Beautiful Newborn – Boston Baby Photographer

This sweet little newborn visited me in the studio a few weeks back.  She was already about 3 weeks old but was still very sleepy and peaceful.  We were able to shoot a couple different set ups while she slept.  She didn’t really cry much at all and was angel for the entire session!

First Birthday and a Cake Smash!

I am so behind in blogging sessions.  My calendar is just crazy between now and the end of June.  I am just trying to keep up!  This was a first birthday session from April.  The parents wanted some shots of their son at one year old and then a fun cake smash at the end.  He was a little unsure about the cake, but I think he had a great time exploring it!  Happy Birthday!

Spring Mini Family Shoot

RAIN RAIN RAIN.  Several of my shoots recently have been postponed due to all the rain we’ve been having.  In fact, we seem to only have rainy days when I have a shoot scheduled.  Luckily, the weather held for this recent Spring Mini Session at my favorite location.  As you can see we were able to capture many lovely images in less than an hour!

Announcing Spring Mini Sessions!

By popular demand, I am now announcing Spring Mini Sessions.  You will receive a 30 minute custom photography session at a gorgeous Concord location, at least 10 proofs to view in your private online gallery and 4 hi-resolution digital images of your choice on a disk.  You will be able to use the digital images for cards, prints, or sharing online.  Whatever works best for you!  Payment of the fee holds your session and I cannot hold a session until payment is received.  Sessions will be booked on a first come first serve basis.  This is a great opportunity to try custom photography at a reduced rate.  I only offer one or two mini sessions each year, so don’t wait!



Amy - April 17, 2011 - 2:17 am

Grab your mini session quick! You can’t go wrong with Susan behind the lens! She is AMAZING!

Spring Studio Session – Boston Children’s Photographer

I had a wonderful session with this sweet young lady.  Her mom wanted to get some spring photos as well as a few photos of her daughter in her Easter dress.  We decided to do a morning studio shoot with several wardrobe changes.  As you can see, we were able to achieve a wide variety of looks from a single session.  Not only did we take advantage of several set ups in the studio, but we ventured outside for a few minutes, since it was such a beautiful day.  I love that my studio is in an area that has multiple “urban” outdoor scenes to shoot in.  It gives me the flexibility to provide my clients with a nice variety of shots from a single session!  Thanks again Amy for being so awesome and up for all my ideas!

Amber - April 15, 2011 - 1:34 am

Wow, these are incredible!! Such variety in a single session. Just beautiful.

Sasha - April 15, 2011 - 2:50 am

Gorgeous photos of a gorgeous girl – nice work ladies!

Tessa Linden - April 15, 2011 - 3:53 am

Wow! Look at all those gorgeous images. I bet her mom LOVES these. That last black and white is stunning.

Elle - April 15, 2011 - 5:49 am

Wow, these are gorgeous! Amazing variety! She looks like a child model!

Kristi - April 15, 2011 - 12:02 pm

Fabulous variety! You got some awesome shots out of one session!!

Amy - April 15, 2011 - 12:04 pm

Yes, her mom LOVES these! Susan is just so talented! Thanks for such incredible photos!

Amy, Kaylee and I are looking at these (again for me), and we love them. Kaylees favorite is the one with her arms crossed
and she is standing sideways. What different tastes we have.
I just love them all, I can’t stop looking at them.

Kathy and Kaylee - April 16, 2011 - 9:52 pm

Woops, correction the one of her hands on her hips Kaylee loves.
