Li'i ( l e - e )
- Small, little, tiny.
Li'i comes from my full name, Kaili'i, meaning a little part of the beach. The little things in life are so important, and my goal is to be able to capture them for everyone to see.
I was born and raised on the beautiful Big Island of Hawai'i. Growing up in such a beautiful place, I have always had an appreciation for the outdoors. For as long as I can remember I have been taking pictures, weather it was with a disposable, my dads camera, or an old kodak I got when I was 10. When I was 16 I got my first DSLR. After taking photos along side my dad, who is also a photographer, and tagging along with other photographers for shoots, I realized that it was more then just a hobby and that I wanted it to become my career.
I moved to Vancouver, Canada after graduating from high school and went off to study Photography at Langara Collage. After two years of school I graduated and decided to move to one of my favorite places on earth, Whistler. I have gone from palm trees and beaches to snowy mountains, surfing to snowboarding and feel so lucky to call two of the most amazing places my homes.
