2011 Rewind :: Babies – RI Baby Photography

I have two children.  The plan has always been to have two and only two, one boy and one girl.  Luckily the plan worked, but sometimes I have moments when I am going to miss not having another baby.  This is where all your babies come in!  I just love being around your babies!  During a portrait shoot you are probably a little annoyed that the little bugger has been smiling at everything all morning and now that the camera is in front of them they decided to be “so serious”.  Meanwhile I’m so happy just hear them make funny noises or watch them marvel at a piece of grass or maybe a rock.  Being around your babies helps me get past those feelings about missing out on having another one.  It takes the edge off, so to speak.

So thank you, Babies of 2011, for giving me my baby fix and just for being so darn cute!  Tomorrow it’s that dirty word that starts with a T – Toddlers AKA 2 year olds!!

Birthday Portraits at the Park – RI Children’s Photographer

If you’ve been to my blog before chances are you’ve seen these two little guys.  They are my best customers and two of my favorite kids to take pictures of.  Recently they both celebrated their birthdays.  Emma turned 5 years old and Nicholas is now 3!  What better occasion to take some pictures than a birthday?

Outfit changes are always fun at a portrait shoot.  Emma picked out this dress because it is so fancy – just like she is!

A portrait session with Nicholas would not be complete without his serious close up.

Matthew’s Beach Mini Shoot – RI Baby Photographer

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.

Cousins Beach Mini Shoot – RI Family Portrait Photographer

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!
