Morgan + Garrett’s Roger Williams Park Engagement Photos

Roger Williams Park in the spring just cannot be beat.  Pink and white blossoms everywhere, and Morgan, Garrett, and I totally took advantage of what was in bloom.  We started off in the Japanese Gardens, and then made our way around the park. This park is such a gem in Providence. It’s huge, and while it’s usually crowded, things were relatively calm the evening we were there (minus the two wedding parties and prom groups!).

I like to shoot a mixture of up close, intimate portraits, standard portraits, and wide shots encompassing the beautiful backgrounds. For these shots, I used two lenses: 35mm (for the wide shots and up close intimate portraits) and the 85mm (for the standard portraits).  It’s nice to have a mix so that not everything looks the same.

Enjoy the photos!

I call the next set of portrait poses the, “For Mom and Dad”. While I always like to have a mix of natural looking moments (which are most often the result of nervous giggles!), I always try to take a few posed, looking directly at the camera, as parents and grandparents always seem to love these.  It’s a good “staple” portrait!

A BIG Announcement!

Well, as you might be able to guess from the photo below….I’m expecting! Baby BOY (!!!) is due around the holidays.  I couldn’t be more thrilled! For so long, I have photographed so many families and babies, and it’s hard to believe that I will now have a little one of my own to photograph!


So what does this mean for my clients? It means that fall family portrait sessions are going to be VERY limited this year, as I need to allow myself time to edit all of the sessions and deliver them in time for the holidays (and before I give birth).  Because birth is unpredictable, I will be scheduling sessions up to November 9th, but not any later. I will be accepting 8 October sessions, and once October is fully booked, opening up 4 November sessions if the weather cooperates….but that’s it!  Because I will be scheduling fewer sessions for fall, session dates will only be held with an e-signed studio policies contract and a non-refundable paid session fee (all done online and via Paypal), and must be submitted within 24 hours of being sent.


Ready to book your fall family portrait session?!?! Well, if you’d like peak fall foliage, then I suggest scheduling your session between October 13th and October 28th, as these weeks have been predicted to have the best foliage! And it sure is pretty in photographs, isn’t it??

Engagement sessions are also gorgeous in the foliage, too!!

If you don’t have availability during the peak fall foliage weeks, what about an apple orchard? Apple orchards all look very “fall-ish” and can be photographed at any time in September-November.

Even the city has some nice spots with foliage!
