These three cuties ran all around and kept little sister smiling throughout our 45 minute shoot. The breeze was coming off the water and was a perfect day- the definition of what summer should be.
This portrait session was a gift to Grandma when she retired from teaching. Her goal was a canvas print for her new kitchen and I was so excited to see the photos they chose to print and hang. While taking the photos is a ton of fun, seeing the finished product on the wall is full circle! Don't forget to create those prints and hang those canvases.
This little guy came into the world with a bang on the 4th of July! What a firecracker!
I adored doing this in home session. I don't do a lot of newborn photography but when I do, I really enjoy those tiny little toes, sweet little grins and fuzzy hair. Mom and Dad laughed the whole session which made it fun and relaxed. Congrats to the new family of three!
This is my little guy's Kindergarten teacher and her family. I can't say enough about what a wonderful teacher she is and how she helped him grow this year. I was really excited to meet her family and her kids are so lucky to have her as a mom!
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.
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 work with Aaron's mom so I was really excited to be able to take his senior portrait. He is just months away from making Eagle Scout, which is such an honor. I loved being able to take his yearbook portraits! Congrats!
My friend Lisa gave her brother and his family a gift card for a portrait this fall. The weather was perfect for their session and their yard gave us plenty of room to bring out the classic cars!
Last year, Kate Taylor from Polar Square Designs came up with an awesome concept- let's give back to first responders. I loved the concept but was late to the party on getting involved so I said "2017 is the year!" I got in touch with Kate the second she put out a call and next thing you know, over 16 photographers were out there photographing 150 families for no cost. It was SO awesome. Here's a bunch from different families. I had a blast and hope the families themselves did too!
We took advantage of the blue skies and warm temperatures in May to do some senior photos for these great kids! The three of them are graduates of Cranston West and off to URI and New England Tech in the fall. They had a great relationship with each other and laughed from start to finish. Best wishes to you all as you start this new chapter!
On a rainy April day, Sosi and her mom stomped in some puddles, played by a stream and danced all around. Happy birthday, Sosi! It's so much fun seeing you grow!
Oh those little cheeks! Miss E came to visit for her first birthday portrait and her big sister was very proud of her. She helped me through the whole session and my favorite photos were the two girls and their mom together. Such a special time.
This little guy was one of my first studio newborn sessions, so it was great to have him back in the studio with his mom's crafty cake making skills. I happened to mention a tin tub would be a fun end to the session and lo and behold, they happened to have one that was very important to their family. Family heirloom and artifacts make a session that much more meaningful! Love it!
