I met the Thomas family thanks to my friend Tina of Tina Mahina Photography. They have mutual friends who recommended her for their session, but her specialty is destination weddings and honeymoons. She told me they were expecting and asked if I was interested in photographing their babymoon- of course! We met on the beach on Valentine’s Day, when almost the entire island was very gray and very damp. Amazingly, we didn’t get rained on once and the soft light was beautiful.
The rich colors of T’s dress brightened the day and worked very well with the tropical location.
This wide stretch of white sandy beach is often deserted or nearly so, so it is an ideal location for intimate portraits. There are a few different looks which I love- the endless beach, the rock formations, and a wooded glade with a pond. I love how the second image has such a mermaid feel.
T is radiant and has such a perfect baby belly!
The joy and love between T and C and their baby shone- their little one will definitely be cherished. A babymoon is a wonderful time to celebrate new life, and create new memories while enjoying peaceful moments together before the sleepless nights begin.
T and C, it was wonderful meeting you, and I’m so glad you enjoyed our session! I wish your family all the best, and I can’t wait to see a photo of baby once s/he arrives.
