Massachusetts Children's Photography

From toddlers to teenagers, children always remind us just how fast life can go! Whether you’re creating a memento for loved ones, a child, tween, or teen modeling portfolio, sibling or best friend portraits, or simply a keepsake from a particular point in your child’s life, I’m happy to help. Although these sessions are mainly child-focused, we always welcome and encourage family members to participate. 

Looking for a session that focuses on the connection between you and your loved ones? I open up a limited number of sessions each fall to capture the special bond between you and your family. Please contact me to chat about the schedule and booking options, or head on over to the blog to view a few of my favorite family sessions.

Most Popular Sessions

These are a few of the most popular options available to you. I am also happy to photograph babies and young children in their home, where many of them are most comfortable, or join you at any great indoor location that suits your needs.

The perfect way to let your child's personality shine, I absolutely love outdoor sessions! We can choose any location, from the beach or a local park to your own backyard. These sessions are often scheduled early morning or in the evening.

In the Studio

Great for a clean and classic look, I keep my studio sessions simple and backgrounds minimalistic to allow your child to be the main focus of the photos. Great as a standalone session or as an add-on to an outdoor session.

Headshots + Branding

Best for aspiring and professional youth models and actors, these sessions are designed to capture anything from an updated headshot to a full portfolio with multiple looks. Hair and makeup services available by request.


Child, tween, and teen sessions can take place either at a scenic outdoor location, in my studio, or in your home. Most of my sessions take place in the Greater Boston Area including Boston, Somerville, Lowell, Andover, Burlington, Cambridge, Boston, Chelmsford, Billerica, Methuen, and Tewksbury, MA. I am also available for travel throughout New England and New York. Besides Massachusetts, my clients often come from such regions as New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New York City, NY. Contact me to learn more!
