About Best Boston Newborn Photographer

Hi, I'm Whitney,
Best Boston Newborn Photographer


A little bit about me: I majored in photography in college and turned that degree into...a job in marketing! I spent many years working in corporate marketing before a friend asked me to take pictures of her newborn son. After that first session, I fell in love with photographing babies and started this business. I finally took the leap in 2017 and quit my 9-5 to do photography full-time, and I can safely say its the best job ever. My goals are to give all my clients a luxury experience, and to be the best Boston newborn photographer possible.


My husband and I moved from West Roxbury to Roslindale in 2018 and we love the sense of community that we get while still being part of the city of Boston. We love that we can walk almost everywhere and can support so many unique local businesses.


We have two little boys, and they are (sometimes) cooperative models for me. I take photos of them everyday with my big camera, because I know how important the everyday moments are, and they really do grow too quickly. If you live in the neighborhood, you've probably seen me around walking our puppy at the Arboretum, or chasing the kids at the Roslindale farmer's market or one of the local playgrounds in West Roxbury.


My studio in Dedham is my dream space, what I've been working towards since I photographed that first baby a decade ago. I feel so fortunate to welcome my clients into my second home and get to feel like part of the family for the few hours we spend together.


Thanks for visiting and I hope to work with you and be the best Boston newborn photographer for you!
