G.I.F.T.E.D Football Camp

We (actually my boys I tagged along) attended the neatest camp this past weekend.. It was called G.I.F.T.E.D.. Put together by former and current NFL football players. The camp was great, well organized and brought our Polynesian youth kids together in a way it should always be.. They were taught things on the field as well as in the classroom, showing the kids that one can not be accomplished without the other. It was good to see the youth learning, laughing and playing together and acting like we were ALL related.. (even though I think we are.. LOL).. Thank you Reno Mahe, Deuce Lutui and Fahu Tahi for an unforgettable football camp.. Oh and I cant forget the members of PALE and HYPE for the unlimited hours of volunteer work put towards this camp.. Cant wait til next year..

Tefua and Kauata Bloomfield plus 9

I have known the parents of this beautiful family FOREVER.. The mom Kauata is a K-Town girl although she has converted over to Hunter High, we forgive her because her husband played there and ALL her boys play for them now.. (We forgive you Kauata because we know K-Town is in your heart..LOL) This was probably the easiest family to shoot, and Yes they have 9 kids.. Fua took control of the shoot and started setting everyone up from the beginning.. (I'll talk to you later about that Fua.. LOL) .. The boys are as athletic and handsome as daddy, and the girls are as caring and gorgeous as momma ..
Thank you for letting me take your official first family picture with ALL your kids.. I feel honored..

Introducing an upcoming talent Thomas Satini....

Thomas Satini is an upcoming STAR.. Remember his name everyone..
Thomas loves to write songs, poems and short stories he is an amazing street/hiphop dancer, he sings, acts and plays the guitar and drums and football... But all this comes 2nd to his love of art.. His goal is to write/produce music.. Right now he is pursing his acting career (because his mama says to) LOL.. All of this and he is still a straight A student..
Coming from a single parent home Thomas has taken on the role as the MAN of the house, and trust me he can handle it all, he is very calm in nature, and will triumph through everything life has in store for him.. Thank you Thomas for allowing me to see your talent first hand and to take pictures of you as you begin your journey to a goal that only YOU can reach..
