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.

Sunset Maternity Photoshoot With A Toddler On Maui, Hawaii

As soon as we saw the photos from this beach maternity photoshoot with a toddler in Wailea, Maui, we knew we had to share them! 

Christian and Rhandie were babymooning on Maui anticipating the arrival of their newest family member, and their adorable toddler joined in for their maternity photos, making it a wonderful experience for the whole family! With a stunning sunset as the backdrop, we can’t get over the beauty (and cuteness) of this session.

For expecting parents seeking unforgettable maternity photos, there’s no better setting than Maui‘s picturesque beaches. The golden hour at sunset lends a dreamy ambiance, perfect for showcasing the glow of motherhood. With Love + Water Photography, we ensure your maternity photoshoot is not just a session, but a cherished memory to treasure for years to come.

But what about when it’s not your first child and you want to bring your adorable toddler along? With kids of our own, we know that toddlers can be⁠⁠—well, free-spirited! We also understand the dynamics of family photoshoots, especially with energetic little ones in tow, and how to make sure that everyone has fun and that your photos turn out amazing.

Here are a few tips for photoshoots with toddlers to make the experience smooth and enjoyable for everyone:

  1. Timing is Key: Consider scheduling your photoshoot during the golden hours of sunrise or sunset. If you’re still adjusting to the time difference from the mainland, sunrise family photo sessions can be ideal as you adjust to the time change. If you are midway or near the end of your trip to Hawaii, sunset might be better as everyone is more adjusted to the island’s rhythms. 
  2. Come Prepared: Bring along essentials like a towel and your toddler’s favorite snacks to keep them comfortable and entertained. A happy toddler makes for better photos, and having familiar items on hand can help ease any restlessness. It also gives us the chance to get some beautiful photos of mom and dad together!
  3. Engage and Play: Encourage natural interactions between family members, allowing genuine moments to unfold organically. Whether it’s building sandcastles or playing a game of tag, let your toddler’s playful spirit shine through.

As you can see, Christian and Rhandie’s little one had a blast and now this beautiful family has maternity photos to cherish forever!
