Mom empowerment sessions

Owning your mama power.

Because you're beautiful. And you deserve this.

Let's honor YOU. 

Let's just take a beat, and spend some time paying attention to who you are as a person, instead of who you are as a parent

I also know having a photoshoot booked can be a great incentive to be your best self and stick to all those goals we like to set for ourselves as moms. We'll go on a walk around your neighborhood or your yard or around your house together and I'll snap photos of your gorgeous self as we chat about the things that inspire you -- the things that make you feel alive right now. 

I only offer Mom Empowerment sessions in April and May each year.

Now taking orders for Spring 2022 Gift Cards. Order one here.

Included & A La Carte Options


I want to be sure these photos live forever, so I'm printing every mama a 6.5" x 6.5" booklet containing all 20 final images from their mom empowerment session and mailing it out a week or two after our session. Stash it in your sock drawer afterwards if you must, but I want you to have something physical to touch and hold so you can remember how perfect you are RIGHT NOW.



Choose 4x6, 5x7, 8x10 and larger mounted prints after your mom empowerment session - they make great gifts for anyone who loves you. 

$18 - $36


Want to share your images? I'll make you a custom mobile app with eight of your gorgeous mom empowerment photos after your session so you can share your photos everywhere you go, in person, and to social media. Want the photos in your app without the watermark at the bottom? I'm also happy to make you a mobile app with no watermarks using any of the JPGs you buy after your session!



Need a high res JPG for your professional headshot? Want to print copies of your favorite photos to give as gifts to the people who love you? Buying individual JPG files (or all of them) is sometimes the easiest way.

$75 each (or $500 for all after a mom empowerment session, or $750 for all after an upgraded session)

Book Reveal

Here's a Mom Empowerment Booklet reveal I did live from my car as I waited for my dental appointment. Please forgive for the terrible quality video; I was streaming from my phone.

Ready to go for it?

Empowerment is such a wonderful holiday gift for yourself or another mama you love.

About Jess McDaniel

I'm a family photographer, but I'm also a mom. I've been a photographer for a long time (my first babies from the early days of Boston Baby Photos are all booking their senior photoshoots now), and I know as well as any mama out there how hard it is to take a few minutes to pay attention to ourselves these days. I launched my Who I Am Project a few years ago to empower 10-12 year old girls, and while that's been put on hold due to the pandemic, I decided to do some work empowering moms - because goodness knows we need it.

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.
