Jess' Family :: Maternity & Family Portraits at Fort Williams in Cape Elizabeth, Maine

I have been slacking off on my blog posts for a while now (although I have been posting sneak peeks over on Facebook). I promise I'll be posting more, especially as I approach my 5 year anniversary for Suzanne Simmons Photography. Yipee!

Before the holidays of 2012 really got in to the swing of things, I got together with Jess and her family for a very brief maternity/family portrait session around Fort Williams in Cape Elizabeth. It was super chilly out and the wind in the park always makes it feel like the coldest place in the greater Portland area. But, being that Abby's favorite swingset is there, we had to hit it up. I have know Jess since we were both bachelorettes planning our own weddings (longer ago than we care to remember). I took her maternity pictures with her husband, Tim, while they were anxiously awaiting Abby's arrival over three years ago. Now that baby #2 was on the way, we decided it would be the perfect opportunity to capture this time as well. That special time when you still have one baby and it is just the three of you. That time before another little being comes in to the world and your routines are toss aside as you learn how this new family unit works. We had a great time shivering our butts off and racing around the park a bit with each other. I still can't get over how absolutely adorable Jess looks as she is weeks away from her baby boy's arrival.

Here is a sneak peek of what came from our time becoming popsicles. And, coming shortly to another blog post, you'll see the little bundle of joy that came in to the world a short time later. <3
