Alex’s First Birthday Party

Ariel and Brendon got married two years ago. I was honored to be their wedding photographer. Now looking at the next chapter of their union I was witnessing another very special day in their life last Saturday. Their first child Alex was celebrating with all the Ohana and friends her first birthday.What a party ! See for yourself that takes a town ( of Hilo) to raise a child….




The arrival of Mom and Alex. The surprise party is waiting…

Alex’s expression was visible. She came to the colorful room with balloons , candies, decorations, life music and even her own larger then life-size portrait on the wall! That portrait is going to stay in someone’s bedroom.



The greetings began, hand shaking and ” give me five” was going around and around.


Young grandmother Yvonne got her turn to hold Alex finally, what a joy!

Few photo picks on extraordinary seafood buffet. Home baked goods came here too.

The youngest and most important members from the guest’s list arrived , ready to party.

Applauding the crowd.



After the meal and hugs it was definitely time for nap.


And the moment we’ve been all waiting for…
