Valentine’s Day Mini Session Collage

One of the nice things about the Mini Sessions is that there are a lot of fun things you can do with the images.  You can hand out custom Valentine’s Day cards to family, friends and classmates.  You can have a custom calendar made to enjoy throughout the year. Or you could get a custom collage like the one below.  It’s super cute to hang in your child’s room or gift to Grandma & Grandpa! There are some appointment times still available. 978 758 2804  or email: steinhoff13@charter.net

“One must maintain a little bittle of summer, even in the middle of winter.” – Henry David Thoreau

People often ask me if I like to photograph outside during the winter.  The answer is, “I do!”  There is beautiful light during the Winter, especially when there is snow on the ground.  The sun, low in the winter sky, shining through the bare trees is soft and brings a certain peacefulness to the images. Though there might not be flowers, the colors of scarfs and hats or vests lets us brighten the photos with the colors of our choice. Book your family’s winter shoot before the snow disappears!

What should my little girl wear for her session?

What should my child wear for the session?  I think this is the most commonly asked question by my clients.  It’s not an easy one to answer either. Putting together an outfit for a photoshoot gets increasingly more tricky with each person you add.  You can get away with almost anything (meaning subtle or funky, not dirty or misfitted) with one subject.  In fact, you can have a lot of fun with colors and patterns when you’re only concerned with one child in the photo.  I love many of the bright and bold patterns, especially for girls.

This is a cute dress from Janie and Jack.

And here, Lipstik Girls has great green top and leggings.

Would I put them together on sisters in a photo?  NO, but invidually they are fab.

If you don’t want to spend top dollar, you need to check you Buttons and Bows Consignment Couture in Acton.  Jillian Shaw has a fabulous store full of high end consignment clothes for babies and children.


Welcome little girl

Welcome beautiful baby girl.  The sweetest newborn I’ve had to date.  She barely made a peep and let me reposition her several times.  Both Mom and Grandma were there for the shoot and enjoyed seeing Khloe in her cute poses.


Etsy…have you been?

No driving necessary.  Etsy is a social commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items as well as art and craft supplies. Etsy is fun and creative!  www.etsy.com

My job for today was to photograph baby knits for Fudgie Knits on Etsy.  The baby booties are so adorable that I had to share.
