Betsy Jo Photography Blog bio picture

    Thanks for stopping by! I'm Betsy, and I like taking pictures-- of people, most of all. I'm wife to Paul and mother to Joel, Nora and Connor. They are my favorite subjects. I'm a Special Care nurse by day, a knitter and reader by night. I love New England, and Cape Cod most of all.

    I am available for some limited travel, especially if it's to Ireland or some other lovely clime.

    Wanna' get in front of my camera? Get in touch and we'll set up a session!


They are something special, this crew of 5. I am always so happy to get to photograph them – their interactions, their little laughter, the things that they say. And photographing a new addition to their family? A privilege, as always.

Welcome to the world, sweet baby Morgan. You’re in really good hands.


Lupines & Littles.

I love this family. Really love them. I’ve watched Kayla and Brian through some wonderful milestones in life, and it’s always a privilege to get to photograph them through the seasons. Thank you, always, Little family.

Family in a Summer field.

I love the in-between. It doesn’t last, and time just keeps slipping through the fingers, before you can even catch its flight. But there are moments like this to breathe in. The quiet smile, the mischievous glint, the looking up at siblings. The holding on tight, as long as you can.




Kayla, I love looking at these and seeing your little family. So much has changed in the past few years- so many, many good things have happened and I couldn’t be more thrilled for you & Brian & Emma.

Thank you for always being there, for holding heavy gear, and second-shooting, and finding the perfect light. Thanks for holding crutches, and making sure I didn’t hurt myself even more, and stepping in when I had to step out. Thanks for driving me to every session over these past 3 months, and putting too many miles on your car. People say it in a casual way, but I mean it sincerely- I truly couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks for shooting an entire wedding without me, with confidence and skill, at a moment’s notice. Thanks for being an even better assistant than I could have imagined when you emailed me all those years ago. But more than all of these things, thanks for being my friend.



Again & Again.

Every year when I get a text from Melisa, I have to smile and look forward to our session. These kids are always up for anything, completely comfortable in front of the camera, full of personality and ease. We’ve been doing a fall session ever since Jackson was born. It’s not a privilege I take lightly. Thank you for having me again, John, Melisa, Jackson & Marin! Can’t wait for next time!
