Michelle has two studio locations on the Big island for your convenience.
We encourage booking your newborn in your second trimester to ensure priority booking. We know babies arrive on their own time, so Michelle adds you to her expectant mother calendar around your due date. Newborn sessions are completed in studio at 5-20 days old, as this is their sleepiest and most flexible/moldable stage for creative prop shots and posing. Our studio is stocked to the brim with all the adorable outfits, clothing and props for your session.
Maternity sessions are completed around 32-36 weeks. This is when moms are at their most comfortable. We encourage booking in your second trimester. We offer a full client closet of gowns and props to use for your session. All maternity sessions are held in-studio.
Milestone sessions are a great way to document your growing baby. Milestone sessions are completed at 4 months (aerial shots, tummy time, etc), and 7-8 months (also known as sitter sessions for aerial shots, tummy time, sitting and crawling).
Cake smash sessions
Cake smash sessions, also known as your child's first birthday are captured with a custom designed cake smash set-up! We highly suggest booking these special sessions 3 months in advance. We like to get baby in around their 10-11 month age, as this will make sure you have your beautiful portraits back by their first birthday! This session is baby focused only.
All sessions are subject to 4.71% Hawaii state sales tax.
