The Beach Sessions | Millbury, Massachusetts Child and Family Photographer

Mixing things up a bit this summer, and I will be offering some BEACH SESSIONS!!! Oooh, I can't wait for these!  So many of my favorite things all rolled into one: the smell of the ocean, that gorgeous sunset and blue calming water, beautiful children and families, and photographs to capture it all! I can just see these printed as huge canvases on walls already! Why not add some summer sunshine to your holiday cards this year? Professional family beach photos are the perfect way to make your cards stand out from the rest...AND you will beat the holiday rush! How awesome would it be to not have to worry about your holiday greetings at the very last minute? If you're anything like me, you were running to the post office last year on Christmas Eve and frantically sticking stamps to envelopes just as they were shutting off the lights!

2014 Spring Mini Sessions!!! | Millbury, MA Photographer

Everyone's been asking about these! Well, here they are; my OUTDOOR Spring Mini Sessions! With the sunny skies, longer days, and 60 degree weather yesterday, it felt like spring here in Massachusetts. It was a nice little teaser, that's for sure, because were are supposed to get more snow tomorrow. Thanks for the little tease, Mother Nature! But, Spring will be here before we know it, and the flowers will be blooming along with the fields of green grass that are perfect for outdoor spring photos.

I've decided to offer two days of mini sessions this year. I've found that those with smaller children sometimes prefer the weekday sessions, while adults and those wanting family photos prefer the weekend session. As usual, the location will be determined at a later date and emailed to all those participating.

Please email me to book your session or if you have any questions at all. shawna.shenette@gmail.com

Beautiful Love | Massachusetts Couples Photographer, Millbury, MA Photographer

This gorgeous couple was transplanted to Massachusetts from California last Fall, just in time for that massive snow storm we had. What luck, right? Well, they went out and bought lots of long pants, closed-toe shoes and boots (they had mostly flip-flops!), and sweaters pretty quickly. Once the weather started getting nicer this Spring, they wanted to do an outdoor photo session to show the landscape of Massachusetts, their new home, and document this new journey they chose to embark on together. Awesome, right? Their session was just perfect and relaxing, and I think their love for each other really shines through in the images I was able to capture for them. They are both gorgeous! I have so many favorite photos from their session, I had a difficult time choosing which to blog, so there are a lot of them.

My Spring Mini Sessions are here!!! These sessions will be held outdoors so that we can capture some colorful grass and flowers in the photographs with you and your family. All galleries and prints will be back to you in time for Mother's Day, so the photographs from these mini sessions will be perfect to use as gifts for moms, sisters, grandmothers or any of the other special ladies in your lives. There are ONLY SIX SPOTS AVAILABLE, and this will be my last set of mini sessions until my holiday sessions in October.

FASHION FRIDAY | COLD WEATHER PHOTOGRAPHY in MASSACHUSETTS

It was about 15 degrees here in Massachusetts when I drove my daughter to school this morning. Of course, I didn't warm up the car because I'm pretty sure the gas light was already on last night when I pulled into the driveway. Woops! Oh well, we burned a few extra calories keeping warm on the ride to school. For most of the winter months, my photography is limited to the indoors because, let's face it, I'm a wimp when it's cold out; HOWEVER, if someone wanted to do an outdoor photo session in the cold I would be more than happy to brave the wind and snow to take your photos. Think about it, if you're a SENIOR, wouldn't it be fun to book a SENIOR SESSION now for photos and have a totally different look than the summer photos everyone else has? And MOMS: when is the last time you had YOUR photo taken...in REAL clothes...WITH makeup?

So, if you're up for it, here are a few outfits that would work perfectly to keep you both warm and stylish!

I love this outfit for a foggy area such as a forest with a bit of snow. I think the neutral colors and baggy sweater would look great against the natural backdrop. You could even throw on a furry hat in a few of the shots to keep things fun while keeping a bit warm!

I think this outfit would look great on location at a farm or barn that is all covered in snow, maybe with some horses outdoors. The non-casual look of it would be a cool contrast to the rusticness (is that a word?) of the fences and trees. Plus, I know a local farm where it would look amazing!

If you wanted to keep things casual and/or not get involved too much with nature, I think this look is really cute, and it looks really comfy, too. I can just picture some really fun shots with this outfit!

The Outdoor Mini Sessions, The P Family | Massachusetts Family Photographer, Auburn MA Family Photographer

Back in October, I did the first round of my Holiday Mini-Sessions: The Outdoor Version. Thankfully, we had the quintessential fall day here in MA! Perfect outdoor lighting, bright foliage and a slight chill in the air. This first post showcases The P Family. My daughter was in their older son's kindergarten class last year, and since then, we've become good friends thanks to all the school activities, birthday parties, dinners and even being in Disney World the same week last year for vacation. Their boys love the camera, obviously! :p
