Five years ago, Leah and Mike got married at the Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine. Leah had messaged me at the beginning of this year and told me she was looking for a photographer to capture family photos at their wedding venue with their baby girl. (Such a sweet and unique idea to do!!) She didn't have a particular date in mind, but she was thinking sometime in April or May. Given that I live a few hours north, I told her that I would be passing through the area at the end of May. I was heading to photograph a wedding in Cape Cod so I could do a session that Friday on my way through. She replied and told me that date is actually their five year wedding anniversary and they couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than with their six month old baby girl at the very place they got married. What a coincidence - it feels like it was just meant to be!
We timed it perfectly too! Everything in Kennebunk was freshly blooming, so we started their session in a beautiful lilac tree that was actually in the parking lot of The Nonantum Resort (you'd never even know it!). Then, as the sun started dropping, and the golden light starting pouring over trees, we went out back and did some photos on the docks with the water, sailboats, and lighthouse in the background. We made sure to get plenty of photos of just mom and dad too, to celebrate their love and marriage on their fifth anniversary.
Their Testimonial: "Emily did a family photo session for our family and she was amazing. Not only did the pictures come out incredibly beautiful, but she was also fabulous with our 6 month old, who wasn’t always the most cooperative during the session. Emily was up for making funny noises to get her attention and she had wonderful patience! She set us up for truly breathtaking shots, and we will treasure these photos forever!"
