Welcome to Bates Lane Photography by Ariel Thomas.

I wanted to shake up the photography scene in New England by providing STYLED sessions that capture real moments and emotion with you and your family so I created Bates Lane Photography. I have poured my heart into what I do because I am passionate about my family and so therefore I am genuinely passionate about savoring these fleeting moments for you and yours. As a mom of three, my oldest being 11, I know how fast time flies and how it is hard to always be in the moment. 


Not only do I want to provide you with dreamy imagery, but I want to provide you with an hour of just enjoying your loved ones. No screen time, nowhere to be, no tidying, laundry, dishes... Just feeling beautiful, grounded and stress free. 

I want photo shoots to be fun and enjoyable, not stressful or stark. When personalities shine through into an image, that's what I am looking for. Please come as you are.

I will capture your personality and what matters most to you so I can create emotional images I know you'll love and want to look back on for generations. 


"If we learn to love they will see. "


Let me tell your story
