Sweet & Simple Newborn Session

How Sweet is this precious baby boy???

You wouldn’t know it but This Mama’s boy gave us a run for our money!

Sometimes we complicate things by going a little overboard with props and wraps and backdrops, and who wouldn’t want to I mean they are all so cute and there are so many options.

This little guy had other plans in mind which did not include leaving Mom’s side or getting into a belly pose… He put us in our place and reminded us to keep things simple.  I photographed this session right in the family kitchen using just a few simple wraps and ideas Mom and I had.  We were still able to keep with the rustic natural toned theme of baby’s nursery.  And I surprised Mom with this puppy hat I already had in my collection to match his puppy bedding.

And wasn’t it nice of him to give us so many picture perfect faces!  Mom especially loved the eyes open portrait with the puppy hat.  Lets face it when it comes to portraits the baby runs the show.  I had a Dad call me a Baby Whisperer in the hospital last week.  My response:  “He whispers right back.”

All and All His portraits turned out beautiful and Mom will have a great story to tell him one day…

So if your dreaming of a portrait session but stressing over where to go or what to wear or how will your baby behave – Don’t! We can keep it Sweet & Simple! It’s much more important to capture these moments before they pass by.

I mean look at this face!

I can’t wait to work on some artistic portrait composites with this little guy’s photos.  For more of my one of a kind portraiture work head over to this blog article Newborn Portraiture

Sweet Sunshine Newborn Session

Check out this little Cherub’s session.  She was all Sunshine, Flowers, and Funny Faces!

YELLOW… For some reason I’m all about the color yellow this year (as if you hadn’t noticed).

Isn’t it such a happy color?  There’s something bright and exiting, yet soft and soothing at the same time.  I remember as a kid when I would sleep at my grandmother’s the sun would shine in the window where I was sleeping like no other place in the whole world.  It woke me up and made me feel warm and happy.  Like yellow there is no other color like it in the whole world and it’s so warm and happy.  It can be Vintage, yet Modern.  Happy yet Moody.

It’s Sensational!

When I was little my entire bedroom was yellow.  I wonder if that means something?

Anyway I thought this little angel looked gorgeous in yellow.

And talk about vintage. She also reminded me of that Audrey Hepburn movie Funny Face.  If you haven’t seen it it is a MUST.  Once we woke her up she was all about Funny Faces and putting on a show.  Anyway it’s a musical and Fred Astaire sings this song to her:

“I love your Funny Face, your Sunny Funny Face…”  ~Classic~

Check out this Sunny, Funny, Face!!!

How precious is this sweet baby boy with his more than proud big sister and loving Mama??!!

I especially loved creating Tug Boat Baby and Fern Baby featured below.

I have been working on some new skills over the past year turning all my newborn sessions into beautiful works of art with my own digital backdrop creations.  I have always loved bringing the outdoors in and incorporating natural props and textures into each session.  I love nature and the outside world so much and what is more natural than a new little life, a tiny baby, an amazing gift to the world?

Using my own landscape nature portraits I can composite each new bundle of joy into the portrait creating one of a kind pieces of art.  You can help me create your own babies special portrait by telling me what theme you’ve used in the nursery, what hobbies your family loves, and what colors make your heart leap with joy.

The Fern Baby Portrait background below was taken in Oban, Scotland at the ancient Gylen Castle Grounds.  My son was studying abroad and I had the opportunity to visit him last Summer.  So exciting!

Tug Boat Baby was taken in Scituate, MA on my way home from photographing a wedding in this quaint little harbor town. I saw this scene and had to pull over to get my shot!  I had no idea three years later I would be using it for a Newborn Portrait but I just knew I had to take it.

I also LOVE supporting my fellow photographers and artists by purchasing their digital work and watercolor graphics for my portraits as well.

Stunning Senior Garden & Beach Session

We had so much fun on the beach and in the gardens for this gorgeous girl’s Senior Session.  My favorite part was that we snuck in a Mini Mother/Daughter Session.  Since I have been friends with this beautiful mom since kindergarten, these portraits were near and dear to my heart and I felt so blessed to provide both lovely ladies with a lifetime of memories to cherish.

By the Beach Senior Session

This Rustic Senior Session by the Beach was so much fun.  Weekapaug, RI is one of my favorite locations and since this sensational senior is from Westerly I just knew we had to do his portraits there.  This fun-loving guy was dressed for success and totally rocked his session.  Showing off his first classic project car at the beach topped off the session in style.

Stunning Senior Prom Portraits

Its Prom Season already!  I loved this Gorgeous Senior Prom here in Griswold, Connecticut.  This rustic tree farm location is one of my favorites.

Maternity Photography

Mommy & Me Maternity Session

I loved this Winter Wonderland Maternity and Toddler Session.  We were even able to snap a couple great photos with Gramma.  These lovely ladies were super great sports during this cold snowy session.  The floral princess crowns, lovely lanterns, and glittered storybook ended the day with a little enchanting magic.

Delightful Baby Girl Session

This Delightful Baby Girl was so sweet during her session but she sure was too active to stay asleep for long.  I love that I was able to capture her gorgeous bright eyes and I adore her Mama Love Photos too!  As an added bonus it was so warm we were able to head outside for some rustic fall portraits.

Rustic Fall Maternity Session

This session was very near and dear to my heart because whether I want to believe it or not I used to babysit this Mama to be!!  Yes I’m showing my age!  It was such a blessing to be a part of these special moments with this family.  It was also very encouraging to see Dad so enthusiastic about the session and having so much fun. Mom was super patient with all of my photographic antics, especially when the session went dark, really really dark, nighttime dark, and we found ourselves in the woods, in the rain, in the dark!  I had forgotten about Daylight Savings Time!  It certainly pushed my artistic visions to the max and forced me to see past my mistake and continue creating great portraits.  I know these two will make great parents and I can’t wait to meet baby girl.
