I had the pleasure of photographing a few family photos of this young Navy couple with their lovable dog, Winston (AKA Benji, Winnie, etc!). While the dog might be a little confused about his name, he is very much loved as you can tell by the photographs. The couple recently adopted Winnie and wanted to feature their new family member on this year’s Christmas card.
Before the shoot, Hailey asked me to apply her makeup and style her hair. We spent about an hour on both and then I cut and styled her husband’s hair. After doing the hair and makeup we went over their wardrobe options for the day. From my home, we headed over to Salve Regina University in Newport, RI. I chose Salve for the location because of its’ meticulous landscaping and beautiful wrought iron gates. There really is so much variety there. In fact, it is a really popular place to take wedding photos. We wandered around the grounds and found some open grass and trees featuring great leaks of sunlight. Winnie was such a hoot and found his way around the campus with much curiosity and desire to leave his mark. We snapped pictures for about 20 minutes and got a bunch of really different looks.
