Five years after taking her daughter’s picture, photographer Victorina Kioa has been winning praise from the online community after she shared it on Facebook.
The photograph of her daughter Bernadette Misipa, who turned 20 this month, has been described as “amazing” and “beautiful.”
Another called it “very smart.”
“This picture should go into photographs competition. It is so beautiful,” one fan wrote.
Kioa, who is not a professional photographer, has been urged to enter the image in competitions.
The photograph was taken at Makaha’a.
Bernadette’s father is Dr Sione Ngongo Kioa, governor of Tonga’s National Reserve Bank.
