The weather was a "cool" 96 degrees in the shade but the kids were all smiles. Once we got the serious photos over, it was on to splashing in the water! Win!
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!
Her mom and dad planted these tulips and daffodils while Mom was in labor- it was a lot of fun to see her enjoy sitting among them this spring!
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!
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.
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!
Thank you so much to the 74 families I worked with in 2017! It has been another successful year at SPM Photo and I look forward to seeing your families grow in 2018!
The weather this summer made it hard to schedule a lot of jobs. This poor family rescheduled four times but I think we got the pick of the summer for the day we chose- just enough wind for the pictures to show their spirit. Check out super-talented Meg's Etsy page for custom jewelry. I've ordered several things and have been so impressed.
The S family-- you gave me all the feels with this session. It was so unposed, spur of the moment and casual. I loved every minute. Sandy toes, hair blowing in the breeze and dancing in the waves. My kind of Sunday Funday.
