The weather was very chilly but this sweetheart braved the cold for her First Communion portrait. I loved her dress and her hair and her natural smile.
Here's my friend of 30 years and her beautiful, sweet, giggly boy. I was so excited to capture these five month portraits after we did his newborn photos back in November. EJ is the best little boy. He didn't care that we went through outfit changes, location changes, and made him roll over many, many times. Watching your friends and their families grow is a blessing.
We were all in Holden for a surprise party for my wonderful father-in-law, so my sister-in-law asked me to do a session for her family. Nola's Burberry dress was stunning against the backdrop. She commanded those two pups (and maybe mom and dad too-- she's just too cute!)
The O Family visited on a nice "spring" day... I say "spring" because I'm not sure when New England is going to let us have some typical weather! We did a few studio shots and some outdoor family ones. The best part of being a Rhode Island family photographer is utilizing small spots of land to create fun family portraits. With the right angle, I can usually work with almost any backdrop. Thank you, O Family! Hope to see you soon for some summer portraits!
I loved this purple inspired one year old cake smash. We had to bury a few cheerios in there to get her going but once she got through the frosting, I think she was very happy to find a few handfuls of cake inside. Her siblings were on hand to help out and we captured some beautiful family portraits as well.
My little Godson is one! This little sweetie pie smiled for his session from start to finish but his big brother's certainly helped get the giggles.
Santa had the cutest helper this past December! #allthehearteyes
Isn't it nice when your best friend is also your sibling? These two are so adorable. They took direction well and were particularly excited about the leaf throwing and rock climbing.
Oh fall foliage and golden sun set, you were so good to me for this beautiful couple's engagement photos. While the leaves were perfectly on fire with their color, these two and their love for one another stole the show.
I really love Mt. Hope as a setting and I think this family hit it out of the park with outfit choices! Are you looking to update your family portraits in 2018? Contact me today! I am currently booking outdoor portraits for April and beyond.
Wow! The difference in weather we saw within the hour we took these photos was crazy. Rain, clouds, sunny, dark...it was a little nerve wracking for me because we were using a private home for the shoot and I wanted to make sure we got done what we needed too. In the end, it worked out awesome because of the variety of looks the weather gave us!
I can only sum this session up by saying this: Leaves make kids happy. If you want to see their truest smiles, just give them something fun to play with! My sessions are laid back, casual and not posed. Let 2018 be the year you get your smile on!
