Pre Covid time I photographed this beautiful couple in Sedona for their maternity session. Brae was actually my neighbor growing up in Ohio. He met his wifey in Flagstaff and traveled a bit before coming back to live in Phoenix! Small world. They are the sweetest couple that are going to make the best parents. Gentle, fun, adventurous, and smart.
I met these two lovely humans on a boat trip to watch the whales. They were visiting Hawaii from California with their friends, a little friends trip before the baby came! We were chatting and I asked them if they wanted maternity photos while they were here since I was trying to grow more of my work in Hawaii. And they said YES immediately after canceling on another shoot with a photographer a day before.
We woke up for sunrise and met them at this beautiful location down by the water. It was all things magical and beautiful. I was so happy I could photograph the love between the two before their family turns into three. I’m always so honored when I get to document significant changes in peoples lives.
