Hi! We're Shawn + Adam

We're husband and wife who formed our Love + Water Photography team on Maui in 2014. Since then we've created a series of weddings and sessions from the land + sea, drawing inspiration from the gorgeous colors of Maui sunrises and sunsets.

Choosing a photographer for your Big Island maternity photography

Hiring a professional maternity photographer to capture your babymoon in Hawaii is the first step to documenting your story the way it deserves. Unsure about where to begin?

1. Fall in love with their style

Bursting with color or moodier edits? Perfectly posed, a documentary feel or a mixture of the two? Find the Big Island photographer who shoots in the location and with the style you’d prefer for your portrait sessions. Because we specialize in beach maternity portraits, we give tons of direction during your Big Island maternity photography shoot. This will help you feel well-posed and confident – this is when the true moments shine!

2. Set a realistic budget for your Big Island maternity photography

Lay out a realistic budget for maternity photgoraphy. As with most things, you get what you pay for. An experienced and insured photographer insured will charge more. If you are able to, make room in your budget for quality photography. As a result, you’ll see the benefits before, during and after your session. We have a range of packages to choose from with different starting points.

3. Find out if you share the same vibe

There is a photographer for everyone. Make sure your Big Island maternity photographer works in a way that flows with your expectations. On the outgoing side and don’t mind working it for the camera? A hands-off photographer might be just fine for you! Most of us, however, need a bit of help posing. If that’s the case you’ll want to link up with a photographer who gives plenty of flowing posing. This will make it feel effortless in front of their lens.
