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 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.

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!

Handsome Baby Boy P | Millbury, MA Newborn Photographer

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!

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?

Calm is Beautiful | Massachusetts Newborn Photographer

This little guy was probably one of the calmest newborns I've ever photographed, and his hair...oh, his hair is to die for!!! Look at it all! He was just 6 days new when he came into my Millbury, MA photography studio for his newborn photo session with me, and he was the perfect model. A squeak here and a cute little sigh every now and then, but other than that he pretty much let me do whatever I wanted. Oh, and his adorable big sis also joined in on some of the photo session fun! So cute! Massachusetts Newborn Baby Boy Portrait Best Photographer Millbury Auburn Worcester Metrowest Grafton Shrewsbury
