Welcome to Simply Baby

Simply Baby Photography is Hawaii's trusted newborn and baby photography studio. Celebrate the love of your growing family through beautiful portraits that capture moments that mean the most to you. With over twelve years of experience, Simply Baby has carefully and gently worked with hundreds of babies, including micro preemies and multiples, to create special and unique portraits.

 

Simply Baby specializes in baby's first year, from maternity portraits to newborns (recommended at 6-12 days of age, though full term babies up to 6 weeks can be photographed as newborns) and milestones such as sitting (around 7 months) and first birthday celebrations including cake smash and bubble bath. Your experience will be customized to reflect your family's, and your baby's personality.

As a boutique portrait studio, we offer sessions in our natural light Kailua studio as well as outdoors and on location throughout Hawaii. Our goal is to create classic, timeless keepsakes in a relaxed environment so you may treasure these wonderful, fleeting moments for a lifetime.

About Lisa

I was a photographer long before I became a mother, but motherhood allowed me to truly see and appreciate the beauty in the quiet, simple moments. As my children grow, I rely on photographs to remember just how small those tiny toes once were. To recall that soft, sweet newborn scent, and the first gummy smiles and squeals of delight. A photograph preserves that moment in time, that precious memory, and allows you to recall it at will. Nobody has ever complained of having too many good photographs of their children.

 

My special passion for capturing newborns and babies comes as a result of my firstborn's premature birth, two months early. I only have a couple of self-portraits to document my pregnancy, and my son's early arrival meant a stay in the NICU with just a few photos of him as a tiny newborn in an isolette. It is a joy and an honor to bear witness to the incredible love parents have for their children.

Session Information

The moment your new baby is first placed in your arms and you examine every precious detail is one of the most powerful experiences as a parent. Babies grow up so quickly and each stage brings new delights and wonder. Newborns are so tiny and perfect- they way they fit in your arms, their kissable cheeks, downy soft baby fuzz and their ten little toes. Your session includes family (and sibling) poses with a natural lifestyle approach, as well as 2-3 setups of baby plus close ups of those exquisite details. Plan to book at least one month before your due date to guarantee session availability within baby's first two weeks of life.

Before baby arrives, maternity sessions are a wonderful way to remember the joy of anticipating your little one. With nearly 40 gowns to choose from, you'll look and feel beautiful in studio or outdoors. Maternity sessions typically take place between 30-36 weeks and can include partners and siblings.

As baby grows, from their first smiles and tummy time to sitting, standing and walking, treasure their unique expressions and accomplishments with a milestone session. These can be scheduled at any time, with 3-4 month/100 days, 6-8 months (sitting), and 10-12 months (1st birthday complete with cake smash and bubble bath) being popular options. Outfits, accessories and props for babies from birth to 18 months are provided, with a full studio wardrobe available for baby girls and boys. Studio, in home lifestyle, and outdoor locations are all offered.
