I'm Ceilidh (think "K-lee") and this is me making a goofy face at my ridiculous child. I will also make lots of goofy faces at *your* kiddo, because that will help keep our session fun,
and photo sessions can and should be ridiculously fun.
And also beautiful, because I believe that families are beautiful.
You bring your cuties and I'll bring my years
of-not-so-humble-brag-alert! - fine art photography skills.
We'll make art out of the awesomeness that is your family, chaos and all.

  • We were lucky to find Willow Baby Studios! It was a pleasure to work with Ceilidh and she made the photo session so low stress. She made us feel very comfortable and gave us plenty of time for feeding and changing, so baby was comfortable too! We really felt like she went above and beyond to make our experience and our photos special. We will definitely be using her again!

Little Guys on the Go!||Lincoln, MA Family Photography

At the beginning of this session, when these two cutie pies were still getting a sense of what was going on and who this goofy lady with the camera and a stuffed lion on her head was all about, we got a few shots of them sitting still. It didn’t hurt that they were entirely […]

Late Autumn Hugs||Arlington MA Family Photography

The colder it is, the more essential the photo shoot snuggles….. although this family is pretty affectionate with one another and I’m pretty sure we would have gotten some great shots even without all the chilly fall wind encouraging closeness.
