Birthday Portraits and Valentines

If you’ve been following me over the past 8 years you will recognize these cute faces!  I thought this was a suitable session to post the day before Valentine’s Day!  The first photos are of big sister.  She is a sparkplug to say the least!  I love taking her photos because of two reasons 1) she is comfortable around me and 2) she doesn’t like having me take her photos.  As funny as it sounds these two things are the perfect recipe for photos!  Since it’s all a big joke I get some great candids!  Second we have her brother who was born with a congenital heart defect.  He has had more surgeries in his first year than most adults will have in their entire lives.  It is actually CHD awareness week!  CHDs are the most common birth defect, affecting nearly 1% of all births in the U.S.  Most people are unaware of this.  I know I was!  More discussion will hopefully result in more research funding.  It has been a pleasure to see Silas and take his photos year after year.  He is truly a heart warrior.

Sister Portrait at the Studio

I had the pleasure of photographing this family when there was only one little girl. Fast forward two years and they’ve added in one more little cutie!  Both of these little ladies have birthday’s close to one another so we were able to do the girl’s birthday portraits in one session.  We listened to some T. Swift, read a book, and explored my building all while taking photos!  The girls did such a good job that they got themselves a visit to a playground!  Bribery works, people!

Cake Smash Session at the Studio – First Birthday Portrait

This was the cake smash that I thought would never happen! Every time we scheduled the session it would snow. This is not shocking considering the amount of snow we’ve gotten in the past month. FINALLY there was a break in all this crazy weather. We were able to do the session and it was worth the wait! This little lady was a pro! She made it one of the easiest cake smashes ever. The smiles kept coming, the cake was smashed, and the pictures look amazing! Happy Birthday, Amelia!!!

First Year Portrait at War Memorial Park in West Bridgewater, MA

A couple of months ago a client suggested the War Memorial Park as a spot for their family portrait. Since then I’ve been back a bunch of times! It’s a beautiful little spot that has so many great places for photos. Recently I returned to the park for little Leo’s first birthday photos. Mom and Dad brought some great props for the pics that included balloons, a pumpkin, and a great sign that had all facts about Leo. We chased Leo all over the place taking photos and just having a great time! It was the perfect fall portrait session!

Four Year Old Portrait Session – RI Portrait Photography

Ryan’s parents have brought him in for many mini sessions but this is the first time I was able to do a real deal portrait session of him.  I was excited!  Mini sessions can be a blur.  I see a lot of kids and not for too much time, but I always remembered Ryan.  He is just adorable!  I love his long hair and his parents always have him in great clothes.  It’s also always stuck in my head that it can take a minute for Ryan to warm up to the camera.  That was not the case now that he is four years old!  Ryan was chatting with me non stop and just being so darn cute!  I got great, great pics of this little guy!
