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!

Rhode Island Lifestyle Newborn Photography

rinewbornphotographer_096This beautiful newborn just had her first birthday! Happy Birthday, Ella!  Unfortunately, I won’t get to photograph her one year photos, because her family has moved to Australia (!!!). So jealous as I follow their beautiful beach photos Down Under while we suffer through the winter of all winters.

The first picture is one of my all time favorites…I just love how her mom is kissing her little fingers. These are the natural moments that I love to capture….and one of the reasons my newborn and baby business has been completely reconstructed. Last year, I sold ALL of my newborn props, and took a hiatus from photographing newborns. I wasn’t comfortable putting babies in baskets, sessions were stressful trying to get that beautiful sleeping baby pose, and I have to admit, I just felt mean.  Let’s face it, a baby has just endured birth, and now a few days later, here I am cramming them into a bowl naked! I just wanted to whisper, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry!” over and over again to these sweet newborns.  That’s when I knew that the ever so popular baby in a prop just wasn’t going to work for me and my studio. So, I took a break to figure things out.  I realized I was just really drawn to natural moments, and really drawn to timeless black and white imagery.  That’s not to say that I don’t think it’s cute when babies are posed so beautifully and it’s not to say that I don’t like the photos…I just know what it takes to get that shot, and I can’t bring myself to do it any longer.

So, what does this mean for newborn and baby portraiture at Caitlin Maloney Photography?  Well, everything will be natural. This means newborns will be photographed in their own homes, wearing clothes for the majority of the session, and safely cradled in their parents’ arms or on their beds.  Photo sessions will not be stressful.  Babies that aren’t sitting up will also be photographed in their homes, and babies that can sit up and walk will be photographed outside, weather permitting. I understand that many (dare I say most?) families want the “cute baby in the prop” photos, and that’s fine! There are some amazing photographers who do those photos, and do them well. They probably don’t find them stressful, and enjoy them….I am not one of them. So, if you are interested in natural newborn and baby portraiture, I am here….and if you prefer the baby in the prop style, that’s perfectly okay, I’m just not the best choice for a photographer for you and your family :) .
