UPDATED Portfolio Maternity Shoot

I know I post a lot of model portraits, but don’t let that stop you from thinking I can’t shoot anything else!  Did this sunset maternity shoot for friends of a friend in July.   This was before they were heading back home to Vegas and they requested to have some maternity shots done.  My friend asked me and I happily agreed to do it.  I like shooting maternity photos because to me, it’s such an important thing to document, especially if it’s going to be your first child, I mean why wouldn’t you want some memories?!

I first met Kerah through my partners, Brandon (BSV) & Kalen (kshotz), on one of AMMDI’s swimsuit shoots.  Prior to that, we only chatted lightly through instagram after she saw some of my shots I did with other girls that were sporting one of her 1 piece swimsuits.  Then the team and I helped a bit with another shoot for her line and after that I thought, “why haven’t I ask Kerah yet to shoot?”  So I asked her one day and she was down for my ideas and here it is!

Wanna see what we cooked up for this shoot?  You’ll definitely wanna see the video too!  Click on Kerah’s photo above or click here.

Big shouts to @keeeraah (you’ll find out soon who she is) for choosing us to be a part of this project!  Here is a few nice words she had for the crew and I.  “Huge thank you to Sean, Brandon, Kalen, and Jaysen for being a part of this project with us and helping us make this vision come to life!  Also, for helping me down the hike lol.”

NEW Model Feature: Michaela

sphoto, sphotohi, sphotohawaii, hawaii, hawaii model, model photography, michaela spaulding, street photography, photography, bikini, asian, dslr, t1iThis is Michaela, aka Kayla.  A 21 year old college student who moved to the island from Fairbanks, AK to take up political science at UH.  Although amazing at what she does when she’s in front of the camera, off camera, not only is she smart, but she’s hella friendly, easy going, and over all a chill person to hang and make conversations with.  I typically found her through instagram, basically the biggest directory out there when looking for someone to shoot with lol, and just dm’d her to schedule something.  Some months down the line, here you are checking up on what the team and I curated from the shoot we had with Michaela this passed weekend.  I’ll let her feature do the rest of the talking.

Check it out by clicking on her photo above or click here.  Not only is it filled with tons of awesome photos, but also the sick video coverage my partners brewed up!

Don’t forget to follow us on instagram and show some love!  We give that love right back!
