I received a call from my niece Harmony a couple of weeks ago. She bore great news - she was hapai (pregnant)! I was ecstatic!
Harmony is the daughter of my sweet friend Anela, who left our mortal world this past June. This surprising news that Harmony shared with me brought me great joy. She wanted to do a hapai shoot. I happily said, "DONE!"
Unbeknownst to Harmony, her auntie Arna (who is a close friend of Anela's and who actually introduced me to Anela), would be joining us during the shoot! What a fun time we had documenting Harmony during this milestone moment in her life as a woman.
Mahalo, Harmony, for your sweet smile and for allowing us to document you during this special time in your life.
To my dear friend, Anela...what a wonderful job you've done in raising such a beautiful young woman soon to be Mama. Congratulations, dear friend! Thank you for watching over all of us!
