Hi, I’m Whitney!

Photographer | Hiker | Stargazer | Baby Whisperer | Coffee Addict

Welcome to Whitney O'Brien Photography! I'm Whitney. While I'm not photographing babies and families, I'm spending my free time hiking around national parks, sampling beer flights at breweries, or drinking loads of coffee. I love wandering around Boston with my husband, hanging out with my parents at the cape, or playing with my neighbor's dog Oakley. I am also obsessed with photographing the stars, beautiful lakes and mountains, or architecture in cities. On any given day, you may find me eating burritos from Los Amigos, drinking on the roofdeck at the Seaport Legal Seafoods, shopping at REI in Fenway, or kayaking on the Charles with friends. 

My photography journey

I found my love for photography in college, where I used my father's completely manual film camera (a Canon AE-1 that HE used in college) and learned darkroom processing techniques and studied all forms of Studio Art and Art History to receive my Bachelors degree.

After school, I photographed weddings here and there, but found my true passion for photographing babies after one of my good friends asked me to photograph her newborn son. After years of photographing babies, I can't imagine doing anything else!
