Cape Elizabeth Family Lifestyle Session | Southern Maine Photographer

Bree won my New Year’s giveaway and last month we got together to do their family pictures. To our surprise as we were driving to Kettle Cove it started raining rather heavily. We decided to go ahead with the session and hope that it wasn’t still raining when we got there. Not surprisingly, it was! We didn’t let it slow us down and it ended up clearing up just in time for us to get to the beach and play in the water.

Don’t forget- booking for fall mini sessions is open!

Russel Family Session | Portland, Maine Photographer

Hey guys!

I have so, so been slacking with blogging this month. It's just been insanely busy between my summer classes ending and trying to get everything done that I wanted to get done before school starts up again for everyone. 

Today I'm sharing some of my favorite images from the Russell family's session from last month. We originally were going to meet in Scarborough but were surprised to find our location completely packed on a Sunday evening. Luckily, there are so many great spots close by and they were super flexible so we decided to head over to Kettle Cove. 

I still have 2 spots open for session in September, so if you're interested in booking you can contact me by hitting that button below.

Carter Lifestyle Maternity Session | Cape Elizabeth Photographer

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!
