Maine Winter Maternity Session | Bunker Family

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.

February Special | Maine Birth Photographer

Happy February everyone!

As you may be able to tell I’ve been updating my website a bit lately. I’ve updated my birth session rates and would really love to add some more birth photography to my portfolio. I find birth photography to be some of the most moving and powerful photography.

I’m currently offering $200 off any birth session booked during the month of February. Due to the nature of childbirth, I literally put myself on-call in preparation of your little one’s arrival. I am only taking on a couple of these sessions in 2017 so if you are interested I would love to chat with you more.

Here’s a little more information about booking a birth session:

On the day you go into labor, I am ready for the call. I typically head to the hospital (or your home if you are having a home birth) when you are 6cm dilated. Packages can be customized if you would like an earlier arrival but 6cm seems to be magic number. You know things are progressing and it’s going to happen soon but I have enough time to get to there.

When I arrive, I will check in with you and see how you are doing. After that you may forget I’m there. I am there to capture this miraculous occasion and do it as inconspicuously as possible. After the birth, I stay for the first hour of your little one’s life and keep photographing your new family while blending into the background.

 

Please feel free to share this with anyone you know who may be interested & happy love month!

Warmly,

Danielle
