Swartz Family - Glen Park

The Swartz Family of five are a fun and playful bunch!  With a clear picture in mind, mom Emily really wanted to have a farm-like setting to shoot in.  Just short of cows roaming in the background - I think we nailed it.

Although Newport, Rhode Island is known for it’s amazing sunsets on the water, we made a late afternoon trek to Glen Park in Portsmouth to enjoy the new green grass of summer and countryside feel of its bucolic surroundings.

Newborn Shoot - Baby Lucas

Nina and Nate Longley welcomed sweet baby Lucas into their life just a few weeks ago.  Shot at home - This sweet newborn shoot captured Lucas, his mother and father alongside his newest cousin born just a few weeks prior.  If you plan to hire a professional photographer or choose to take photos of your own, here a few tips to keep in mind:

First, plan to feed your baby right before you try to photograph him/her so he’ll be more likely to fall asleep. Sleeping babes, have such a peaceful look, whether bundled up or posed nude - with their little arms and legs exposed.  Secondly, have backups of everything - outfits, blankets, diapers, food, etc!   You never know who these little guys!!  Thirdly, have fun and take your time.  Expect to take breaks in-between poses to feed, lull your babe or comfort them when needed.  The point is ti create a soothing and loving environment for everyone to enjoy their special moments together.      

 

 

The Mouligné Family at Sweet Berry Farm

Strolling through the evergreens at Sweet Berry Farm with the new Mouligné family was a treat.  Sweet baby Theo is just two months and all you would want in a babe.  Bubbles, smiles, and an adorable disposition.  We quickly took advantage of the setting sun and snapped a few pics before Theo had a chance to disagree with all the attention.  

Newport's Famed Point Area

Newport’s famed Point area is located across the water from Goat Island and boasts spectacular views of Newport Harbor, The Newport Bridge and beyond.  This neighborhood is well preserved and steeped in historic heritage.  The Winston Family is lucky to call this area their “home” as they love where they live and live where they love.  The waterfront and pier provided a great backdrop for our photo shoot where their adorable two children Charlie and Amelia showed off their cheeky smiles. 

Sandy Point Beach

With Christmas right around the corner - you can't help but be abuzz with holiday spirit.  These two sweet sisters embody all the love and adorableness one would hope for during the holidays.  Santa is still real in the eye of these two, and it shows!  Sandy Point Beach in Portsmouth was the backdrop for this super cute photo shoot…

The Gross Family

Kevin and Christine Gross are part of our extended family.  This sweet couple and their one-year John were photographed at Third Beach in Middletown at sunset.  That evening's dramatic clouds and coastal setting made for the perfect backdrop for this young family's photo shoot. 

Block Island - Family Road Tripping

For the past five years my husband's maternal side of the family comes together for an epic long weekend on Block Island.  Each day is filled with exploratory trips around the island, tons of laughs, and ends in an extraordinary "variety" show.  

Portsmouth Family Shoot

The Glen in Portsmouth, Rhode Island provides a myriad of places to shoot.  The Barth family of six and I hiked down tree-lined trails, across open fields, and woodland areas during this afternoon of fun.

First Beach Family Shoot

Pat and Shauna are loving parents to an adorable girl!  During this sunset shoot, the family strolled along First Beach's shoreline and boardwalk, enjoying the salty breeze.
