Don’t let another beautiful vacation come and go with only squinty selfies to remember it by.
Family + vacation = magic. You start traditions and laugh until it hurts. The beauty of nature calms your soul, which allows you to get to know your loved ones in new and deeper ways. What if you could preserve all of that in a collection of meaningful family portraits?
No more blurry kids or blocked heads in group photos.
No more forced smiles in matching white and khaki beach wear.
No more so-so photos of amazing moments!
Replace all that with hassle-free, authentic portraits of the people and places you cherish most. Give them—and yourself—a gift that will be handed down the generations.
All you have to do is invite me along for one morning or evening. Mischievous toddlers, adolescent attitudes, and complex family dynamics welcome. I’ll seamlessly coordinate portraits for a short time then photograph candids of family togetherness that will make your heart sing.

You’ve put a lot into effort into a special trip this year. You’ve planned the dates, transportation, and activities—what’s your plan for preserving these precious memories?
Is this a lot of work to coordinate?
No! We’ll discuss a day when everyone will be together doing a lowkey activity like hanging out at the beach or having a BBQ.
We only need the whole family in one place for a 10-15 minute window to get a big group shot. Then, I’ll coordinate small groups for a little while longer. After that I’ll fade into the background while candidly photographing vacation fun.
What if there’s bad weather on the day of our photo session?
Vacation sessions have a special two-day reservation. This means the week of the shoot we can finalize the exact shooting window.
Who usually pays for this?
Often family members pool money for a session and some portraits. A group of siblings might pay for the session and a large framed portraits for their parents, then anyone is free to buy additional portraits of their family or special moments. Sometimes a generous soul will gift portraits to everyone.
It’s totally custom and there’s no order minimum. Just buy what you love!
Where do you travel?
I regularly travel all over New England from my home base in Beverly, MA (30 minutes north of Boston). When available I am happy to travel farther.
What makes you different from other family and vacation photographers?
Creating family portraits of your vacation shouldn’t disturb your vacation. With Inner Life Portraits the session itself is the kind of quality family time you crave. Watch my candid approach unfold with a family in the Boston Common.
I grew up in a blended family of eight kids; I love family chaos and the moments of connection tucked within it. I’ll seamlessly navigate—and love—your family dynamic.
In an age when hundreds of photos can disappear from a harddrive in an instant, I am on a mission to create tangible, high end, memory-rich portrait art.
Maureen took the time to find out what was important to me and my family; it felt like she was a close friend just hanging out and snapping some photos. We now have these incredible portraits that my granddaughter will have forever. When she looks at these photos she will see and feel all the love we have for each other, which is priceless.”
