Fine art maternity portrait session in Covington, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio. All portraits by Kate Mannella Photography.

It’s the best feeling to photograph past couples as they prepare for a new stage of life. The first time I had the pleasure of photographing Kelsey and Keith was during their engagement session in September of 2018. Since that day, I’ve come to deeply admire these two and treasure the friendship that’s formed. When they asked me to come to Cincinnati for a maternity session, I was over the moon. I’d drive from Cleveland to Cinci a hundred times to serve this couple.

For their maternity portraits, we spent an hour together exploring the historic homes and cobblestone streets of Covington, KY. With each turn, we found something new and gorgeous to photograph. It was hot and humid but beautiful just the same. Nothing beats laughter and conversation with sweet friends!
