North Shore Boston newborn photos

How to Newborn Session (+ guinea pigs)


These North Shore Boston newborn photos demonstrate exactly what’s needed for a newborn session.

1: Have a baby

2: Love that baby

3: Hire a photographer to come and document you loving your baby.


It is really that simple. The beauty of an at home newborn session is that you get to be you, in your dwelling, as your family unit. And just loving each other and this new family you created is more than enough for newborn pictures!

I love a sleepy squishy solo posed newborn babe as much as the next person, but there’s something so true and special about these photos, it was truly magical to watch. And then when the guinea pigs came out to visit, I lost it ?

PS – You may remember these lovely parents from their Adair Inn Wedding! When they reached out for a baby’s first-year package I was beyond excited for their news and will be updating these family photos in a few more weeks!
