Pushaw Lake Proposal/ Emily and Ethan

 Old Town Maine Engagement Photos

AH! Another proposal in the books! Proposals are such an adreniline rush for me! It's like mission impossible- Tom Cruise flying in from the ceiling style- photography. The planning and excitement leading up to that pinnacle moment is so fun! Last Christmas Ethan's mother bought a couple of sessions from me to give as gifts for her children (a GREAT idea by the way ;) ). Ethan and Emily decided to wait a little bit for their session that their son Carter was a little bigger. 

We scheduled the shoot for a Sunday and a few days before Ethan called to tell me that he was going to propose during the shoot! I was so excited for them! We devised a small plan so that we'd both know when it would happen and so that I could set them up in the best spot. We were already planning to have the shoot at Emily and Ethan's home on Pushaw lake. It was such a beautiful spot and so important to them. We started our session with a few family photos in front of this little sweet shed next to Emily and Ethan's home. Just look at their sweet baby Carter on Ethan's shoulders!

Then we went over to the beach in front of their home where I knew Ethan planned to propose. I posed them then set myself up some distance away and yelled "Perfect!" (Our cue word) and it happened! Gah! These next few shots make me so happy.

I can't thank these three enough for letting me a part of such a special moment! Congratulations Emily, Ethan, and Carter! What a beautiful family you are.
