Collin’s Portrait at the Studio – RI Children Photography

What a beautiful little boy, Collin, is!  Blue eyes, brown hair and the most adorable smile.  He is also a “Mama’s boy”.  I sort of hate the term, but that’s the only way to put it.  There’s nothing wrong with loving your Mom a lot!  Collin took a little bit to warm up (despite my wonderful rendition of “Elmo’s Song”).  Even when he was comfortable Mom still had to be very close by.  I think it’s adorable.  It may also mean that Mommy is doing a pretty good job making her baby feel safe and secure.  That’s what Mommy’s do!

He was having a great time playing with my reflector.  Actually he couldn’t have picked a better place to stand!

Mommy had a secret to making Collin laugh…

So adorable!

All the kids love to look outside the window at my studio.  Especially if they like trucks.  There is a garage across the street.

Mackenzie’s First Year Portrait – RI Baby Photographer

A year ago Mackenzie was born in the middle of a huge snow storm.  Now she gets to celebrate her first birthday in the warmest January I can remember!  Mom and Dad are having a big birthday party this Saturday to celebrate.  We did two outfit changes AND a cake smash.  Mackenzie was much more interested in touching the cake than eating it.  As a matter of fact she got a chill when she took her first taste of frosting.  A literal sugar rush.  After that she wasn’t really into eating it as much as playing with it.  Eating, playing, it was still all really cute!

Baby Roman – RI Newborn Photography

A couple of weeks back I did a maternity shoot with the beautiful Aisha and handsome hubs, Dave.  At the shoot we had a chat about how Aisha was a little nervous that the baby might come late.  Apparently Dave and Aisha are late for everything so it only makes sense that their offspring would follow suit.  Baby Roman decided to start rebelling sooner than later.  He made his entrance two weeks early.  I guess he wanted to be home for Christmas!  Roman is a perfect mix of his mom and dad.  Such a handsome little man!  He was very cooperative with us and our crazy ideas.  I actually think we might have been boring him because he could hardly keep his eyes open.

Chillin’

I love this one!

Usually I hate to see wrinkles (mainly mine), but in this case they are adorable!

Stretching…

Aisha bought some cute little knitted accessories.  I love this sleep sac!

My favorite foot photo ever

It’s hard being 2 weeks old.

This antique barber chair was Dave’s father’s.

What to wear for your family portraits – RI Family Portrait Photography

People are always asking me what they should wear for their family portraits.  I usually go on about color pallettes and matching without looking too matchy.  I have an easier time with images than words (duh).  So, I’ve decided to put together some what to wear inspiration for everyone.  This will also make life easier for me.  Now when someone asks what do I wear I will be prepared with photos to go along with my ramblings.  Enjoy!
