Dan and Sarah Lee wanted to capture their Maternity Photos while on their trip here in Oahu from California! They are OBSESSED with lush greenery and Hawaii’s tropical vibes surrounding us, so we decided to shoot at Ho’omaluhia Botanical Gardens which is famous for lush greenery and mountains! This is by far one of my favorite and most requested locations lately and I have absolutely no complaints about that!


Sarah & Dan were super funny + bubbly thru the entire photoshoot and I loved directing them throughout this ENTIRE thing! As an expecting mama myself it made me want Maternity photos of my own and it makes me sooooo utterly happy watching other strong women carry babies so beautifully! I truly believe that women are their strongest, most beautiful and proudest during PREGNANCY! What is more beautiful than carrying a little babe, seriously?!


To end the night off we drove to the beach after dusk and caught the last glimpses of light in the water. To top it all off we had the entire beach to OURSELVES! Which if you know anything about Hawaii, that is RARE! It was such a beautiful evening spent with these soon to be parents and I am truly honored to have been apart of capturing this day for them! I only hope to capture more and more maternity sessions as I am wholeheartedly in love with expecting mamas, ESPECIALLY in this season of life! If you are expecting and want to document motherhood in it’s finest moments I am soooo here for it! Click here to book a shoot
