Cute Little Family of 3! | Millbury, MA Family Photographer

We had to brave the cold winds for my outdoor fall mini sessions this year. I guess that's to be expected on the last weekend in MA in October! But the light was perfect, the foliage was amazing, and all of the families were great! I truly loved photographing this family of 3, and Little E was all ready to smile for me. They just played and laughed and showed how much they enjoy being a family together. This is just a sampling of their quick 20-minute mini session, and it was jut perfect!

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!

The Goal List: June 2014 | Millbury Massachusetts Premier Photographer

Millbury Massachusetts Best Child Photographer Worcester Felter's Mill Little Girl in Field Photos Central MA Oh my, where has this month gone? We're already 1/3 of the way through June! This is crazy. School is almost over, so we are going to lots of concerts, art shows, meetings, and outdoor activities to wind the year down. It's such a bittersweet year because Cecilia will be leaving her little elementary school and going into third grade at the bigger elementary school in town. It seems like just yesterday that she took the bus as a kindergartener and didn't get off at her stop. She didn't even answer me when I got on the bus looking for her so I didn't think she was on the bus. Talk about panic!!! Let's just say, the police were involved trying to find her, when she was safe and sound on the bus all along. What a little stinker!!!

I just know this summer is going to fly by. I have lots and lots of photo sessions already booked, several weddings to shoot, a few relaxing getaways mixed in, and some fun one-on-one and family time planned with that little cutie up above. Summers in Massachusetts seem so short because we try to cram so much into a few months when the weather is so sunny and gorgeous. Speaking of sun...I am absolutely in love with my late-day sessions lately! I can't get enough of that golden sunshine!

With so much going on, it's super important to have a goal list, a to-do list, and whatever else that will help keep you on track when time is limited and you need to be even more productive than usual.

Millbury, MA Family Photographer | Family Photos to Treasure

The P Family came to visit me at the studio in the fall. They don't live very close to Millbury, so I was honored that they chose me to take their family photos, especially since they had to travel late in the day with two young children! If I recall correctly, Mrs. P and I played phone tag for a bit, but when a mom wants special photos of she and her family, nothing will stop her! The day was perfect, too; it was not too warm and not too cool, and the sunset was amazing. Their two children are some of the sweetest little ones that I've ever met. They listened, they smiled, they danced, they took photos with mom and dad! They were little pros. And their outfits were amazing! Mom did a fabulous job choosing comfy clothes that coordinated well with each other.

I feel happy when I think about their photo session, and I hope the P Family feels the same way every time they look at their beautiful family photos.

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

Product Spotlight: Custom Image Boxes | Central Massachusetts Photographer

Wow, lots of blogging going on this week! Actually, it's really a good thing because there's so much I've wanted to share with all of you. I have sessions upon sessions to blog, but I also want to show you some of the amazing photo products that I offer. First up are my Custom Image Boxes. I love these! They are such a great alternative to albums because they're so versatile. You can leave it on a coffee table for guests to look through when they visit, and because it opens like a book, it would look perfect on your bookshelf, too!

Another great feature of my Custom Image Boxes is that the prints are loose, so you can frame some of your current favorites, but you can very easily switch them out from time to time.

Did I mention the personalized cover? You can choose your favorite photo from your session or even a collage of multiple photos. I have lots of different templates from which you can choose, so these work well for Newborns, Seniors, Families, Weddings, etc. They can hold up to 250 prints, too! See, totally versatile!

Baby Hudson is 6 Months Old! | Millbury, MA Baby Photographer

I've been dying to show you Baby Hudson's 6 month portraits for a while now. You may remember his newborn photos taken last year (http://shawnashenette.com/baby-photography/a-new-little-family-millbury-massachusetts-newborn-photographer/). Hudson is one of my baby-planners, so that means I get to see him grow during his first year, which is just so much fun! I love the little owl photo of him as a newborn (as do many people on Pinterest!). We actually took this set of photos back before the holidays, and his parents wanted to keep them a surprise for their holiday cards and other gifts. So, Hudson is really 9 months old now, but that doesn't mean that I can't share these adorable photos, right?
