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.
I loved getting to see this family again! Having families come back to me year after year is the greatest joy of this business. Seeing kids grow up is what makes this job fun to do weekend after weekend :)
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!
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!
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.
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!
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 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!
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!
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!
