When Nichole contacted me for her maternity session, we discussed several ideas. She showed me her beautiful wedding slideshow and when I suggested holding the session at the Koolau Golf Club where she and Kevin were married she agreed it was perfect. This was my first time visiting the club and special permission is required to photograph there. I’m so glad Nichole made the arrangements- the grounds are breathtaking.

So in love- my favorite part of maternity sessions is capturing the emotions and connections. And of course, since this lovely bridge was a backdrop for their wedding portraits, I wanted to show how much love grows as a family grows.
I adore this one because it shows Nichole’s and Kevin’s personalities so well. They- and I- laughed so much during their session!
Nichole was positively glowing. I love her sweet, hopeful expression.
After we’d packed up and were on our way out, I spotted a gentle slope with yellow oxeye blossoms. “Just one more” turned into a handful, and I’m so glad we took the time. This is one of my favorites from the session.
Maternity sessions should be scheduled between weeks 32-36 when you’re showing nicely and before discomfort sets in- outdoor sessions can be a bit of a workout for everyone. Baby Micah arrived about a week early five weeks after this session, and I can’t wait to share his portraits next.
