Baby Sarah in Newport, RI – RI Baby Photographer

About a year ago I had the pleasure of photographing Jen and Brad’s wedding at Castle Hill in Newport, RI.  This year I headed to Castle Hill to see them again, but this time to photograph their beautiful baby girl, Sarah!  She was just about a month old.  I don’t think I’ve ever photographed a baby this age who loved the camera more than Sarah.  She was mesmerized by it, always staring right into my lens and even smiling.  Add the cuteness and it made my job way too easy!

She has good-looking parents so that always helps.

See what I mean?  Absolutely loving the camera!

I love her expressions in these two pictures.

I couldn’t pick a favorite between the next three photos so I’m posting them all.  They are all too cute to not share.

Only a week old – RI Newborn Photography

Ben has probably doubled in size since I took these pictures back in May.  His mommy wanted me to hold off on the blog until the birth announcements went out.  I can relate – I don’t show anyone our Christmas card photo until the cards have been released.  Finally I get to post pictures of this beautiful little guy!  The ones I took of him and his big brother, Sam, are some of the cutest pictures ever…

I think Sam would have sat there all day with him brother if we had let him.  He was so gentle…

And he beamed when I said he was a good big brother.

Love these!

Alexander’s First Birthday Portrait Part Two – RI Baby Photographer

Today is officially Alexander’s first birthday!  What better time to post the second half of his first birthday pictures?!  We pretty much scheduled this portrait around whether or not these daffodils had bloomed.  My father in law is a professor at Salve Regina.  He was on daffodil lookout for us!  A big thanks to him because we might have missed out on this awesome location! 

I’ve done some engagement pictures in this same spot, but really this location was made for a little baby!  Adults are just too big to get the full effect.

Time for some sweets!  Alex was more interested in the candle at first…

obviously that didnt’ last long.

His mind is blown!

Alexander’s First Year Portrait in Newport Part 1- RI Baby Photography

Alexander is turning a year old any day now!  The first year goes by so fast!  I am always honoured to do newborn shoots and first year portraits.  I think they are such special times for the parents.  Alex’s parents were married in Newport so what better spot to do his first year portrait. At first I had a different spot on the beach in mind.  Just on a whim I decided to drive up the road to see if there was anything that caught my eye.  I saw this boardwalk and it was a done deal!  I’m so happy I spotted it!  Michelle, I hope these pictures are worth the splinters and sand we had to battle! 

Stayed tuned for Part Two of Alex’s birthday portrait extravaganza!!
