Having a professional portrait you're proud of allows you to connect with your target audience at first glance. Our goal is to produce an authentic image that reflects professionalism and communicates confidence and poise to the viewer.  Making a mark in your industry with just one photo requires the viewer to feel a connection.  We aim to produce that connection utilizing our expertise in posing and psychology behind body language and expression.

Producing Connections


Next to your comfort, we value your time.

The photo process takes only 15-20 minutes. After your group photo or portrait session, we’ll collaborate to choose your best images. Depending on your session, you will choose your image immediately onsite or link to your group portraits will be provided quickly via email.  We help you choose which photos best represent you. Hear more about the process from clients!

Providing Convenience


Our goal is to capture an image that authentically represents you and your mission. Much of that is providing an atmosphere where you feel at ease.

Whether it’s meeting us in our Boston studio or on location where you do what you love, we aim to assure you feel at ease during your session.  You will not find a busy waiting room in our studio. We schedule appointments to ensure the studio is all yours at the time of your session. Clients say they feel right at home in our thoughtfully designed cozy space.

A Comfortable environment


our philosophy

I have used Boston Portrait Company exclusively since I began at Margulies Perruzzi Architects in 2004. During that time, they have provided excellent customer service. They are always extremely responsive, and have a quick turnaround. Our employees love the instant gratification of seeing and choosing their final headshot on the spot. Of course the quality of their photographs are top-notch, and they are reasonably priced. I would recommend them to anyone!

Barbara Hicks, Director of Marketing & Media

"Thank you again for a wonderful experience today... It looks great! Thank you for the quick turn around."


Boston Portrait Company was very easy to work with and took the time to understand our ask and needs. We have worked with them on multiple occasions including three day in-office photo shoots as well individual studio appointments. They responded quickly to our needs and were always available and eager to help. When visiting for three days, their set-up blended perfectly into our office with no interruption. The team of photographers are extremely polite and professional; we can’t wait to work with them again.

Erin Connolly, Risk Assurance Associate

…a great eye for both business and creative photography. We hired her to take photos of our staff, during meetings and office time. She was able to capture the spirit of the team while they were fully engrossed in their day to day work. I can’t think of a better photographer to engage for business photos.

Kathy Greer, President

"Thanks so much for everything. The photos came out amazing and I can’t say enough about the professionalism and customer service I experienced working with you."

DAVID SMAll, Senior Vice President

Thank you for your prompt service. It’s always a pleasure doing business with you.
