For those living in Hawaii, have y’all heard about AMMDI aka Aloha Made Me Do It? Wait why am I even asking that question?! Of course y’all heard or seen that brand at least once. If you’ve been living under a rock or just play games all day and have no clue what AMMDI is, it’s a local lifestyle brand from Hawaii making waves through social media and even possibly a store near you! Reason I’m bringing the brand up is because of this woman right here! Kerah is the HBIC of that brand! She’s currently a fashion major at HCC (Honolulu Community College) and has plans of transferring to FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) in LA to expand her knowledge and skills in the fashion world.
I first met Kerah through my partners, Brandon (BSV) & Kalen (kshotz), on one of AMMDI’s swimsuit shoots. Prior to that, we only chatted lightly through instagram after she saw some of my shots I did with other girls that were sporting one of her 1 piece swimsuits. Then the team and I helped a bit with another shoot for her line and after that I thought, “why haven’t I ask Kerah yet to shoot?” So I asked her one day and she was down for my ideas and here it is!
Wanna see what we cooked up for this shoot? You’ll definitely wanna see the video too! Click on Kerah’s photo above or click here.
This bubbly spirit is Skye aka Kaululani. I don’t even wanna think about or type out her whole name because 1) it’s hella long lol and 2) when she said her full name in person, I got lost in the Hawaiian language like I was back in elementary school just starting to learn about Hawaiian studies lol. Anyway, she reached out to me after noticing my previous shoot with Michaela. I love meeting and working with new people, especially when my work does the advertising for me lol. Right off the bat when we met up at the location, I could tell she was gonna be super chill and fun to work with. Very professional at what she does but also playful that the shoot wasn’t strictly the sound of the camera going off. Get to know more about Skye by checking out the rest of her feature by clicking her photo above or clicking here.
This is Stephanie, aka @mermaidsirenity, one of the mermaids here on Oahu. What started out as a hobby turned into her full time career pleasing people with her mermaid looks and charm at hotels, kids parties, and special events all over the island! I connected with her through instagram, we linked up, and turned out this awesome feature with not only Stephanie herself, but also her husband who came to help out and eat the food I brought from @honolulukitchen lol, and also my team who got footage on video, @brndn.scott & @kalenkeahi. Nothing but chill vibes all afternoon spent at the beach.
