|June 2007 – I met Lani and her mother Leesa by the beach in Kapa’a, Kauai Island, one evening right before sunset (hence the dark photos). I introduced myself and talked about our project. The mother-daughter duo were extremely sweet and receptive. They both modeled their feet, even though it was getting dark. The next morning I saw them again at the same spot. Only this time the younger daughter, Lexi, was also present and she too modeled her feet. In addition, the girls’ grandmother, Leesa’s mother, was also present but she didn’t model hers.
Lani is 19 years old and is a college student in Texas, majoring in studio art. She had a very sweet disposition and beamed positive energy. Lani wears size 7 shoes.
