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 always talk about how much I love meeting new families. Sometimes I think I sound like a broken record. Maybe I do! It doesn’t make it any less true. With that being said I had such a great time meeting this family right here! Trevor was such a smiley little dude that you couldn’t help but love him. We met at Goddard Park to do a first birthday portrait with some family pics sprinkled in. For the grand finale… The cake smash!! When I found out his Grandpa was also a photographer I have to say I was a bit intimidated. I hope everyone in the family enjoys these photos for years to come the same way they’ve enjoyed Grandpa’s for so many years!
There is nothing I love more than babies! I am very thankful to have the job I do. Otherwise I would have to get my baby fix by having more of my own. It might end up a problem. Thankfully I get to see beautiful babies all the time like Aubrey. She is mom and dad’s first born, but their two cats might argue that. The weather was perfect so we were able to go outside to take the photos. That is always a treat for me since I love natural light. There was a tiny woodsy area next to the house where we did some family shots. Aubrey was about ready for some more food at that point so it was the perfect end to the session. She hadn’t eaten for 20 minutes! Who could blame her?
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!
