R Family Maternity Session at Waimanalo | Honolulu Family Photographer, Sharleen Mey Photography
One of the things I love about photographing clients here in Hawaii is learning about the roads they’ve traveled and all the unique circumstances they are in. When Ashley contacted me about booking just a maternity session, I was a tad puzzled as I typically also shoot my maternity clients’ newborn portraits. It turns out that Mick is here temporarily and Ashley, along with their little man C, wanted to join him while he’s in Hawaii.
Ashley’s goal was to find a location with mountains in the background, so I recommended Waimanalo Beach because of the beautiful mountain range in the background. Basically, she wanted the beauty that is Hawaii documented in her maternity session and what better place to hold it than at Waimanalo with it’s soft, white sand and exquisite blue waters?
Session day rolls around and it was an overcast day but that did not tamper with the mood and flow of Ashley’s maternity session. The sand was still as white as ever, and the water very, very blue. Little C was just hammin’ it up for the camera and I honored Ashley’s request to have the session more family-focused than just about her and belly.
The ‘R’ family maternity session had the perfect balance of fun, love, and emphasis on baby in the belly. I’m so happy that they will have these photos to look back on when they reminisce about their short-term stay on Oahu.
