Marina came from Tokyo to compete in Heiva San Diego Pageant and I had an opportunity to photograph her and her mom Yumi at Windnsea in San Diego a few weeks back (I was a little behind in my work). Check out some of Marina's pictures and if you are interested in my Polynesian Project check it out at www.michaellagman.com/polynesian-project
Windnsea polynesian photo shootMarina at windnsea in San Diego Marin by the classic Windnsea surfing hut. I love how the picture is framed in this one.
This image was captured as the waves were crashing all about Marina.
Marina had hold this pose for a while because there were a lot of surfers and swimmers we didn't want in the background.
The combination of Marina and the color of the waves really makes the image.
Yumi and Marina did a little dance together and they really look look like they are enjoying themselves.
