Jordan | Bombshell Boudoir

This bombshell has supported her husband through 4 deployments and she wanted to give him something special when he returned home after seven long months in Afghanistan.  Meet Jordan: bringing West Coast glam to Rhode Island wherever she goes.  Jordan is my favorite photoshoot and Starbucks buddy.  She is always on par with my ideas and ready to get in front of the camera to show it off.  I really admire her for sticking it out in RI while her husband is away and her family and friends are on the opposite side of the country.  This summers session was Baking Boudoir.... no cupcakes were actually made. Bon Appetite!

Rachel | Newport Maternity Session

My beautiful sister came to visit me in June so naturally we had to take some photos do document her fifth pregnancy.  Yes, that is right, FIFTH pregnancy.  After blessing our family with four handsome boys she is finally getting a baby girl.  Cameron, Kaden, Brennan and Grayson are the lights of my life and I cannot wait to go home in September to see the birth of my new niece. I admire my sister so much for being so young and able to work as a Respiratory Therapist and take care of 4 boys, a husband and two dogs.  I would need about 5 naps a day if I were her! I am so blessed to have her as an older sister and I am so happy that in age we have grown so close. I value the advice she gives me so much and I cannot wait to have children of my own to add to the bunch....well I can wait but ya know. Miss you and I love you Rachel! _MG_9182_MG_9136_MG_9140_MG_9174 _MG_9153 _MG_9157-Edit _MG_9161_MG_9173

Nathan | Thomas Rudd

Last week I once again had the pleasure of photographing my favorite Elvis look alike in a bow tie made by my new favorite store in Newport, Thomas Rudd. You'll get the full story on them after I do a much anticipated photoshoot with them in the next couple of weeks. Tom and his wife Michelle have an extremely well designed storefront in Bowens Wharf full of classic american treasures with a nautical twist for the true American Gentleman. Michelle makes the bow ties and they can do everything custom including: monograming, custom cigar boxes, flasks, the coolest bottle openers ever, vintage prints, throw blankets, coasters, sunglasses and more. They are basically a goldmine if you are looking for gifts for your man, your dad, your groomsmen or any other men in your life. They do have some girly stuff too though!  Their dog Peter hanging out in the front is just the icing on the cake too. It is an extremely handsome store that truly matches their products. I'm so pumped to have the opportunity to photograph for them.

With these photos I will leave you my favorite quote about what in my opinion is a true american gentleman:

"The real power of a man is in the size of the smile of the woman sitting next to him."

Nina | Second Beach

I photographed Nina at the same time as my previous post, Kara.  She is a foreign exchange student living in Rhode Island from Germany.  When I first met her I knew I had to photograph her. When you see the shade of blue her eyes are, you will understand.  I was so impressed with how mature, calm and collected she is.  Nina returns to her home in Germany soon but I know the impact she has made on her friends here is one not to be forgotten. On a side note, I read this quote in an old issue of Real Simple magazine the other day and water to share:

"There seems to be a kind of order in the universe, in the movement of the stars and the turning of the Earth and the changing of the seasons, and even in the cycle of human life.  But human life itself is almost pure chaos." Katherine Anne Porter - Paris Review 1963

Kara | Second Beach

I recently photographed this bright young girl on Second Beach in Middletown, Rhode Island.  She was a fantastic model and I was itching to do some personal work after the start of wedding season.  Her wisdom exceeds her age and her beauty radiates through her eyes and smile.  Kara is wearing Free People and make-up by Urban Decay.
