Boston Family Photographer


We really have tons of fun during these Boston family photographer shoots. I play with you and your kids to capture genuine smiles and emotions. I loosely pose you and give you some general direction, but overall I have you snuggle and tickle and play with your kids.


I will get individual shots of each child, shots with each parent, and lots of the whole family. I love getting a variety with everyone smiling and looking at the camera, as well as tons of less posed shots where you’re just having fun.


You can expect me to run over to you to tickle tiny toes, and run backwards to catch the reaction. Poop jokes and silly faces--anything to get a real smile. No "say cheese" faces here.


After 10+ years of experience as a Boston family photographer, I am happy to share all my tips on having a successful family session.

Boston Family Photographer Details


When and where


Boston family photographer sessions are done outdoors in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. My favorite location is the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain and Roslindale, only a 15 minute drive from downtown Boston. During the winter, family sessions can also be done in my gorgeous studio in Dedham.


The Fall is my busiest time of year, so space is very limited. I do offer some weekend availability, but most of my sessions are done on weekdays, 90 minutes before sunset.


Booking your session


I'd love to work with you and be your Boston family photographer, year after year. If you're ready to get on my schedule, send me a message today.
