As soon as I met Maddie, I knew their maternity session was going to be awesome. The way she spoke about her family; so full of life and love, is something you don't see every day. I was literally counting down the days. The Carter's booked a maternity & newborn package and now I'm counting down the days to her due date! This family is so full of love and it just radiates from all their faces.
We decided to aim for some beautiful golden light and the beautiful location that Kettle Cove is. Cape Elizabeth is one of my favorite spots to shoot at, with it's rocky coast that just says MAINE. It's a bit of a drive for me, but it's always worth it. Kettle Cove is especially fun for kids because there is SO much to explore. I think Emilia's favorite part was the seagulls.
Remember how I said we specifically did the session at a time with gorgeous light? Yeh, about that. It ended up being incredibly cloudy and overcast that evening - AND, dare I say, a little chilly given that it's July. But you know what? We didn't even NEED the beautiful lighting. When a family is as loving and connected as the Carter's are, that's all you can see and focus on anyway.
Here are some of my favorite images from their lifestyle maternity session. Feel free to leave some love and/or share. And definitely keep your eyes out for their in-home newborn session in a few months!
