For those of you who have followed along on my journey as a photographer for a while, you will notice that I’ve photographed this beautiful couple multiple times! These two are dear friends of my husband and I, and when we took a friend-cation to Maui, of course I knew we’d do their maternity session there! I can’t wait to get some sweet newborn photos of their baby boy when he makes his debut! The last photo in this post was taken in Maui’s tropical “Jungle” at Honolua Bay and I must say, it is one of the most beautiful and fascinating places I’ve ever been. I hope you enjoy these sun soaked pictures as much as I do!
While my husband and I were planning our vacation to Hawaii with a few other couples in our friend group, I decided to do some research into beautiful spots for photos on Maui. One of the couples who came with us was pregnant with their first, so I wanted a great place to get some maternity photos for her! I came across this wonderful photographer, Jess Johnson, who told me about some great spots to check out. A few weeks later Jess asked if I would do her and her husband’s photos while I was on the island since they literally hadn’t had their photos taken since their wedding 12 years ago! It was such a pleasure soaking up the beautiful Hawaiian morning with these two and as you can see, they are still beaming with love for each other after all these years! This is what my Hawaiian photo dreams are made of!
I had the pleasure of photographing the Markman’s maternity photos a couple months ago, so it was such a wild experience to photograph them again after they gave birth to their first baby! When I got to their home, baby boy was wide awake and totally ready for his photo shoot. As you’ll see below, he was such a happy camper the entire time and made our session so easy! I hope that in the years to come I’ll get to take some family photos of them around San Francisco!
I met the McCalls on one of my trips to Kona, Hawaii about a year ago. The first time we got together, I went surfing with this gorgeous mama that you’ll see below! I’m not much of a surfer, but it was fun pretending to be from Blue Crush for a minute! When I knew we’d be coming into town again this year, I quickly reached out to see if they’d be interested in shooting with me because… as you’ll see… they are such a fun loving family and how could I not take my camera to one of the prettiest places on Earth?! We had such a fun time. Halfway through the shoot, their youngest daughter was dancing and accidentally fell into the ocean. OK. That sounds worse than it actually was. It wasn’t deep where she slipped in, and she only got her bottom half wet before Dad came to the rescue! Besides that though, we really did have a perfect shoot and I will never get tired of Hawaiian escapades! Take me back!
