Tess Polivka Photography » Denver newborn photographer :: Maternity, baby, family photographer

Kai means ocean in Hawaiian. It’s so fitting because his parents were engaged and married in Hawaii. I was lucky enough to be one of the photographers to capture their wedding day in Kona. Once you’ve been to Hawaii it becomes an obsession. I think about going back again and traveling to each of the islands, drinking Kona coffee, eating poke everyday, filling up on as much passion fruit as I can take, trying my hand a surfing again, sipping POG while a lounge at the beach…sigh…it’s amazing. Enough day dreaming, we are here to talk about Mr. Kai. He is so sweet and was a perfect baby for his shoot. A family member made the hats he’s wearing. Personal touches in a shoot are always welcomed. I can’t get enough of the photos of Lindsay and Kip snuggling with their new little guy. They look so blissfully happy. That makes me happy.

I have been obsessed with hearts and all things Valentine’s day since I can remember. I think if you have a birthday in February it’s a must. I thought why not celebrate the day by spreading the love? Thanks to a good friend for helping me make the clouds and hearts.


These three cuties made my Valentine’s day just a little bit sweeter. Hope your day was a good one as well. <3

So, Katie + Rob had a little bundle, Oliver. He’s so cute and smushy. My favorite things about newborns. They just look so sweet and peaceful when they sleep. The vintage O that hangs in Oliver’s nursery along with the quilt we used in her maternity session made perfect and personal props for the newborn session. My favorite photos is where he found his belly button.. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, they’ve had their baby but I had to finally share their maternity photos. This was one of my all time favorite maternity sessions. I mentioned maybe using the huge balloons for the session and Katie was all over it. *Hint* make sure you can fit them in your car before having the store fill 3 of them ๐Ÿ˜‰ We met in Boulder at one of my favorite trailheads for the session. We had cows, rain, mountains, and BALLOONS. Amazing. I adore how Katie styled her baby bump with the scarf and belt. Next I’ll share their baby boy, Oliver.
