Some say motherhood teaches you the meaning of living in the moment and being at peace. Children don't think about yesterday, and they don't think about tomorrow. They just exist in the moment. I was privileged to capture this moment in Amaya's life as she is just about to welcome her first new born child. When I was customizing this shoot for Amaya, I wanted to really bring the essence of Mother Nature. The Maunawili area of O'ahu, with the lush green mountains and abundance of tropical plants was a fitting setting. I also took advantage of the unique property adorned with old plantation Hawai'i architecture. This I felt, really portrayed that when it comes down to it, we are all Earth's children.
