WORCESTER MA NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER | New baby sister

I love photographing newborns! They are so warm and cuddly, and I have so much love for my job and for my clients. I am truly lucky that they choose me as their newborn photographer to capture such amazing moments that they will always treasure.

I love being able to watch moms and dads with their new babies. Sometimes the emotions take over as they are holding their newborn, and I once again think of how lucky I am that I get to document this all for them with beautiful newborn photos that they will lovingly show to everyone. Also, I love taking a peak at their reactions as I am photographing their newborn baby. I can glance back at them and see them tearing up. Sometimes, I don’t even have to look because I will hear the faintest little sniffle as they are watching me pose their perfect little baby. I have been given the honor of patting their little backs and shushing them back to sleep and always having the title of being their newborn photographer.

This adorable family visited me for Holiday Photos in November, and they quickly booked a newborn photo shoot for their new baby girl arriving in February. I was absolutely thrilled with their quick decision. Baby M's newborn session went perfectly and I was able to capture some great moments for this family.  xoxoxo

The beach is my most favorite place to be in the whole world. There's nothing more relaxing than the sounds of the waves crashing or the smell of the salty air. Ahhhh! When you combine my love for high school senior photos and the beautiful blue ocean, I am in heaven! We are so lucky here in central Massachusetts, too, because we can usually find a beach within 60-90 minutes of most towns.

Tonight, I'm off to shoot another High School Senior Photo session at the beach; I thought sharing this session from last year would be the perfect way to get me in the mood. The weather is perfect, and I know it's going to be an absolutely amazing photo shoot!

Gorgeous New Mom | Worcester MA Maternity Photographer

Worcester MA Maternity Photographer

Not only does it feel like spring with these warmer temperatures these last few days, it's starting to look like spring! I do love my indoor studio sessions, like the maternity photo session I'm sharing today; however, it will be nice to get outside again. Being able to vary my sessions between studio, to forest, to the beach is just one of the amazing reasons I love being a Worcester Ma Maternity Photographer.

I've gotten to know this beautiful family over the past few months as they've planned for and then welcomed their new baby girl!  The best part about my job reason #573218 : My maternity sessions are usually the beginning of a wonderful journey together! They lead to newborn sessions to 6 month sessions and to 1 year sessions. Many times I get to watch the littles grow to ages 2 and 3 and 4 and even become big brothers and sisters <3 My job is amazing.

Those Eyes! | Millbury, MA Child and Baby Photographer

massachusetts child baby newborn photographer worcester millbury auburn grafton shrewsbury northborough westborough For the very first Teach Me Tuesday, I thought I'd answer one of the questions I'm asked the most often about my photos: How do you get your eyes to look so clear and shiny?

Eyes are my most favorite part of the photos that I take, and I like to highlight them. Many people think I Photoshop them or do something specific to just the eyes, but the real answer is that I don't do anything different to the eyes at all!

MA Child and Baby Photographer Worcester Central Massachusetts Millbury Grafton Westborough MetroWest

I LOVE my prime lenses, specifically my Canon 50 1.2L. I am obsessed with it on my Canon 5D MK III, and it very rarely leaves my camera. It creates some of the most beautiful bokeh (that blurry background) around! I shoot as close to wide open as possible for the situation, thanks to my prime lens, and I make sure to focus on the eyes. This helps me get those tack sharp eyes while the rest of the image flows around it softly with that gorgeous depth of field.

MA Child and Baby Photographer Worcester Central Massachusetts Millbury Grafton Westborough MetroWest You just need to practice a lot, learn how to shoot on manual, know your lighting, and understand your camera. Start shooting at 2.2, then 2.0, then 1.8, 1.4, etc. I've found that every lens has a "sweet spot" and this just takes practice to find what works best for you and your style of shooting. While I know everyone thinks that it's my camera that takes the great photos, there really is a little more involved than just having a great camera. If you think it's easy, I would challenge you to take a 50mm 1.2L and use it at 1.2 and achieve nice, sharp eyes within your first 10 photos.

I understand the 1.2L is a bit on the pricey side, but you can definitely get some great, sharp eyes with other primes, such as the 50mm 1.8. This was my very first prime, and it is about $100. If you don't have a prime lens, practice at the lowest aperture of your lens and see what you can do! If you have any technical questions, I'm always happy to answer them for you.
