Hawaii Newborn and Baby Portraiture by Simply Baby { 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.

Just Peachy – Kailua Newborn Portraits

Meet Lia, six days old and perfect in every way.

The simple cream, peach and pink tones go beautifully and show off that she is her mother’s first baby girl- with three older brothers. Don’t let these sweet sleepy portraits fool you- I can already tell she has the spunk and voice to fit right into her busy, loving, chaotic household.

I loved how she would rest one finger on her cheek as she slept- isn’t that adorable?

All those bitty details- lips, ten tiny toes, fingers so small you’re afraid to trim their nails.

Since she was born at Castle Hospital, I was able to meet her the evening after she was born and get a quick cuddle. While her session a few days later wasn’t the quickest, it meant more snuggles and rocking so I can’t complain at all. Sessions always go at baby’s pace and comfort level, with plenty of feedings, swaddling and love.

I can’t wait to see her again in a few months for her next Grow! baby plan session.

Glowing mama – Kailua maternity session

Would you believe this glowing mama is expecting her THIRD baby? She’s absolutely stunning, and when Kelly of Kelly Roth Photography invited me to join the fun I eagerly accepted.

We selected a beautiful rainforest location for her maternity session, quiet and private. Lush green foliage to symbolize the growth of new life within.

When the sun came out from behind a cloud for a few brief moments, it illuminated her and her perfect round belly perfectly and I think Kelly and I both gasped out loud- it was a divine touch, bathing her in a halo of light.

I can’t wait to meet her sweet baby. Kelly and I are guessing girl, and we should find out if our guess is correct any moment now. K, we’re wishing you a peaceful, incredible birth and lots of love.

Baby Dillon, 5 months

One of my favorite babies is moving! I will miss the cuddles and baby bubbles, not to mention the gummy grins. Usually I recommend a sitting session at 7 months, when babies are sitting confidently, but any age is a great age to capture especially when they are this happy.

To show how much Dillon has grown, we tried out the new scale. Safety first- he was never suspended in the air and mom’s hands were on him at all times.

When I bought this hat, I had Dillon in mind. I knew he could rock a fedora and he didn’t disappoint! With charm like this, I’m sure everyone he meets will become his friend.

Dillon, you (and your family) will be dearly missed! I wish you all the best and look forward to watching you grow.
