FOTU FAMILY 08















Nel and Irene are two of our closest friends.  You might remember I did a shoot with Baby Milania right after she was born and look at her now.... all grown up.  Although we are all busy and we don't get to see each other that often... you guys know we love you and any Friday night belongs to you and the B.T.G.  ALL OUR LOVE~

Thanksgiving Dinner....

I took a pretty big break from the computer. I haven't done that for a long time.  I want to thank my family for humoring me.  Everyone was so hungry and I made them wait until I got a few pictures for posterity (and the food blog).  All homemade, except the donuts of course....I LOVE GLAZED DONUTS.  I dream about them and could easily eat a box solo.  YUM!
My Dad and brother put so much time into the dinner...as always.  It is a great service and sacrifice that they make with a smile.  This year I am grateful for the wonderful example my dad has been in our lives.  We (his children and grandchildren) are his life.  Since I can remember he has taken time to let us know how much he loves us, not only in word and deed.....but with time....TIME, PRECIOUS TIME.  Many a Sunday he comes over before we are home from church and is busy preparing a meal that he can share with his kids. He's the first to arrive, and the last to eat!  
I know you work hard Dad.  I know you do it for us.  I know that I will never, never be able thank you for all you do.  I only hope that you know that!

Team Tuakoi























The Tuakoi's are off in California, enjoying a nice warm Thanksgiving vacation. They hit the road seconds after we finished the shoot. I hope they get a chance to see the blog while they are out of town. The two kids had me laughing from the word "go."  I think Spencer had a little crush on my assistant Sila, and we had Mele do the Harlem Shake a few times to get her to defrost.   I just wanted to squeeze both their cheeks.  Thank you Sheena and Nick for being such a fun family!  It was a pleasure to meet you and I'm happy to call you both friends!!

ANA and JUNIOR KEIAHO.. YOU DID IT!!






















Ana is our little sister...Well "technically" she is Nick's sister...but that's if your being "technical." On Saturday we drove to Logan for Junior and Ana's sealing in the Logan Temple. In between chasing my kids around I got a few shots of this family's special day. After the sealing there was a nice little open house at the chapel, with some yummy Mexican food. We love you both so much and are so proud of you. The sky is the limit for you and your family and you know if there is ever anything we can do for you, don't hesitate to ask! YYYEAAH Keiaho family!! I have a few more pix to post...I KNOW, I KNOW.....where in the world in JONI JAY? My keyboard is on it's last juice. So I'm on my way to the store to get some batteries. BE BACK SOON!
