Filed under: children,families,newborn — msullivan @ 5:22 pm

It was super-duper hard for me to narrow it down to 5, and it’s not just the image, but everything around it for me – the people in them, the moment, there’s just something about these images for me.

Please vote for your favorite by leaving a comment on this post – please only one vote per person =)

The owner of the image that gets the most votes will receive a free 8×10 print!!!!

I will announce the winner on Monday, January 4th

#1 (sibling):

I love this one because I love these girls, but I know I would love it even if they weren’t friends with my girls =)

#2 (mother and child):

I love this one because it wasn’t posed, it was just an awesome moment between a mom and her little guy

#3 (newborn):

I think I like this one because it was such hard work to get her to go to sleep. It was one of the hottest days of the year and we had to turn off the a/c and turn on the blow dryer and her parents were such good sports about it=)

#4 (portrait):

This was such an awesome portrait session because Danielle is so fun and relaxed and beautiful. We had to wait here for a long time for the wind to blow and I love the result

#5 (family):

I just love the feeling of this one.  By far my favorite family portrait of the year

and here’s a sneak peek from the awesome NYE wedding I shot yesterday (and yes, her dress was Chartreuse!!!!! so fun!)

baby makes 3 girls

Filed under: newborn — msullivan @ 10:29 pm

I have 3 girls, so it’s always fun when someone else joins the club.  My dear friend brought her 3rd girl over to my place today for a photo shoot and she was as cute as can be and even gave us a smile:

mini sessions day 2 & 3

Filed under: children,newborn — msullivan @ 11:16 pm

Boy, have I been busy! I’ve slacked on blogging, but I’ve been hard at work with mini sessions and holiday card orders.  Here are a few of the shots I got that I can show you (I can’t wait till I can post some of the family shots!)

First off, the cutest head of hair (and face!):

Then, a family picture (sort of) – I know this isn’t going on the Christmas cards because they picked a different one =)

then a teeny tiny one:

and then I used this cute little guys picture to test out some of the new textures I bought today – the only thing I bought on black friday!

the first one on the left has no texture added:

Baby makes 3 for this family and for me – this was the 3rd newborn shoot for me within the last 2 weeks and I have more scheduled! Check out this little one – she isn’t even due yet! She was 4 weeks early and a sweet as can be.  Here she is on a family heirloom:



she even gave us a few smiles:

I think it just runs in the family. Here is his mom and dad before he was born:


and here he is now (I swear he did this on his own):


isn’t he the sweetest?

Hot. But worth it.

Filed under: newborn — msullivan @ 11:01 pm

One of my favorite parts of being a photographer is going into peoples homes and spending time with them (and believe me, it takes a looong time to get a newborn to go to sleep – I think they know I’m coming and want to stay awake for their close up, haha ) even when it’s the hottest day of the year and I have to torture them by asking them to turn off the a/c and turn on a blow dryer so we can get a shot like this:


Yes, we were all dripping with sweat when I left, but it was fun!  Thanks guys =)

Baby “W”

Filed under: newborn — msullivan @ 4:57 am


This little guy is the new kid on my block, well, actually the next block over.  His mommy and I met at a gymnastics class for our daughters a few years ago and discovered we lived right around the corner from eachother.



Congratulations – he is a doll!

Baby “S”

Here is a sneak peek for the parents of this adorable newborn. I love the one of her feet – normally I prefer b&w for shots like this but the color one just speaks to me.

baby "c"

Filed under: newborn — msullivan @ 4:35 pm

I had so much fun with this beautiful little bundle – all 6 pounds of her – she was so tiny! And this family was the very first to use a michelle sullivan photography gift certificate. Her cousin gave it to her as a shower gift.  I love this first shot – such a tender moment……..
