Your Boston Newborn Photographer


I still remember the day I could no longer feel my son's soft spot. I blinked, and suddenly I could hear my newborn baby's tiny little feet pitter-pattering down the hall. The first few days and  months weren't easy, but I still miss them.

Truthfully, I regret not being in more photos in that newborn period. I was tired. I didn't like how my postpartum self looked. I had plenty of excuses. But now he's 3, and I can't go back and take more photos of holding him on my chest. I'm thankful that one of my friends talked me into doing a session with a newborn photographer, because those are some of the only photos I have that show our connection in his first year.

I firmly believe that you deserve to have images of the raw, intimate moments you share with your newborn to look back on when that day comes for you. 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.

As your Greater Boston newborn photographer, I will focus on the connection you as a family share with your new child. I'll capture the precious moments and newborn details that are much too fleeting 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: in your arms.

No one prepares you for how quickly the newborn period passes. Their tiny feet, their button nose, and their little hands are gone before the sleep-deprivation fog lifts.

Newborn photographer in Boston and beyond

Having photographed quite a few newborn sessions over time, I've come to realize that every family has different needs and preferences, which means that I can't be the perfect fit for every single one. That’s why I prefer to connect over a brief phone call (10 to 20 minutes max) before onboarding clients, just to make sure that I can provide exactly what you're looking for. There's no pressure, and it's not a test. You deserve the very best experience, and I'm here to make sure that you get it, whether it's with me or not.

We Connect

Once we've determined that I'm the right fit for your newborn 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!

We Connect

There are plenty of things that are stressful about becoming a parent (or welcoming siblings), but your newborn session shouldn't be one of them. Upon booking, I will send you a guide that will help you prepare for your session, as well as 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 and help you plan your outfits. I offer the use of my client closet to all clients, so if you're worried about finding something that photographs well, I've got you covered. I have dresses sized XS-XXL as well as several options for newborns up to 3 months.

Session Preparation

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. More than likely, your newborn session will be full of baby snuggles. I tend to snap lots of candids, and if a prompt seems a little silly or awkward, it's probably meant to make you laugh. We will get some beautiful whole-family portraits, but my sessions are relaxed and focused on the "real"—I don't believe in performing for the camera, so I tend to keep everything pretty natural. My emphasis is always on connection above all else.

During the Session

After the Session

You can expect your gallery of watermarked images to be delivered via email about 3-4 weeks after your session along with a customized album design. I intentionally don't force clients into choosing what collection they want before they see the images because I only want you to purchase what you fall in love with and nothing you don't! Once you've had the chance to view your images and choose a collection, you’ll be able to download your choice of high-resolution images straight from your gallery and/or purchase additional images. In addition to working with you to perfect your album (if you decide on a collection that includes one), I can help you visualize what a canvas or gallery wall collection would look like on your wall so that you and your child can enjoy the images we capture every day as they continue to grow!

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


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


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

"Hannah has the best personality to handle a crazy family (three kids, two who are 6 & 7 and a newborn!) and still capture so many beautiful moments. ... We are genuinely so thankful for her expertise and guidance through the whole process, and for helping us feel comfortable. My husband does not love having photos taken and he left complimenting her so highly!"

"Gosh, I wish we could give a million stars. Every major milestone in our life has been made into a memory through Hannah’s work.

I’m thankful to have a photographer who has always recognized our uniqueness and makes sure that it’s fully captured."

I get it! I have heard this over and over; in fact, most of my clients tell me this. The "secret" to not looking awkward is not FEELING awkward. I will guide you into positions that flatter you and prompt interaction so that you don't need to fake a smile or stand around wondering what to do.
