That golden island flare - Oahu Maternity Photographer

A golden but chilly morning a few weeks ago, while I was still living in South Florida, I had the honor of capturing a gorgeous couple expecting their second boy.
With an island flare to herself, this Jamaica-born mama had such beauty and energy that it was contagious all around. She was very determined to get her water shots, and so into the rough and cold shore break we went. We laughed and got our share of salt water, which produced images I'm very proud of.

Whenever I get in the ocean with my clients, especially on a rough day like this, I'm always trying to incorporate the multitude of lines, textures and shapes that the waves and white water make into my frames. There's no fun in getting your pictures taken at the beach and nor getting into the water. So thank you Therese, for being an awesome sport and for being everything I look for in a maternity client.

I hope you'll enjoy these colorful and powerful images.
