Brooke | Maternity Photographs at Hammonasset Beach in Madison CT

Brooke’s beach maternity session at Hammonasset Beach in Madison, Connecticut was straight out of a fairytale. We laughed the whole time, soaked up the beautiful sunset, and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect evening to take some super rad maternity photos!

Photography sessions with Brooke and Kevin feel like I’m just hanging out with old friends. I was lucky enough to be the videographer for Brooke and Kevin’s wedding in 2018. We had an absolute blast, ate the best food EVER (seriously, it’s in the top 3 of wedding’s I’ve shot), and their wedding video turned out incredibly beautiful. Brooke and I also both grew up in the small town of Keystone Heights, Florida, and though life took us both all over the country, we somehow both landed up in Connecticut,  just 45 minutes from each other.

Just a year later, Brooke and Kevin announced they were expecting, and reached out to see if I was available for a maternity session. You can imagine my excitement to get to work with such a beautiful mother-to-be!

I’d already had a vision for a fairytale beach maternity session, and I knew Brooke would be the perfect person for it! She loved the idea, and was immediately on board. Since Brooke’s due date was fast approaching, we wasted no time finding her a stunning yellow maternity dress from Silk Faries.

Brooke, Kevin and I made it to the beach less than two weeks before her due date. After the session, I stayed up late to edit all of the photographs; I wanted her to be able to enjoy the photographs for at least a few days before her little one arrived!

I absolutely LOVE how this session turned out, and feel so honored that I got to capture this moment for Brooke and Kevin. Your little family will always hold a special place in my heart.
