Last week, the blizzard formerly known as Stella dropped a blanket of snow over most of Maine. And by a blanket, I mean a solid 2 feet. Thankfully though, she seemed to move out as quickly as she moved in. The day after Stella, the Bunker family and I met up to do their maternity session.
We started the session at their home; in the nursery. Cyndie and Casey are waiting to find out the gender which is something I think is so cool. When I was pregnant with Abby, I really wanted to wait to find out but I didn't possess the willpower. Whoever this little one is going to be, they are so lucky to be coming into a home so full of love. And the nursery is absolutely gorgeous. Seriously, I wish my room looked as nice as this nursery.
Then we all ventured out to Cape Elizabeth to do some pictures with the classic Maine coast. As I was driving up I couldn't help notice how big the waves were. For some reason it didn't occur to me that huge waves = huge winds. That is, until I stepped out of the car. IT WAS SO WINDY. And cold. I shoot and just hang out in Cape Elizabeth a lot throughout the year and I've never, EVER, been there on a day as windy as this one was. The fishing boats were violently rocking off shore and the few cars that were in the parking lot had their occupants sitting in them. 33 and sunny feels a lot different than 33 and cloudy with harsh winds.
I felt really bad about how windy it was because it made it unbearably cold. But Cyndie and Casey were so good about it. We took some breaks to warm up in the car and made use of some snuggly poses.
I love how these images came out and I'm so excited to share these with you all now. I seriously am so excited to meet this little one in about a month and do their newborn session.
