A little about Caryn…

Hello :)

I’m Caryn Scanlan and I started my business, Caryn Scanlan Photography, back in 2009 when my kids left the toddler years behind, and after more than 16 years of loving my camera. I have been photographing since I was 18 and love the creative learning curves I go through all the time.  I especially love the wide variety of people my job allows me to interact with, including Boston Bruins players, an Olympic figure skater, stay-at-home-moms, midwives, attorneys, fellow photographers, entrepreneurs and more!

I am a wife to the most wonderful hubby and a home schooling mom to three most amazing kids! I am so, so thankful for the life we have and for our plans for the future. I am above all a bible-believing Christian and a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I love taking photos. Love. Love. LOVE being behind a camera!  It has been such a blessing to have my images so well received and appreciated by so many people, and one of my most recent accomplishments was having an image published in the TAoPaN Magazine, as well as an Editor’s Choice Award from the well known and loved Clickinmoms.

Over the years, I have grown to love maternity, birth and newborn photography as a favorite time in life to document. I love that I get to be with and enjoy people as I do what I love and support my family.  The best photos come when the camera is forgotten by everyone but me behind the lens. Birth photography is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever been privileged to do. Documenting the story of a new life, and the amazing journey a woman takes to deliver her baby, is just astounding to me, and I’m so thankful that this has become a bigger part of my business and my life!

Thank you for the privilege of capturing your treasured moments for forever…
