Big Island Hawaii Maternity Photos with Devin & Sam
I had the pleasure of photographing free spirits mother and father to be Devin & Sam. Devin and Sam met and fell in love while living and working on a farm in Hawi a small town on the north end of Hawaii Island known by many athletes as the turnaround for the yearly Ironman race. Big Island residents know it for it’s old Hawaii charm with meandering creeks and old sugar plantations.
Before the photo shoot, we chatted and exchanged ideas on Pinterest. We waited until the last month of Devin’s pregnancy to schedule the photo session to photograph her baby bump. It was important to Devin that the photos captured be authentic to her and Sam’s personality and bohemian lifestyle.
The stream Devin choose our portrait shoot is located on the Hawi farm where they met and fell in love. Upon arriving at our location, I was overwhelmed by its beauty. There was a large banyan tree which seemed to be split in two by the stream running through it. I knew I wanted to frame the couple within the branches and leaves of the banyan tree while playing with the natural reflection in the water. The images we captured reflected their genuine love for each other and child.
