The children of Bruce and Becki wanted to celebrate the 35th wedding anniversary of their parents and what a party! Family and friends old and new were able to witness the renewal of their vows at the lovely Valley Mansion. I'm sure it has been a long road, but the love they have for one another was quite evident. I think the most touching part was hearing all the anecdotal stories about the couple about their adventures. May they share many more years together! Happy Anniversary Bruce and Becki!

Sweet blue eyes!

Little Alyssa is a perfect model! She has these perfect big blue eyes and she smiles and laughs and tilts her head to the side like she just knows how to pose for the camera! Her Mom and Dad are such the loving parents, each taking such delight with all her little sounds and noises and movements. It was really sweet to see such a nice family and we made sure to get some special shots in honor of Mother's Day.

Just stopping by...

Moving is tough and stressful. Now imagine you're 2 and 4 years old. Now imagine you leave Rhode Island, stop to visit your baby cousin, Nolan, in Maryland, and your family decides to do a family portrait before you leave for your new home in Florida. That would be the story of little Breanna and Cameron this past weekend. This gorgeous family hasn't even attempted a family portrait in almost 2 years. We caught the kids between lunch and naptime for a quick session, but mostly concentrated on Mom and Dad. I hope you guys made it to Florida quickly and safely and I'm hopeful we got a few shots that might grace the walls in your new home! It was great visiting with you guys!

Sarah and James

I was given an opportunity to second shoot the wedding of Sarah and James alongside Heather Coburn and Susan Bergmark of Heather Coburn Photography. Those two girls taught me a lot in the setting of a very face paced wedding! You could really tell the newlyweds wanted to have a fun evening for their guests. We worked to capture some of the energy in that room. Of course, I wanted to share a few of my favorites from the night. Congrats again to the new Mr. and Mrs.!
