One of the reasons why I love working as a photographer in Hawaii is that I can experience different cultures. I heard in Hawaii, people celebrate baby's first birthday very big, and it is called "Keiki" party! In Japanese, "Keiki" means "cake" so I thought it was a perfect double meaning since in Hawaiian, Keiki means "kids".
November 19 Saturday, Jaden had his first birthday cerebrated by his lovely parents, Sunshine and Tio, and lots of friends and families. Throughout the day, I could see how much Sunshine and Tio love their special one. Their smiles were so charming, and they made me want to become a parent like them! I hope in the future, Jaden will see these photos and feel that he is truly loved by his parents and everybody around him.

Sunshine, Tio, and Jaden welcomed every guest at the entrance. "Jadeeeeen~! Look at the camera~!! Cheese!"

Jaden showed the nicest smile when he was in his grandpa's arms!

Jaden's godparents were there to celebrate his first birthday. "Happy birthday!"

Jaden was practicing how to show his age with his finger. "I am one year old!"
