I absolutely loved photographing the Pierantozzi family from California. Their son is definitely a firecracker and a handsome hapa boy (Hapa means half and half nationality in Hawaiian). For the past two years, the Pierantozzi’s celebrate Mia’s (mom) birthday by coming to Hawaii for a vacation. This year her birthday present was delayed by a month but the important thing is, they made it to Hawaii!
We met at the lobby of the Turtle Bay Resort and our original plan was to take pictures at Makapu’u Beach but the strong trade winds rearranged our plans so we decided to take their pictures near the horse stables. Their son, Bryce, was very curious to see and touch the sand here in Hawaii because where they come from, the sand is a bit harder and easier to walk in. He was mesmerized by the way his feet would disappear into the soft white sand, LOL!
It was a fun morning and I can’t wait to see them again next year hopefully. Mahalo Chris, Mia and Bryce!
