Sweet Little Ella’s Newborn Session: Rhode Island Baby Photographer

In the early years of my photography business I was hired by Jennifer (Green) Fagan to photograph her wedding to (her now husband) Dan. It was a beautiful wedding and I loved my time getting to know the two of them and their families. Since then, they have purchased a home, had two beautiful children and, lucky me, I have had the opportunity to photograph them. Just six weeks ago, Jen’s brother and sister in law, Jonathan & Karen, had their first child. Once again, I was given the honor of capturing the first formal portraits of a child in their family and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Ella was such a sweet little munchkin, and her mom had so many great outfits and accessories for her. The entire session was a joy. I can’t wait to see these cousins grow up!

Sweet little Ella finally gave up the battle and fell asleep. Is there anything more precious than a baby sleeping?

Hi there


About Susan

My wedding and portrait photography business is located in the heart of South County, Rhode Island close to URI and the scenic, south coast beaches. I grew up here and feel so lucky to be able to work and create in such a beautiful location! My approach to photography is much like my approach to life: creative, relaxed, natural and fun. I would describe my style as a blend of candid & photojournalistic with traditional & artistic images. I love taking the time to create some beautiful, romantic portraits of my brides & grooms, but also the spontaneous moments throught the wedding day. 

I consider my website and blog a place where I can visually journal about the amazing people and places I get to photograph. Not only do I consider myself exceptionally lucky to be making a living taking photographs for people at important moments in their lives, but I also get to meet an amazing cross section of people I might not otherwise get to know. In the ten years I have been in business, I have had the chance to photograph couples riding high on the excitement of their recent engagement, on their wedding day, parents-to-be waiting to meet their new child, newborn babies, children marking milestone birthdays and families who want to remember a certain time in their lives by capturing it in a photographic portrait.  

In more recent years, I have had the opportunity to photograph the weddings of younger siblings and friends of previous wedding clients, and the maternity, newborn and family portraits of couples whose weddings I photographed in years past. It feels amazing to know my creative vision of these occasions is a part of their lives and their family history and I am grateful for each and every one of them. When I say I love what I do, it is from a genuine place. I can't imagine doing anything else and feeling as creativly satisfied and pleased to make my clients happy.  

I studied photography at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) for undergraduate school and received a Master of Fine Arts degree from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
