Portland Old Port Maternity Session with Katelynn & Mitch!

I love photographing maternity sessions, especially in the Old Port during the holidays, and especially with couples as sweet as this one. 🙂 Katelynn was due during the first week of February, so we did their session in November. It was a bit chilly but that holiday feel was in the air, and the Old Port is PERFECT for it with all of its beautiful brick and architecture, and we found some twinkling pine trees as well!

Holiday Family Session in Portland, Maine | Carissa & Marc!

I loved doing this holiday season family session with Carissa and Marc along with Carissa’s parents! I photographed Carissa and Marc once before, so when they got back in touch saying her parents would be in town visiting from New Jersey, I was happy to meet up with them again. I was doing some mini sessions in Portland’s Old Port and it was perfect timing. The weather was brisk but not too cold, the architecture was gorgeous (as always), and the lobster trap Christmas tree was on display!

Mini sessions have become a new favorite of mine, particularly for photoshoots like this one. For families with small children or larger families I recommend doing full-length sessions, but when it’s just a few adults, mini sessions (which are 30 minutes long) are PERFECT. It’s just enough time to get comfortable in front of the camera and get some happy photos without feeling like you’re smiling for hours on end. 😉
