When I started doing photos for this family there were only two girls. Magically a third one appeared (you can ask your Mommy and Daddy how that happens) and my job got harder! These girls are the sweetest things. They are active little ladies for sure. Always jumping and running around. Before we started I was thinking of all the things I could do to make them all sit and actually look at me at the same moment. Obviously time goes by and the girls were bigger than last year (duh). Maybe they are more mature, maybe the stars were aligned for perfect photos. Whatever it was the girls were amazing! We got lots of great photos. Everyone looked at the camera… Mission accomplished!
Way back when I did my first mini sessions in this very same spot I met this family for the first time. Big Brother was only a less than a year old. He had the most gorgeous blue eyes I’ve every seen! Fast forward and here they are again. This time there is another beautiful baby boy who also was lucky enough to get the same color eyes. I love seeing families grow and having the opportunity to capture it for them is an honor.
I was definitely looking forward to doing this portrait because I knew in advance how cute these kids are! My daughter plays with these guys so I’ve been admiring their little faces for a while now. Mom warned me that it was going to be tough getting a genuine smile from Liam, but thankfully we were able to get some out of him. His sister on the other hand was ready with a smile at the drop of a hat. Not only did they show me their smiles, but I also got to see their mad faces (not featured on the blog today. sorry). I showed some of these to my daughter and she approved. My little girl always tells me when she doesn’t like my photos so I must have done a good job.
Lots of babies do cake smash portrait sessions, but Sophie had an extra special one. All of her grandparents were in town so her Moms included them in the session. They got to pose for photos and witness the messy finale first hand! Thankfully Sophie was pretty careful with her cake so I was able to get lots of great photos of her. As always Lauren from Cake-tique made us the big cupcake. Because Sophie was pretty neat about her smashing the cake was in good enough condition to bring home. It was a win, win!
When Silas’s Mom contacted me about doing a photos of her little guy I was beyond flattered. Mom and Dad are both amazing artists, jewelry designer and owners of Sue Freda Studios in Tiverton, RI. So, really how could I not be flattered? Silas was more involved with sticks than photo taking. Who could blame him? My camera lens is really not as visually stimulating as trees, dirt and rocks. I get it. Thankfully we were able to get him to break his concentration here and there for some photos.
