Correia Maternity | Newport RI

DSC_9868Majority of my maternity sessions take place on location outdoors or in studio, but obviously in New England the weather isn’t always predictable unfortunately. So with this crazy weather and the unpredictability of babies, we opted for a new location. All I can say is WOW was it amazing! Stepped out of my comfort zone and can I just say I am so glad I did this family rocked this session as they always do!

So firstly can you say FLAWLESS! The dress, hair, makeup, location….everything was absolutely perfect for this session. Caroline is absolutely stunning and I was very sad to hear that this will be her last pregnancy, still keeping my fingers crossed that maybe she’ll change her mind because her and her high school sweetheart make the most beautiful babies ever!

I have been photographing this family since Little Miss Adeline made her grand debut! I love watching this family grow, it is hands down the best part about doing what I do! I have known Caroline since we were kids and having the opportunity to photograph her  family is amazing! I am so happy for the three of you and cannot wait to meet this handsome, yet stubborn little guy! (Note: Mama is now 4 days over due) Fingers crossed that Mr. Levi doesn’t make his very uncomfortable mama wait much longer!

Please say hello to Hunter! This sweet little boy was born with Tetralogy of Fallot-Pulmonary Atresia and as you can see he is quite the little fighter. I was honored to have the opportunity to photograph this handsome little guy.

On January 23rd Hunter underwent open heart surgery to repair his VSD and lets just say this little boy rocked his scar in honor or CHD Awareness week!

His dad who is a Marine Vetran and his mother who is one of the sweetest people I have ever met are such rockstars and I admire them! Hunter is such a sweet, spunky little guy and I look forward to watching him grow and bring awareness and hope to every child and family out there who is born with CHD.

CHD effects over 44K children and families each year! Please consider genetic prenatal and newborn testing!

Also please consider making a donation to this amazing little family at GO FUND ME HUNTER’S HEART and following them over on their Facebook page HUNTERS HEART FB for updates on upcoming surgeries and to watch this little fighter grow!

The Cruz Family |Maternity | New Bedford, MA

There is nothing I love more than having the ability to watch families grow together. This is one of the first families I have had the privilege of photographing since I relocated from Virginia. It all started with a lemonade stand first birthday cake smash!

So when they contacted me to document their second pregnancy I was ecstatic! The beach was gorgeous and that sky though! Can you even stand how gorgeous Jess is! Like seriously a flawless pregnant mama!

And although this post is a little bit on the late side thats okay because I’m super excited that in a few short weeks I get to photograph this amazing family of four soon to be five! Yep you read correctly! Cruz Party of 5 coming in May 2018!

Mr M | Newborn | Lakeville, MA

Newborns have my heart and sole. There is no better therapy then snuggling up with a brand new baby! Fun fact: When I first started photography back in 2011, Newborns were far from my thing. At the time I followed so many amazingly talented newborn photographers and didn’t truly realize how much patiences and skills photographing a newborn really takes. Its not simply placing a baby on a bean bag or in a basket and keeping your fingers cross that they stay asleep. A lot more goes into it. Not only do you have to be skilled with the best way to handle, pose and capture newborns you also have some serious patiences. Compared to popular belief, sometimes babies just will not fall asleep, no matter how much you shush, mom feeds or how warm it is, baby just won’t sleep. When I did my first newborn I remember thinking “I’ve got this, I have a newborn and my newborn sleeps like an angel” Yeah! crazy when your not moving him around and he’s not exposed to the elements with that cute little naked tush in the air! haha

Long story short I gave up on newborns for awhile! (I will have to make a post one day of  some newborn pictures from before and after, they are scary! lol) Not to discourage anyone from wanting to get into newborn photography but do yourself a huge favor! Take some classes, do your research online, go to a workshop, really study on newborn safety I can’t say this enough! Safety! Safety! Safety! It’s so insanely important!  So now that I went on a huge tangent.

I want to take this time to introduce my super insanely handsome nephews. This blog post may be a tad bit on the delayed side, considering we just did Marshal’s one year pictures a few months ago! hah. I guess better late then never! lol

These two little cuties are my best friend Samm’s boys! Can you even stand the chunky rolls! His brother Ronin was the same way! 10 lbs of pure chunky sweet baby boy! I think we have some future football players on our hands!

Correia Family | Family Photos | Lakeville, MA

One thing I love most about being a photographer is having the opportunity to watch families grow.  I have known this couple since high school, before they were even a couple! When Caroline contacted me asking me to photograph her sweet baby girl back in 2016 I was more than honored! Now take a look at that perfect baby bump she’s rocking this december! I was so excited to find out that this time they are expecting a little boy! How exciting!

Little Miss Adeline is a spunky full of life princess with a whole lot of personality and I cannot wait to meet her handsome little brother in a few months!

PS. Doesn’t she have the most beautiful hair! Fun fact: She is an amazing hair stylist and the only person I will let touch my hair! 🙂

Once Upon A Child | Preschool Photos | Lakeville, MA

Last week I got to spend the entire morning with 10 of the cutest tiny humans around. I was excited when Jenn the owner of Once Upon a Child in Lakeville, MA contacted me to do their yearly school photos! If you are in the area and looking for childcare I highly suggest Once Upon a Child, not only is Jenn amazing at what she does but the overall environment is great! They are an in home childcare so not your typical daycare center! Check them out you won’t be disappointed!

Ronin| Six Months Old| Child Photographer| Stafford Photographer| Babies First Year

So this little guy probably looks very familiar to some of you and its because it just happens to be my handsome Godson! I was at the hospital when he was born and cried like a baby when I realized my best friend was expecting him. I love him just as much as I love my own children and I was so honored when his mom asked me to be his godmother! I am so excited to watch him grow and learn and be able to photograph every milestone along the way! Ronin you don’t worry one bit Titi will be taking yearly photos of you until you get married lol! I love you sweet boy!
