Why you shouldn’t count chickens…

It has been a crazy past few weeks since my last post, and I am glad to finally be sharing a bit of it with you. So, firstly, it does appear that I was perhaps counting my chickens a bit early in my last post as the job that I thought that I was mostly guaranteed, did end up falling through. …

Happy International Women’s Day!

      Today is International Women’s Day, which intends to bring awareness to the oppression and inequality of women globally.  Personally, I think it is insane that in a world which is so advanced in so many ways, that antiquated belief systems which support the idea that any human being is lesser than any other still exist.       As …

Beauty with Heather Schofield

A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of working with Makeup Artist Heather Schofield of HS-Artistry at The SOPHA in Manchester, NH.  We brought in two models neither of us had worked with before and had a blast creating some fun beauty shots!  Lavanyai and Kira were great sports and I am excited to share my favorite shots from the day …

Beauty Test with Erika and Makeup by Lyndsay

Erika is a gorgeous girl who came to our rescue last minute, when the model that Lyndsay, from Makeup by Lyndsay and I had planned to work with last week was terribly ill, and we had to track down a model an hour before our shoot.  Erika had never been in front of the camera before, but she did an …

Gold Leaf Makeup with Isabella and Lyndsay

Last Tuesday I had a chance to work with model Isabella Capri and makeup artist Lyndsay Simon once again.  While we started the day not really knowing what direction we were headed in, after a bit of brainstorming, we decided to start with a basic concept of doing something “Metallic.”  Now, I have a habit of collecting random things (some …

Beauty with Isabella Capri and Lyndsay Simon

This past week I was able to get together with two talented ladies that I had never worked with before.  For this Test shoot, we decided that some straight up beauty head-shots would be most beneficial for everyone’s portfolio and with a rough idea of at least starting the day with a look that was somewhat ethereal, we dug in …

Raeah’s Fight

Raeah’s Fight

At the end of March, I was contacted by my friend Sarah Montani, who had a friend in need of a special portrait shoot. Her friend, Raeah has been battling brain tumors for the past 10 years and is about to undergo a radical double mastectomy and wanted to have a “before” shoot prior to this radical, life saving surgery. …

Olivia with Celsa of Variant Shades Makeup

Last monday I had the opportunity to Test with Olivia White and had an awesome afternoon… Celsa did a progression of makeup, starting with a fairly natural look, then a nice strong purple-y lip & finally adding some interesting abstract designs for fun!  It was a fantastic day, and I’ve got a few edits to share today!  I’m currently working …

The Lovely Miss Lady Jinx

Here are a few of the shots I got from my last shoot with the lovely Jinx, right before she moved to Nashville… Makeup and Hair by Jayne Riot.  I was sad that she left, but I’m excited to go road-trippin’ to visit her and hang and shoot down in Tennessee at some point in 2013! This was much different …

The Scorpion and the Fox- an editorial tale of trust and betrayal

The following is an editorial I put together for a submission in March… it didn’t make it into the magazine I was aiming for, and I have yet to find another magazine that it would fit… so I figured I’d share it now!  The concept is based on an old Fable that I have seen in many different versions… the …
