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.
