Welcome! I'm a wedding photographer, wife, and mom to a sweet baby boy we call John-John.

I started this business because I believe that every couple deserves not only gorgeous images from their wedding day, but an experience that allows them to be fully present and feel absolutely incredible!

Travel Journal: Hawaii with a Baby

Travel

Hawaii! I see what all the hype is about. I was a little apprehensive given what a trek it is to get there from the East Coast especially now with a baby in the mix (we were supposed to go in spring of 2020 when I was pregnant, but had to reschedule due to COVID), but I can say that the travel was 100% worth it. If you’re considering going to Hawaii with a baby, I’d say do it! But if you haven’t already, check out my best tips for traveling with a baby here and here. I learned A LOT!

We were lucky enough to go with my in-laws for a week and a half. While there we stayed on Oahu and The Big Island in Volcanoes National Park. The time change was a doozy for John-John (hello, 3 AM!), but otherwise it was such a family-friendly place to be. We found a few beaches with low waves perfect for a baby who always wants to be in the water. Otherwise, we just ate a ton of sushi, swam every day, explored the islands, and relaxed with a piña colada in hand. I can’t wait to go back once we have kid(s) that can entertain themselves for the flights, haha! Here are a few of my favorite photos from the trip.

Favorite Baby Friendly Beaches:

Hilo- Onekahakaha Beach Park (big tide pool with inlets to the ocean, grassy “shore,” and shade trees- perfect for families)

Oahu- Ke Iki Beach (sand, sunshine, and low waves on the North Shore)

If you're looking for photography that is so much more than just gorgeous images, it's an experience that allows you to be fully present with the ones you love, you're in the right place.
