At the beginning of this past week, I met Tracey, Wayne and their lil’ man, Austin at Ledgemont Country Club in Seekonk, MA for their engagement session.  This will be their reception venue for their wedding in July 2011.  This country club is beautiful and I can only imagine what the wedding day will look like here! 

Anytime my bridal couples have children, I love to incorporate them into the engagement session.  It’s just another GREAT opportunity to have a laid-back family portrait done before the big day.  Tracey & Wayne (and your parents), thank you for having the patience to bring him along.  He was soooo much fun to have there, even if we all got a great workout chasing after him!  I hope he had as much fun as we did! 🙂

I simply cannot WAIT for Tracey & Wayne’s wedding this coming year!  I have so many fun ideas that I know we’re all going to have a BLAST that day!  Here are a few of my favorites from the session.  Enjoy!!

“A little cup of friendship
With a bag of tea
When you drink this
Think of love from me.”

I had SUCH a blast yesterday!  After having to reschedule this session a few times, due to the weather, we FINALLY beat Mother Nature! lol  It was a beautiful, sunny day in the morning and then in the afternoon, it got cloudy and grey (but we photogs LOVE that weather).  All I kept praying was that we could beat the rain. 

A local apple orchard set the scene for this WONDERFUL and FUN tea party session!  I couldn’t have asked for a better location.  I don’t know who had more fun, myself or the girls! 🙂  Nothing is better for little girls than to be able to play dress up and have a tea party with cookies and lemonade to share with a friend.

Here are a few of my favorites:

It’s BABY FEVER!  I swear, I’ve photographed more maternity sessions this past month than I have all year long and I am loving it!  This beautiful Momma-to-be is due on Oct 16th and what they are having…is a surprise!  I cannot wait to find out if they have a boy or girl!  When I met Melissa and Cliff, it was great to hear that she wanted to be a little more artistic as she has a great interest of photography and was just soaking it all in (Melissa, I was serious when I said I’d be happy to help you learn your DSLR camera). 😉

It’s a small world, as we found out that one of Justin’s classmates from last year (now they are in different class but still same grade, obviously), is the nephew of Melissa.  We adore her nephew and Justin speaks very highly of him! 🙂

Melissa & Cliff were great sports, letting me try a few new ideas, lighting techniques, having them up & down on the floor, etc etc.  So THANK YOU for putting up with my craziness. 🙂  Here are a few of my favorites from your session.  Enjoy!

 

On Sunday, I had the pleasure of meeting Erin, David and Michelle.  Erin attended my son’s Auction Gala event back in May, where she placed a bid and won a family portrait from me.  So needless to say, when she contacted me to schedule the session, I was very excited to meet her!  Even moreso, when I heard that her step-daughter, Michelle, was visiting from Germany. 

Michelle was the sweetest girl, so polite and quiet but you could definitely tell there was a cute, playful side to her.  And how adorable is her dress?!  Love it! 

Erin, it was great to finally meet you and your beautiful family!  Here is a quick peek at a couple of my favorites from the session.   Enjoy!

Last night, we had one of our nieces and nephews over so I thought it would be fun to take some photos of them.  Fun for me, some updated photos for their mom (hubby’s sister) and an excuse for Alyssa to model (and torture for Brandon, as boys their age usually hate having their photos taken. HAHA).  I bribed them with a sleepover though, so they agreed very quickly! 😉

Alyssa is your typical 10 yr old girl who loves to do anything girly.  Shop, dress up, figure skate, gymnastics, you name it!  Brandon is a musician…mostly a drummer but also plays the guitar.  He also is one of the youngest to be accepted into the Rhode Island Phil Harmonic (as he’s been a member of that for a few years now).  He’s amazing at the drums. 

Here are a few of my faves (and of course, I threw in one photo of my boys too):

And my lil’ monkeys:

Last year, I started the tradition of posting my top favorite client images of the year. I think it’s fun to reminisce and also, to see how my photography grows with each passing year.

I was able to narrow it down to 10 images last year but this year…it was a LOT tougher. So I narrowed it down to my top 20. I knew this year was SUPER busy but after going thru all of my sessions and weddings, I realized HOW busy it was. And for that…I truly am thankful to have such fantastic clients, friends and to share what I love to do as a profession.

I really had a hard time even narrowing it down to 20 but I tried to remember each time I was editing each session or wedding when that 1 or 2 images really jumped out at me; and that is how I chose. So even if you aren’t on this list, please know that I cherish each and every one of you, your family and the moments I captured for you to always remember. 🙂

Here are my top 20 images of 2009:

I photographed a session yesterday for a friend of mine. Her sons, Lucas and Liam are just adorable and we had so much fun….even if Liam didn’t smile much (I think he knew what we were trying to do, the lil’ bugger! HAHA). But I hope they had as much fun as I did….here are a bunch of my faves from the session:

Holiday Craft Fair in Smithfield, RI this Saturday! Come on by as there will be a TON of businesses selling their services and products! The holidays are right around the corner. Don’t wait until last minute! 🙂

I had the pleasure to meet Angela and Aaron’s twins, Adrianna & Austin. I’ve known Angela for quite some time…as we went to high school together. I haven’t seen her in 12 yrs so it was definitely nice to catch up a bit. 🙂

The lil’ ones definitely kept us busy! This was my first twin session and at 6 wks old, I thought maybe I’d get a few of them sleeping because I had sooooo many ideas in my mind that I wanted to do. But they had other plans for me. 😉 So although I didn’t get to try the ideas I wanted, I think we got some great ones! It was awesome to meet and hold them…man, I love that infant stage.

Angela & Aaron, thanks for putting up with me and not minding too much for getting peed on. 😉 It was worth it, I think! 😀 Here are few of my favorites from their session:

I had envisioned them on their bellies on the lil’ couch and then Adrianna laying half on Austin.  Yeah, that wasn’t happening. 😛  HAHAHA  Still thought this was cute!

The other day, I had the priviledge to photograph some products by Ginny Marsella, owner of Ginny’s Tarts & Treats. I’ve known Ginny for a couple of years now, as she is also a PHENOMENAL massage therapist and I’d highly recommend her to anyone who needs one! 😉

I also had the YUMMY experience to sample many of her creations and they are FABULOUS! To be honest, I am not one for white chocolate, but one of my favorites is the white chocolate covered potato chips. They are awesome!! So you see, even if you prefer one chocolate over the other, you have GOT to try both. Ginny’s Candied Apples are to DIE for and there are so many options for those.

I could go on and on about her products but I would definitely recommend contacting Ginny if you ever need a wonderful gift with a personal touch. Think Holidays, Weddings, Showers, Birthdays, Birthday Favors, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, etc etc. The possibilities are endless! Her website is in the works so I will add that once it’s up and running. So for now, if you’d like to contact Ginny, you’re more than welcome to call her at 401-573-2910.

Here are a few of my faves from the product session:
