Baby L’s sweet pink newborn session – Kailua Hawaii Newborn Photographer

Swaddled awake newborn portraits

Baby L visited the studio for her first portraits at 3 weeks old and over 11lbs! She’s one of the biggest newborns I’ve photographed, and I absolutely love her delicious cheeks and full head of hair. She was very awake and curious, but soon settled into dreamland and did wonderfully for her studio portrait session.

Baby girl with sweet pink florals in studio

Her parents requested pink and flowers for her newborn session, and I think we nailed it! Pink is definitely her color, and that little grin is perfection. The basket poses show off her cute cheeks and bitty fingers.


Family portraits in studio with newborn baby girl, Hawaii

While family poses looking at the camera are a given, more casual and candid portraits of babies and parents together truly capture the bond and the joy of a new little one. Who hasn’t marveled over those precious, perfect details of their newborn? Tiny kissable noses, fingers, and toes, and the little sighs in their sleep. Doesn’t she look secure and content in daddy’s arms?


3 generations newborn portrait with mom and grandma in Kailua, Hawaii

She also brought her grandma, who was absolutely besotted with her new granddaughter. Sometimes grandparents are a bit shy about being photographed, but I always offer to include them for a special portrait- and I love capturing 3 generations together. You can feel how much little L is loved.

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.
