2016 as a Rhode Island children's photographer was a great year- but of course, like anything that is worth the work, there's growing pains. I overhauled a lot of the business this year with small changes- new packaging, new website, new approach to what I photograph (pretty much eliminating weddings and newborns to focus on children and family work with a senior or engagement session here and there). While I'm still trying to catch up on blogging, I thought a lot about how to approach my sessions on the blog... a stream of photos with no text, text with photos that maybe no one reads, or text with a scrolling gallery...and I think that's the winner! My test for this is none other than my good friend Lisa's kids. Lisa has been a believer in me since we started teaching together at an elementary school a while back. She was part time and I've since moved on to teach the "big kids" but our ties to each other (and Rhode Island) are strong. Her kids are the sweetest- easy going, laid back and just happy to have their portrait taken. Definitely some of the easiest "work" I do all year.
