About Us
kauai photographers the meaning of aloha When visiting Hawaii, you will often be greeted or sent on your way with a warm 'Aloha'! But what does the word really mean? It commonly will be used in expressing love and in greetings and farewells. But it means so much more and truly is a way of life here in Hawaii, often referred to as 'The Aloha Spirit". We wanted to dive in a little deeper and share with you the beautiful meaning behind this word, so you can have a new appreciation for it when visiting Hawaii and take this Aloha Spirit home and sprinkle it throughout your life. Aloha is a way of life, a foundation. It is the essence of communication. From speaking from the heart and connecting with others. To have patience in our conversations and building relationships based on love. And the key to it, and everything is Love; to love one another. To live with Aloha, it is all about living with Love.

         A “Akahai” meaning kindness, to be expressed with tenderness

L “Lokahi” meaning unity, to be expressed with harmony

               O “Oluolu” meaning agreeable, to be expressed with pleasantness

      H “Haahaa” meaning humility, to be expressed with modesty

              A “Ahonui” meaning patience, to be expressed with perseverance

So when people first come to our islands, that is the first word they often hear. Even if they don't understand the depth of it, it does not matter, just the fact that they are hearing it and absorbing the Aloha Spirit has a powerful effect. From the years of being on Kauai, we often hear visitors speaking of how amazing they feel here, and this magic that the islands have, and how everyone was so loving to them -  they have experienced Aloha.

But did you ever think that you can take that Aloha Spirit home with you, and ask yourself 'How am I able to express that spirit of love in every moment?' And cultivate that in your daily life. I promise you, nothing but good things will come.

This is just scratching the surface of Aloha and to write this blog post trying to define Aloha, comes with such an honor and respect for this ancient way of life.  So before we leave you, we wanted to share another layer of this beautiful way of life.

alo - sharing, in the present

ha - breath of life

The idea of Aloha is that you are in another persons spiritual presence exchanging the breath of life.

So as you can see there is really something special about this word and our way of living here in the islands that we all can learn from and put into practice in our daily lives. The Aloha Spirit has the power to make our world a better place, because who doesn't feel better when Aloha is shared with them?
