The Mystery at Castle Hill


My mother read me Nancy Drew's "The Secret of the Old Clock" when I was a little girl; I was enchanted. Mystery, adventure, and fashion - what more could you ask for! The novels' rich, ominous settings proved a perfect source of inspiration for a photo-shoot, and I love the notion of portraying such courageous female heroine. Shot on location in Ipswich Massachusetts, at The Crane Estate, my inner child had a field-day with this one.

Steam Rising


After collaborating with Kato, founder and designer of Steampunk Couture on a modeling gig in 2012, I was asked to shoot her newest collection shortly after. One thing leads to another, and soon, the shoot became its own theatrical production, featuring 4 models, multiple hair stylists and makeup artist, grand locations, and months of production. Once the editor of New Hampshire Magazine caught wind, this shoot was too good to be missed; so he attended, landing me my first big cover story. The process was generously filmed by local filmmaker: John Hession, creating an arresting behind the scenes video, highlighting my process of creating a fashion editorial.

Ever inspired by classical art, I have always dreamed of recreating some of my favorite masterpieces through the modern lens. Influenced by the style of one of my favorite photographers, Tim Walker, I decided to take a whimsical approach to reproducing this painting. Recalling a heap of leftover props and materials from a film I art directed and styled, I got to work recycling wallpapers and costumes, as well as handcrafting nearly 50 "paper roses" - made from coffee filters - to bring to life this romantic renaissance painting, the behind-the-scenes of which I decided to expose, revealing the seldom seen process that is a photo-shoot.

Spanish Mary 


On a gorgeous foggy 5am late summer morning, my cinematographer friend Zach and I ran around the dewy New Hampshire far I called home, for no particular reason other than were interested in making new images and had wonderful resources available at our fingertips. Inspired by Sophia Coppola, I dug a favorite dress out of my storage unit and we went to work on this simple piece.

Ressurection


I adore Rococo. It's a style that appears in much of my personal work. I decided to approach this Marie Antoinette shoot with a sense of humor, acknowledging the pop culture trend of re-imagining our favorite historical characters - as zombies. With a longing to stay true to the sense of the times' aesthetic, but not having access to the appropriate shooting location, Brandon and I made a substitute backdrop by hand.

Tribute to America's First President


Recycling one of my handmade wigs from a Rococo shoot - giving it a white powder makeover, I thought recreating Washington's iconic portrait was a fun way to pay homage to America's Democracy in 2016, an Election year.

A Grimm Tale


It's probably no surprise to you that I love fairy-tales. Their themes play a large role in much of my personal work. Delving into one of my favorite stories, and drawing from Renaissance era master artists, I recreated Rumplestilskin.

Mythology


Eager to add more diversity to my body of work, I took a plunge into the dark side for this shoot, exploring one of the most creepy godesses in Greek Mythology. And yes, the snakes are real.

Down the Rabbit Hole


An ongoing series, I "fell down the rabbit hole" early in my career, exploring set design and styling using Alice in Wonderland (a cherished childhood staple) as my inspiration. Without knowledge of Photoshop, I was compelled to hand-craft elaborate props and decorations, relying on them to convey the story. Often scavenging my Mother's collection of vintage pieces and decorations, I pieced together, produced, styled and photographed some of Alice's most iconic adventures.
