Archive for '2 years old'
I have had the pleasure of photographing baby D since she was born. Her parents were some of my first newborn clients. I traveled out to their home in Boston and baby D slept like a dream on my little bean bag set up by their sliding glass door. Later I traveled out to celebrate D’s first birthday with a fabulous cake smash on Bunker Hill. I was so excited when I heard soon after that session they were expecting again! One of the best parts of my job is sharing in the good news of families as they grow. Last week D and her family traveled to my studio for back-to-back sessions. The first was for D’s second birthday and the second was a newborn session for D’s new little brother. D is up first, so here is her sneak peek!
I’ve had the pleasure of photographing these two gorgeous sisters since C was one year old. Mom soon had an announcement for us. S was on the way! These two couldn’t be more opposite. C does not like having her picture taken one bit. S would sit and smile at the camera all day long. My goal going into this session was just to get a single image of both girls smiling at the camera! I’m happy to report that we got it. In fact, I think C might just be warming up to me and my camera because I captured more images of her smiling than ever!
Here they are then:
L’s beauty just takes your breath away. Like all two-year-olds, she much preferred to run around the studio, play dress up, and act silly rather than be placed amidst a bunch of props and told to smile. One thing I’ve learned from my own two year old is that when you can’t beat em’, you must join em’. And joining them is truly more fun anyways! So we ran around, broke out the tea cups, wings, and magic wands and had fun being kids. I think we captured L’s beauty and whit perfectly. Enjoy your preview!
Inspired by Heidi’s well deserved tropical vacation, we’ve put together a Spring what-to-wear guide for girls that coordinate nicely with some of the new props here at the studio. For this what-to-wear we used pieces from the adorable crewcuts collection by j.Crew. Check out our other what-to-wear guides here and here.
Hi folks, Christina here. Just thought I would share my fashion picks for the spring. Here in Rhode Island we are getting hit with two storm systems back to back! We love the snow but it’s a bit overwhelming at this point! We’re trying to think warm thoughts at the studio which means we already have spring sessions on our mind. We’ve already got a handful of ideas for spring sets and couldn’t help but put together some inspiration for our clients who already have a spring session booked. This is just a start with outfits from Old Navy. More to come soon!
Each New Year, among a long list of resolutions, I resolve to take more pictures of my own family. Sunday provided me with the perfect opportunity to make good on that.
I was standing at my kitchen window pouring coffee when the sun began to rise. As the light grew, I noticed our wintery neighborhood was draped in a blanket of fog. The wheels in my mind began spinning. I had been waiting for this for a long time. A picture in my head I couldn’t quite get rid of, but the weather had to be just right for it all to work. I didn’t have the perfect outfit ready (what I had gotten for this idea last year had been long since outgrown), but I rummaged through G’s closet and found something that would suffice. I grabbed my coffee cup and hopped into the car heading for the studio, leaving Giuliana and Shaun behind watching Tinkerbell. I called my mom on the way.
“Hi mom.” – me
“Hello” – her
“What are you doing this morning?” – me
“You want to come take pictures with the fog in my yard?” – her
How did she guess?? My family must now be accustomed to my “creative” insanity. I loaded up the car with things to keep Giuliana entertained. She still doesn’t like mommy’s face obscured by the camera… or doing what she’s told for that matter. I need to be creative if I’m going to capture anything besides pouting. G’s latest interest is monsters, so I rushed around grabbing everything I could think of that would be essential for a monster hunt in the woods. Oh! And I almost forgot a lantern to catch the snow fairies. We had to beat the rain and melting snow!
Shaun, who still marvels at my spontaneous inspiration, just went with the flow. He agreed to head out into the snow with us and even helped to lug the furniture. If he thinks I’m crazy, he at least keeps it to himself! Out in the snowy woods Giuliana had fun hunting for monsters as I clicked away. It was much warmer than average so we lasted out there for a while. When it is warm enough, I adore shooting in the snow. It acts as the perfect reflector and it seems to soften the world. The rising fog was just as I envisioned it. When G finally tired of our game, I had some trusty fruit snacks to get those last few shots. We then headed inside to warm up and dry off in Yia Yia’s kitchen. Just another Sunday morning.
Happy 2011 to you and your family! I hope you are finding success in keeping your resolutions as well!
A and M visited the studio just before Christmas and after meeting them, I know Santa must have been good to them both. They were both so sweet and fun capture on camera. Their beautiful blue eyes stole every scene. Enjoy your sneak preview F family!
The “Sweetest Baby” contest winner definitely deserves his title! Not only is he completely adorable, he truly was so sweet to photograph. He was one of the best behaved two-year-olds I’ve ever photographed! He kept asking his mom if it was okay to touch the cake. He certainly stole my heart and I’m sure he’ll steal yours too!
