Colt State Park Maternity and Family Portrait Session – RI Family Photography

I had such a great time photographing this beautiful family!  When I met them I was initially impressed by the sharp outfit choices.  If you show up for a portrait session and your child has a pocket square in his jacket be sure that I’m going to get excited!  It’s all in the details!  The entire family had a great vibe and seemed very comfortable being in front of the camera.  All these things make for a happy photographer!  Since this maternity session the baby has been born!!  Dad called and told me that not only has he been a dream for the nurses in the hospital but he has thee most beautiful eyes.  I hope I get to meet this little dude!  Congrats on the new arrival!!  So happy that I was able to capture this happy time in your lives!

Family Portrait at Roger Williams Park – RI Maternity Photography

The day after this family portrait I got a Facebook message from a friend saying that she saw me chasing geese in the park with a two year old. For those of you who have done a portrait session at Roger Williams with me will know how funny this is. I tell everyone that I am a little scared of those geese (they are kind of mean). On the other hand Ryan was not scared of them at all. As a matter of fact chasing those crazy birds was what made him happiest at our portrait session. So chasing birds is what we did!  Mom was very pregnant at the session and since we have taken these photos they have a welcomed a new baby to the family!  Congrats on the new addition!!  You might see the new little one on this blog soon…

Maternity Portrait in Bristol, RI

What a treat it was to do Stephanie’s maternity session! We picked a gorgeous location, the lighting was amazing and mom and dad to be were adorable. How could I miss? Stephanie brought so many cute things from the baby shower to incorporate into the shoot – a banner with Olivia’s name on it, little shoes she’ll be wearing and a cute bird’s nest favor from the shower.  I will be seeing them soon for a newborn session when this little girl decides to make her grand entrance into the world!  Can’t wait to meet her!

Melanie and Mike’s Maternity Shoot in Newport, RI – RI Maternity Photography

I love maternity sessions!  It’s one of those sessions that you didn’t know you wanted until after the baby is born.  Thankfully Melanie and Mike knew they wanted to capture this short time in their lives before it was too late.  You are only pregnant for 9 months.  It seems like forever when you are going through it, but it really isn’t a long time.  I think a maternity session is about the soon to be parents.  This is a time of excitement and anticipation.  Newport has been a big part of Melanie and Mike’s relationship.  They had their engagement photos taken there, the wedding took place there so what better spot for their maternity shoot?  Melanie has been doing a pregnancy exercise boot camp.   I’m truly impressed with this since when I was pregnant the most I did was walk across the house.  Her trainer gave her a pair of sneakers for their new little girl.  I’m so happy she thought to bring them to our session.  It’s a great way to remember the time before the baby and everything that happened leading up to this amazing moment…

Steve and Leanne’s Maternity Shoot in East Greenwich – RI Maternity Photography

Steve and Leanne were shopping for baby items at the fabulous store, Bellani Maternity, when they spotted my photos on the wall.   Luckily they contacted me about doing a maternity.  I’m lucky because it really was a pleasure to meet this lovely couple and be able to document this exciting time in their lives.  Spending time with them I know two things for sure.  The first thing is that they love each other, really love each other.  The second is that they are SO excited to have this little boy and be parents.  Whenever I do a maternity shoot I like to ask some questions to see what’s been going on during the pregnancy.  It makes the photos a little more personal.  Steve and Leanne have been doing renovations on their house for pretty much the duration of the pregnancy.  This is where they are going to one day live with this baby that’s cooking.  The baby is almost ready, the house is almost ready.  It’s nice to be able to capture this moment when (and where) so many great things are about to happen.

Our second stop was this cool dock close by…

Ending with my favorite!!! Love it!
