Maternity Gown Gallery ~ Kailua Hawaii Maternity Photographer

Are you expecting a baby? It’s never too early to plan your maternity session, and the Simply Baby studio wardrobe is overflowing with gorgeous gowns designed to highlight your baby bump. Maternity sessions are best scheduled at 28-34 weeks pregnant- right around the beginning of your second trimester, when you still have some energy and can move comfortably. Of course, moms of multiples may wish to plan for an earlier session, and some mothers to be don’t show much until around 36 weeks. We’ll work together to plan flattering, beautiful maternity portraits that you’ll love.

With over two dozen styles and colors to choose from, women of a variety of shapes and sizes will have beautiful options for showing off their pregnancy.


If you love glam styles and want to feel like a princess, the Cloud dress is a dream! It’s made from layers of fluffy tulle with a satin underskirt fit for royalty.


If your style is more vintage/romantic/boho, lace styles are perfect. White, cream, ivory, pink, baby blue, and peach colors are offered, some with a split to reveal your belly. These can also be worn over other dresses to create a new look! Coordinating styles for big sisters ages 2-6 are offered for most colors.

Form fitting gowns are perfect to show off the shape of your belly in a modest way, including styles with long sleeves as well as sleeveless/off shoulder. White and dusty pink have matching girls’ dresses for mommy & me portraits.


The infinity dress can be worn a number of ways, and is perfect postpartum too! This dress is available in red, tan, beige, seafoam green, Tiffany blue, and lavender (with coordinating little girl dress for girls about 2-4 years old).

If you’re expecting, contact us to learn more and schedule a consultation to try on gowns to plan your maternity portrait session! This special time is so fleeting, and whether you’re expecting your first child or your 3rd, you deserve to feel pampered and glamorous.

Walk in Wednesdays

Announcing Walk in Wednesdays! Every Wednesday from 9am-11am the studio will be open for walk in petite portrait sessions, no scheduling required.

What is a petite portrait session?

Petite sessions are perfect for quick milestone sessions. They are about 10-15 minutes, with one outfit/setup. You will have access to our client wardrobe, but not all props/backdrops are available for petite sessions. These are designed for baby only or “Mommy & Me/Daddy & Me” sessions. Immediately after your session, the best 5 portraits will be presented to you on our 55″ TV as unedited proofs. You will make your selections and place your order at this time. All ordered images will be kept on file for a minimum of 30 days, and unordered images will be immediately deleted. While you will view your portraits without edits, standard editing (color, cropping, minor blemish removal and sharpening/smoothing) will be done to all your ordered portraits. Your order will be ready for pickup the following Wednesday.

How much do petite sessions cost?

There is no session fee for petite portraits, and you only purchase what you love- there is no obligation to buy. Prints start at $50 each for 8×10 and smaller ($195 for framed artwork), and single print packages start at $75 for multiple sizes of the same portrait. 11×14 and larger portraits are available as ready to hang artwork. Individual digital images may be purchased for $175 (includes matching print) with instant download, or your set of 5 may be purchased for $600 (includes USB).
