Capturing Life, Love, and Light! 

Thank you for your interest in my custom family photography sessions! I photograph families at all stages in life: newly engaged couples, pregnancy, young parents with babies & toddlers, parents with teenagers as well as three generation sessions with grandparents, adult children, and grandchildren. Each family has a different vision for their photos. Some clients want traditional portraiture and others want more of a lifestyle session that captures their little ones at play. When you book my photography service, we will custom tailor the session to accommodate your family. I'll help guide you through the entire process from beginning to end including selecting the perfect session location, discussing what to wear...we will work together on every detail! During the session, I'll give you verbal assistance on posing techniques that feel natural and help everyone look great. After the session, I will be available by phone or email if you need help ordering your photo products or just want some tips on creating picture wall art vignettes with your portraits.

Gorgeous Nature Session Backdrops

There are SO many beautiful outdoor portrait locations in eastern Massachusetts!

As a Boston portrait photographer, I have traveled to some neat spots to photograph clients including beaches, college campuses, sunflower fields, flower gardens, city streets & parks, yacht clubs etc. I captured the candid photo below during a lifestyle photoshoot at Colby Farm in Newbury, MA.

Where would you like your portrait session to take place? If you need some inspiration, visit my 20 Outdoor Locations for Portrait Photoshoots page. It talks about different session locations options in Boston, on the North + South Shore, MetroWest and Cape Cod. If you don't feel like traveling, outdoor photo sessions can take place at your home, in your yard or on the front steps!

"We met Jennifer to take our family Christmas pictures and we could have not been happier!! She was fun, creative, patient, and great with the kids. Her prices are very reasonable and her turnaround time was great. The pictures are fabulous and I have already given her name as a reference! You will not be disappointed!" - Tara B.  Visit my kind words page to view more testimonials.



Vibrant Modern Portraits + Lifestyle Photos

My documentary photography style is a creative mix of candid and traditional portraiture. I love "true life" color portraits that are not overly processed and the timeless feel of black and whites. Visit my family photo gallery to view more images.
