Photos at home

Newborn Sessions with Jess

At home, where your baby is most comfortable.

I've been a baby photographer for a long time, and I've always said that taking newborn photos at home is the best place to do it. Babies are comfortable, you have everything you need right on hand, there's no commuting anywhere... it's just easy. 

I'm fully vaxxed and boosted, and I wear an N95 mask in every family's home, no matter what. I'm also happy to test before I come see you -- your family's health and safety are of the utmost importance to me.

Now that we got that out of the way, let's think about tiny baby pictures! I consider any session from 0-4 months a "newborn" session, so pick a time that works best for you and your new baby.

Behind the Scenes at a Newborn Session - Instagram Reel

A note from Jess... 

This past spring I brought a videographer with me to a little 2 week old's photoshoot, and I'm planning to edit together a lovely behind-the-scenes video to explain more about what my sessions are like... but that'll happen this fall. For now, here's a quick Instagram reel I made using an audio I found online... it's not me speaking but I love the message!

Additional Options

COFFEETABLE ALBUMS

My heirloom albums are the perfect way to preserve your images and look back on your baby's 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. 

$295

MOUNTED PRINTS

Choose 4x6, 5x7, 8x10 and larger mounted prints after your newborn session - they make great gifts for everyone who loves your tiny new person. 

$26 - $48

METAL PRINTS

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

MESSY MINISHOOT AT HOME

Is your babe no longer a newborn, but you'd love to document them with some fun photos at home? Consider one of my 20 minute Messy Minishoots at home, developed with babies 9-18 months in mind (but fine for any age kiddo who likes to get messy and then get cleaned up in a tubby! Learn more here

$275

MATERNITY MINISHOOT

Would you consider a minishoot at home to celebrate your bump before your new baby arrives? That's my favorite, doing belly pictures as a minishoot... because we don't need a zillion maternity photos, we just need a handful to remember this time. Learn more here.

$275

HIGH RESOLUTION DIGITAL JPG FILE

Want to make your own birth announcements? Print copies of your favorite images to give as gifts to the people who love your sweet new baby? 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 newborn session)

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.

Don't have a newborn but you'd love to hear more about my messy minishoots at home for 9-18 month old babies, or my minishoots in the Public Garden for older kiddos? I'd love to chat with you!
