Newport RI photographer family portraits

Sachuest Beach (Second Beach) is a favorite spot to take photos in Newport, RI

Photography in Newport RI

The majority of my outdoor photography sessions are located in Newport, RI. Aquidneck Island is such a special place with a lot of scenic landscape to take advantage of. From the clean and beautiful beaches to the long stretches of land with rock walls, I’m sure you’ll find that there is a lot of variety to choose from. There are a lot of Newport, RI locations in my blog post about my favorite photography locations in Rhode Island.

Service area: Naval War College

As a military spouse, I have access to the Naval War College that is based in Newport, RI. Here at this base, you will find two main needs for photography. The first is military families wanting portraits taken with the Pell Bridge in the background. The second is the need for coverage of military ceremonies and graduations that occur on a regular basis. Please message me if you would like to have a photography session on the Naval War College property.


Service area: Rhode Island State Parks in Newport County

Rhode Island state parks are a great resource for permit-free photography in Newport, RI. While there are a lot of beautiful properties associated with the Preservation Society of Newport, they are not free. It’s easy to see why Rhode Island state parks are a wonderful option for your photos. They are so many options for a beautiful, clean, natural, or landscaped backdrop. I encourage you to consider a photography session at Fort Adams and Brenton Point State Park.


Service area: Downtown Newport and Marinas

Obviously Newport, RI is a travelers destination with a bustling main street filled with shopping and restaurants. During the warmer months, the streets fill with tourists and wedding guests who are taking advantage of the cool breezes and Nantucket vibes. I love taking clients here for pictures. There is so much variety! I can get a lot of “looks” just within a city block. I really encourage people to think about using the location versus something in a park because of the variety you will get. Downtown Newport, RI is a great place for professional headshots for actors, corporate portraiture, family portraits, and senior year portraits.
