Rivers Family Maternity Announcement | Honolulu Equality Photographer | Haole Girl

Oahu Military LGBT Photographer

November 19, 2015


I was overjoyed when Angela sent me a message to say she was pregnant! I think I may have even found out before her wife did. A few months ago, I did a couple’s session with Angela and Koryn. At that time, they mentioned they wanted to try for a baby. Lucky for them, it happened quickly. The only downside to this is they found out the army will be relocating them next month. While I am sad that I will not be able to photograph their new addition, I am so honored they invited me to capture so many other important moments in their lives while they have been here!

Angela and Koryn wanted to announce the gender of their baby in a fun and unique way; documenting it in photos to share with family and friends. I am just so elated that these beautiful souls will be having a little girl! We set out to the Disney Aulani Resort to document this special moment. We hit a little traffic on the way to the resort, but it ended up being worth it once the sun started to set. What an amazing place to announce the gender of your baby in the sunset! The pinks and blues were so beautiful against the gorgeous sky.

Angela and Koryn are due around mid-April and plan to name their princess, Skylar. Angela has a huge obsession with Lilly Pulitzer—I’m talking HUGE! Koryn REALLY loves all the Lily stuff in their house (read: sarcastic – haha!) This will be one fabulously dressed little girl if Angela has her way. She has already begun sewing Skylar some Lily clothes.

Ladies, I am honored to have been able to capture this special announcement for you. This is a small world and I have faith we will meet again. I can’t wait to see photos of Skylar once she makes her grand arrival. Congratulations to you both!!
