Gabe & Shatelle: Maui maternity photographer

At the beginning of my photography career, I photographed these two, first at their engagement session, then as they said their vows. My goodness, was that an honor. I was so emotional that I shed some tears of pride at the end of the evening. The fact that they had trusted me to photograph one of the most important days of their lives was just so overwhelming for me.

Here we are, 4 years later and I’m photographing their journey, as it continues. Shantelle makes maternity look amazing. The glow of her skin, the fascination of that new life in side of her, and the way he looks at her. This is part of why I love this story of life so much.

“first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage.” We all sang that as little kids, but did we really understand what that felt like? I think these two completely understand.

Their first session took place in my neck of the woods. I remembered that their style was more vintage and wispy, so this empty lot up the street from me where the sun glistens as it sets was the perfect compliment to their style.Maui maternity photographerPINIMAGEweb-1PINIMAGEMaui maternity photographerPINIMAGEMaui maternity photographerPINIMAGE

Shan’s maternity session continued at the beach and made my photographer heart burst. We kept it relaxed and short. Comfy sweater, top knot, and her ripe belly. I’m so happy I was able to photograph 2 amazing maternity sessions for my very first wedding couple.Maui maternity photographerPINIMAGEMaui maternity photographerPINIMAGEMaui maternity photographerPINIMAGEMaui maternity photographerPINIMAGE
