Hi, I’m Whitney!

Welcome to Whitney O'Brien Photography! I'm Whitney.

2017 was a big year for me: I married my best friend, went on our 3 week honeymoon through 4 countries in Europe, and quit my day job to run my photography business full time! After 5 years of side hustle nights and weekends, I'm so happy to finally focus on my dream job full time. I seriously have the best job in the world.

When I'm not photographing babies and families, I spend my free time trying new local restaurants, sampling beer flights at breweries, or snuggling my puppy, Harper. On any given day, you may find me eating burritos from Los Amigos, shopping at REI in Fenway, or kayaking on the Charles with friends. I am also obsessed with traveling, whether we're exploring a new European city, hiking the National Parks, enjoying a quick weekend getaway. 

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 5 years of photographing babies, I can't imagine doing anything else!
