{Featured Location: Kettle Cove and Crescent Beach} | Maine Portrait and Lifestyle Photographer

With the warm weather and portrait and lifestyle season right around the corner, I thought it would be good to start a little mini-series on the blog about some of my favorite locations for all types of sessions. I always encourage my clients to think about places that may have some meaning to them, but sometimes thinking of the perfect spot for your images can be overwhelming. I have locations that I frequent for sessions and a few hidden gems that I like to go to a few times a year.

Today I’m going to put the spotlight on Kettle Cove and Crescent Beach in Cape Elizabeth. I had to start with a beach location because 1. I love the beach, 2. I NEED summer, and 3. these sessions often end with a trip to the ice cream store, and that just makes my heart extra happy. 🙂

Although these locations are actually separate, I decided to lump them together because they are right next door to each other, and can offer a really amazing two-location session if desired. Crescent Beach is a classic sandy Maine beach, with a wide beach area. Additionally, it has a bunch of paths, flanked by tall sea grass or trees which give a stunning glow on a sunny summer evening. The light just before sunset is also incredible on the beach area, highlighting blue skies and the blue sea.

Even in the fall, the paths make for some gorgeous foliage filled images, and there’s nothing like a cozy snuggle session on a beach all to yourself.

Next door at Kettle Cove you’ll be greeted by a rockier coastline, so representative of Maine. But this area also has it’s own hidden gems with an adorable foot bridge and wooded paths behind the beach area.

If you’re lucky to arrive at low tide, you’ll find a wide beach on the opposite side of the bridge with plenty of room for the kids to run and dip their toes in the water.

And of course, no good beach session goes without a little exploration for some fun seashells, seaweed, and random treasures brought in by the tide.

And now I’m extra excited for this summer, the beach, and of course, ice cream. 🙂
