Ohana means family!

While in LA for Thanksgiving I had the privilege of spending time with the wonderful SD Ohana Family!
Now if you are anything like me, you have seen and memorized every cartoon Disney movie (and if they are musical the songs as well) so it came as no shock that the whole time I spent with them I kept randomly blurting out... (in a high pitched voice) "Ohana means Family!"

yup, Im a dork... I know this. ;)

Anyway, Most of you already know them but if you don't.... meet my friends the Baxters...





This would be Rain... David and Kimi's little model. She made my life easy! haha






And this would be the photo rockstar April. Look out world because this gal is the photo dark horse that will put us all out of jobs some day! ;) This whole time I thought she was like 14 or 15 but NO... I made a fool of myself. She's 20! oops.... sorry April love. Anyway, she is quite the little shooter, check her out!




Mr. Ohana himself.






And Mrs. Ohana.




and a totally random moment that I just loved. I think its because this is what I saw several times when the camera wasn't pointed at them and it sums up the two of them to me :)







THE END :)

(ps) they shot OUR family photos too! but you will have to wait for those until mom gets to see them ;)

Missi is right, Kimi is one elusive creature, impossible to get in front of the camera :) These are fantastic you captured them perfectly :
