12 Years Ago

12 years has gone by since you were born and placed into my arms for the first time. I will never forget that feeling. You are my beautiful rainbow baby. This was a tough year for you, for us with the death of my father. You were so close with him and saw him often. You text each other silly faces and called him with such excitement every time you made student of the month. He looked forward to each and every one from you. This year you are finding your place and who you really are. There will be some tears and many fears but through that know we are here to love and support you with arms wide open. Happy Birthday Princess.

Girls & Pearls

It's such an exciting time to bring home a baby girl, especially to house full of boys. This mama was so happy that we were coming to her and could incorporate the boys and dad as well. Thank you to Andrea at Heart and Soul Photography in Warren RI for her assistance with the little ones. The boys were full of spunk and weren't a bit shy in expressing it :-) A new girl in the house. Things are gonna change; from army men and legos to tutus and pearls. Girls are simply giggles wrapped in sunshine and she was beaming.

I took the night to photograph some regulars as the children start there adventures into new schools, new grades and new friends. Enjoy :-)
