Xavier’s 1 month session (+family) | Warwick, Rhode Island

We headed down to Rhode Island for a portrait session on Sunday.  Drew’s parents live in Fall River, MA (which is only a 20 minutes from Providence).  We went to their house first and Drew & Prue hung out with the family while I headed to Warwick RI to meet the newest member of my family (my cousin Michael is Xavier’s Dad).  I was excited to welcome this little nugget to the world and to have the chance to photograph him.  I also took some time to shoot Xavier’s big sister Trinity and some with the entire family.  Trinity was a blast and hammed it up for me, she is a little super model.  Trinity and I played in her room a bit and then spent some time outside, until it started spitting on us a bit.  Xavier was a perfect little model, he didn’t sleep, which is to be expected with a one month old.  If you want sleepy time newborn photos it’s best to do it during the first 2 weeks.  While he didn’t sleep he didn’t really cry and most of the time looked at the camera or towards the window.  At 1 month old he already knows how to find the light! :)

Christina & Michael thanks for letting me capture your adorable little family!



Cole 6 months | An adorable little guy

Just last week went to visit my good friends at their home to shoot Cole’s 6 month session.  I can’t believe this little nugget is getting so big!  We had lots of fun and he did a great job sitting up for us.  I think shooting 6 month olds is a new fave of mine.  You don’t have to stress about them sleeping (like with newborn sessions) and they aren’t at the point where they are walking, so you don’t have to chase them around!

We had fun changing his outfit!  I love the little boys in jeans and shirtless, it is timeless and super cute to show off all the rolls!

Sometimes you need to hangout with your bears!  I ransacked Prue’s collection of bears and brought them up.  Some of you will recognize Schlepp (this was a fun idea, but he kept sliding down so it was something we only shot a few images of)

I love his eyes in this image!  Such a sweet look from a sweet little boy :)

I usually keep shooting when babies start crying, it’s good to document all the emotions they have.  (obviously if they are crying because they are nervous because they don’t know me, that is a different story).  I think Cole was mad that he was on his stomach, he doesn’t really like tummy time.

Can you even handle the cuteness of the hat! He loves the driving toy on the right, at one point I was shooting while also holding this toy in my arm so I could make noises to get his attention!  I was pretty proud of my multi-tasking abilities!

A little fun time with mom!

Watching a little Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!

Thanks for being a great model Coley!
