Two passions I have are photography and traveling. I had the opportunity to combine the two with a trip to Oahu Hawaii. Meet Anna and three month old Arielle. I’ve known Anna personally for several years. With the distance and busy lives we have not seen each other often lately. I was more than excited when this trip popped up. I was able to spend time with a special friend, celebrate her new baby reaching the three month mark and capture mother hood in a very magical way. Motherhood is trying. It’s a tender love and a test in both patients and stamina. Seeing Anna as a mom, well there is nothing quite like it. I cherish this shoot not only because I am happy for Anna as a friend but when I look at these images I see an unconditional love that reminds me of how powerful what I do is.
