When Marco, one of my first ever paying clients (and now friends) called me a few weeks ago, I was extremely surprised to hear they were returning to Hawaii. It wasn't long ago his beautiful wife and him had packed up their children (my little ducklings) and moved away on Military orders. Due to some insane circumstances though, the sweet family was getting to come back home to the Aloha state. It's fitting, since they met and got married here and built their new lives together in paradise. I was instructed to not tell a soul, and not to message or call as it was a surprise for his wife that I would be waiting at the airport with my camera in hand to capture their assent on volcanic ground. Rather than blog images, I think the slideshow tells their story perfectly. Leis, friendship, dolls, waiting for luggage, and trying to make arrangements after an 11 hour flight.
