Deb McCarthy Photography | About

A little bit about me......

I adore my 2 bulldogs - Amelia and Hercules!!  I can often be seen walking with them at Castle Island.

I am the proud wife of a retired Army Pilot and proud mom of a very handsome Army Ranger (currently serving) and a beautiful, talented. kind daughter, a college junior in NYC.

I love to cook - soup and meatballs are my specialty!

I am a native Southie girl. My mom still lives in the house I grew up in and 2 of my besties are still here.  Southie #1!!

I often talk food with my clients and love hearing about foods from different parts of world and where the best local ethnic restaurants can be found.

Magazines (fashion or home) and reality TV are my guilty pleasures!

I take my Christmas decorating VERY SERIOUSLY and adore my house when it's all decked out for the Holidays.

The Beach is my favorite place in the whole wide world!

I am SO thankful for all the amazing, supportive and inspiring people I have in my life.

I am so fortunate to earn a living by doing what I LOVE!!

 

A little bit about Deb McCarthy Photography......

My interest in photography began while doing a very typical mom thing……taking pictures of my kids.  Family and friends saw the photos and encouraged me to pursue it.  That's how I decided to start a photography business.

My dear and VERY talented friend, Pia Francesa, took me under her wing and helped me develop my style and the ability to build trust with my clients.  Forever grateful to her.

I am a natural light photographer (most of the time) and love using the mean streets of Boston as a backdrop but also love flowers, trees, fall foliage and snowy days!!  A couple of my favorite locations are the Arnold Arboretum and these huge fabulous metal walls behind the Design Center in Southie.

I always aim to create a relaxing atmosphere during my sessions (no need to stress out when having your photo taken).  Let's have some FUN!

I am always open to trying new locations so please feel free to mention a favorite spot.  It may end up being one of my favorites!

I am comfortable on a set with a whole creative team or with 1 High School Senior at the Arnold Arboretum!

My goal is to make natural looking photos and I am always drawn to the more serious looking shots.


My clients include: Peter Welch's Gym, Martinez Cigars, Boston Latin Academy, Novartis, St. Peter AcademyCaught In Southie and South Boston Community Health Center.

I was named a top 5 Family Favorite by the Boston Parent's Paper in 2014.
