This dreamy studio maternity session in Portland was such a joy to style and photograph. Hoaimy and her husband were wonderful clients and it all makes me feel so happy.

This Mama: Hoaimy


Hoaimy and her husband, Huan, met during high school in Portland. They were high school sweethearts and their closeness was a joy to see. They were very calm and had a lot of trust in me, which made it enjoyable to work with them. During one of our early conversations, Hoaimy presented me with a picture for inspiration, asking if I could do something along those lines, and I immediately agreed.

Her vision fit perfectly within the Sun & Sparrow aesthetic. She wanted something dreamy with romantic flowers and a whimsical dress. The mama in the picture she showed me looked very at ease and in a dreamlike state as if the wind was blowing through her hair. I was immediately excited to shoot this studio maternity session in Portland.

When she walked in to see my first studio setup, she was excited because it matched the vibe that she was looking for and she excitedly went and put on her favorite dress from my client closet and we started the session from there. She was willing to perform the poses and moods that I suggested and she trusted me to create the vision that we agreed on. She also brought a dress of her own but saw a dress in my client closet that she liked better and decided to go with that.

Hoaimy is so sweet and incredibly likable. I had a lot of fun working with her and seeing her pretty smile. She makes an effort to connect with people and has a lot of fun, even when she is nervous. I appreciated her ability to use warm and kind words. Her husband, Huan, is equally likable and is good at being silly and making jokes. He was incredibly supportive, noticing any time when I needed support by jumping in and moving things around, while consistently supporting Hoaimy whenever she needed it. He is very perceptive and ready to help. I enjoyed working with this couple a lot.
