Erin & Matt | Maternity Session Winnekenni Castle & Downtown Haverhill MA

We met with Erin & Matt last Sunday morning.  It was a chilly day, but we all did a good job bundling up.  Erin & Matt were troopers and did a great job dealing with the cold, they never complained.  When Erin contacted us for the session she was totally game for doing an outdoor session.  I was super excited that she wanted to do it as most people are not down for an outdoor session in New England in January.  Then Erin mentioned her idea to get the giant balloons and I was even more excited.  I knew it was going to be a fun session.

This is the castle that is at the top of the hill at the Winnekenni Park Conservation, I can’t wait to come back here in the Spring or Summer for another session.  I love having our couples & families choose locations because we are always learning about new places to shoot.  Erin did a great job coming up with locations for their session.

The town of Haverhill has these hay bales out for the kids who go sledding on the two hills near the entrance to the park.  We were lucky and it was early enough so there weren’t any kids sledding down this hill.  We didn’t have to worry about watching out for the kids coming down the hill. 

We ventured to Downtown Haverhill for a few more shots, it gave us all a chance to warm up in the car a bit.  We were going to visit Sweet Things Bakery, but they were closed for the day for a private party.  We had about 15 minutes to kill and then The Tap was opening at noon, so we found a little alley that we could shoot in.  The Tap was super kind and let us use their room for a few indoor shots.

Thanks for being so great Erin & Matt!  We had a great time shooting and can’t wait to meet your little nugget & for your newborn session in April!

Here is a behind the scene shot of Drew holding the diffuser so the sun wasn’t so harsh.  Luckily the wind didn’t gush, I was worried Drew would crash into them.

Winter Maternity Session & Library Headshots | Sneak Peeks

We had 2 sessions yesterday.  It was a busy day for sure, but also lots of fun.  I don’t want to say too much, I’ll save it for when I do a full post on these 2 sessions.  I am visiting with my twister (twin sister) because she has MLK day off from school.

Thanks to Erin & Matt for braving the cold & for Tracy for getting us free range of the Methuen Library.

Danielle, Jared & Baby Y | Groeland, MA Maternity Session

Two of our dearest friends are pregnant & are going to be having a baby hopefully any day now! eeeeekk!!! I am so excited for them.  We luckily squeezed in a maternity session a few weeks ago.  I am so happy for both Danielle & Jared and I can’t wait to watch them turn into the amazing parents that I know they are going to be!  We shot these near their house.  Danielle scouted locations for us, I knew I wanted to shoot on the bridge that I cross over to get to their house.  She found the awesome riverfront location & then some were right in their yard (that great stone wall is in their backyard).  The light was amazing & they were up for anything, even when Andrew & I asked them to do silly things, they totally did them & we love them for that.

I can’t wait to meet this little nugget.  It’s a surprise if it’s a boy or girl, though Jared knows.  I don’t know how he is keeping it a secret.  I hate to admit it,but I had no faith that he could keep the secret from Danielle or anyone else.  He has proved us all wrong and done an amazing job not letting it slip (you know we’ve all tried to get it out of him)

The top image of this set is my favorite for many reasons.  1.  I love the lens flare.  2. If you know Danielle you know that she isn’t the smiling type, so the fact that she has a genuine smile makes me happy.

The top image here is Drew’s favorite.  He thinks it captures their personalities perfectly!  “That’s what I see when we sit across the table from them”  was his quote.
