Welcome Baby Thomas!: Rhode Island Baby Photographer

I know it sounds corny, but lately, I feel like the luckiest person in the world. My photography business makes it possible for me to meet amazing people I would otherwise never have the opportunity to meet. They invite me into their lives for their weddings, when they are expecting babies, and then into their homes so I can photograph their infants and new families! It really means so much to me to be given that honor. That my creative vision is the one they choose to capture and document all these once in a lifetime moments feels like an amazing gift.

So you can understand how excited I was when one of my wedding couples from NYE 2011 – Jessica & Paul – invited me to their beautiful home in Boston to photograph their 18 week old son, Thomas. He is one of the most beautiful children I have ever met or photographed. So sweet and so well loved. And their apartment has such great character and light, it made our session even better. So, without further ado, I would like to introduce you to baby Thomas and his mom and dad.

Tummy Time!

Not only do I love everything about this photo – the colors, the way Jessica is looking at Paul, their sweet little Thomas asleep in his mommy’s arms, the composition and light – I also really wish I had an image like this of my husband and I with our son when he was a baby. I also now want a room with orange walls!

Congratulations Paul & Jessica! I’m so happy for you and can’t wait to see you all again in the future. Many blessings.

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.
