Meet Erica, Noz + little miss Isa -- a fun bunch with cool names originally from Chapel Hill, North Carolina (heyyoooo!) and residents of O'ahu who have been together for twelve years. TWELVE YEARS! GAHHHH I love it. With her warm smile, Erica is vivacious, fun and full of heart as she works as a social marketing director for a federal grant for Hawai'i girls with emotional trauma while Noz is busy working' on people's grills running his own practice in endodontics (or practicing his seasoned soccer moves--I hear he's got skill). Young travelers who adore the island + beaches, little Isa has an affection for Hello Kitty (who doesn't?) and has been on over 15 flights! I am always grateful and in awe of the people I get to meet through this incredible business venture, and the Yamauchis are no exception. Sweet, playful and full of love, these three have a bit of child-like wonderment that I admire. And man! What a well-behaved daughter they have! I could just eat her UP!
Erica + Noz--thank you for hoping in front of my camera this holiday season. It was a pleasure getting to photograph your stinkin' adorable family and even more fun to get to know you better and share great conversation over dinner. I like ya'll! :)
