Alden and his sister being well into their adulthood, and wanted to gift this moment for their parents but just hadn’t had the opportunity. Mom and dad lived in Vegas, siblings lived in California and the years continued to click on by. Somehow, he found my info on the world wide web and we got to work.
After a lovely Zoom, we set up a time and date and I met with them in Seal Beach. After so many moments of “we’re so shy….” the giggles came out and shyness turned into a beautiful moments that are now kept memories.
Despite being so far away from one another, you could instantly feel the tightness of this Ohana. Towards the end, Alden pulled out a blanket his grandmother had made which instantly brought their shoot to an even more beautiful place. Having her memory wrapped around her children, grandchildren and great grand child as the waves crashed behind them, had to have brought memories of their native Hawaiian home and I felt so grateful to have shared it with them all. Aloha, Sagucio Fam!
