Photos at home

Maternity Minishoots with Jess


At home, where you're comfortable.

Maternity sessions can be the most fun, relaxing, amazing way document your pregnancy. Lots of people opt to wait and do newborn photos after their baby arrives, but if a maternity session is something you're even slightly considering, one of my low-key, maternity minishoots is the way to go. We'll have so much fun, and you'll be so glad you did it.

In case you had any concerns, I'm fully vaxxed and boosted, and I always ask whether you'd like me to mask in your home. I'm also happy to test before I come see you -- your family's health and safety are of the utmost importance to me. We can also do your whole maternity session outdoors! So many options.

Are we getting ahead of ourselves? 

I know, I know, we're talking maternity photos. But before you know it, maybe we'll be thinking about pictures for a tiny new person? Here's a video about my style for newborn sessions.

Additional Options


My heirloom albums are the perfect way to preserve your images and look back on your maternity photos for years to come.  You can select any photos you'd like from your session and I will design layouts for you in a custom coffeetable album. The photos are printed on thick, cardstock pages. If you'd like a book made combining photos from multiple photoshoots we take over your baby's first year, consider my Baby's First Year Package. Additional copies of my albums are $175. 



Choose 4x6, 5x7, 8x10 and larger mounted prints after your maternity session - they make great gifts for everyone who loves anticipating your baby's arrival. 

$26 - $48


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 $72


Do you have a little one at home that you'd like to highlight with some photos of their own? Consider one of my 20 minute Messy Minishoots at home, developed with 9-18 months old babies in mind (but fine for any age kiddo who likes to get messy and then get cleaned up in a tubby!)

Want to think about scheduling a session after your baby arrives? I consider "newborn sessions" anything between 0-4 months of age. Let's get something on the calendar!

Want to print your own copies of your favorite images to give as gifts to the people who love you and love anticipating this sweet new babe? JPGs are included if you pay the All Inclusive rate listed above, or you can choose to pay a la carte for a few favorites. 

$75 each (or $500 for all after a maternity minishoot)

Click the link below to request access to a full maternity minishoot gallery. An email window will pop up - just let me know a bit about your family (will your new baby have any older siblings, for example, and how old are they?) so I can send you a gallery that's closest to what you're looking for.

About Jess McDaniel

I'm a family photographer, and because I've been doing it so long I've naturally started doing senior photos, too. (My first babies from the early days of Boston Baby Photos are all booking their senior photoshoots now, 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.

Not interested in maternity photos, but maybe you'll consider a newborn session, or one of my messy minishoots at home, or my minishoots in the Public Garden for older kiddos? I'd love to chat with you!
