Up in the clouds- Honolulu newborn portraits

Not one but BOTH of this handsome little man’s parents are pilots- how awesome is that? Of course his nursery is a plane theme so we absolutely HAD to get a portrait of him with the vintage style plane. We did have to work for it a bit but once he settled he did great.newborn_airplane_prop_kailua-simply_baby

Look at those gorgeous eyes! A heartbreaker in the making for sure. With that head full of hair and those sweet cheeks, he’s one of the handsomest babies I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.


Parent portraits are often among my favorites from newborn sessions and this one was no exception. You can just feel the love between parents and baby.


We planned to do beach portraits, and it took nearly two weeks before the weather cooperated! It’s been a wet year so far, which makes outdoor sessions challenging. Conditions have to be just right to take babies out for a short time, and they’re kept warm and safe from the sun. The wait was worth it- he did wonderfully and the weather was incredibly beautiful!


And here it is in print. This is the Butterfly Kisses collection sans the 16×20 canvas, which takes a little longer to deliver. Everything came out absolutely perfect!
