Raised by a fashion executive and a general contractor, Kenna Reed was born on the island of O’ahu. Spending her summers playing on her family flower farm in Japan, traveling the world with her dad, and attending fashion weeks in New York and Paris with her mom, Kenna was able to develop a global understanding of the world around her at a young age. She spent time in schools in Massachusetts and Oakland, absorbing energy from the passions of those around her, and growing her appreciation of art and music. On a summer internship at MA’O Organic Farms in Waianae, Kenna realized how much she missed Hawai'i and decided to move home.

Wishing to be an inspiration to her daughter, Kenna decided to take a break from school and take a leap of faith by pursuing her passions. It was then that she found herself in the heart of Kaka’ako working as a freelance art assistant and photographer. In her free time, Kenna finds herself gardening, working on her photography business and surrounded by nature, hiking mountains and hunting waterfalls.
