When Silas’s Mom contacted me about doing a photos of her little guy I was beyond flattered. Mom and Dad are both amazing artists, jewelry designer and owners of Sue Freda Studios in Tiverton, RI. So, really how could I not be flattered? Silas was more involved with sticks than photo taking. Who could blame him? My camera lens is really not as visually stimulating as trees, dirt and rocks. I get it. Thankfully we were able to get him to break his concentration here and there for some photos.
Still can’t believe this little dude is a year old now!! It seems like yesterday I was just shooting Mom and Dad’s wedding! Now here is this little guy. Before we know it he’ll be quoting Star Wars movies with Dad! Then when I do his senior portraits he will be making fun of Dad for quoting Star Wars. He may also complain that he has to have “that tired old photographer” take his senior pictures. Enough of that! Let’s enjoy the agreeable, smiley little baby we have here! Mom had some awesome outfits, birthday hats, and a wagon to boot. It made for a fun and easy portrait session with one of my favorite families!
I’ve had the pleasure of watching this family grow over the years. Stella and Shane hired me to do their wedding photography. The wedding took place at one of my favorite venues, Harkness Memorial Park in CT. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with so many flowers. Fast forward to 2013… I’m meeting Stella and Shane once again at Harkness. The park is just as gorgeous but one thing is very different. Instead of doing photos of just Stella and Shane this time they brought there adorable daughters for the photos! How beautiful these girls are!! This is the third family portrait session we have done and I really can’t wait to see them again!
I have been thinking. I think I’m going to officially start limiting my children’s portraits to only families with one 6 month old. It might hurt my business, but there isn’t an easier time to take photos of a baby! They can sit up, but they can’t move yet. Everything is awesome and makes them smile. It’s a piece of cake! Colton was no exception to this rule. He was as pleasant and smiley as a baby could be. Mom and Dad have already scheduled a cake smash for him later in the year. I’m sure he’ll be just as happy, but we shall see if he actually sits still for us!
This portrait session has been a long time in the making! Mom contacted me around Thanksgiving. She had a vision of a family portrait in a rural setting with fun farm style fences. We put our heads together and came up with some different locations. Unfortunately we were missing the fences. One day she found the perfect location with the fences we had been dreaming of. It was on private property but that didn’t stop her! She asked permission to do photos on the land and viola! Here we are after some weather cancellations and lots of planning! I know how excited everyone was to do these photos and how much research/planning went into this. Thanks for having me help make the vision a reality!
