Babymoons are all the rage right now, and beautiful pregnant bellies are a common site on Maui beaches. We had the absolute pleasure of photographing a lifestyle babymoon maternity session on our little island home recently, and couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. It was a dream of a project, featuring a day in the life of a jet-setting family. The shoot began at sunrise on location at a private villa in Makena – the timing of which works beautifully with travelers as the jet lag works in their favor.
Because the day began so early, we were able to take advantage of the gorgeous golden morning light as the rest of the island was waking up. We had a little breakfast, enjoyed the property, and played in the pool before leaving to explore a hidden waterfall (with a stop at a local coconut stand on the way). It was the very best way to document a wanderlust family who happened to be celebrating their still-cooking new addition in paradise.
