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.      

 

 

Ryan Lee Crosby at Sachuest Point

American guitarist, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Boston, Massachusetts, Ryan Lee Crosby is a versatile, exploratory musician with a restless drive to create.  Crosby's unique sound is a fusion of American blues and world music influences, which he performs on 12 and 22 string guitars.  Crosby was looking for a few images to accompany his new album and website  - so we headed outdoors on a super foggy day!  The inclement weather created an allure similar to Crosby's unassuming, folky swagger.  Most of the shots were captured at Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge as well as inside my home.

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. 

The Sybor Family Middletown shoot

The Sybor's are a fun and vivacious Navy family of five, stationed in Newport on a sanctioned educational sabbatical.   The original plan was to meet out at the beach - but the wind was whipping that day, so we quickly came up a Plan "B."  Photographed near sunset, the beautiful bucolic backdrop made for a perfect summer family session.
