Most of the people who read my blog are family and friends (Hi gram!). Last year, I decided to take a break from weddings and focus on my children’s work. I love weddings but weekends with my little guy are very important to me right now so I haven’t committed to anything beyond what I already had booked. However, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to continue doing engagement sessions. I mean, love is a wonderful thing (had to get some Michael Bolton in there any way I can)! Suzi is Kate’s sister and Kate designs most of my sets and creates my smash cakes. Suzi and I are fellow audio book lovers and enjoy going for half price sushi at any opportunity. We had this whole day planned and ideas for sessions and then BAM. The wind overtook us and we practically blew over to new locations. Wandering Providence was fun though- lots of color, beautiful blowing hair and a great sky! I can’t wait for your big day and to work with Dawn Temple.
Jeremy stopped by the studio for a few new portraits. His eyes are the most beautiful shade of blue. I think my favorite thing about these photos is that Paw Patrol made it in. Can’t have a five year old without his trusty toys! Don’t ever be hesitant to include your child’s favorite book or toy in the photos. It will be a great reminder down the line.
I love that I can call my friend Julie with crazy ideas and she’s A OK with it. Like this time, when I told her to wake her kids up very early on a Saturday, drive an hour and meet me to do photos in the rain at a tulip farm! First of all, no one should ever listen to someone who says wake your kids up hahaha! It did turn out to be the perfect setting. Even though it was drizzling, the field was empty and the kids had the whole show garden to themselves. I loved taking their portrait and I ended up going back to grab a few of my son the next day. Be sure to check out Wicked Tulips next year. You don’t want to miss it!
This family is beautiful inside and out. I grew up with Michael and photographing his family has been so much fun. They ended up ordering a family portrait as a large canvas for over their fireplace and I received a photo of the final product. It looks great– don’t be afraid to order large canvases. They are such a statement piece for your home!
Heather and I planned this session with warm weather in mind but New England weather has taken us all by surprise this year. The day of Parker’s session was cloudy but as we pulled in to start the session, it started to pour. However, as they say, if you don’t like the weather in New England, wait a minute. Sure enough, after a quick stop at the library to play with the train set, we were able to get back out there. The clouds didn’t deter Parker from running around and seeing all the fun stuff the park had to offer (like a giant digger and backhoe behind a fence)!
