Caryn Scanlan is a portrait & lifestyle photographer specializing in maternity, birth, newborns & children, serving clients in the Boston area and worldwide.



lineI am a South African, living in Boston, and have been photographing people and places for more than 18 years. Photographing the story of a new member of a family, from pregnancy, through birth, newborn and the first year is my favorite thing to do! This phase in a family is full of anticipation, joy, excitement (and, yes, some sleepless nights.) My role is to create beautiful memories that encompass this amazing time forever, giving my clients a top-notch, first class experience.

My specialized Newborn Studio is in Bridgewater, MA and I have travelled documenting families internationally, too. As a birth photographer I have specialized in low light photography, and as a Newborn Photographer, I have many tricks and skills up my sleeve creating a gentle and safe, beautiful Newborn Photo Session, where you can sit back and relax, As a mama of 3 I have plenty of experience with babies, so you can know your family is safe, in my care.

Family sessions take place at beautiful, family friendly locations, from the beach, to a beautiful park, to a historical site with gorgeous floral gardens. The choice is yours! Regardless, the point of our time together is to have loads of fun, and create memories while we’re creating timeless portraits. And I will help you with the planning every step of the way!
