shots of her mom and dad. she’s going to be the next best wedding photographer in hawaii.
of course we also took some shots of ronnie and giji while rinnah was shooting. you don’t get to see hotness like this every day. i love seeing couples that love each other this much.
jonah was wearing our sandals. actually, they weren’t ours. they belonged to one of his friends. they had a slippa mix up the last time they were playing. either way, i need to get a pair.
see that rain in the background. ya, that’s the rain that got us.
it was so good seeing you all again ronnie, giji, jonah, and rinnah. can’t wait to meet your new addition! the bigger the ohana, the better. hope to see you all again really soon. catching up with you over dinner at ba-le sandwiches and bakery after the shoot was awesome, but we wish we could have hung out more. next time we are definitely hitting up aloha salads. that place looks so good! until then, stay safe. we love you!
