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.

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 Engagement and Wedding Photographer | Sneak Peek!

Lindsey and Adam's wedding is quickly approaching (July will be here before we know it!), and it was so nice to meet up with them last week for their engagement session. They booked me for their wedding last fall, but they wanted to wait for the weather to get better in Massachusetts before taking their photos. This is just a sneak peek of this fun and young couple's engagement photos...more to come!

Millbury, MA Senior Photographer | 2014 Marlborough Senior, Jillian

I swear, all of my 2014 High School Seniors are just gorgeous! Jillian is beautiful and kind and caring, and I really enjoyed getting to know her better while Mackenzie and I were doing her hair and makeup. It's the perfect time to chat, and it really helps in so many ways; you get to relax a bit prior to your photo shoot, and I get to plan your photo session a little better based on your personality and your answers to my many questions. Yes, we always chat and plan prior to the session, but there's something about that one-on-one/in-person conversation that really helps solidify the shoot. Jillian also plays the guitar, which you know I absolutely love! She loves country music and field hockey, and she can't wait to enjoy her last summer before heading off to college.

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.

Sam's Musical Senior Photo Session! | Massachusetts Senior Photographer

Sam is super smart, creative, and just pretty cool all around (I asked her to play a song for me on the guitar, and she starts playing Jewel...pretty much my favorite, ever!!!) . She's a quiet young lady, but don't let that fool you! Once her hair and makeup were done, she was a super model in front of the camera! She will graduate this spring with her 2014 class at St. Peter Marian High School in Worcester, MA, but she's already been taking classes at WPI for the past year. Told ya...super smart! And talented. And beautiful. :) Worcester Photographer Senior Portraits High School Photos Central MA Millbury St. Peter MarianWorcester Photographer Senior Portraits Field Outdoor High School Photos Central MA Millbury St. Peter MarianWorcester Photographer Senior Portraits Field Outdoor High School Photos Central MA Millbury St. Peter MarianWorcester Photographer Senior Portraits Guitar High School Photos Central MA Millbury St. Peter MarianWorcester Photographer Senior Portraits Guitar High School Photos Central MA Millbury St. Peter MarianWorcester Photographer Senior Portraits Guitar High School Photos Central MA Millbury St. Peter MarianWorcester Photographer Senior Portraits Guitar High School Photos Central MA Millbury St. Peter MarianWorcester Photographer Senior Portraits Guitar High School Photos Central MA Millbury St. Peter MarianWorcester Photographer Senior Portraits Field Outdoor High School Photos Central MA Millbury St. Peter MarianWorcester Photographer Senior Portraits Field Outdoor High School Photos Central MA Millbury St. Peter MarianWorcester Photographer Senior Portraits Field Outdoor High School Photos Central MA Millbury St. Peter Marian

Gorgeous Maternity Photo Session | Millbury, Massachusetts Maternity Photographer

I was thrilled to learn that Dani was expecting! I photographed her wedding to Rick last fall, and when I found out she was pregnant and wanted me to take some maternity photos for her, I literally jumped out of my chair. She is gorgeous and a photographer's dream model :). Even better, I was able to use the spectacular lighting in my new studio in Millbury. Here are a few from our session together!

Author Profile | Massachusetts Headshot Photographer, Worcester Headshot Photographer

Martha sent me an email to set up a photo session to revamp her author profile for her upcoming novel and website. I love shooting headshots and adding my own creative flair to them, so I was really looking forward to our session. At the time I had no idea that she was a best-selling author! How cool is that? Even more amazing is that she was totally up for any of my crazy ideas that I wanted to try in my new studio (that was totally unfinished at the time, but I think it worked perfectly for this!), and she even offered some of her own ideas which were fabulous. We made a great team, if I do say so myself! And definitely check out her books on Amazon! You can find both her Young Adult Series, Jaguar Sun and her newest Adult Paranormal series New Breed.
