Let's tell YOUR story, the welcoming of your little one...
Birth is such a unique time in your life…
It’s the welcoming of a new life into this world, into YOUR world. You can compare it to a wedding! It's something unknown, a new milestone, a new path, a new type of joy…
As birthing mom’s we forget how much support we had, how we looked (even if we were not looking our best), what was going behind the scenes, the details in the home/hospital, your reaction to when you saw your baby for the first time, your partners unconditional love towards you for being SO STRONG! Having a photographer during this important moment is all about those moments.
Birth photography allows you to keep this specific moment tangible and alive for years to come!
I understand you completely, this is why I always say you can consider me a fly on the wall. I am respectful of your space during your labor and birth and will stay out of the way of providers for them to do their work.
Allow me the opportunity to capture this AMAZING and SPECIAL moment in your life. The welcoming of your little one! Believe me, IT IS WORTH IT!

Let's capture those little details of our newborns in the comfort of your own home. They grow so quickly and at times we forget how they looked during the first few days in earth. Document how you spent those days with the little one, include the sibling, the fur baby (we love fur babies), and remember these days for life! We provide a variety of images that include candid and lifestyle, as well as light posing without the need of leaving your home.
This type of session is extra special as it is done while baby is younger than 48 hours. These are done at the hospital or at home. We aim to capture the emotions of those first hours, the siblings meeting their baby for the first time and family meeting the new additions. This session is all about the raw emotions and details of our little one when they are completely new.
All Newborn Sessions Include:

HERE ARE SOME OF THE NICE WORDS THAT WE’VE RECEIVED FROM THEM.
"I can't boast enough about Shirley and how great of a job she did with my birth photography. She took breathtakingly amazing photos of my baby that I will cherish forever. When I first considered having a birth photography session I was really nervous at how it would be with someone in the room but Shirley was literally just a fly on the wall for the pictures and during my labor she was a great extra support person in addition to my boyfriend. I would highly recommend her services to anyone considering!" - Nicole M.
"I found Shirley while during a quick online search for maternity photographers in the greater Boston area. I instantly fell in love with her images. I sent her an inquiry and she was so quick to respond, which was fantastic. She answered all of my questions and provided her recommendations for locations that were close to my home. I ended up picking out World’s End for our location and boy was she a trooper. I didn’t realize the park closed at a certain time and after walking(about a 15 mins walk in 80 degree weather with all of her equipment) to the area we wanted to shoot we had less then an hour to take pictures.
She hustled and took as many pictures as possible and was so super understanding. She listened to our requests and ideas. She even stayed a little later to take some additional images even though the park was closing. We made it out of the park just in time and the images came out wonderfully. I even asked if it were possible to get one of my images to be able to display it at my baby shower and though she didn’t make any promises she got it to me right on time.
Also, I think it’s a plus that she has maternity gowns/ accessories for the mom to be as these are very expensive to purchase for one day.
All and all I would highly recommend Shirley. She is super sweet, accommodating, reasonably priced, responsive, talented, and most importantly has a true passion for capturing such a precious time in a woman’s/family’s life." - Marlie C.
"Loved working with Shirley for my maternity photos of our first son! They turned out amazing and great choice of location - so happy we were able to sneak in a session before he was born. She is very flexible, professional, and easy to contact and get a hold of - highly would recommend to anyone that needs maternity photos in the Boston area!" - Liz P.
