I love the location of my mini sessions this fall- it really gave families a lot of options! Barns, leaves, ivy— rustic farm equipment LOL. So glad I could help make these into a beautiful Christmas card.
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 :)
This absolutely beautiful family braved a busy beach night to capture these special times. So happy I got to work with them!
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!
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!
When your BFF has a baby, you do the Fresh 48 and the studio session!!! Twice the cuddles for me and so many fun memories for this family of five. It was awesome to be there as Ted's two big sisters met him.
This is the second time I have traveled to the F family's home to take photos of them in a more relaxed newborn session way. I like newborn sessions in home because I think it gives them a different feel- especially when siblings are involved. They can happily play with their toys while I photograph little bro! Here's some of my favorites from this session.
What a cool mama! Tara makes it seem like having three kids is the easiest thing in the world. If you follow her Instagram @taracceleste you will see them jet setting around RI going to folk festivals, food trucks, quilt museums, donut shops and a lot of libraries. Tara's husband, Matt, is the owner of my favorite photography studio (other than this one, of course!) Blueflash caters to the simple, romantic and modern bride. You will never see two shots the same with that crew. Matt and his team go out of their way to create unforgettable portraiture. I was lucky enough to be a guest at a wedding he photographed this weekend and we were viewing the portraits at the wedding. The bride and groom couldn't believe that during dinner, they were already seeing their ceremony and formal shots. A-mazing. But enough already...kick back and enjoy their cute family photos! PS- Tara made her dress.
This cutie gave mom and I a run for our money! She was not sure about the fuzzy rug and the lights but once a few toys came out, it was all smiles. Happy birthday, B! It was great to meet you!
I never post weddings to my website...mostly because my main job and passion is photographing children but every now and then I am asked by a friend or friend of a friend to photograph a wedding and I am so honored to do so. Suzi is a very close friend of mine (her sister is one of my partners in crime, Kate Caito) and she wanted me to photograph her wedding but still be a guest so I thought about how to make that happen. Then I thought of the wonderful Dawn Temple and asked her if she would like to embark on this journey with me! I was able to photograph Suzi getting ready, her first look and some formals and then I did a quick outfit change and became a guest! It was the best of both worlds. I love you, Suzi and Matt! Now, Suzi, go finish reading your book so we can meet for sushi and have book club!
These three sweet kids pulled off a surprise for their mom after the holidays. We originally did a session and the weather did not cooperate. We tried to reschedule but with the kids away at college, it wasn't working out so we secretly hatched a plan. They snuck out of the house to get Chipotle and we did this session. I tagged their mom on FB and their parents were shocked! It was really fun to do this and they are really awesome "kids."
