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.
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!
Do you remember this adorable baby boy? No? Well, if you click here you'll see his adorable newborn session that I photographed. He's now 6 months old, as cute as ever, and filled with smiles and personality!
Just a sneak peek from a this little guy's newborn photo session. LOVE!
This little guy was so tiny and cute; I could've snuggled him all day long. Baby P was just 11 days old when he came to visit me for his newborn photo session. He was the perfect newborn, too! Who am I kidding...they're all perfect! But, he was definitely up for anything. A couple squeaks here and there, and then a squawk for a feeding, but other than that, he barely made a peep. So cute!
I love this last one! Haha!
And I always try to give my newborn clients a collage of all those little features that seem to grow up so quickly!
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?
I was so excited to see Baby K again!!! She was one of my first "official" clients in my new Millbury studio this time around, and at 6 months old, I couldn't believe how much she'd grown since I'd last seen her at just 6 weeks old. I just love all her chunky baby rolls!
Totally behind on blogging my fall and holiday photo sessions, but I am determined to get caught up on these. Believe me, I want to show every single gorgeous face that I get to photograph, and I totally will, but sometimes there's a bit of a backlog during the busiest time of year for photos. Please forgive me??? Reliving this photo session that occurred during the peak of that beautiful and buttery fall light was definitely a much-appreciated treat on this dreary and rainy (but unseasonably warm!!!) day here in Massachusetts. This pair of sisters was so much fun to photograph, and really, the ideal session all wrapped in one. I was able to get in a perfect mix of that crazy running-around-til-I'm-out-of-breath-trying-to-entertain that is typical of most 18-month old sessions coupled with that mature-willing-to-listen-and-I'm-ready-to-be-a-model that is typical of most 16-year old session.
