We're about to have a lot of fun

Your Boston Portrait Photography

Some people have the genes or the skills or they've got it all and cameras are no big deal to them; they were made to have their photos taken. They can look polished and perfect in any image, and the world loves it, and they love it. Is that you? What ... no? Perfect.

If you're one of my favorite people to photograph, you're maybe a little anxious about this whole thing. You know that being in front of a camera is actually kind of vulnerable. Maybe there are things you don't like about the way you look, or you've been betrayed by cameras in the past, or maybe you just feel like a deer in headlights as soon as the camera is pointed at you and you don't know what to do with your arms. "What's my face looking like right now? Am I doing that thing?" It's a little bit scary. It takes guts to do it anyway.

That double-sided coin of vulnerability and courage can't help but come through in your images. Don't know how to be anything other than yourself? Need some guidance in just letting the walls down and having fun in front of a lens? I am the photographer who is 100% here to help.



Send me a note and I'll get back to you within 24 hours (usually a lot sooner during business hours!) I'll send you my full pricing information, with some questions for you about who you are, what you do, and what you'd like to communicate in your portrait. I want to ensure we're a great fit!

1. Say Hello

2. Let's do it!

If we're excited to work together, the rest is easy! You'll select your date and time and I'll send you my contract and invoice; once that's digitally signed and paid, your session is officially locked in my calendar!

Don't know what to wear? How many outfits to bring? How much makeup to wear, if any? How to find my studio, where to park? Don't worry, I'm here for you every step of the way! Once your session is booked, I send you my full preparation guide and studio information email.

Having a session outside of my studio? I have a list of locations that I know photograph beautifully, which I'll share as a starting point, along with some questions for you about your favorite places to be.

3. Deciding Location and Wardrobe

Hurray, it's the day of your session! If you're having hair and makeup done, you'll come an hour before your session start time to get all polished up, otherwise I'll meet you five minutes before your start time so we have time to get settled and chat a bit.

Next you'll show me the outfits you brought, and we'll get started! I'lll have coffee, wine and light snacks available. You'll be able to view your images on my computer as we go; it makes for a more collaborative process, and we make sure there are a bunch you LOVE before you go.

4. Photo Session day!

Within 72 hours you'll have your online proof gallery of lightly-edited, watermarked images. You can mark images as favorites, share the gallery with your friends and family, and view their favorites. Once your list is finalized you just send me an email! If you have any specific edit requests you can make them at this time.

I'll invoice you for any additional images beyond what you initially purchased, if applicable, and then I'll get started! I work carefully with your final images, and turnaround time is up to 2 weeks.

Boston Portrait Process

heirloom artwork • priceless

Portrait sessions from $950

My session fee covers our time together with multiple backdrop and outfit variations if you like, an online proof gallery for your image selection, and one fine-processed high resolution digital image for your perpetual use. Images are otherwise completely a la carte: you only pay for what you love! It's super easy to add on one of my recommended professional hair & makeup artists who will meet you at my studio if you want that extra polish. Additional image downloads and framed prints can all be ordered after you've seen your proof gallery.

I just want to gush one more time about how happy I am with the author photos you took last year at AWP. I can’t believe how many times I have had to look at them, publishing a book in a time when social media is even more intense than it was the last time I published a book, and I am still amazed you managed to make me look so good and also so myself and capture such a perfect mood - and how nicely they go with my book cover! I will use them forever! Thank you again!

These are lovely and fantastic and I'm so glad to have had this (initial) opportunity to work with you. Thank you, Adrianne!

Studio Session, SOmerville


These are amazing!!! Thank you so much, Adrianne. You gave them just the kind of touches that make them look polished but not overdone. You are some kind of wizard! My hair will never look quite so good, but I will be forever grateful to have great bangs in this photograph. 

Enough about my hair: what I appreciate most of all is that you captured me looking the way I feel, and in portraits that really convey those feelings. You have such a gift!

Thanks for being great to work with! Everyone is pumped about the photos and the whole experience was so easy. Glad we were able to connect.
