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!

Clothing/Color combination for Summer Family Portraits

Here’s a summer color pallete that looks great at the beach or in the green grass.  Cheryl Steinhoff Photography is now booking for August 2012.  Check out the booking calendar on www.cherylsteinhoffphotography.com


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.


This is in Nashua? What an amazing space!

Yes, this is in Nashua. It’s a very cool new wine bar called Napa East. It’s in a little bit of an obscure location, but it’s super easy to get to and has tons of parking….which it will need!  It opened today. Check out their website…it went up last night! http://www.napaeast.com/

I loved the food (menu on the website) and that they have 100 wines by the glass!  I only made it down to the second one on the wine list, but I will be back.  The atmosphere is what really sets this place apart from anywhere else outside of (and perhaps inside of) Boston. It’s got lofty ceilings, great textures, comfy booths, an enormous bar (which I like to call the infinity bar), and über cool lighting through out. Oh, and I mean through out…the men’s room has a cool fixture too. Lighting fixture….geeze.

The construction and design was done by none other than Brian and Melissa from Zagorites Master Builders. Ah…, ya… you should check out their website.  http://zdesignconstruct.com/  Stay tuned for some super snazzy snaps (photos) from Cheryl Steinhoff Photography on the Zagorites website. The above iphone capture will have to do for now. But don’t you love the glow of the place??? Just sayin’ …check it out!


Boy and Pup

Is there anything better than a boy and his new puppy?  I challenge you to find something.  The smile and the confidence that the child exudes in these photos made my day.  I love how a dog can make you feel better so easily.
