lifestyle Family photography in Boston and Beyond

Time speeds up when you became a parent. I often find myself wishing I could bottle up "this giggle" or "that expression," and maybe you do, too. You can't turn back time, but together we can freeze this moment in a photograph that you can look back at 10, 20, 40 years from now, only to feel that same emotion and connection you felt when I snapped that photo.

I don't believe in forcing my clients to perform for the camera, because I celebrate real love, real joy, and real emotion in the season you're in. I firmly believe that you deserve to have images of the raw, intimate moments you share with your family to look back on when the day comes for your little ones leave the nest.

As your Greater Boston family photographer, I will also help you make art out of your images so that when you're looking at that beautiful portrait on your wall 18 years from now, you'll be taken right back to the place it all started. I'd be delighted to capture the connection you share with your family so that you can not only tell, but show your children and grandchildren your (and their) story.

To learn more about doing a family session with me, please take a look at the resources below and fill out the contact form if you feel we could be a good match!


You prioritize images that capture natural connection over posed, everyone-smiling-at-the-camera photos.


You don't want stiff, awkward posing or a photographer that barks instruction at you throughout your whole session.


You want beautiful images that showcase your connection authentically, chaos and all.

Are we a good fit?

Family Session

"Hannah did the impossible and made two older teenagers and their reluctant, stressed and sometimes self-conscious mom look like they were enjoying themselves on a perfect beach day. I was worried about how I would look because I am a larger person, I have a limited choice of clothes, and my hair wasn't perfect. She was still able to get us laughing and take beautiful shots. I can genuinely say she made it fun.  And as you can see the pictures show it!"

Maternity and Family Sessions

"Hannah was amazing from the start! Great communication about outfits/location, so kind and patient with my young kiddos, went above and beyond to make them giggle and enjoy the time we spent taking photos, provided a sneak peak in only a few days, and blew my mind with the most gorgeous album of photos that we will treasure forever. We will absolutely take photos with her again!"

Maternity, Newborn, Milestone, and Family Sessions

"Gosh, I wish we could give a million stars.  She has captured our growing family from big round maternity bellies, to a toddler holding his newborn brothers hand. Every major milestone in our life has been made into a memory through Hannah’s work. I usually cry for about 10 minutes after we receive our gallery because of her detail. I cherish her work, and I am thankful that she has captured so many life stages. She even loves our chaotic dog and welcomes his crazy floof into all of our memories. (...) Her personality is what allows for her photos to reveal a families full authentic self. I am amazed at how well she connects with her clients, and I’m thankful to have a photographer who has always recognized our uniqueness and makes sure that it’s fully captured."

Newborn Session

"Hannah is an ideal photographer for young families. She goes out of her way to make her clients feel comfortable and know what to expect from their sessions. She has a calming way about her and a special talent for capturing bits of calm on camera when life with little ones often looks more like chaos. We loved having the ability to do our newborn / family session in the comfort of our home, the ability to use her client closet for photo worthy outfits, and her flexible way of working with our toddler. We got our gallery back quickly and instantly knew it was worth every penny. Our photos are beautiful memories of a fleeting stage of life and we would absolutely work with Hannah again!"

from my clients:


You deserve a Boston family photographer who is the perfect fit for your family's story and vision. I'd love to chat with you for 15-20 minutes to make sure that my approach is the right fit before we book. If I'm not, I'll happily refer to my list of other awesome photographers!

Once we've determined that I'm the right fit for your family photography session (yay!), I will send you a contract to sign, which you will return to me with a retainer, and your session will be officially on the books!

There are plenty of things that are stressful about being a parent, but your family session shouldn't be one of them. Upon booking, I will send you a guide that will help you prepare for our session and a questionnaire so that I can tailor your session to your family. I will also check in along the way to answer any questions that may arise.

Throughout your session, I will give you some guidance and light direction on positioning, so you won’t have to worry about whether or not your best angle is toward the camera. From there, I will focus on prompting your family to interact, because that's how I capture your love for one another. We will get some beautiful whole-family portraits, but my sessions are relaxed, peaceful, and focused on the "real"—I don't believe in performing for the camera, so I tend to keep everything pretty natural.

About 3 weeks after your session, you'll receive a slideshow of your images. Gather your family together in the comfort of your own home to relive all the moments and marvel at the beauty of the family you've lovingly made. Only after you've seen the slideshow will you choose a collection, each of which includes a certain number of digital images and a certain amount of print credit for you to use in your online gallery store. Purchase exactly what you love, and absolutely nothing that you don't!
