In a previous post, you may have noticed Jen in the same location. These two friends booked their session the same day and helped each other out with the kids during each other's sessions. What a dream! We had so much fun taking these pictures because the "G'' family is all about fun. Tommy was the star of the show with his little sunglasses and when their new baby arrives next month, we already have some ideas on how to re-take a few of these with baby G as the new addition!
Jen contacted me about doing some maternity photos and we chose a bird sanctuary. We definitely had a good laugh when we arrived and realized that it would probably be a little more lush in the summer but it was perfect for the session- not a lot of people, blue sky and water front location and fields. Ella is going to be a fabulous big sister and this doubled as her two year session. I can't wait to photograph their new addition which will be here before we know it!
Kelly has been my best friend for many years so it was important to me to do her maternity photos in a way that I knew captured her and Aram's personality. We tried to find a day that was sunny and had an unusual location and while we thought "old mill" would be awesome, we laughed at how lame it was. Overall though, we had a lot of fun and that's all that matters. Anytime a natural smile comes out, the rest will fall into place.
I think that being a teacher is one of the greatest jobs in the world (photographer, a close second!). I work with the nicest people and have had the opportunity to capture my colleague's kids time and time again. It's such a honor to know all of these people outside of the classroom, especially after seeing the magic they work in the classroom. Diane was the first person at my new school to reach out and want to collaborate in the library with me so this one is extra close to my heart.
Kate is the mama to quite possibly the most photographed kid ever. And with baby #2 on the way, this one is sure to follow. Last Sunday, while the guys watched the Patriots, we took a spin down to Edgewood in Cranston and did some photos around the area. The sun was just coming down and we shot until dark. I know it's tough for pregnant ladies to be up, down, sitting, standing, on rocks, on benches and more, but Kate did everything I asked! Thanks Kate! Looking forward to the new little one. Auntie Steph has her camera all ready.
Julie is one of my oldest and dearest friends. She is due with her first baby next week and when we went to lunch the other day, we took a few minutes to capture a couple pictures for her to remember this time. She told me she would be brave and let me put them on my website. Thanks for letting me take these- it was an honor!
Well, even though their baby was technically "at" the shoot, I couldn't put Cari and Gary with the other post I did today about babies! They needed one all their own- Cari and Gary picked Wickford for their maternity pictures and they turned out perfectly. The lighting was beautiful and Cari's outfit brought out her radiant green eyes! You could tell how excited they were to be expecting a new baby (who coincidentally, was born last week! Congratulations!) and Cari's mommy instinct came out when she saw a duck in distress- it turns out the duck just had a nasty little quahog that clamped on his foot but he was soon able to wiggle it off :) Overall, it was a perfect shoot and I wish you guys many happy, sunny days ahead with your new little bundle.
Baby Roma should be arriving in a few weeks and Janis and Joe wanted to commemorate the journey by doing photos in Narragansett. One idea Janis had was that she wanted her favorite wedding photo to be recreated with her pregnant. I think it was an awesome idea. From here, I could see them recreating the pose when Roma is here and for years to come. Although it was cloudy and threatened to rain at any point, we had a great time.
