Lifestyle 3 Month Baby Photo Session |Walpole, MA Photographer

I haven't blogged in sooooo very long, but I really need to change that because I have lots and lots of gorgeous images to show you from the past few months. Things were crazy and hectic over the holidays, and I wouldn't change it for anything. I love seeing how families have grown over the past year, and I love meeting new families and photographing them for the first time. What I get to do is such a special thing, and I'm so happy that all of you choose me to capture such amazing memories for you. <3 I've been doing a bunch of lifestyle sessions in some lovely homes lately. It's a bit of a change for me, but I really love it. I love the challenge of a new location and finding different ways to photography people doing what they do everyday and showing how special the seemingly not-so-special moments really are.

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.

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

2014 Easter Mini Sessions | Millbury, Massachusetts Child Photographer

So, you guys know that I do very few mini sessions each year. I offer them outdoors in the Spring and Fall, but I've also decided to offer two sets of indoor mini photo sessions per year: Christmas and one other holiday. This year I've decided to go with Easter as the second indoor holiday photo session! Can you say bunnies and pastels? :) What's so great about mini sessions? Well, first, they're perfect for when you don't need a full hour session. You may have recently had a full session with me, but you just want to update a few photos around your home or capture a milestone in your child's life (toothless grin!). Second, they're short and sweet, which is perfect for the attention spans of little children. Third, mini sessions are also a great excuse to get your kids dressed up and have those special holiday photos taken. You only need a handful of poses, and you can print as many as you like to give to friends and family.

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!
