Runa was visiting from Japan and got in contact with a fellow photographer, he was kind enough to invite me along and I got some killer shots out of it. The timing was pretty rough since it was right around lunch. The light ends up being the harshest at this time of the day and it was no exception for this shoot. Runa powered through that bright sun and so did we, much to my delight the photos turned out better than I could have expected. I wish there were more time with her, but that wouldn’t happen since we caught her at the end of her stay in Hawaii.
