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!

She's A Girly-Girl, For Sure! | Massachusetts Child Photographer

I had met Hillary and her mom a while back when I was looking for headbands for some of my clients (Hillary is wearing one of her mom's creations in these photos, too!). We connected through Etsy and continued chatting over the past year on facebook, etc. It's been great getting to see Hillary grow from the little 8-month old when we first met to the sweetest little girl at two-years old. I was thrilled to get the chance to photograph her cute little face during our mini-session together at my studio.

The Goal List: July 2014 | Massachusetts Photographer

Massachusetts Child Photographer Beach Photos Provincetown MA Millbury Auburn Worcester Sutton Grafton July was so amazing that I didn't even post a goal list! Actually, it was filled with lots of vacation, beach, pool, and family time...and it was awesome! I still worked and got lots done (3 weddings!!!), but it was definitely less schedule-oriented than usual with C home from school and the sunshine calling our names. We took our yearly vacation to Provincetown to the most amazing little condo right on the ocean (a photographer's dream and where I took the above photo), celebrated the 4th of July with cookouts and fireworks, and had fun at C's first National Competition in Providence. Wow, when I think back to everything that we did, it just makes me happy!

I'm so OK with having no set goals last month, but this month is different. Yes, summer is only HALF OVER, but a photographer's busy season is officially here! Mix busy season with summer vacation, and I have to make sure every second counts when I'm working.

So, here's to the goal list, and may I accomplish everything on it.

BUSINESS GOALS | JUNE

  • Blog 15x this month! <--this will be my #1 goal until it's achieved
  • Get my inbox down to 1500 new emails (gonna try and take this in baby steps this month)
  • Order new sample albums
  • Choose new website design and start working on it
  • Choose outfits for Senior Model Styled Shoot!!! SO MUCH FUN!!!!
  • Test out new Wedding Photography Workflow
  • CLEAN OFF DESK!!

I did clean off my desk, but it's gotten messy again. Not as mess as it was, but it's definitely not as clean and organized. Must do this again!I've also been looking for a new website/blog design, but I haven't found one that I really like yet, so I can't cross it off.  I also did a lot of things that weren't on the above list (Senior Model Rep Shoot, Senior Lookbook, New Senior Pricing Sheet), so I will let a few of those uncrossed off items go.

PERSONAL GOALS | JUNE

  • Continue with my exercise and better eating. I've been walking for about an hour each night. The weather is perfect, and I love listening to podcasts!
  • Book all of C's camps for the summer month <-- um, yea, need to do this ASAP!
  • Buy some new clothes for summer <--- DESPERATELY NEED!

I will say for June that I did pretty good with exercise and eating; however, July is a totally different story! Time to get back on that. One month until my sister's wedding! EEEK!!!

_______________________________________________________________

 BUSINESS GOALS | AUGUST

  • Blog 12x this month. Make a blogging calendar and stick to it!
  • Order new sample albums
  • Choose new website design
  • Accounting organization
  • Create a Progress Folder and Progress Sheet for each current client
  • Update iOS on my iMac

PERSONAL GOALS | AUGUST

  • Get back to exercising a little each day and eating better. Have to fit into my Matron of Honor dress in one month!
  • Enjoy the last few weeks of summer with C with more pool, beach, and a couple of day trips!

And the next time I write my Goal List, the summer will be over :( (although, summer seems to hang around here in Massachusetts far into September nowadays). C will be back in school and back to dance class, life will be hectic again, and the days/weeks/months will fly by. Before we know it, Christmas will be here.

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!

Millbury Massachusetts Child Photographer | My Mother's Day Gift!

So, this was my Mother's Day Gift, to myself, with a little help from the best daughter in the world. It took a little bit of bribing, but she agreed to get dressed up and let me brush and braid her hair for an outdoor photo shoot that I've been thinking about since winter. It all started with the shirt (or should I say, the dress, since it was a size 3T. LOL!). I saw it in the store, and I instantly loved the light yellow gingham and the white collar. The beret was found last summer in a vintage shop in Provincetown, and I've been dying to use it in a shoot since I laid my eyes on it. Overall, I'm happy with the results, and I'm going to make myself and album to cherish! Millbury Child Photographer Outdoor Portraits Children Grafton Worcester Sutton Auburn Shrewsbury

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.

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?

Couple of Cute Sisters | Millbury, MA Child Photographer

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.
