Aloha Spirit Comfort - The Umezu Family's Maui Portraits

There are some Maui Family Portraits that stand out for us...this is one of those times. The Umezu Family has a both heart breaking and inspiring story to tell. This stunning land holds a special place in their hearts as it was the location of their last trip as a family of four. After their beloved youngest, Charlotte, passed away a year ago, the incredibly strong Minnesota family returned here to gather on the stunning shore and pay tribute to a life taken too soon. Though young Charlotte had fought a tough battle since the day she was born, she is at peace now while her spirit lives on in those that love her. To honor the journey they have all been on, the Umezu Family founded the non-profit,, and is now helping others benefit from the lessons they've learned and, most importantly, spreading the joy for life to everyone they meet. That dedication to finding happiness and being there for those facing difficult times is what allows this tireless trio to carry on in the face of tragedy. Fantastic big sister Sophie is a prime example of that. Despite enduring one of the hardest things any one can face at any age, she is a ray of sunshine with a smile as bright as the day is long. What a character! We were so honored to have been invited in to the lives of the Umezu Family and learn about the amazing things they are accomplishing in the wake of such loss. Thank you!!! We hope the Aloha Spirit forever watches over you three, and Charlotte, and that you keep one another close in your hearts. You are an inspiration to us all, thank you for the work you're doing.
Take Care & Warm Aloha!!!
