Becky and Jeff were excited when they found out Becky was expecting. From the moment little Ryan was born, his parents loved him and were in awe as new parents. Over time, Ryan has developed quite the personality. He likes to rest his hands behind his head when he is tired, just like his Auntie. His daycare calls him Grandpa for this very reason. He is also very social. His newest skill is waving at every person he passes. As Ryan was approaching one year old, his parents suddenly knew all the clichés were true: A year goes by so fast.
In celebration of Ryan’s 1st birthday (and their first year as parents!), Becky scheduled a cake smash session with KM Photography. Having loved our work, Becky was happy to support her childhood friend’s business. Ryan had a good breakfast and was well rested; ready for his session! Like most one year olds, he didn’t sit still for long but we got great smiles from him during his traditional session. Then, during the cake smash, he sat and devoured the cake like an expert! His parents were nervous about whether he would cry too much or move too much, but said, “Kirsten was great with getting his attention and getting him to smile”.
In the end, the Weeks’ family had a wonderful session that captured Ryan the Lion's personality at one. They have digital files to share with loved ones and the opportunity to purchase archival, legacy art that can be passed down to Ryan and his own children. Creating art is important to KM Photography and creating art for old friends is even more special!
Older newborns can be a challenge to photograph. They are just starting to explore the world with their hands and feet, they like to stay alert for longer periods, and they aren't as easily manipulated while asleep. So, while an older newborn session may not flow the same as a baby between 3-10 days old, they provide variety to the traditional newborn session.
William came to KM Photography at 7 weeks old. He was very happy to lay on the floor and look around. His curious eyes would light up as mom played with him on the floor. We even got some nice smiles! He wasn't thrilled about leaving Mom and Dad's arms while asleep...he knows just where he wants to be...but we eventually got him in a deep enough sleep to not realize he had left their arms. Here are some of our favorites from William's session.
Welcome to the world, little guy!
Here is a little brightness on this very rainy summer day. A throw back to the spring at Capron Park Rose Garden in Attleboro, MA.....
Heather and Hayden came to me for a session in May. I waited until now to post because it was a surprise for Hayden's dad for Father's Day! Hayden was a little unsure about smiling for pictures. He wanted to be silly. So once we laughed and played a bit, he warmed right up and we got some wonderful pictures for his dad.
So often, parent's schedule portraits for their children. I LOVE when the parents get in front of the camera as well. When Hayden is grown, he will have these special memories to be able to show his own family...and maybe he will get his own surprise one day!
It's that special time of year. Spring means First Communion and Confirmation. I love seeing the children all dressed up; feeling special and proud.
Nick is such a sweet and polite young man. Not all boys like getting dressed in suits to have their pictures taken, but he was a champ! I had so much fun taking his portraits.
I'll never forget how my oldest daughter looked over my shoulder at the computer screen, while I was retouching in Photoshop, and exclaimed, "Look at handsome Nick! He looks so grown up!" ..She is a big sap like her mom.
In just a few years, he will be off to middle school and then high school, and will look back on these pictures and remember what it felt like to go through his first communion. (And his mom will be surprised at how young he looks!)
I am a photographer in Plainville, MA serving southeastern Massachusetts, RI, and southern NH. I have a deep passion for capturing memories. Each photograph freezes a moment in time so that it may never be forgotten. I hope to create legacies that tell stories for generations.
