I started my portrait business with a facebook post for mini sessions 10 years ago. I was working for a photography team here in RI and I thought maybe I would try to do some work on my own. My first mini event was a huge success! Everyone who came to my first event came back to do more sessions with me and some still come to this day. After the first couple attempts I swore to never do these kinds of sessions outside again! The weather was too unpredictable, where would I take a break?! I never thought the possibility of a pandemic make me think otherwise! Spring sessions are coming soon! Again I’m doing two options… Inside mini’s and outside. I thought I would take this opportunity to share a mini I did this fall. You can do so much in a little bit of time!
What fun I had this holiday season taking pictures of all these cute kids! I posted some pictures on my Facebook page. Now I have some going up here, but I still haven’t covered everyone! I think I did pictures for almost all of my past clients and met so many new families on top of that. It was a pleasure and an honor to take your babies’ photos. As a Mommy of two I know how fast they change and sometimes you just want to freeze them at a certain age. Years from now I hope the pictures I took will bring you back to this particular time in their life. I’ve been getting a lot of holiday cards from clients that used my photo on their card. I have to say it makes me feel good!
So here are some of the many holiday pics taken over the past month or so. Enjoy!
If we were giving out awards for most smiles smiled in a 20 minute time span that award would go to Matthew. We should actually give it another award to his parents for making it happen. I heard a lot of craziness going on behind me while I was snapping away. I always miss out on the fun stuff! At one point while we were shooting Matthew came right over to me and sat on my lap. It seriously melted my heart and it possibly the cutest thing that has ever happened to me at a portrait shoot.
This family was referred to me by another client of mine. She warned me that these kids were some of the cutest I would ever see. She was right! It also helps when your Moms are on top of things. Not only were they in perfect beach outfits, but they also brought so many great “props” – an adorable knit stuffed mermaid, star fish, a cute stuffed doggie. Picture perfect add ons always help!
