Here’s a sneak peek of day in studio with us and the Scanlan family @nilescanlan for Cultural portraiture. You have such a beautiful family Nile. And your children will always know their heritage is important to you and Eldon. They will treasure these photos. Such a privilege. Thank you ❤️

Come behind the scenes with me on the Tuimaunei Family Photo Shoot and see what I see. ⠀

I was going to write about how I photographed this family a few years ago and how much has changed since then but instead I want to talk about the relationship her son Siona has with his Papa! Soriah’s father only came along to help with the kids but little did he know we were going to get a few shots of him. Watch the video you will see Siona crying for his Papa and his Papa patiently waiting on the side to get him back in his arms. The ONLY smile I got during the entire shoot from him was when his Papa was holding him. They have such a strong bond! ⠀

@sssoriaht and @5uaesi YOU HAVE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL FAMLY and it is such an honor to photograph and document all the changes over the years. I can’t wait to photograph your family again and to be able to photograph your children as they grow into teenagers and into adulthood. ⠀

It is not the honor that you take with you, but the heritage you leave behind

Taina Aloiana Toalei-Tukuafu || On saturday this young lady played 4 rugby games then rushed over to Kahuku High School Tausala Night and killed it. She represented her family with such grace and pride♡

These beautiful Tuimaunei sisters in their cultural portrait. I can’t wait to see their growth in a few years. But this moment is forever captured beautifully in time by @mapuanareed. Thank you to my assistant @ilovezeekz for taking on this day for me. You did great😘. @sssoriaht your girls will appreciate this photo in years to come🌺.

The Tuimaunei Sisters. Being able to photograph and document these girls as they grow up has been such a huge honor for me. I get to see them every couple of years but every time they walk through my studio doors and sit before my camera I see so much change in them. @sssoriaht @5uaesi

Maternity Portrait of My beautiful cousin Teisa Vea in her maternity shoot. Tongan & Maori mixed attire. Yes she is without a necklace because of our Polynesian superstitions 😉. It was such a privilege dressing this Mother-to-be. Our fathers are first cousins but they are BESTIE first cousins 😂. I’m so happy for you, Teisa I can’t wait to see your bundle of joy. 🌺 #Mataele’s #TonganMaori #TauiviDesigns #MapuanaReedPhotography @hafekasi @crystal.desaulniersvea @tana_vea_

Mixing cultures. Maori and Tongan. Beautiful Teisa. You can't tell from this shot but there is actually a baby bump under there. I love that this timeless portrait will forever represent her becoming a mother. When she is a grandmother she will look at this portrait of herself and remember when she carried that baby within her.

Throwback to this timeless shot. I named this piece “Apia In Love”. Awesome collaboration with Mapuana Reed Photography. With the beautiful Miss American Samoa 2018 Matauaina To’omalatai. This was actually before she received the crown. She was deserving then and now. One of my firsts and one of my faves❤️. “Apia In Love”. @matauaina @mapuanareed

Samoan Cultural Portrait of 5 year old Iyanah. ⠀

As a Mother... THIS is what I want on the walls of my home. This is what I want for my daughter to have in her home when she has her own family. What type of portraits do you want of your children? ⠀

I am looking to photograph more cultural portraits with children. If you would like something like this for your home contact me through my website at www.MapuanaReed.com⠀

Thank you @_nikihanani_ and Paul for bringing the kids to the studio for their portraits.
