I offer both in home and studio newborn photo sessions.
The advantages of a studio session? Wardrobe for mom. Lots of natural light. Simple, neutral backgrounds and bedding. No need to get the house ready. There is room for extended family and dogs are welcome. I am centrally located in the Back Bay, within walking distance or a short drive of the South End, Fenway, Beacon Hill, Cambridge, Brookline and Jamaica Plain.
The advantages of an in home session? No need to navigate packing up and getting out of the house with a newborn. Easier on moms who may be having a tougher recovery physically. Allows us to include your nursery and other areas of your home in your photos. I bring everything needed to photograph baby to your home!
As a first time parent it is hard to anticipate what the first few weeks at home with a newborn will look like so when you book a session with me you do not need to make a final decision on the location of your session until after your baby arrives.
Considering an in home newborn session but not sure what to expect? Below is an example of a recent session.
In this case Mom was planning on a studio session but ended up having some medical complications and opting for an in home session.
Baby girl did not have a nursery set up yet, but we are able to use a simple white wall and window in the home along with the white blanket and headbands I brought to the home to create simple classic newborn and family photos.
Interested in booking a newborn photo session in the Boston area? Sessions are tentatively scheduled for two weeks following your due date with an exact date and time finalized after baby arrives.

These are beautiful, Beth! I would have thought they were a studio session: it’s so clean and bright like your studio! How wonderful you could be flexible and adapt to provide the studio look they wanted even in their in-home session.
Congratulations to the new parents on their beautiful bundle of enjoy!
Wow Beth, those are amazing! Not only the variety but your control of that light is incredible. wow
The simplicity is divine. Lovely family.
You’d never know these were taken at the client’s home. I photograph newborns at home all the time, but I do include their unique home setting. Great job!
