Welcome


Thank you for taking an interest in my work!

Below you will find the culmination of many passions, hard work and creative resourcefulness. Each and every shoot throughout my portfolio represents an idea, a vision, an expression. Like every photo, behind it is a story of how it came into existence, and many of these stories (in my case) are extraordinary, and I am thankful to share them with you. To the right, you will see a menu, showcasing different projects and areas of work, or simply keep scrolling to view it all.

If you are a client, please note much of the work I chose to showcase here is personal and does not represent the entirety of my portfolio. To view more of my commercial work, please contact me. To view my film portfolio, click here.

New Hampshire Magazine


As both an avid fashion lover, and New Hampshire ‘simple living’ enthusiast, I found myself in a confusing and difficult situation in late 2016. After living in New Hampshire for many years, I had a brief stint of city living in Boston for two years, only to return to the picturesque state I called home, specifically to work on a documentary film project. Tragically, this project fell apart leaving me both jobless and separated geographically from the fashion industry in Boston, and even further from the exciting fashion world in NYC. Somewhat dismayed, this feeling of tragic loss forced me to reevaluate my circumstances, opportunities - and in the darkness, I felt a compelling call of duty.

Noticing throughout my years of adventures chronicling the small-town retailers and shops of New Hampshire, I realized our state was filled with designer and original clothing, carried by quality and creative retailers. Our state boasts everything from consignment Chanel, to Zimmerman off the racks, to exclusive European designers, to couture works designed and fabricated right here in our Granite State. More so, I came to recognize a gap in the market and a deep hole of representation in the community.

Though it was clear that there were great retailers working hard to provide men, women, and children with quality, fashionable garments, and a savvy clientele putting those collections to use in a uniquely New Hampshire way, I felt that the community here needed a place to connect and share inspiration. Amidst NH’s reputation for simple and rugged garb, there was a culture that was marrying those attributes with high end fashion, and I felt that they weren’t being represented.

After working with New Hampshire Magazine on various occasions, I knew they would be the ones to answer the call of fashion duty. They’re a daring publication, certainly willing to step outside the boundaries to provide content their readers admire and appreciate. I pitched myself as a fashion editor, and they brought me onboard the very day of our meeting (and then some!). Since 2017, I’ve worked with them to not only conceptualize our fashion editorial calendar, but I also coordinate, produce, and style each fashion shoot that appears in the magazine. In remembrance of a favorite quote “if you build it, they will come”, I find my work as a fashion editor both rewarding and challenging, I am excited to see where the future of fashion in New Hampshire lies.

Jean-Honoré Fragonard


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.

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.

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 Ma, at The Crane Estate, my inner child had a field-day with this one.

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.

Alice In Wonderland



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.

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.

Tribute to America's First President


Recycling one of my handmade wigs from a Rococo shoot - giving it a white powder makeover, I thought this 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.

Architectural and Beyond 


My first professional experience in the photography field came in the form of interior styling and photography assisting for John Hession, Photo Editor of New Hampshire Home Magazine. This eventually parlayed into a position at the magazine as a Research Assistant - a position I held for nearly two years. Throughout the years, working alongside photographers John Hession and Rob Karosis, I have styled interiors for New England's top architecture firms, interior designers, builders, landscape artist, and historic sites - photographing everything from hospitals and commercial spaces, to multi-million dollar residential vacation homes.
