Updated: Jan 10

January 8, 2016- Maternity sessions always yield beautiful images. I mean what pregnant woman isn’t glowing near the end of her pregnancy?! For this blog post, however, I had an especially hard time editing down the images I wanted to use because there were so many beautiful ones of Mirela and John during their sunset maternity session at Ironwoods Beach in Kapalua. The couple are expecting their first child, a baby boy, next month.

Mirela chose two different dresses for her session, both hugging her bump. She felt and looked gorgeous for the session and it shows in the images! If you want some ideas for how to dress for a maternity photo session, click here to read my blog post.

In early December, the couple came to Maui from California for a friend’s wedding. Mirela, who has been to Maui several times and had already fallen in love with it, realized the timing was perfect for her to do a maternity photo session while on Maui. So she found me and booked a session.

The sun sets more to the south of Ironwoods Beach at this time of year, making for some gorgeous highlights on the side of her face and on the face of the waves.

We had originally decided on a session at Po’olenalena Beach in Wailea, however, our plan went awry when their car wouldn’t start as they were leaving for the session! Mirela called me right away, and I hopped in my car and drove to their hotel to pick them up for a session at Ironwoods Beach instead. Needless to say, everything worked out for the best. We got some gorgeous light and even some big waves!
