Boston Newborn Photographer - Whitney O'Brien

Hi, I'm Whitney, Boston Newborn Photographer


I have been a Boston newborn photographer for over a decade, and I am passionate about working with amazing people to create gorgeous artwork. There is no bigger change in your life than bringing a baby into your family, and I am obsessed with documenting these moments through maternity and newborn sessions. Being a Boston newborn photographer is a dream come true.


I started this business before I had kids, and completely changed my newborn photography style.


After I had my own baby, I realized that the images I cherished the most were the ones that I was in too! I decided to shift my photographic style away from highly posed newborns only with a handful of parent shots to family-centric sessions. During your newborn photo session with me, you will be snuggling your baby and holding them in natural poses 90% of the time. We'll get a few shots of baby alone, but the focus is on the whole family.


What makes me different?


I'm all about providing you with a luxury experience. Not only will you walk away from your session knowing that we created beautiful artwork together, you'll also have a new mama friend.

Get to know my work

Let's make gorgeous memories together.


My style as a Boston newborn photographer can be summed up as natural, family-centered, and timeless.


Whether we're in my Dedham studio, your home, or at a local Boston park, my goal is to use beautiful lighting, create genuine emotion, and make you and your family shine. As a Boston newborn photographer, I love neutral colors and simple backdrops that allow us to keep the focus on what matters--your family!


I'll guide you into flattering poses, play with your kiddos, and capture the typical "holiday card" shots, as well as the in between moments--which are often your favorites! As a Boston newborn photographer, I want to help you look natural, and like the best version of yourselves.


My goal is to make you feel comfortable and create memories with you that you will want to share and hang on your wall.

My Studio

Dedham, MA


The perfect backdrop for your indoor session, my studio is located in Dedham, MA. With a full wall of giant windows streaming soft natural light, I designed the studio backdrops to be simple and timeless to keep the focus on you and your family.


You'll find a bed set up with textured cream and tan colored bedding and pillows, perfect for snuggling up with baby, sitting together as a family, and a few of baby alone. I had a movable wall custom built to give another two background options with a few different chairs and accessories. This and the full wall of windows offer a perfect backdrop for standing poses.


The best part about a photo studio: you don't have to worry about cleaning your house or even finishing baby's nursery.


Just show up to my 1,200 sqft Boston studio in your sweats and you'll find a rack of dresses, endless outfit options for baby, and simple neutral backdrop set ups.


The perfect outfit


I know stressful it is to find the right outfits for everyone, and buying something new just for a photoshoot isn't always doable.


As part of my luxury experience, I am happy to help you choose an outfit from my client closet. Neutral colors, pretty textures, and a range of sizes are all available at no additional fee. In addition to outfits for mom, I have a huge rack of clothes for baby, ranging in sizes from preemie to 12 months. All of my client closet pieces are neutral, simple, and timeless.


Show up in your sweats and we'll pick a dress and style everyone else around you!






Ready to talk?


I am so excited to work with you! I take a limited number of newborn, maternity, and family photo sessions each month, so please contact me to get on my calendar as soon as possible.


I cannot wait to hear from you!
