Lovely Groton Senior | Boston Senior Portraits

I had the pleasure of photographing this lovely senior from Groton yesterday.  First, we met at an urban location and shot in several of my favorites spots.  We then moved onto my favorite park location to capture beautiful images in a country setting.  Every senior session includes two locations and at least two outfit changes.  That way, seniors and their families have many choices when it comes to choosing portraits to commemorate this special time.

And the winner is …. | Massachusetts Family Photographer

And the winner of the Fall Family Session Contest is Carolyn Daly!  She was lucky number 25 and that is the number the random number generator picked.  Carolyn – email me through the Contact tab above so that we can start planning your custom family photography session.  Congratulations to Carolyn and thank you to everyone who entered.  I will be posting images from the session at a later date.

Fall Family Session Contest | Massachusetts Family Photographer

It’s that time of year again to start thinking about family portraits.  Believe it or not, the fall season is almost upon us and it is our busiest time of year at the studio.  Fall sessions book up very quickly with the choice dates being in October.  Generally the fall colors are in full bloom during the weeks of October in New England and that makes for gorgeous family photos.  And this year, I will be offering holiday cards in addition to my standard product offerings taking one more item off your holiday to-do list!

To start the season off with a bang, I have decided to have a little contest.  Comment on this post and I will randomly select one commenter to receive a custom family photography prize package.  Package will include the following:

  1. Free Session Fee
  2. Free 8×10 print
  3. $100 credit towards the purchase of any package.

Comments must be posted between now and Thursday, August 2nd at midnight to enter the drawing.  Session is limited to 5 people.  Session to be held at a predetermined location in Concord.  No purchase necessary.  Session cannot be used for newborn portraits.  Session images will be posted to the Susan Bartolini Photography website.  Comment just once, comments may take a few minutes to be posted to the blog.  Good luck and go!

Newborn Baby H | Boston Baby Photographer

I just wanted to post a little sneak peek from my session yesterday with newborn baby H.  He gave us a run for our money but we were still able to capture some beautiful images.  He really loved having his hands right next to face and we weren’t about to fight him on it.  He wasn’t a huge fan of being posed so we just rolled with it and captured him the way he liked to be.  Once we swaddled him and laid him comfortably on his back, he was able to relax and fall to sleep.  Isn’t he just adorable?
