Erin + Steve | Kent Island Maternity

Wanna hear a secret? I love outdoor winter sessions! I know that seems unlikely given the drop in temperature and need for coats, but the typical crowded parks and beaches are a lot quieter, and the winter sun has a special glow- not just at sunset but at all times of the day!

I was already beyond excited to walk through Terrapin Park in Kent Island with Erin and Steve and get to know them a little bit better as they get ready to welcome their baby boy, but we totally lucked out on a borderline toasty February day! The temps were near 50 on our session day with a bright golden sunset, it was winter beach magic!

Erin and Steve ROCKED their session- I loved Erin's blue dress, it really complimented the beach hues and popped against the sand. Extra points for the hat pictures- gotta love a good prop!

But, what I loved most was the way Steve and Erin snuggled with each other as they took in this moment of time while it's just the two of them! Pregnancy feels long while your in it, but goes by in the blink of an eye. A beautiful evening to take in all in and capture film-inspired images to remember this feeling is sometimes just what we all need!

Erin and Steve, I can't wait to meet your baby boy!! I loved my evening with you for your Maternity portraits and couldn't be more excited for you to become parents, cheers!
