Social Distancing Outdoor Minishoots

Simplify, simplify, simplify.

All my photoshoots are the same for 2021 - whether you have a new baby or a senior in high school, my sessions are always 20 minutes in your outdoor space. 

I'd love to tell you more.

Here's some more info...

I made this video last summer to explain my new normal.

What about tiny babies? How on earth do I take pictures of babies when they're mere days old when the weather in New England can be so extreme? I'd be happy to tell you all about it. Suburban backyards and downtown Boston roofdecks in the cold of January and the heat of July, it's all been done. Speed is my superpower. I'd love to show you entire gallery examples for particular ages, just ask.

How much does it cost?

They're the same price as my 20 minute Public Garden Minishoots: $275. The bonus is that I come to you, instead of you coming to me. If you want to buy all the JPGs afterwards, lots of people choose to do that for $500 more. Here are the different options for packages.

My heirloom albums are the perfect way to preserve your images and enjoy them for generations. For $295, you can select any photos you'd like from your session and I will lay them out in a coffeetable album. The photos are printed on both sides of the pages inside the book, like a magazine, (but with thick, cardstock pages). Additional copies are $175. Let me know if you'd like to see a video all about my coffeetable albums!



I've adjusted my most popular Baby's First Year package for Covid-times. What used to be $1200 for three sessions + a coffeetable album is now only $900, since the sessions are all minishoots outdoors in 2021. (Or if you know you're an "own all the JPGs" kind of person, this package of three photoshoots + a coffeetable album + all the JPGs is $2400.)

Lots more info is here.



My favorite hanging option these days is metal prints - they match every decor and their color saturation and wow-factor (they float about 1" off the wall!) are off the charts. 

Starting at $64


Want to share your images? 
Get your custom mobile app so you can share everywhere you go, in person, and to social media. If you opt to go with the "Buy the files" option after your session (for $500) I'll make you a mobile app on request.

$500 (or free anytime you buy all your JPG files)


There is no way to preserve your memories like a printed photo but we know that sometimes there might be a project you'd like to create on your own. 

$75 each (or $500 for all)

About Jess McDaniel

I'm a baby photographer, and because I've been doing it so long I've naturally become a family photographer, too. (My first babies from the early days of Boston Baby Photos are booking their senior photoshoots this year, and nothing makes me happier.)

I travel anywhere within an hour of Boston for photoshoots. Outside of photography, I  truly love The Container Store, salty food and my husband and daughters. And not necessarily in that order.
