Lila | Newport, RI | Lifestyle Photographer

Fun Fact:  During the week I nanny part time.  Long before I was a photographer, I was a certified preschool teacher.  I've always loved working with kids!  When I left my job as a preschool teacher and pursued my photography career, I didn't realize how much I'd miss working with kids.  Yes, I am IN LOVE with my career and I get to meet kids of all ages, but there is something about teaching kids that just makes my heart happy.  

So, I went searching for something part time to not only keep me happy, but to also help me in my slower months.  I found this amazing, wonderful family whom I've come to love and adore over the past 13 months or so.  Lila was just 3 months old when I started with her, and now she's 16 months, and is walking and talking!  It's been so much fun watching her grow, and helping with what I can along the way.  

For Mother's Day, I decided to take some updated photos of Lila for her mom.  It was a challenge photographing someone who knows me so well, but it was also SO much fun!  I definitely need to bring my camera over more often.  I may be biased, but I think Lila is just the cutest!  I wanted to share some of the photos I took here today because they are just too cute not to share!
