Pre-Father’s Day Photo Shoot: Ohana Style 🌸 June 9th!

father's day invite

We’re thrilled to invite you to our Annual Pre-Father’s Day Photo Shoot on Sunday, June 9th, from 10 am to 1 pm at AleSmith Brewing! We had an absolute blast last year, and so we’re bringing back the Island Style vibes to celebrate your entire ‘Ohana, especially the Makuakāne (Dad) figure in your life! In case you missed last year’s ‘Ohana Style Celebration – CLICK HERE.

Throw on your Aloha shirt, gather your ‘Ohana, and come experience the Magic of Hawaii as we honor the dads, grandpas, uncles, or special individuals in your life who deserve some love and aloha!

We recognize that families come in all shapes and sizes, so no matter what your family dynamic looks like, you’re invited to this beautiful celebration. Whether you’re a single mom raising your child alone, widowed, or part of a two-mom household, a family is a family. In Hawaiian, ‘Ohana’ means family, transcending blood ties to encompass heart and connection, embracing loved ones and close friends as if they were family. ‘Ohana’ is like the warm embrace of a hula dance, where love, support, and unity create an unbreakable bond that lasts forever.

Check out this preview of last year’s event on CBS8.
