This is where I share my photo journey, from business to photoshoots, to travel and more. Stay awhile and get to know me.
The photo essays are a special part of the blog for me. They highlight stories, struggles, and beauty through photos. These are some of my favorite posts.
Co-written by Jenn Gordon and Sierra Connell-Ludwig “Put some makeup on that face!” “Your stomach is so huge, get your fat self to the gym!” “You’re really letting your hair look like that?” “Why did you wear that today?” She’s been with me my whole life, through the good times and the bad. Providing me […]
We have very little true understanding of the many struggles in our world: hunger, poverty, abuse, and disease. It’s because we often don’t see these battles, we hear about them and read about them but we rarely witness them firsthand. We may feel saddened, when we read a blurb of some of these issues, but […]
For a long time I’ve wanted to create a photo series focusing around the beautiful and graceful dance technique known as pointe; a form of ballet where a dancer supports all their body weight on the tips of their feet. Yes, ouch. Ballerinas may look weightless but they are extremely strong (you definitely do not […]
1. Book Your Campsite Ahead Of Time Luckily for us, we booked all of our campsites ahead of time. Don’t count on just showing up and having a campsite available, it’s not nearly as easy in the summer months. South Beach State Park, Newport, OR Round Lake State Park, Sagle, ID Crystal Cranes Hot Springs, […]
In this blog I wanted to share a bit more of the behind-the-scenes that goes into making such excellent boudoir photographs. If you listen the commercials you see on TV then you can basically do my job with the new iPhone by setting it to “Portrait Mode.” But, if you try that, you’ll be sorely […]
A couple of weeks ago I photographed a couple at Castle Island in South Boston. Carrie and Colin are due at the end of July with their first child. I loved shooting with these two because they were fun and goofy. It can be totally awkward for people to be in front of the camera […]
When you are a photographer, it is important to have a focus on what you shoot because it gives Clients the reassurance that you know what you are doing, and you are the best at what you do. I’ve been exploring what my niche is and I’ve finally found that I love Boudoir, Maternity and […]
There might have been that time where you considered scheduling a Boudoir Photo Shoot but you ended up backing out, thinking, “this type of shoot is only meant for super models, and I am not a super model”. Well I am here to tell you, that’s absolutely not true! I really love photographing all types […]
I grew up on Lake Winnipesaukee. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s the largest lake in NH, a place where many people come to visit in the summer time. Wolfeboro is the place where you take your family for a summer vacation, get ice cream from the ice cream boat, and enjoy the 4th […]
Location is key! I love providing a list of photo shoot locations for my Boston Clients, it is always nice to make the whole process easier for them. Here are ten great places to have a photo shoot! 1. Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plains Photo created by Amara Photo 2. Beacon Hill Photo created by […]
Time flies. In no time at all your newborn will be walking, talking, and heading off to school. It is important to capture the moments and milestones you will never want to forget. That’s why I have started offering various newborn-first year packages. I want to share these great photos that I shot for Sandra […]
When you don’t run your own business it can be hard to understand the amount of time and energy it takes to build a business and keep it running. I think this happens a lot with people in the creative field. When you don’t see us entering an office building at 9 and leaving at […]
The inherent trust between a photographer and a client is a unique bond: the client complies with a few things I ask (wearing certain colors, agreeing to shoots at certain times of day, etc), and I take and edit countless pictures to ensure I capture the most precious moments in their life. I feel as though […]
