Canterbury Portrait Photographer
These two are among the very best men and woman who give their lives to those who are in need without hesitation. I was so honored to have the opportunity to photograph Kaci and Larry’s engagement session at the local fire station they both volunteer their time at together. We had so much fun running around the fire station and then we were so lucky that Kaci’s relative grows grass. Yup you read that correct he grows grass so we got to use the really pretty fresh lawn to finish there session. The colors of the gorgeous fall tress where to die for and mixed with the dark green grass I was in heaven. We laughed and played games and Larry even gave Kaci a piggy back ride to end the night. I am so excited to photograph this sweet couples August wedding this year. I can’t believe its right around the corner already.
Every family needs to capture the little moments and milestone of their babies as they grow so fast right before our very eyes. I can’t believe this little man is almost a year old already. I still remember all the trials his mom and dad went through and the many trips to the hospital with hopes he was going to stay in place a little longer. Lets face it this guy is growing so fast and doesn’t stop for a second now that he’s crawling and almost walking. I feel like it was just yesterday I was taking his newborn portraits. Slow down Wesley slow down. This little man stole my heart from day one and I love having the pleasure of seeing him every few months for his milestone sessions. I can’t wait for his 1 year cakes smash session coming up soon. Hint you might want to check back in next month to see what cuteness his mom and I come up with. We have some really adorable ideas tossing around in our heads for this one. Until then share some love with this sweet little man and his mom that I have the pleasure of calling my friend. I love getting to work with friends in the industry and seeing their families grow.
It’s always the little clients that steal my heart the most. I get all the feels when I get to snuggle a baby. I do miss when my kids were this small. When Sarah called for me to photograph her sweet baby girl I was so excited. This little one was such an angel the entire session. I am so happy to be offering studio newborn sessions at my Canterbury studio. If you or a friend want to capture this special time in your families life please give me a ring and lets get you scheduled.
When Alicia told me her idea about having me come out to her friends private farm for their engagement session I swear I felt a little giddy inside. It’s like being a school girl in love all over again when it comes to me and beautiful rustic farms. So my favorite part was that we got to have fun with their 3 gorgeous dogs and with a little bit of me jumping around looking like a fool behind the camera and the dogs being very patient we were able to get the shot Alicia rally wanted. When the day came it was raining all day but we decided to power through it and make the best of the day. I always carry my white umbrellas with me for wedding days and figured lets play in the rain why not. I have to say Alicia and Michael were good sports and went with it. I am so happy with the gorgeous images we ended up getting. A little rain does not stop people in LOVE…
I can’t wait to celebrate with them on their big day this coming St. Patricks’s day. I just know it’s going to be a blast.
One of my most favorite parts about living in Canterbury is the small town feel we have here. Josey found me on google and I was honored to come be a part of their special intimate backyard wedding. We had the best time walking their property along the creek after they said their I do’s. I think it was one of the least pressure wedding days I’ve ever had. I am starting to love intimate weddings. I should do more of them because just seeing these two so in love and not a care in the world about having the big wedding was so beautiful and inspiring. If I get married again its officially in my head I don’t want a big wedding I want something small and simple. All you need is LOVE and each other. Coz was the most gently man and you could see how much he cared for Josey. He was shaking with excitement to put that ring on her figure that he had a hard time getting it on. I can’t wait to get the call when they start having little ones… (Hint Hint I’m ready when you are to start having little ones!! LOL) I love babies just as much as weddings. Congratulations to this wonderful couple and here’s to many many happy years of marriage.
I maybe be biased but I am a little obsessed with this session at Devils Hopyard from this past spring. Erin and Lee nailed it from the perfect outfits to every pose. I mean they are our naturals in front of the camera. You will see more of that when I blog their wedding here soon. I was so excited when I saw her ring because this girl LOVES rings. It was simply beautiful and I must say Lee did a fabulous job picking it out. I just love how they met at the local bar that Erin worked. Lee would come in with his friends for nearly two years before he finally asked this beautiful lady out. I secretly think he had to work up the courage but she gladly excepted and now they get to spend the rest of their lives making memories. He took her out on the greater banks on vacation and during a moonlit stroll he wrapped his arms around her and whispered sweet words into her ear. Little did Erin know what was about to happen when she turned around and he got down on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Its like a fairy tail and I am so honored to be their photographer and I get to share in their love story.
This family is not only a fellow wedding industry vendor but a close friend. I couldn't have been more excited and honored when asked to photograph their maternity and newborn portraits for their first baby. I mean hello look at this gorgeous momma to be. Victoria was stunning in this blue dress made by a fellow photographer and close friend Tracy. When you bribe dad to take off his shirt and trust your vision magic happens within the camera. I think I let out the biggest yelp of excitement when I knew what I was getting in camera was perfect and told the love story of these two in just a few simple photos. The passion in the way Wesley holds his wife is just pure love.
Now for little man (That’s his nickname) he was a little stinker on the day of his photos but we managed to love on him and get some really cute photos for mom and dad to cherish for a lifetime. Always remembering how little he was. It’s hard to believe how big he’s gotten since this session but I just love watching him grow whenever I can. He’s feisty and a spit fire like his mom. I can see it now with the different looks and grins that he is such a mommas boy.
Come back to see more of this cute family do to hit the blog soon!
When I first met this sweet young couple I felt an instant connection with them. Their story about how they met in college when Rupak moved here all the way from Nepal. Who would think he would find the love of his life all the way across the world. The proposal was so sweet of course Kimberly being the intuitive woman she is kinda knew it was coming sooner rather than later. But the day approached and Rupak got Kimberly’s brother and sister-in-law in on the plan and they were supposed to be going to a corn maze together. Somehow, they ended up in Newport at the cliff walk instead and walked along for a while while. He stopped her, had a whole speech, got down on one knee… and well, you can figure out the rest. Such a magical memory for them to cherish. So when it came time for the engagement session we knew exactly where to have it. No place was going to be more perfect than the college grounds they met and fell in love on. We secretly wanted snow and guess what we got our wish and got snow the day before their planned session. My photographer heart was full of excitement and joy to share my afternoon with this sweet couple at WPI.
Come back and see their wedding coming to the blog soon!!
