The first time I met Audriana, I thought she was the absolute sweetest little girl. Gorgeous and tiny...a sweet little voice. I would soon realize, there is more to this little girl then sugar...she has some spice too! I don't think Audriana's parents will have to worry much about her when she gets older because this girl is MIGHTY and STRONG. At a summertime cookout, Audriana and my son Mason slowly warmed up to each other and played side by side. They may be less then a month apart, but what Mason lacked in communication skills compared to Audri, he made up for is SIZE! Soon, they both had their hearts set on the same power wheel. Audriana was in it, then Mason was in it...slowly building up tension. Before we knew it, Audriana was yanking Mason out by his shirt and then Mason was climbing the hood trying to get back at her. Never in my life was I so scared but also so amused!
After that day, I was sure these two would never be friends, but low and behold, they get so excited to see one another! These tough cookies certainly impressed one another and I think they will have each other's backs for a longtime.
Happy Birthday, Audriana! Each year you grow, you are closer to becoming an amazing young lady!
It is always a pleasure to photograph our good friends, Olivia and Charlotte! We had quite the rainy week but got some sun before Olivia was off on vacation with her dad! We headed over to Seekonk to get a nice mini session at the meadows, amongst the flowers.
Here is Olivia, the soon-to-be third grader! She looks so grown up. I think that happens to third graders ...
Charlotte loved the freedom of the meadow and was quite content to run...and run! She wasn't interested in stopping to smell the flowers with all the space around her. That two year old is on the go (and thought I was crazy to make her do otherwise)!
Charlie loves having her picture taken, so I promised her a custom milestone session for her birthday...designed by her! She is so enthusiastic to model for my mini sessions...so imagine her excitement when she got to design her very own birthday portrait session! From the background color, banner, and outfit, Charlie picked it all. She even got to chose the theme of course.
It can be hard to sneak in the sessions of my kids that are just for fun, so I was glad Charlie kept on me about doing her birthday session. We had so much fun and I got to teach her a little bit more about what goes into planning a session (and editing!).
Happy sixth birthday, Charlie!

Maxine was full of smiles for her nine month milestone session! Her mom answered our model call to come show off some of the new studio milestone outfits and it was SUCH a pleasure to meet them both!
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.
