Hawaii Newborn and Baby Portraiture by Simply Baby Photography { Kailua & Honolulu, HI } bio picture
  • Love is the purest form of art.

    As the mother of three (that's me to the left, with my youngest), I know all too well how fleeting baby's first year is. Your love grows along with your baby, but memories fade with passing days. What do you most want to remember about those first moments? The tiny toes, downy soft cheeks and dream smiles? The way he grasps your finger tighter than you'd imagine possible, or how she fits so perfectly cuddled into the curve of your shoulder?

    Newborn portraits are truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. And as your baby grows, there are other milestones you'll want to record- gummy grins, sitting proudly, standing tall and of course baby's very first birthday.

    Simply Baby Photography was born out of my love for my children, and my desire to capture the pure beauty of babyhood along with the special bonds of family. I would be honored to share your family's story through my art.

Adorable times three: not quite triplets – multiple baby session

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing each of these gorgeous babies over the past year. They’re not quite triplets- the girls are cousins, born just a few weeks apart, and the handsome little fellow with them is their calabash cousin, a few months younger.

While I’ve worked with newborn triplets before, photographing three older babies together was a new challenge and they did so well! The girls recently turned one and wanted to explore but were happy to stay still together for a few moments.

While the goal was at least one good image of everyone together, we attempted two setups plus individual portraits. This photograph called for a slightly more vintage style than my usual editing, and I love how it turned out!

Milestone session: Baby W { Kailua Baby Portraits }

Sitting milestone sessions are among my favorites, and Baby W’s was no exception! He’s grown into a bright eyed happy boy with a fantastic grin.

Love his dapper little sweater set! So handsome.

He loved being loved on by both his parents, and they make such a cute family. Dad snuggles and kisses equal lots of grins and giggles!

Even though the weather doesn’t get very cold here in Hawaii, winter can be a little chilly- and who can resist a baby in an antler hat?

Mama is a baby wearing advocate and has an amazing collection of wraps! I miss the days when my kids were small enough to be worn- baby wearing is great for bonding and calming fussy babies, as well as giving them a special perspective & ability to interact more with their environment. And for moms, being able to kiss your baby’s head freely is always a great bonus.

I’m looking forward to seeing Baby W and his family again in a few months for his first birthday. Time really does fly- one day you have a tiny baby in your arms and before you know it they’re toddling off on adventures. Milestone sessions are wonderful for marking both the developmental stages and your favorite memories of this time in baby’s life.
