Welcome! I’m Mira, a portrait photographer based in the Boston area. Aside from capturing magical moments on film, I love making people like you feel calm, comfortable, and confident during your next photoshoot. Check out the video below for a behind-the-scenes look at one of my favorite photoshoots and to learn a bit more about me.
"Mira is a lovely, relaxed person. She was so calm in the storm of my family’s lost shirts, doing hair, grumpy toddler, napping baby, late from work chaos that ensued right before our session. While I was running around trying to find everything, she just gravitated to where my kids were playing, and started capturing beautiful, natural moments of them. It calmed me down, and allowed me to be more present for the family pictures that she took later on. I love these photos! "
"Working with Mira was amazing. She captured my family in the most gorgeous light, she really knows how to transform a space to make it look like a wandering meadow even if it’s in a busy park. I can't recommend her highly enough."
"Mira is an amazing photographer! She is very knowledgeable and professional, but at the same time makes you feel totally at ease. My husband and I recently had a maternity photo session with Mira, and he actually enjoyed the experience! (He doesn’t like to be in photos)."
"Mira's work with our grandkids has produced many, many beautiful pictures and, more importantly, many fond memories that we'll cherish for years to come. She can capture a baby's or toddler's mood and their smiles which melt our hearts. We highly recommend Mira Whiting Photography"
"Mira did a newborn session at our home with our two-week old baby and her big sister (age 3.5 years). I chose Mira because of her amazing portfolio, and I am SO happy with the results. There are so many shots that I love! I was really nervous about doing a session with such a new baby, but Mira knew just what to do, how to wrap and pose baby (and sleep deprived parents) so that everyone remained calm and happy. She was especially good with our older daughter, who was still very much adjusting to having a new baby at home. Mira is incredibly patient, calm, and competent. I will definitely schedule another session with her."
"Our family had a lovely time working with Mira. She had lots of great ideas for different settings for our photos, and was very open to our thoughts as well. She did a wonderful job motivating our young children to participate, and we ended up with a variety of pictures of us all looking our best."
"Had a great experience working with Mira on a photo shoot for a book promotion - I generally dislike having my picture taken but Mira made it very easy and it only took about 20 minutes or so, and the results were really worth it."
"I highly recommend Mira Whiting’s newborn photography for anyone who is looking for the *right person* to capture their little one’s early days! She is incredibly patient (something new parents can appreciate) and waited for the perfect shots. She arrived promptly and completely prepared for all the photos I wanted to get, and as far as I’m concerned she is a baby whisperer when it comes to keeping the little ones calm and picture-ready! Her final product is exactly what I was looking for and will make the grandparents even happier about their Christmas gift this year!"
"Mira did family photos for us - my wife and I and 2 semi-crazy kids. It was quick and actually fun, and she somehow got a ton of amazing pictures of all of us, which i would not have thought possible. She has a knack for getting the kids to focus on the camera - she had little games, and worked with their ideas, to keep them engaged - it was like magic."
"Awesome job working with Mira, she took the best photo of me ever and worked with our group to make us shine! She was flexible and encouraging and seemed to know what would look just right."
"Mira did a fantastic job photographing my teenagers. She even managed to get them to smile at each other! I keep the photos on my phone and am constantly getting comments about what a great job she did."
"I had the pleasure of doing a set of early morning headshots with Mira. She really knows what she's doing! She picked a location that allowed for a mix of urban versus natural backdrops. We walked around grabbing various photos and I felt comfortable and at ease the whole time - unlike some photographers, where you can feel stilted, posed, and asked to take on a host of unnatural positions. I received my sneak peak within a couple days and my whole gallery in less than a week, and I'm completely delighted with the results. My family will treasure this! My only regret is not living closer to Boston - I would love to get portraits for the whole family sometime."
"Mira is a baby whisperer! She took the most beautiful pictures of my newborn nephew. The whole family loves them."
"Mira is spectacular! She photographed my video production company, Media Electric Inc, behind the scenes and on location in Providence, RI. She found her way in and around the confusion to capture the moments. She's got that sense of where to be and when. I also had the pleasure of video recording one of her newborn sessions. She connects with people and knows where the story and the magic are to be found."
