As the State of Massachusetts moves to Phase One of reopening post-pandemic lockdown, outdoor sessions are at the forefront of every Boston Maternity Photographer ‘s mind. How do we ensure the safety of ourselves and our clients while still documenting these fleeting milestones?
Well, it looks a lot like a “normal” maternity session! During your session I shoot with two cameras and two lenses just like before. I use my longer lens to get “up close” without physically getting up close and my wide angle lens to capture the bigger picture. While I might not be able to literally position you, I will direct you with my words and actions to ensure connected imagery.
This will look a little different than the past. I will be masked and will greet you from a distance. No hugs or high-fives! We will walk from our meeting spot to our session location maintaining that distance. I recommend shooting on weekday evenings or very late/early in the day on weekends to avoid crowds. Once we are set up, I will be un-masked so that I can give clear direction from 6+ feet away. If I need to come in closer for any reason, I will re-mask!
In the middle, I’ll be doing what I have always done! Capturing that beautiful belly, the connection of you and your new baby. Photographing your family snuggling you and your belly and getting those environmental shots too! After trying out socially-distanced maternity photography, I realized that I don’t actually come within 6 feet very often. Once or twice in the past, I may have physically positioned you, but usually I am standing back capturing the moment.
For seated shots, I am instructing clients to bring a favorite quilt or blanket so that there is no sharing of materials. Other than that, your smiling faces are all that’s needed!
Once we get everything we need, I’ll re-mask and we will walk out together and say goodbye (from afar!). You can expect your images in your inbox within a couple weeks and a sneak peek in between :).
"To say that I love each one would be cliche and a total understatement, but seriously... She nailed it. Being a photographer myself, I am very picky and searched dozens of photographers before coming back to lyndsay and booking her and I am so glad I did. I can't even remember the last time I hired a photographer and was this in love with the images and unable to pick just a few favorites. Thank you, lyndsay, for making the photo session easy (with 3 kids), fun and providing this mama memories for a lifetime.”
"Our images are so special and really captured our joy and the sweet personality of our little girl. Lyndsay did a great job going beyond the typical posed shots and making our photos feel authentic. We will treasure them forever."

"We have done multiple sessions (family and newborn) and we’re so happy with the results. Lyndsay makes you feel comfortable and is able to truly capture the moment. We will have her prints hung in our house for years to come."
