Boston Baby Photographer


The best part of being a Boston baby photographer is getting to snuggle my client's new babies (and then hand them back haha). I can't wait to create beautiful artwork with you and your family.


The Newborn Session Experience


Newborn sessions are done in my custom-designed studio in Dedham, MA. In the studio, you will have acces s to multiple gorgeous neutral set ups, props, and ideal natural lighting. I am here to help you with styling--I have loads of dresses and baby outfits to choose from in my client closet, and a guide for what to wear .


My Boston baby photographer sessions are family-centered, and include parent, sibling, and family poses, and shots of baby alone. While I have a workflow in mind, the session is “baby led.” This means I keep your baby as comfortable as possible and take cues from them. Every baby is different, and every session is a little different. Mostly, you’ll just be snuggling your little one with simple, comfortable, and flattering poses.


With 10+ years of experience as a Boston baby photographer, here are all my tips on how to prepare for your newborn session to make it a success!

After your session, I will send you a proofing gallery with 60+ partially edited images. At this point, you can purchase your collection and choose your images. My final edits will take up to 2 weeks.


Booking & scheduling process


The best time to book your newborn session is during your second trimester, but its never too late to get on my calendar. After you sign your contract and pay the booking fee, you'll officially have a newborn slot with me!


When baby arrives, we will pick a date and time for your session, ideally when baby is 2-3 weeks old. Boston baby photographer sessions are scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and last 1-2 hours.
