One of the best things about my job as a newborn and family photographer is that I get to meet so many incredible people. This mom learned to sew in her 30s and then started a thriving business selling patterns. Her parents traveled from the UK to help out and I love how we were able to include them in the session. While photographing them all together, the grandmother burst into tears of joy. It was such a beautiful moment.

I’m often asked when the best time is to take newborn photographs. While it is nice capturing the first few weeks of a baby’s life sometimes it just work out for a variety of reasons. Occasionally, I get to meet families a few months later and in this little guy’s case he was a two month baby when I came by for photographs. At this age, babies are more awake, have sustained eye contact and there is a little more to love.
I really love how simple and peaceful everything looks in this newborn session. Another example of a photography session with a two month old newborn can be found here.

Whenever I go into a home for a newborn photography session in Boston, I always ask questions. This is the best way for me to get to know families in the short amount of time I am with them. I’m always inspired by the people, their home and the light but I also want to capture the details of what life is like in these first few weeks. Even if your favorite spot to hang out isn’t in the best light, I do my best to try to document it in some way. When my son was a week old we all had trouble calming him down. My mom figured out this strange way of resting his body on her arm and his head in her hand. Moving forward, we referred to it as the “grandma” hold. There is not one photograph of this memory I have in my mind and I want to document those for other families.
Somewhat related, if you scroll down, you’ll see the dad laying on the couch with the baby. This “pose” in my mind will forever be known as the “TV pose.” In a lot of my sessions, dads say they hang out like this with the newborn. In chatting with one dad I was laughing when I told him how it came up a lot. He told me the remote is usually in the other hand and he hangs out like this while watching tv. It is so obvious to me now but we haven’t had a TV in our living room for years so I completely overlooked the connection.

As a Boston newborn photographer, you never know what space you’ll walk into or what the light will be like. I think it is why I love in-home newborn sessions so much. When I first arrive, I ask families to give me a tour of the house and then I need to quickly come up with a game plan. Interesting light and shadows present in one room might not be there in 30 minutes. In this family’s home, there were some dark wall colors that I used to emphasize the mood in the photographs. I’m always looking for elements that will make a family’s photos personalized.
If you make to the bottom, the last photograph makes me laugh. This family kept the toys really organized. While I was there the toddler managed to dump out every single bin, which is what toddlers do. So, obviously we needed to grab a photo in the created chaos.k
