kaipo81 This is Macy. She's a 3rd grader at the school where my wife teaches. As a way to raise funds, the school holds an auction once a year. Many people contribute time and resources to make it a success. This year Macy's parents bid for a photo shoot with me. All proceeds go to the school. And Macy did great! 1d

kaipo81 It's been said, we fear what we don't understand. But, how can one fear what isn't fully understood? By that definition, it seems fear is irrational. And the appropriate response is fearless inquiry. 5d

kaipo81 I love baby feet. These little nubs belong to Clark. They remind me of my children's feet when they were that age. When you could nibble on them. Before they developed their own unique odor. 6d

kaipo81 This is Kellianne. She loves Batman and all things Lana Del Rey. She has an amazing story and is a beautifully unique individual. It's her senior year of high school and I've been privileged to capture, not only her portrait but, a piece of her life as her mentor. Thanks for being who you are Kelli! 1w

kaipo81 Had a great time shooting this beautiful couple with @drvong! Mike and Jade were so natural, not only in front of the camera but, with each other. Evidence that, when you love someone commitment is easy. And when you love what you do, work is fun. #dowhatyoulove 1w

kaipo81 We've heard it said, "time flies." This is a recent version of a photo I took two years earlier at the same place. Perhaps, it's not that time flies but, that we've forgotten to embrace it. 2w

kaipo81 He told us about the bamboo in Bali, where he grew up. He told us about the tall trees he would climb and take naps in as a child. He told us that his father served in both the Dutch and Indonesian military and was once captured by the Japanese. It was more than a walk through the park today but, a walk through the life of an amazing man. Happy Birthday Dad! 3w

kaipo81 Say hello to the Wuysang family. Arvy, first-year medical student, husband, and new father. Ailen, soon to be RN, wife, and new mother. And of course Clark Avery, their handsome little son. Had a great time photographing but, really just hanging out, with this beautiful family! #rhetoricphotography 4w

I don't even know the name. But, if I did, well really, what's it to you? There's a blaze of light in every word. It doesn't matter which you heard. The holy or the broken Hallelujah...Hallelujah." - Leonard Cohen.

kaipo81 We live in a curious culture indeed. We like to get away and bring our conveniences with us. We seek peace by filling our time with as many activities as possible. Don't get me wrong, I take full advantage of the conveniences life offers. But, often at the expense of true satisfaction. 1mon

kaipo81 Hi my name is Brandon. I admit, much of the time I have no idea what I'm talking about. But, in talking about it, I get closer to knowing. This portrait was taken and edited by my sister @darsss. She has an amazing eye, I know that. Check out her feed and give her a follow! 1mon

kaipo81 Dear wanderer, where will you go next? When you have covered the earth where will you go then? In your journey, may you take your time. May you not be rushed by the lure of every new destination but, be shaped by the fullness and wonder of where you are. 1mon
