Bobotas Family | RI Family Photography

Once in awhile we come across a Blueflash Dynasty Family. I made that term up, but the Bobotas clan definitely falls into that category. We were a part of three Bobotas weddings. This family is great – they are genuine, loving, and just plain nice people. It’s been such an honor and a pleasure to be involved in some of their most important days. Getting to have another to do some family photography for them was a total bonus.

A Great Family Makes Great Family Photography

One of the couples lives in Japan, another in Alaska, so it’s not all too common when they get to be together. I arrived at the Cranston household and we began with traditional photos out front of everyone together and all the various sub combinations. Once we got that taken care of everyone headed into the backyard.

Coffee was brewed and they set up a game (the name of it totally escapes me) to play. I grabbed candid photos of everyone interacting and having a good time playing this game that they were so, errr, passionate about. Let’s just say it got competitive.

I think the photos of that part of the day really reflect who this family is, how much they love each other, and their love of having a good time with one another. This is family photography at its best; not because of what we did behind the camera, but because of who they are. A strong and loving family is one of the best things in life and they are lucky enough to have it.

Thank you once again, Bobotas family, for letting us in on a day in the life. Wishing you all the very best in everything you do! A lot of love from the Blueflash team.

The Meaning of Photos

What is the meaning of life… I mean photos?

 

Sometimes as photographers we can become so immersed in the process of taking literally tens of thousands of photographs in a year that we forget the bigger picture (see what I did there?). Fun fact – the Blueflash team took over 200,000 photographs last year alone.

 

The Bigger Picture

What is the bigger picture? What I mean is that these photographs serve as important markers and reminders in the lives of the people that are in them. As Tara, Ezra, Finn, and I wait for the newest member of our family to arrive (four days behind schedule as of today) I’ve been thinking about how your family permanently changes with the addition of each new member. It’s a great thing, but it’s change, and with any change after some time it becomes difficult to remember how things used to be. What if you want to be able to remember?

 

Why Photos Are Important

That’s where photos come in. Emily took some photos of our family a month or two ago. A pregnant Tara and our two kids got together for about 30 minutes (that’s all you can get out of little dudes) and because of that we have that stage of our lives and our family preserved for us to look back on. I can already see with two kids how hard it is to remember what it was like when we just had one. Don’t even bother trying to remember the time before kids! The only thing that transports me back to those different stages is photos and videos of those times.

 

Wedding photos fit into the mix just as nicely. Your wedding day becomes an anchor and representation of the beginning of your married life together. For all the years ahead you have these pictures that transport you back to a certain point in time in your lives. Along with that come thoughts, feelings, and memories that surrounded that timeframe. It’s pretty cool stuff. Sometimes it’s just hard to see that value in a simple photograph when you’re still in the moment. It’s one of the few things that is guaranteed to increase in value as time goes on.

 

Looking at these photos made me start thinking of these things so I thought I’d share it with you guys along with posting some highlights from our family session. Big thanks to Emily for being awesome. Enjoy!

 

-Matt

Plugovoy Family | Family Shoot

As life goes on, you realize that there really isn’t much that’s more important than family. With a family of my own now, I can see how fast the time flies. Whether you take family photos on a cell phone, have a friend take them with a good camera, or hire a professional (obviously the best option, but we’re biased), make an effort to document your growing family regularly throughout the years.

 

OK, enough said on that. Below you’ll find some highlights from a family session of some friends of ours, the Plugovoys. Pasha is a photographer himself but it’s really hard to take a selfie with your wife and two kids, hence where we come in. Enjoy some photos from their session!

Krystyna and Andrii | Providence Wedding

Lets take a look back to Krystyna and Andrii’s Providence wedding! Matt was able to join them for the day for photography!

 

The day started off full of love and laughter at the family home as the blissful bride and groom got ready alongside their beautiful baby boy. After everyone was ready, we all headed to St. Michael the Archangel Ukranian Catholic Church. This intimate ceremony was lovely, Krystyna and Andrii exchanged darling vows to one another and they sealed their love with a kiss! Now that our gorgeous bride and groom were officially Mr. & Mrs., we all took off to Providence for some pictures. We took full advantage of the beautiful landscape and architecture of the State House offers for a few shots, and after strolling the grounds for a bit, it was time for us to be on our way and leave the beaming newly weds and their family to celebrate this amazing day!

 

Thanks for inviting us along on your special day Krystyna and Andrii! Check out their wedding highlights below!

Nicole and Steve | Mount Hope Farm Wedding

Today we’re going to look back at an awesome Mount Hope Farm Wedding. Nicole and Steve is this great couple we met a while back when we did their engagement shoot in Providence. Now Matt and Emily joined them to do their photography, Dan covered cinema and Josh supplied the bluecube!

 

The morning started off beautifully at the Newport Harbor Hotel where the bridal party got ready for the big day! Moss Salon curled and twirled the ladies hair to perfection while Lynda Williams put the final touches on their makeup! Once hair and makeup was done, it was time to slip into her gorgeous gown from Reem Acra on 5th Avenue NY. After Nicole and the girls were ready it was time to go surprise Steve with a first look at Mount Hope Farm! As Steve turned around, he couldn’t hide the gleam in his eye as he looked upon his beautiful bride-to-be. Oh, and lets not forget their four legged friend, the “dog of honor”, who also made a little guest appearance at the first look!

 

Now that Nicole and Steve shared some nervous giggles it was time for the ceremony. Nicole walked down the aisle lined with mason jars of lovely flowers to the man of her dreams. A family friend officiated the wedding under a beautifully decorated teepee wrapped in sunflowers. The couple exchanged their intimate vows amongst closest friends and family, once their marriage was sealed with a kiss it was time to celebrate! This wedding was so much fun to be apart of, everyone was radiant with love and it was so evident what a joyous occasion this day meant not only for Nicole and Steve but also their guests. The reception was held inside a tent towards the back of Mount Hope Farms property and it was one of the most stunning receptions we’ve been apart of. From the table arrangements to the tree wrapped in lights to huge hanging woodland chandeliers, it was absolutely breathtaking! Christina at Studio 539 outdid herself with all the floral arrangements. Friends and family shared moving speeches that had us in tears of laughter one moment to happy tears the next because of their loving words towards the newly weds. Once everyone enjoyed a delicious meal from Russell Moirn followed by their scrumptious deserts, it was time to hit the dance for with the band Clockwork! Everyone danced the night away and ended the day with love laughter that filled the room.

 

This was one special day the Blueflash team is happy to have been apart of. Thanks for inviting us along for the ride Nicole and Steve! Enjoy the highlights from their wedding below!

Sandra and Matt | Newport Officer’s Club Wedding

Today we’re looking back at Sandra and Matt’s Newport Officer’s Club Wedding! Matt and Kim handled photography, Nate did cinema and Abby was there with the Bluecube. Oh, and lets not forget to mention their wedding planner, our very own Britt!

 

Sandra and her bridesmaids got ready at the Biltmore Hotel where they enjoyed some time in the spa getting their hair and makeup done. Once the final bobby pin was tucked away, Sandra stepped into her gorgeous wedding gown from Bridal Garden. Sandra was now missing one piece to complete her wedding glow, her shoes! Her dad showed up just in time to help her slip into her beautiful heels. Sandra’s brothers weren’t to far away either. They of course had to see their stunning sister before they sent her off to get married!

 

Now that everyone was ready it was time to head over to Our Lady of Rosary Church where Father Joseph Escobar lead a beautiful ceremony. Now that Matt and Sandra exchanged their vows it was time to head to the reception to celebrate! The beauty of hiring a wedding coordinator is that you can enjoy every part of your wedding day without worrying about little mishaps that might happen through out the day. So thats what Britt did, she made sure that by the time Sandra and Matt walked into the Newport Officers Club with their friends and family, it was perfect! Daisy Dig’ins brought beautiful floral arrangements that made the room look like it was out a fairytale!

 

One sweet thing from this wedding is that instead of giving traditional favors to the guests, there was a donation given to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Sandra and Matt made their entrance followed by some dancing thanks to Larry Tocci for providing a great sound for the night. After everyone had ate and enjoyed delicious cake from Confections, it was time to finish up the dancing and send the newly weds on their way!

 

Congrats Sandra and Matt! Check out the highlights from their wedding below!

Yolanda’s Family Session | RI Family Photography

Awhile back we joined Quest Montessori for an auction they had to try and raise some money for their school. Yolanda and her family were the winners of the RI family photography session Blueflash donated to the auction. This was a fun shoot to do, we did it right in their backyard so even the family dog joined us for a couple of pictures. Yolanda lives in Rhode Island but some of the other family  members came from different parts of the country to join us for the day! Glad we were able to join Quest Montessori and meet Yolanda and her family. Be sure to check out the highlights from their shoot below!

Ari, Matt, and Appleby | RI Maternity Photos

I (Matt here) grew up with Ari and we go way back to grade school days. As life progressed, Tara and I got married and Ari met up with her Matt and got married to him. We continued to stay friends and then we both started making mini-humans. It’s been a fun adventure and we’ve all become really good friends. Ari and Matt had Appleby, their first daughter, a little after we had Ezra. We then had Finn and they followed suit with their newest – Sage.

 

When they were pregnant with their second they asked if I’d do a maternity shoot for them. I warned them that it wasn’t my main gig and they were cool with that. Ari wanted to combine the shoot with some yoga on the beach. I thought that was a cool idea so I packed up my camera and lights and met them down at a private beach owned by RISD across from the RI Country Club in Barrington.

 

Appleby was awesome about the whole session and Matt served as a great assistant holding the lights for Ari’s solo yoga shots. It’s something a little different and I hope you like it. Take a look at the photos below. At the time of this blog post, Sage has been safely delivered to Matt and Ari and all is well.

Steph, Bryan, and Emmett | Family Photos

If you follow along on the blog you should most definitely know Steph by now. You probably know Bryan and Emmett as well. These are some good people and some good friends of ours. Steph is the talent behind Stephanie Mills Photography (http://www.spmillsphotography.com). Once or twice a year we do a quick family session photo exchange with each other.

 

This one happened to be on an insanely cold and windy December morning. This session lasted about five minutes. Sometimes that’s all you need. We met up at Meshanticut Lake in Cranston since we’re both Cranstonites and true to our Cranston nature we don’t like to drive very far for anything.

 

I had never shot at Meshanticut before and was pleasantly surprised. The light was pretty sweet since we did it (relatively) early in the morning. Emmett was a bit more cooperative than the kids on our half of the session, though I won’t mention any names (read: Ezra). All’s well that ends well though. We were glad to get a few pictures of our little family and I was happy to get Steph, Bryan, and Emmett some pictures of theirs. Check some out below.

Anias | RI Newborn

Last time you saw Karissa, Stan, and Zekiah was in their maternity photos. Well, the thing that usually happens after maternity photos is that a baby gets born. That’s what happened with Anias, the newest addition to their family.

 

We went over to hang out with them all (if you missed any other post about them, they’re good friends of ours) and take some pictures of Anias and all of them together. Nothing fancy, just some photos so they’d have some and avoid second child syndrome. That’s when you have a thousand photos of your first child and one of your second child.
 
Baby photos are not our forte, but there’s some below for you to check out. Congrats on the new baby!
