The purpose of my work is to give you an accurate snapshot of your life as it is right now—frozen in time for you with authentic photos that are true to the way you really look and feel. If you're here for family photography, I'll capture your kids' unique personalities so that you can reflect on their quirks together when they're older. If you're here for newborn photography, I will help you accurately capture the memories and little details from this period of time that is otherwise pretty blurry.

Boston area newborn and family photographer documenting authentic connections between littles and those who love them.

a snapshot of your life—as it is right now.

Boston Family Photographer

"Such an amazing experience. Bethany is so calm and professional, made us feel extremely at ease and you can see that in the pictures - beautiful light, beautiful moments, nothing posey or artificial about it. Super quick turn around for the pictures, super responsive to all questions and requests, really can't thank her enough for helping us capture such special memories. We will treasure these pictures for a very long time."

"beautiful light, beautiful moments, nothing posey or artificial about it."

"Bethany’s work is truly remarkable. She puts my children at ease - which is a hard task because it’s hard to have all three happy at once! Her beautiful photos are hung all over our house and are truly works of art! I’ve recommended her to many families and my friends all think the same thing I do - she’s the best!" 

"her photographs capture the essence of my family and we are so grateful."

"Beautiful pictures! Bethany has such a gift for making people feel comfortable! I have four children and she kept them smiling and cooperative, and that included a cranky 3 year old and a brand new baby! We love august + iris Photography!"

"Family photos with Bethany is really a wonderful experience! She is so patient and relaxed, which is critical with young children. You can tell she genuinely loves what she is doing! And after the session, she is quick and organized in getting the digitals ready for review. Thanks for an all-around top-notch experience!"

praise from kind-hearted clients

Sure, "just as you are" can still mean that I'll help with outfit coordination and planning a beautiful location for your shoot, but it also means that we're not focused on getting your littles to pose and smile at the camera. 

Perfection isn't the goal because perfection isn't real. The goal is capturing your honest connections with one another—the little in-between moments, the unique details of how you interact and laugh—a genuine glimpse at life right now. 

that's why my goal is to capture your family just as you are.

beauty can be found in ordinary moments, + magic can be found in the mess.

prioritizing authenticity over forced perfection, always.

real life, frozen in time.
