Family Portrait in Providence, RI – RI Family Portrait Photography

How awesome is it when you go to take a picture of someone and you see them “web slinging” in your direction? I will tell you that I think it’s pretty cool. Robby likes Spiderman and he was not afraid to show it while posing for photos. I’m so happy that Mom and Dad didn’t tell him to stop it. This is who he is at this age so why not capture it in the photos? It also adds some personality to the pictures. When Stella tried to do her own spiderman hand gesture Robby did put the kabosh on that. When she wasn’t teasing her brother she was being the cutest little girl ever, playing shy. Very adorable! I do get jealous of some of my family portraits and make plans to bring my own kids to certain locations. This session definitely qualifies as one of those…

Love the personality in these pictures!

2011 Rewind :: Preschoolers and Big Kids – RI Portrait Photography

My final rewind post and my final post of 2011!  What an amazing, amazing year!  I can’t wait for 2012 – to meet new familes and to see everyone again.  2012 is going to be a big year for new siblings!  Four of my families are expecting a new baby this year!!  I can’t wait to meet the little ladies and gents!

This last batch of photos includes some of my favorites kids and photos.  Older kids can be a little intimidating because if they don’t like you…  well you know it!  They have hit a point of self awareness.  Now all of a sudden they have opinions on what they want to do for the pictures and how they want to look.  I love it when they can have some fun with me – when they say “Take a picture of this!” and do something pretty ridiculous.  In this post is a family I’ve done pictures for around 6 times now!  They love pictures, my kind of family!  I love my sassy rockstar with her tinsel star backdrop.  The one’s in her roller skates are awesome!  A lot of these kids’ parents were my friends in high school.  My daughter also makes an appearance in this one.  She is sitting on ledge in front of the roll up grate.  Speaking of my little girl this post features her best friend from birth, her best friend from Gymboree and her best friend for school.  She is a lucky girl to have so many buddies.  Putting these posts together has made me feel lucky as well.  Thanks for letting me photograph what you love the most – your families!  Happy New Year!

Logan’s Hip Portrait Shoot in Providence, RI – RI Baby Photography

I couldn’t have had a better subject to shoot in Providence.  Logan is exactly what you think of when you think of a city girl except she is a toddler.  She is intelligent – She knew so many words and even some letters and numbers.  She is hip – Check the outfit!  She is independent – She was running down the street like she owned the place.  Lots of smiles and great locations made it really hard to pick just a couple for the blog so I just had to post some extra!

Usually gates like this are massive so it was nice to find a toddler sized one.

So happy!  Love those little teeth!

Having a blast in the city…

Best Friends in Providence, RI – RI Portrait Photography

Before we go any further here I just want to make one thing clear – Brett and Kate are NOT dating!  That was one of the first things that was said when we met for the shoot.  I was told not to bring the romance to these photos.  Done.  I’ve never actually done a Best Buds shoot and it was fun.  I think that shows in the photos.  Today just happens to be Brett’s birthday so I wanted to get this post up today in honor of that.  Happy Birthday, Brett!  I hope you guys like the pictures!  PS Kate, I know you are going to be totally critical about how you look so I just want to say that I personally think you look beautiful in all of them!

A Peek at Melissa’s Maternity Portrait – RI Maternity Photography

Nine months may seem like a long time when you are pregnant, but it really is a blip on the radar in the grand scheme of things.  You may be a little exhausted, maybe sick to your stomach at times, but once you feel that little flutter of movement it is all worth it!  I don’t think I have to tell anyone how amazing it is to have a life grow inside of you.  Instead I will remind everyone to do something special to remember this time in thier lives.  I was very reluctant to have pictures taken of myself when I was pregnant with my second child, but I did them.  The pictures I have of my daughter, Zoe, and my pregnant self are now so special to me.  At the time I was uncomfortable and ready to pop.  I don’t see that when I look at the pictures now.  They bring me back to a time filled with excitement and anticipation to finally meet the little guy who would complete our family.

Melissa on the other hand has always wanted to do maternity pictures.  I was happy to be the one who got to take them for her!  She is expecting a little boy in September.  In an email she told me ” Oh and I’m thrilled he’s a boy! I wanted a boy and still get teary every time I think about him! I’m thrilled I get to be his mom!”
