Her goal is to educate people, through the creation of compelling visual images, on the connection between nature, birth, and the human body.

“After spending years as a massage therapist, working with many pregnant women, I noticed that many women were struggling with the visual changes taking place in their bodies. I decided to use my expertise as a photographer to capture the beauty of pregnancy in the natural world as a way of expressing the powerful beauty these women possess,” states Fierro.

Expecting mothers are invited to join Ananda at 1:30pm at Ho’okipa Beach Park’s upper parking lot. Ananda will take individual and groups shots.
