Received this amazing note from Josi! Can’t believe Stefania is so grown up!!! Had to share….
We decided when our daughter was 2 years old to look for a “real” professional photographer. Highly recommended by a trusted co-worker, we drove down to East Brookfield from Littleton, MA, convincing ourselves on the long drive down with a 2 year old, this would be the only portrait we’d do, since it was over an hour drive from home. Over the river and through the woods, but oh so worth it when we saw the slide presentation of our beautiful 2 year old, capturing all of her facial expressions, from frowns to giggles to pensive to playful! And how do you pick just one! Thank you to Kristen for helping us sort through them! I still want them all!
Well, we have come back to East Brookfield every year, sometimes twice a year, and sometimes more since that first trip. We’ve done Birthday, Christmas, Bunnies, Chicks, Special Grandmothers, First Communion, Sweet 16 and now, Senior Portraits. And each time we came back because Rich is THE best portrait photographer and it is so worth the trip. He even has cookies waiting for us, knowing how much we love his “home baked” cookies and in the winter, the warm mulled apple cider! Everyone is relaxed and at ease, no pressure, just welcoming and inclusive of the children and the parents. With younger children, he sings Disney tunes off key and just brings out the best expressions, giggles, and smiles. With older, jaded teens he speaks their language, gets goofy, pretends he doesn’t really get it, making them laugh and of course, roll their eyes! His antics serve a purpose, capturing the essence of the child. We trust his judgment and his creativity every time, and are never disappointed. We just finished Senior Portraits and they were amazing, truly captured our daughter’s personality.
Thank you for capturing the true essence and unique personality of our daughter every step of the way, every year, from a toddler in a tiara and tutu to a young woman dreaming of her future.
Thank you Rich and Kristen, you rock!!
See you soon!

We are Celebrating 30 Years!!!
On October 1, 1986, we officially opened our studio and we never could of imagined the amazing people and places we would experience in our daily happenings here at Barnes Portrait Design.
Just the other day, a great client we have worked with since the beginning, who has had having children, her family, and now her grandchildren photographed, reminded me that she came because of the first promotion we ever did; It was a Family Portrait Special at a very beautiful local park, which we titled “A Day in the Park “. She remembered that the session fee was just $30. Laughing, she said ” We had no idea if you were even any good, but we figured for $30 what do we have to loose!” She then proudly went on to tell us that that very family portrait is still the centerpiece of her living room. That was so great to hear!
That got us thinking;
Why couldn’t we do the same thing all over again?
So that’s what we are going to do!
We have been able to set aside a few weekend days in the next couple of weeks (including Sundays)!
And to Celebrate 30 Amazing Years,
the session fee will be just $30 (just like in 1986)!
There will also be Special Packages & Collections all backed up with
the same quality that has helped us grow over three decades.
Call to Schedule Before the Leaves Are Gone!

We had an awesome day last Friday and Saturday photographing kids with baby bunnies!
What a wide range of ages we had! Some kids loving the bunnies and others not so sure! This year’s
bunnies are some of the sweetest, most gentle we have ever have and SO SOFT!
After seeing Kiana with them, being our bunny handler so that they are used to kids, I have a feeling we will
be gaining some new pets at our house!!
Above is this year’s background! There are still a few spots left this Saturday, April 2nd! Call if you are interested in a session! It’s only $25 and worth the fun we have! There are no minimum purchases, just lots of amazing portraits of your kids to choose from!
