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!


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!

Sherry - These pictures make me smile! They are the most beautiful children! Love!

What fun it is.

This little guy just turned one. And he seems to be quite happy about it. Sweet Nolan may be one of the happiest, most expressive boys I’ve ever photographed. You can’t help but grin when you see him so full of joy. I got to do two shoots with this family recently, and I’m still smiling about it. Thanks Jeff, Suzy, and Nolan!



Katie & Dustin. Connecticut Wedding

What a day this was. The feeling and warmth of home on a beautiful Autumn afternoon, when the sky sparkled the deepest blue, the breeze was just right, and family and friends fully rejoiced.

Katie and Dustin, what wonderful anniversaries you are going to have as you reminisce about all that happened on your wedding day, how blue the sky, how happy the hearts, filled with hope and promise.

Thank you so much for having me.

(Side note:  I’ve been able to photograph every wedding of this family. Jon and Sara, and Jesse & Rachel, and now Dustin & Katie. I can’t say enough about Pam and Gary and their children, their home, the kindness they have always exhibited. I’m thankful they’re all happily married and settled, but I’m really gonna’ miss this. Thank you all, so very, very much.)
