Derrek, Karly & Landon~ Maternity

Being a Oahu, Hawaii photographer is a absolute dream. I get to photograph families, babies, wedding’s and more in some of the most beautiful places in the world. One of my favorite types of sessions to photograph is maternity sessions. There is nothing in this world more beautiful than a glowing mama to be.

I was so excited when Karly messaged me to tell me they were coming on vacation to Oahu and wanted me to take their maternity/family photos. Everything turned out just perfect that evening. The light, the locations, the gowns, the flowers and the sunset were absolute perfection.

You can feel the love these 3 have for each other and I know that precious baby will be loved.

This is one of my favorite sunset family sessions to date. I hope you love your images as much as I do. Congratulations again, Fandel family!

Aloha Baby Austin

Aloha my sweet baby boy Austin!! 


There is nothing better than photographing a sweet new baby except for photographing your own.

I was originally scheduled to have our son via c-section on June 26th, but this little guy had his own plans! On monday evening I woke up throughout the night and just wasn't feeling well and was constantly having contractions but no pain. By Tuesday morning they began to become consistent. After laying down and drinking water, they spread out. Throughout the day, they would come and go and started to become extremely painful. My husband came home from work and i had my friends ready to come get our kids just in case. By 9:30pm we headed for the hospital. Contractions became unbearable and thankfully i only had to labor a few hours before they took us back and delivered our healthy, handsome, baby boy via c-section.

Austin Jacob was born on June 24th at 3:34 a.m. weighing 7 lbs .03 oz and 20 inches long. It was the best moment of my life, besides the births of my other 2 children.

There is nothing in this world that makes me happier than being a mommy. I'm so happy I was able to take his pictures and share my new little man with the world! 

Welcome to this great big world, Austin! Mommy, daddy, ryan and Kennady are crazy in love with you already!! 


Huge thank you to Lindsay and Autumn for taking my kids the night we went into labor before my moms flight got in. and a special thank you for my mom who took care of my kids once she arrived and for everything while she was here. We are truly lucky for those in our lives!
