Catching Up! https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2021/1/catching-up It's been a while since I've posted on this blog! Life gets busy, and I get more direct bookings through social media so that tends to be where I focus my efforts.  But things have been going well!  In times of Covid-19, things have been strange.  I can't play around in the studio nearly as much as I'd like - I keep it reserved for clients who absolutely can't do outdoor sessions (such as newborns).  I have some upcoming newborn sessions, so I thought I'd take a moment to post a handful of photos from the past year or two since I'm waaaay behind!  Here's a small sampling for you!  Looking forward to getting back on track and posting more regularly here this year.

Beach Portrait Session with the N Family | Auburn, MA https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2018/10/beach-portrait-session-with-the-n-family-auburn-ma This family wanted to do something really BIG for their twins' 6-month session.  We were going to stay local, but they couldn't get the idea of a beach session out of their minds.  We had a couple delays due to bad weather, but we got lucky and had a nice (albeit very HOT) evening later the same week.  Their cousins were staying with them for the summer, so they got in on the action and planned out their gorgeous outfits.  When we arrived at the beach, it was still jam packed with sunbathers and swimmers.  We were lucky enough to find a little corner of sand to cram everyone in for portraits, and I made it look like they had the whole beach to themselves.  We were quite the spectacle - dressed in dapper outfits, making all kinds of noises to get the attention of the babies.  It was 110% worth every minute, though!  I'm over the moon with how incredible this session turned out!  Big brother Nick and little Winston and Vera did an amazing job, especially given the heat and crowds we had to contend with.  I can't wait to see what we manage to pull off for their first birthday this winter!

Charlotte | Leicester, MA Newborn Photographer https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2018/7/charlotte-leicester-ma-newborn-photographer Welcome to the world, baby Charlotte!  This little one was just 9 days old when she came to see me in the studio.  Her family owns a dairy farm that has been in operation for a century, so they brought along all sorts of fun milk/farm related props to incorporate in their session.  I love the glass milk jugs, delivery crate, and the antique cast iron water dish from Mom's grandfather's pig farm.  This little girl was a great sleeper, and only woke up a few times to have a snack, then dozed off again for more photos.  Newborn sessions are always special!

Checking off our summer bucket list already https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2018/5/checking-off-our-summer-bucket-list-already Do you have a summer bucket list?  I do.  Massachusetts summers feel like they get shorter every year.  Now that I have a gradeschooler, it seems even more important to make plans and remember to squeeze in quality family time while we can.  Last night, we checked off a biggie for this summer - and it certainly won't be a one-time deal.  My dad (aka Grampy) took my son fishing.  I haven't been fishing in a good 20 years.  I don't eat fish, so there's not much point.  But I forgot about the best part of fishing - the part where you hang out next to a pond for a couple of hours and just sit.  We chatted, we caught some fish, and we saw some cool wildlife.  Did you know ospreys and river otters live right here in Auburn?  I do now, because I slowed down and watched for a while.  And, of course, I brought along my camera.  This is a prime example of lifestyle photography.  None of this is posed.  This is just our little fishing adventure, in photo form.   Jessica Hughes Photography Jessica Hughes Photography Jessica Hughes Photography Jessica Hughes Photography Jessica Hughes Photography Jessica Hughes Photography Jessica Hughes Photography Jessica Hughes Photography Jessica Hughes Photography

12 Tips for Successful Family Photos https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2018/4/12-tips-for-successful-family-photos Jessica Hughes Photography

I’d be lying if I said family photos are never stressful but, with the right preparation, they won’t be! Here are a few time tested solutions that have worked well for my clients on family photo day, and I hope they help you as well.

The key is to plan in advance and know what to expect, so that on the day of your session, you can be present and fully enjoy the time with your family! My clients often tell me that they had no idea a photo session could be so fun, and I want you to feel that way too!

Here are my top 12 tips for a successful family photo shoot:

 

1) FOCUS ON THE LOVE.

It may sound cliché, but after all, your love for your family is probably the reason you wanted family photos in the first place! In the end, it’s not about what clothes you wore, or what location you chose, or how much you weighed. It’s about capturing what life is like right now. It’s about snuggling, tickling, and playing. It’s about showing your children how much you love them so that they have these memories 20 years down the road.

 

2) DON’T OVER-PLAN.

Nothing spoils a child’s good mood (or dad’s for that matter) faster than too many clothing changes, too many locations, and too many props. I know it’s tempting to get caught up in those perfect Pinterest photos, but the best images happen spontaneously as a result of your unique family relationships. When we’re not working off of a checklist, we’ll have more time to create organic images that you’ll love. Try to limit your top priorities to one or two things (ex: a family photo and a sibling photo).

 

3) ARRIVE AT THE LOCATION EARLY.

On the day of the session, plan to leave an hour earlier than you think you need to (especially if this is your first time having professional portraits taken). The time we’ve chosen for your session is very specific for lighting reasons, and starting on time will set us up for a great session.

Plan to arrive at your session location at least 15-20 minutes beforehand to allow time to find parking, make any last-minute clothing adjustments, and find our meeting spot. If you know you tend to run late, I would even recommend getting an even earlier start than you think you'll need. If you're late and feeling rushed, the whole family will feel that stress and anxiety, and it will often show in your photos.  Arriving early is the most helpful thing you can do for a smooth session!

 

4) KIDS WILL BE KIDS — JUST ROLL WITH IT!

All professional family photographers have seen their fair share of meltdowns, and we work through them every time! Please don’t get mad at your kids if they’re “not behaving.” The best thing you can do is model positivity and let me interact with them naturally. A great image only takes a millisecond to capture, so we’re probably getting a lot more great material than you think! Kids (and even babies) pick up on their parents’ stress levels, so laugh it off and know that happier moments are soon to come. And sometimes, that temper tantrum ends up turning into a hilarious image that you’ll cherish for years to come!

5) PLAN YOUR OUTFITS AT LEAST SEVERAL DAYS IN ADVANCE.

There’s nothing more stressful than trying to get out the door and realizing you have nothing to wear. Plan your outfits well in advance so that you’ll know if something doesn’t fit or needs ironing. And speaking of clothes, it’s a good idea to layer your outfits so that you have outerwear on hand if it’s chilly — and you can take off that coat if we end up with an unusually warm day! Check out this page for more tips about what to wear!

 

6) CLEAR YOUR SCHEDULE.

If you can, take the day (or afternoon) off of work and don’t schedule any activities for the kids. Give yourselves a relaxing morning at home and save your energy for later!  If your session is an early morning one, having the day off can put everyone in a great mood to start your session.  I know it's not always a possibility, but minimizing the craziness of everyday life can help keep you from feeling frazzled by the time you get to your photo shoot.

 

7) FRAME IT AS FUN.

Instead of telling your kids that we’re going to have photos taken, tell them that we’re going to have an adventure and go play with Miss Jess (or whoever your photographer is). It’s the truth!  If you have the time, bring along a change of play clothes and give your kids a chance to enjoy the area after your session.  It's a great way to reinforce the fun aspect, which may make life easier next time you plan photos!

 

8) EARLY TO BED.

You may be tempted to stay up late prepping for your session, but do try to get plenty of rest the night before your shoot.  Not only will you feel good, but it will help minimize dark circles under eyes, twitchy eyelids, and all the other little idiosyncrasies that come from being overtired. 

 

9) NAPS + SNACKS.

Well-rested, well-fed kiddos are a must (this goes for moms and dads, too)! Make sure everyone gets a great nap and a good meal before the session. The best light in summer happens around sunset so, if your session is in the evening, I suggest trying to push naps a little later than usual in the week leading up to the session.  If your child tends to fall asleep in the car, get to your session earlier so there's time to shake off any post-nap crankiness.  Bringing along snacks and drinks is also helpful (especially for full length sessions), but please be sure they are neat food items that won't stick to teeth or stain faces/clothing (avoid Oreos, fruit punch, and the like).  

 

10) BRING A BRIBE.

While the parent in me hates bribes, the photographer in me loves them.  For a special occasion like family portraits, a lollipop, favorite toy, or trip for ice cream can make a huge difference in attitude! Just make sure to save it until after the session — once the bribe comes out, it’s really hard to put it away without tears.  Bribes should be a last resort, after all other efforts have failed to help your child stay calm and focused.

 

11) CHECK YO’ SELF.

Here’s a simple checklist to make sure you’re ready with everything you need:

  • comfy walking shoes
  • something to sit on (blanket/quilt)
  • backup clothing (dirt/spit-up/food happens!)
  • lint roller if you have pets
  • your child’s favorite toy
  • food & water for snack breaks
  • keys/phones out of pockets
  • scrunchies/fitbit/sports watch removed from wrists
  • sunglasses put away
  • kids’ noses and eyes wiped
  • clothing ironed
  • bug repellent for ticks and mosquitoes (and make sure to check yourselves immediately following the session)

 

12) LET GO AND TRUST.

On the day of the session, it’s normal to be nervous (it means you care!). But the best way to love your shots is to let go of those nerves and trust in the photographer you hired. Know that you’ve planned and prepared to the best of your ability, and now your photographer is here to take the reigns and create family portraits that you’ll love. For a couple of hours, you don’t have to be the one to make all the decisions…enjoy it while you can!

Chrisopher | Auburn, MA Newborn Photographer https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2018/4/chrisopher-auburn-ma-newborn-photographer Welcome to the world, baby Christopher!  This little guy was just the sweetest - he reminds me so much of my own son when he was a newborn, so it was a treat to photograph him!  He slept like a champ for most of his session, and we were able to get plenty of amazing shots.  His parents brought in some fun ideas and, if you couldn't tell, they're Disney fans.  Of course there had to be a Mickey Mouse outfit!  I'm in love with how this session turned out!  Congrats, S Family!

Fall Family Session with the S Family | Auburn, MA Portrait Photographer https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2017/11/fall-family-session-with-the-s-family-auburn-ma-portrait-photographer This sweet family was gifted a portrait session with me by a good friend of theirs.  They'd been following my work for a while (which is such an honor to hear!), and were thrilled to be able to bring their girls out for a session!  We headed to a local tree farm when the late afternoon light was just right, and I had a blast getting to know these three girls.  I love spending more time with families during full sessions and getting them to open up.  That's when the magic happens and we get some genuine laughs and smiles.  This session was so much fun!

Fall Mini Session with the Owen and Jack https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2017/10/fall-mini-session-with-the-owen-and-jack I photographed Owen and his dog Jack last year, when they first got their new puppy.  They came back to see me for a mini session this fall.  Owen's a good deal taller, and Jack is MUCH bigger, but very much still a puppy!  It took some serious teamwork to get these shots.  Mom and Dad took turns waving around dog treats, and at one point we had Mom hiding behind a stone wall holding Jack's leash.  It's all in the name of beautiful art, though, right?  :)  Thanks, O Family!  I loved seeing you guys again, and hope to see you again next year when Owen and his buddy are even bigger!

Dance Like Nobody's Watching https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2017/10/dance-like-nobodys-watching This lovely young lady had some bad luck with her dance portraits this year, so her mom called me up to take some proper photos.  We found a beautiful outdoor location and she brought her two favorite costumes.  What talent this girl has!  She's so tall and graceful, and I admire the incredible strength it takes to hold some of these poses!  I had a great time getting creative for this session, and couldn't have asked for a better model!

Family Portrait Session with the D Family https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2017/10/family-portrait-session-with-the-d-family The D Family drove down from New Hampshire to see me for portraits!  It's always a treat seeing these two kiddos and their parents.  They're Disney fanatics, so I love hearing about their adventures!  We had a great time on the farm, chasing grasshoppers, picking flowers, and getting wet feet in the tall grass.  I can't believe how big the kids are getting!  I've been photographing them since they were newborns.  Love this family!

Brittany, Bay Path Class of 2018 Senior Portrait Session https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2017/10/brittany-bay-path-class-of-2018-senior-portrait-session Holy cow.  No, really... this session had cows!  Brittany's family owns Winsky Farm in Oxford, MA.  They raise beef cattle.  I wasn't quite sure what to expect when they called me to do senior portraits for their daughter, but WOW, was I surprised!  Brittany is your typical farmgirl who's sweet and down to earth, and she just so happens to have professional modeling experience!  Combine all that with a stunning family farm that's been in the family for generations, and you've got yourself one incredible senior portrait session!  The cows even came out to see us!  I loved every minute of this session!

Summer Family Portrait Session with the D Family https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2017/10/summer-family-portrait-session-with-the-d-family I grew up with this mama, and now our kids go to school together.  I love when life comes full circle!  Her kids are the best, and they were super patient with me while I tried to squeeze their portrait session in between rainstorms one afternoon this summer.  We got it done, and the kids did an amazing job!  I love how these turned out!

Welcome to the world, baby Brooke! | Sturbridge, MA Newborn Portrait Session https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/9/welcome-to-the-world-baby-brooke-sturbridge-ma-newborn-portrait-session Welcome to the world, baby Brooke!  Photographing newborns is always an honor.  I had the privilege of working with the wonderful A family and their 12-day-old baby girl.  She's brand new, and already letting the world know what she wants.  She spent a good portion of her session eating, but fell asleep for enough time to get plenty of beautiful posed shots as well.  The joy of shooting lifestyle portraits is that I get to capture the reality of being home with a newborn - the beautiful moments, as well as the everyday.  Thank you for a wonderful session, A Family!  Brooke is absolutely precious!

Fall Mini Session with the G Family https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/9/fall-mini-session-with-the-g-family The G Family recently moved to Massachusetts and found me while searching for local photographers.  I'm SO glad they did!  Baby Shea is 9 months old and easily the happiest baby I've ever worked with.  She was all smiles for her session, despite it being a little on the chilly side.  I can't help but grin every time I see her gorgeous, big eyes and her wild, punk-rock hair.  Her family has booked me for holiday portraits and a birthday session as well, and I'm over the moon that I will get to see this little one again!  Thanks for a great session, G Family!

Fall Mini Session with the B Family https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/10/fall-mini-session-with-the-b-family These ladies came to see me for a Fall Mini Session recently.  The girls were such great listeners, and did an amazing job during their session!  We had a perfect early fall afternoon for portraits, and even found some early foliage.  Kathryn was a great big sister, and set a good example for her little sis Lizzie.  They're both such beautiful, smart young ladies!  They did so great, their mom rewarded them with pumpkins from the farm store across the road.  They were so excited and planned to take them home and paint them!

The Print Test: Where you buy your prints does matter! https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/10/the-print-test-where-you-buy-your-prints-does-matter So you've just had your session and have your digital files.  What now?  Most of my clients decide to have prints made.  I can't tell you how many times people have chosen inexpensive options for printing, only to come back and have me make professional quality prints to replace them.  Are consumer labs really that bad?  In short, yes.  They use inferior quality papers and inks to drive down their cost.  Oftentimes, their machines are not properly maintained or calibrated to reproduce the colors you see on your screen correctly.  I've taken a look at some of the more common options for printing, and the results are pretty remarkable!  Check this out:

Print lab comparisons

I know these are small, but no doubt you can see right off the bat that there's a difference in color.  Here's my review of each lab:

 

Pro Lab - The colors from my professional lab are totally accurate.  You can see the same level of detail as in the original, digital file.  The focus is sharp, and it is by far the most accurate representation of the image I created.

CVS - The contrast on the print from CVS is higher than the original.  The highlights (light spots) are too bright and the shadows are too dark.  This results in some detail being lost.  This is a photo of my son, and it makes him look pale and ghostly.  That's certainly not how he looks, and not what I captured in my original photo.

Shutterfly - Shutterfly has amazing deals and it's a great option for getting lots of snapshots printed.  For professional quality photos, however, it's not ideal.  My photo actually arrived blurry.  The original file is very sharp, but if you zoom in on the eyes of the Shutterfly print, it's slightly out of focus.  The highlights are a bit too bright, and it has a slight warm cast to the print.  

Target - The print from Target is just awful.  It has a cyan/blue cast to it, which makes my son look slightly ill.  The contrast is too high, resulting in washed out highlights and blackened shadows.  It almost looks like someone put a bad Instagram filter over the photo.  That's not how I want my own photo of my son to look, and it's certainly not how I want my work to be represented on someone's walls.

Walmart - Walmart has similar problems to Target, but instead of the colors being too cool, they're too warm.  The photo has a red tone to it that was not in the original.  I work hard to get skin tones just right when I process images, and when a printer uses slightly too much of one color it throws the whole thing off.  The contrast was also off in this image, leading to some loss of detail.  

 

In short, a professional lab is the only way to go if you want your photos to look as amazing as when you view them on your screen.  I work one-on-one with my lab to guarantee that the colors and details I see on my screen are what they deliver in their printing.  Their prints are guaranteed to last for generations.  Large prints (bigger than 11x14) come mounted so they won't sag in their frames when hanging on a wall.  I make sure things are done right for you.  Professional photography is an investment, and the quality of your prints should reflect that you've purchased something that will last more than a lifetime.  I want your photos to not only look spectacular, but to be heirloom items that your children can show their own grandchildren.  This matters to me, and it should to you as well.

The D Family Portrait Session https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/9/the-d-family-portrait-session Katie first contacted me about a year ago with the idea to do a large family portrait session as a gift for her mother.  A series of events (a pregnancy, some health issues, weather trouble) led us to postpone a number of times - it's tough getting a large number of people from all different parts of Massachusetts together for a portrait session!  We finally managed to find a day and time that worked, and we had perfect weather.  We seriously could not have asked for a better morning for their session!  It was so wonderful to see this beautiful grandmother surrounded by so much love.  All her grandbabies were there, and they all did such a great job listening to instructions and being patient!  It's the best feeling in the world to be able to give incredible portraits to a family so they can cherish them for generations to come.

Family Portrait Session with the D Family https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/9/family-portrait-session-with-the-d-family The D Family drove down from Salem, NH to see me for family portraits.  They're good friends of mine, and I've been photographing their children since they were born.  One's in preschool now, and the other started Kindergarten.  It's crazy how fast time flies!  We moved their session time to avoid rain, but still had to battle 30 mph wind gusts.  Regardless, the session turned out beautifully!  Their kiddos are so cute, and were both filling me in on how they're heading to Disney in a couple short weeks.  I'm jealous and want to tag along!

What is lifestyle photography? https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/7/what-is-lifestyle-photography Lifestyle sessions are quickly becoming a favorite of mine.  I get a lot of questions about what "lifestyle photography" means, so I thought I'd take a moment to define it.  Lifestyle sessions fall somewhere in the middle of posed portrait sessions and true photojournalism.  It blends the candid with the staged.  The goal is to tell a story about people in their own environment in a natural, authentic, yet artistic way.  

My portrait sessions have always had an organic feel to them.  I love being outside, and encourage people to wear things that make them comfortable or choose locations that hold some sort of meaning for them.  I don't typically go for a prop-heavy, stylized look, so lifestyle sessions are a natural fit for me to offer.  Lifestyle sessions aren't completely candid.  Let's be honest - it takes a bit to adjust to having a lady with a camera following you around in your home, or at a farm, or wherever you choose to have your session.  I do offer suggestions and work around the best light to make sure your photos look as good as possible.  What I strive to capture are the moments that will make you look back and say "Oh my goodness, I remember when..."  I want clients to look back on their sessions and remember how they felt, not just how they looked.  Of course, I always include some posed, smiling portraits as well.

So what do you DO for a lifestyle session, exactly?  Well, whatever you like.  If you have a newborn baby, I will capture you snuggling, feeding, changing, and doing all the things that being at home with a new baby entails.  You can pick something that your family loves to do, and we can build a session around that:  gardening, cooking, playing with toys, fishing, you name it.  By having the session in your home, your back yard, or at a place you love, we'll create portraits that convey the emotions of real moments and relationships that will be treasured by your family for years to come.  Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography Worcester, MA Lifestyle Photography

Three Months Milestone Portrait Session https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/7/three-months-milestone-portrait-session Baby K is 3 months old!  I had the pleasure of photographing him at home, with his big brother and sister.  He's got the brightest blue eyes, and great big baby cheeks.  Three months is a fun milestone to shoot!  Babies are still small, but starting to fill out.  They're so much more alert than newborns at this stage, too!  K was no exception.  He took a few snack breaks, but was wide awake and taking everything in during his portrait session.  I can't wait to see him again this fall for his 6 month session!  It's always a joy watching little ones grow!

Welcome Baby Z! | Charlton, MA Newborn Portrait Session https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/7/welcome-baby-z-charlton-ma-newborn-portrait-session When Z's mom called me about a newborn session, she let me know that her baby had already arrived.  She'd had a session lined up, but the other photographer was unable to do it.  She found me online and was excited about the idea of doing a session in her home, and I was more than happy to help her capture some precious memories of her baby boy, who was already two months old by the time I met him.  While he was bigger and much more alert than tiny newborns, it didn't mean good portraits were out of the question!  He was a prime candidate for a lifestyle session, which focused on his interactions with his mom and dad (and awesome dog!) in their beautiful home.  I love lifestyle sessions, as they truly capture what it's like to have an infant at home.  Z was amazing and didn't fuss during his session, except once when he announced it was time for a feeding.  I hope he's always so good-natured!  Thanks for an amazing session, T Family!

Spencer, MA Mother's Day Family Portrait Session with Jessica Hughes Photography https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/5/spencer-ma-mothers-day-family-portrait-session-with-jessica-hughes-photography I was so excited when this family contacted me for a portrait session for four cousins!  The photos are a gift for their grandmother for Mother's Day.  Their grandfather passed away last year, and they wanted to have the session at a place that would reflect his love of the outdoors and fishing.  I can't think of a more beautiful tribute to his legacy!  We met up in Spencer at one of my favorite parks, and lucked out with some great weather.  I have no doubt that these images will bring peace and happiness to this family for generations to come!

Auburn High School Senior Rep Session https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/4/auburn-high-school-senior-rep-session Ryan is one of my Senior Reps for the Class of 2017.  He's a student at Auburn High and plays football and hockey for the Auburn Rockets.  He loves outdoor activities, so we headed to a local tree farm for his rep session.  We had amazing weather - it's not often you get to wear shorts for a portrait session in March!  If you're an Auburn High School student in need of yearbook portraits, make sure to find Ryan for a coupon for some free wallet prints, and mention his name when you give me a call!

Class of 2017 Senior Rep Search https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/2/class-of-2017-senior-rep-search

I'm looking for some fabulous, outgoing high school Seniors from the class of 2017 to represent Jessica Hughes Photography!  Here are the details - please read carefully and find out if you're the right fit for the job!

 

Senior Rep Requirements:

  • You must currently be a high school Junior, graduating in 2017.

  • You must live in and attend high school in central Massachusetts (within 25 miles of 01507).

  • You and your parents must agree to promote only for Jessica Hughes Photography for your senior portraits from the time of acceptance through the end of the 2016/2017 school year.

  • You will receive a minimum of 3 watermarked, web-sized images for online, social media use.

  • A discounted session fee of $50 is required upon the signing of your Senior Rep Agreement.

  • You are responsible for sending Jessica Hughes Photography a minimum of 3 referrals.  These referrals must book, pay for, and complete their senior portrait session by July 2016.

  • If a minimum of 3 referrals is not met, you will be responsible for paying the balance of your senior session fee ($250). 

  • Your parent or guardian MUST sign a model release, allowing Jessica Hughes Photography to use your images for advertising and promotional purposes.

 

What do you get?

  • A FREE mini-session this spring before the end of your Junior year.  This shoot will last about an hour.  You will be using the images (10-15) from this session to advertise throughout the year!  Following this session, you will be provided with 50 customized referral cards with your name, photo & my contact information to pass out to your friends.

  • A standard senior portrait session (between 1 and 2 hours, no limit on the number of outfit changes) for only $50 (which will already have been paid when you signed up).  You'll get a minimum of 20 new images along with a disc and printing rights.  That's a $200 savings!

  • A 20% discount on professional quality prints and other products purchased via Jessica Hughes Photography.

 

Need more incentive?

  • For every 3 referrals you send me that book, pay for, and complete their session, you will receive a $25 Visa gift card!

  • Each friend you refer will receive 24 wallets from their own senior session!

 

Okay, so now you're interested.  What do you do next?

Before you can become an official Senior Rep for Jessica Hughes Photography, you'll need to fill out an application.  I'll pick at least one Senior from each local high school who I think can do the best job of representing my services.  If you're up for the task, send me an email at jessica@jessicahughesphotography.com and I'll send you the application!

Mia's Winter Portrait Session | Auburn, MA Family Photographer https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2016/2/mias-winter-portrait-session-auburn-ma-family-photographer I had the privilege of spending New Year's Day with this lovely young lady and her mother.  It had snowed a couple days earlier, and we were left with just the right amount for a session.  It was a little chilly, but that didn't stop us from having an awesome time!  Mia hasn't had professional portraits taken since she was a baby, but she wasn't shy at all.  By the end of her session, she was coming up with her own locations and poses for me.  I absolutely love when clients get excited about having their portraits taken!  Even more importantly, we got her mom in for a few shots.  Mom wasn't expecting to be photographed, but it turns out those are her favorite images from the session.  Now her daughter can look back on these photos and have beautiful memories of those moments of togetherness.  I love being able to give that gift to families!

Happy New Year 2016 from Jessica Hughes Photography! https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2015/12/happy-new-year-2016-from-jessica-hughes-photography I can't believe 2015 is already coming to a close.  It's been a phenomenal year for me, and I'm incredibly grateful for all of the opportunities that have been presented to me, both personally and professionally.  I have met some amazing folks doing what I do, and many of my clients have become friends.  I'm blessed to be able to capture memories for so many families and individuals.  Here is a little look back at some of the sessions I've done this year.  I hope that 2016 holds even more joy and excitement for myself and my family.  May this upcoming year be filled with happiness, peace, and prosperity for all of us!  Happy New Year!

My Favorite Time of Year https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2015/9/my-favorite-time-of-year Late Summer.  Is there anything better than warm days, cool nights, and that golden glow that everything seems to get this time of year?  It's when all the goodness of summer rolls into the best parts of fall.  I just love it.  It's also my favorite time of year for portrait sessions.  I love the warm light this season lends to photographs.  Fall holds a dear place in my heart, too, but I find myself liking the warm sunshine more and more after recent harsh winters.  I'm not quite ready to relinquish that for cold just yet, so we're soaking up as much as we can before days get too short and cold again.

Mommy & Me | Summer Portrait Session with the M Family https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2015/8/mommy-me-summer-portrait-session-with-the-m-family Little L and his mother booked a portrait session with me recently.  We started off at their home, since they'd just moved into a new house and wanted some photos to celebrate.  From there, we went to a local park for more portraits.  L wasn't into having his picture taken, but he loved having the freedom to roam around outdoors.  I just captured him as we explored the park, and the photos came naturally.  He and his mom were both wonderful to work with!  I hope to see them back for more portraits soon!

1) Dress appropriately for the weather!  Summer in New England often means hot and humid days, which can lead to sticky, sweaty people.  Choose breathable, lightweight fabrics that don't weigh you down.  As for shoes, flats or cute sandals are great options.  Going barefoot is a great way to go for outdoor photos, too!  Just make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes to your session to stay comfortable (and keep your feet clean), and you can kick them off for the actual photos.

2) Think about your hair.  If you or your family members' hair reacts to humidity poorly (frizzes or goes limp), consider opting for a hairstyle that won't leave you feeling insecure.  A pretty braid or other updo can be a great choice.  If you prefer to wear your hair down, using a little extra product can help keep frizz at bay.  Dry shampoo can help combat greasiness if you're worried about sweating too much.  

3) Pack necessities that will help keep you cool.  I recommend bringing plenty of water or other cool drinks for yourself and your family and some light snacks like granola bars or crackers.  Take a hairbrush and makeup/powder for touchups with you as well.  

4) Rest assured that I won't let you overheat.  It can be hard to want to be outdoors for very long when it's ridiculously hot and humid, but know that I will do everything in my power to make sure you stay comfortable.  We'll spend plenty of time in the shade, walk slowly, take breaks when necessary, and I will never push you or your family into staying longer than you can or want.

5) If you're still in doubt, rescheduling is an option!  I'm flexible, and I want to make sure you're happy.  If you're pregnant, have a medical condition, or just cannot tolerate the heat, feel free to talk to me about choosing a new date.  I can usually accommodate you, and we'll find a new day for your session when the weather is a bit more agreeable for you.

I hope you've found this helpful!

Auburn High Class of 2016 Senior Portrait Session https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2015/8/auburn-high-class-of-2016-senior-portrait-session I love senior portrait sessions.  My favorite thing about them is getting to connect one on one with a person in one of the most exciting times of their lives, talking about their future plans, and making them feel comfortable and beautiful.  Meg's session was phenomenal.  She was relaxed in front of the camera from the start, and we had a great time exploring the park for the perfect spots for portraits.  She's an artist, and her goal is to teach art to young children one day.  Good luck, Meg!  I hope your senior year is amazing!

The D Family | Summer Portrait Session https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2015/6/the-d-family-summer-portrait-session The D Family drove down from New Hampshire for my Summer Mini Session day.  I've been photographing their children since they were born, and it's always fun seeing how much they've grown since the last time I saw them!  We had lots of fun throwing rocks in the water, playing a couple rounds of Pooh Sticks (throwing sticks in the river and seeing who's comes out from under the bridge first), and chasing a pretty butterfly.  This is why I love doing outdoor sessions!

The P Family | Summer Portrait Session https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2015/6/the-p-family-summer-portrait-session I met up with the P Family for a Summer Mini Session - these kids were a blast!  They loved exploring the park, watching out for wildlife (we saw frogs, toads, and even a great blue heron!), and pretending said wildlife was sneaking up on the photographer.  Haha!  They were wonderful kids, and it was so good to meet the whole family!

Charlton, MA Family Portrait Session with the R Family https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2015/6/charlton-ma-family-portrait-session-with-the-r-family The R Family came to see me this past weekend for a family portrait session.  Their little man is going to be turning one next month!  It feels like just yesterday that I was taking maternity portraits, and then newborn portraits for them.  Both of their children are absolutely wonderful, and rocked their session.  We had a ton of fun exploring a local nature sanctuary here in Charlton, and even saw a big toad and a brown bunny during the shoot.  It was a perfect summery evening, too!  It's always a joy to photograph this family.

They are expecting a new baby girl very soon!  We headed out to the reservoir in West Boylston for some amazing portraits by the Old Stone Church.  It's a beautiful location, and we had the perfect evening for photos.  I'm so excited for them and know little L is going to make an amazing big sister.

Exist in Photos https://www.jessicahughesphoto.com/blog/2015/5/exist-in-photos Mothers are often the ones behind the camera; the ones capturing the memories of their families. Many of us aren't fond of being in photos ourselves, for numerous reasons. It's important to remember, however, that our children will grow up and will one day want to reflect on these years. For their sake, you must exist in photos. Don't worry that you're not perfect. You're their mother, and that's more than enough.
