There is nothing more amazing than the arrival of your first child. The experience of being pregnant and going through all the firsts of parenthood. It is amazing when we are invited to capture a moment of time such as a pregnancy photo shoot which will forever be a snap shot of those unique times. Today we had such an amazing time with our couple Maggie & Billy as they are getting close to giving birth. We took a day at the beach to celebrate the moment.
Baby Tauno was recently born into this world and instead of a silver spoon in his mouth, he came out with a racing pedal under his foot and uncanny early need for speed. His parents are motor sport enthusiasts both racing in the SCCA along with enjoying a little bit of water sports to round it out. Anyway you look at it, this kid is in for one heck of a ride….and maybe a few speeding tickets :) Enjoy now a few images from this newborn photography session.
I can barely wait for Ember and Rocky’s mermaid themed wedding next year. We got to photograph these two at the botanical gardens in Kaneohe which offers lots of different locations for photos. Have you ever been to this awesome place? It’s like what you’ve seen in the movie Jurassic Park but without the growling dinosaurs and electric walls trying to keep them in. However, it has everything else that is awesome including a mini lake and the largest collection of different plants and trees you’ll ever see; both in size and types. Once we got over the sheer amazement of this place, we clicked away on the digitals to capture this cute couple on their engagement together. Rocky plays in a band so of course he brought along his guitar so he could serenade to Ember while she read her wedding magazines. Fun times in a park that made us feel so small yet so lucky we live in Hawaii.
What an amazing evening! It was Joelene’s B-day and we had a great time exploring the forest, hanging out at the swings and enjoying the view from the top of the Tantalus. Their doggie Coco was also part of the shoot and was sporting the Cardinals jersey (that arrived in the mail today! Talking about the timing!!!) Congratulations again!! Can’t wait to photograph little Patrick (the III) once he is here in September!
It was such a pleasure photographing this lovely family. Daddy is a fire fighter so of course we had to take advantage of that and do some fun shots with his work attire. And he truly appreciated that the baby left his helmet all nice and clean trough the shoot.
Kauanoeanuhea is a Hawaiian name. Kristi shared with me the translation, which means: The fragrant misty rain that resides on the top of a mountain where it meets with the sky. How beautiful is that!
I photographed Sam and Tiffany’s pregnancy session last month. Their baby boy was supposed be born while I’m in Europe but it looks like he really couldn’t wait and see this wonderful world (plus he really wanted to have his newborn shoot done with me!!) so he came 25 days earlier. All happy and healthy. And with a name like Sam James King (the III) – he definitely deserves the crown.
Well, Jaycee is actually not one year yet but we did the photos well in advance so mommy can have these photos for the 1st Birthday celebration. Little Jaycee did so well during the session, she was all smiles most of the session and had a blast with the balloons and the cake.
These two make a super cute couple, don’t you agree? They have been engaged for years now with no wedding plans yet. But you don’t really need a reason to take fun photos at the beach other than because you love each other, right? They love to paddleboard so we had to include this activity in the photo shoot even though ocean water can’t really relate to the calm lake waters of Sierra mountains in California. But they did an awesome job balancing even on one board together.
Vivian just turned 2 years! Where did the time go? It seems just like yesterday when I photographed her newborn session. She loved running across the brige ( with one shoe only) and chatting with the geese by the river bathed in an evening sun. And of course she totally rocked her Birthday crown and tutu.
