Its not always that I reach out to people and offer them a free session, but that’s exactly what I did for Loredana and Constantin. She’s one of the many Romanians living on Oahu and when I moved here, I didn’t know anybody. I did what I do best and I stalked her instagram page a little bit and noticed that she hasn’t had any maternity photos done. I also needed to build my Hawaii portfolio, so I sent her a message.
Constantin & Loredana Maternity Session at the Kualoa Secret Island Beach in Hawaii
I was so happy when she said yes and we were able to schedule something within a week. I needed to get my creative juices flowing again and these two soon to be parents were the absolute best family to photograph! We walked along the side of the beach until we got to the Kualoa Secret Island Beach. I’ve never been there before but Loredana and her husband have been, so I trusted them. It was actually a good thing, because while we walked to the spot, we were able to talk and get to know each other better. We talked about life on the island, parenthood, baby girls. They gave me tips about the best beaches and best places to eat and I gave them advice about life with kids.
I remember them telling me how everyone was telling them how “your life changes when you have kids, you can’t do the same thing you did before.” I looked at them, smiled, and said, “that true, to a point.” Here’s the thing, this is for anyone expecting your first baby. Your life does change, but into something way better. You will still take trips, you’ll still go on dates, not as frequently, but they do happen. As long as you keep working on your marriage, your life isn’t over. Your kids are a joy and you’ll get to the point where you’ll want to come home earlier from your date because you want to be with your kids. I’ve been there.
