“Love In Action” – A Babymoon Session in Wailea

I’d never heard the term “babymoon” before meeting Irene and Darren. A few months from now, they’ll be welcoming their first child into the world; A truly awesome and life changing event. But that isn’t the only reason this couple came to Maui… this was also to celebrate their (slightly delayed) honeymoon!

The newlyweds were married in May of this year in their home state of Texas. They shared how they had fallen in love with Hawai’i years ago when they first visited O’ahu. They were drawn to the kind natured people of Hawai’i, the beautiful beaches and turquoise water. Now they had come to the Maui for their second island retreat.

Madelynne and I met the couple in the lobby of the beautiful Hotel Wailea. They were so cute! Unlike most hotels on the south side, the Hotel Wailea is not on the waterfront. Instead in sits perched on the subtle slopes of Haleakala with incredible views of Kihei, Maʻalaea, Wailea and Makena. The grounds are beautiful with lush plant life, waterfalls and a small creek that flows under the hotel and across the entire property; A beautiful location for photographs.

As the sun approached the horizon, we headed down the hill to Po’olenalena Beach and continued our portrait session. The sandy shoreline, lava rock and kiawe trees made for a great background to this amazing couple.

As the sunlight faded, we sat together on the beach and enjoyed the saturated sky and crescent moon over the nearby island of Kaho’olawe. This was their final day of their vacation and it felt fitting to shoot one last image of the couple standing together in silhouette of the sea and sky.

Our sincere gratitude goes to this wonderful couple from Texas. Congratulations to you both! We can’t wait to meet the keiki on his first trip to Hawai’i 🙂
