Li'i ( l e - e )
- Small, little, tiny.
Li'i comes from my full name, Kaili'i, meaning a small 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 want to see what your favorite little things are and capture them for you.
I was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawai'i. I grew up in such a beautiful place and was raised with such an appreciation for the outdoors. I always loved taking photos. 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. 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 my passion. After two years of school I graduated and decided to move to one of my favorite places on earth, Whistler.
Working with me...
I love taking pictures, and I love taking pictures for people. Many people have trouble being in front of a camera, like myself. Rather then making it a "photoshoot" I like to make it more of an experience. Going to a beautiful place and capturing the scenery and you in that scenery. Weather it's in the forest, on the beach, in the mountains, at your home, in the water, or even under the water.
I will help you along the way but wont necessarily be "posing" you. I want to capture raw moments, the best photos are the ones that just happen, but I will be there to help guide you and make it comfortable by having some fun.
