Newborn Fresh 48 Hospital Session | Tripler AMC, HawaiI Family photographer

I love shooting births.

I may love shooting Fresh 48 Sessions just as much.  

New baby toes and fingers. Photographs that catch the moment that mom realizes that's who she is - a mom.  Dad's realization his life will never be his own again.  That little girl has stolen it away. He will forever be wrapped around her little finger. 

Birth photography and newborn photography capture the moments we are sure to forget.  Because we're tired and our bodies are not our own.  But being able to look back at how strong we were in that moment, and the amazing life our bodies brought forth, is such a gift.  

Jessica and Drew were waiting to find out what they were having - so Miss Maisie was a sweet surprise! I had spoken with Jessica but never met her in person.  It was so fun to meet their little girl and see how perfectly she resembled both her parents!
