Hello! Welcome to my blog, where you can find stories behind some of the photo sessions that I have done. I will also be linking some useful information that you might find helpful when planning a photography session of your own! Enjoy!
It was the most beautiful fall day for a photo session in New England. The weather was perfect, no wind, the leaves were peaking and the sunlight gorgeous!
We started out with the “big brother” looking at his sisters…..think it actually brought a smile to this fella’s face!
Think we got a but of a smile? He is a tough one! It is hard to be in the middle of these two bookends
Just love the colors that popped on this day!
Argh! It is so hard to endure these photo sessions!
Really hard work indeed! Someone needs a break.
The girls started to have fun!
Trying for some spectacular backlight!
Mom needed new “school” photos. Just LOVE this location!!! ….and the cuties!
Someone wanted to see how close he could get to the camera!
Can you say “photo bomb” and silly faces????
One of my favorites! Just love the love between twins under the beautifully lit trees! Could the leaves just stay all winter???
It was fun to photograph these two sisters, for their First Communion portraits. We were lucky enough to be allowed into the Parish Center at their church. It was a great spot, with beautiful windows and lots of natural light. We started with the set up first…
What a cutie she is….Jaquelyn
….Victoria’s turn….(and FYI, she is a mini version of her mom! )
…and, of course, we had to have a little fun acting like siblings!
It was an honor to capture these two cuties!
You would never believe that this family session was done on one of the COLDEST fall days we had! The head of the family wanted to have a nice, colorful, fall backdrop taken at a favorite New England location. A few days prior to the session date, I checked the site out. I searched for some of the best spots with the most colorful foliage. Mother Nature had some different ideas when the actual date came along. First of all, it was a big undertaking for this family to find a day which would work for all 17 members. The forecast called for some pretty nippy temperatures, which did not change! There were some windy days, leading up to that cold day, so most of the foliage had blown away. There went most of the pretty leaves which I had spotted just days earlier.
We made the best of it, and this was the final outcome. If you only knew how truly cold and damp it felt!! It cannot be seen in their faces.
New Englanders should be used to weather changes. Most of us would rather have a sunny, warm day nice enough for venturing outdoors. As I sit here thinking about those kinds of days, I am reminded that we are in the midst of another polar vortex. Yes…arctic temps for days in a row. I decided to think back to last winter, and pull up some images taken after the Blizzard Nemo. All of the images below were taken in the quaint village of Wickford, RI. My heart has a special place there…. Brrr is was cold then! Gray and stormy……..however did make for some peaceful images. One of my favorite spots, the Town Beach, has three trees that are always fun to see in each season.
How lucky was I to be able to travel to Naples, Florida for the Christmas holiday! Not only was I able to photograph this wonderful family, but I was also very happy to be a part of their family for 10 days. It was the first time the four of them had all been together in quite a while, so what better time to take a family portrait? (of course I had the plan in my head and they were NOT going to get out of it!
I couldn’t ask for better smiles…
This beautiful couple will be married for 50 years this coming February! Can you believe? I would say they don’t even look 50!
Can you tell which sibling is the clown? (hint….the one sitting down!)
There is nothing as sweet as a mom with her two baby boys…..did I say baby? Well, there is lots of love here….eek!…… The setting was on the Lake right behind their property. We were lucky to catch the last of the sunset. It was a tough time rearranging a day when everyone was around during the daylight hours!
How about the handsome men of the family……I must say, I got to hang out with two of them at the beach and pool! Sorry ladies, part of the perks!
This one brought tears to my eyes! Mom was overly joyed to have me “force” them into a family photo shoot, as her Christmas gift! It was worth lugging an extra 50lbs of equipment on the plane! (luckily I had help in the lugging department!)
…..and more…..(I think they were trying to be Crockett and Tubbs, however I think it was more like Abbott and Costello…or Felix and Oscar………….maybe Bert and Ernie!)
We couldn’t leave without a visit from the momma duck and her babies!
