I *love* being a Boston newborn family photographer. I love it more than my favorite beach on a just-almost-summer June day and I love it more than homemade peanut butter cookies.
I love it so much that I left a thriving corporate career (and its predictable salary) years ago to live a life fulfilled by my passion: using my training, skills and talent to capture images of babies, children, parents and families that go well beyond your standard pose-and-smile-then-point-and-click.
And I’m living that dream.
As a Boston newborn family photographer, every week I spend hours planning for, taking and preparing beautiful images of the connection between parents and their newborn, siblings, grandparents and their grandchildren. Every single image aims to capture the relationships between each person, the individual connections and the emotions of that very moment. Every single session is about telling the story of your family on that very day of that year.
Why? Because, to me, those relationships and those moments are the reason you’re investing in professional photographs. You’re looking to capture the excitement, the connection, and the love that’s effervescent in your family, right? You’re looking for someone you can trust to notice those unspoken and unstaged moments.
This is what I do. I connect the fabric of your family with the output of my camera: an image. An image that, I hope, becomes a treasure, whether you hang it on a wall, frame it for a desk, print it on a card or display it in a gorgeous album. Maybe you’ll simply keep it in your digital photo library. If you look at it with pure joy, because it brings you back to that glorious moment when your family was newer, younger, smaller, sillier – whatever it is – I have done my job.
See these images that I chose below. Fantastic, loving, amazing families. You can feel their bond in these images. No posing required.
Boston Newborn Family Photographer
Maybe this is your first time hiring a professional photographer. Many people don’t know how much it costs, and that’s understandable. Your friend may be posting pretty images on social media. I wish I could tell you it’s a cheap investment, like a trendy pleather handbag on the sale rack.
Your friend may have a knack with her iPhone. She may have a friend who enjoys photography as a hobby and took some solid snaps. She may have gone to the one-size-fits-all company at the local mall.
I am a professional photographer and – as with most other industries where there are novices, middle-of-the-road quality, and skilled talent – you’ll get what you pay for when you hire me.
Some may be very, very artistic, like these:
Some may feel like sneak peeks on your children in their amazingly sweet sibling moments, like these from this family session:
Others may elicit pure joy, like these:
And some may transform a zooming moment into a memory now seared in your brain, partly because we were together in the right place, at that very moment.
Like when this almost-toddler took her first step:
Or when this father was about to be deployed to Afghanistan, and these images had to be taken just before he left:
Or when this couple welcomed twins and were still cheerful after weeks without sleep:
Or when this new mom, unable to carry her baby due to cancer treatment, welcomed her daughter thanks to a wonderful surrogate:
I am not a novice photographer. I’m not offering cliche images in batches. Your photos will not be staged or look like everyone else’s.
When you hire me, you are investing in images that will, indeed, last a lifetime. You’ll have a myriad of photos that you love. I hope you’ll display them in your home where you’ll see them every day in passing. Sometimes you’ll stop. I know you’ll smile and remember that very day and your family as it was during that moment in time. Sometimes you’ll pass it by and not notice, but it’s there. And, like many clients, you’ll likely call me again for an updated session. Because they were worth it.
Maybe you’ll have an album. Your children will look at it as they age, I promise. Let them see themselves years ago, when they were small. They won’t remember that random day, but the images will show them the love you shared with the funny lady who followed you with a camera.
I encourage you to invest in images that evoke emotions that make you choke with joy. It will be worth it.
I know how to capture those images because I have years of training and experience. I’ve photographed hundreds of families and I have mastered how to use light to create gorgeous images on even the worst of days. I don’t get distracted by weather or camera settings, because it’s all ingrained in my brain like brushing my teeth (which I do really well, too, by the way).
My skills as a professional photographer allow me to spend your session doing what matters most: finding and photographing the connection within your family. This is what you are paying for.
Your family’s moments and relationships are worth it. I’m worth it. Let’s work together to make the investment worth it.
