Brianna at 38 weeks pregnant is a stunning Greek Goddess. And I happen to know she has a tiny bit of Greek blood so I don’t think I’m overstating her likeness to Aphrodite or Demeter.

Brianna is my cousin. Her dad was one of my favorite people in the world. I grew up in California and Brianna grew up near Boston. I’m so happy my family moved here in 2016 so I could finally get to know my cousin better! And now I’ll get to meet her new baby. I can’t wait!

These photos were taken near the Wachusett Reservoir a three minute drive from my house. Have I mentioned how lucky I feel to live in such a gorgeous place surrounded by these locations that make stunning portraits?

Sometimes you decide to make a drastic change. Sometimes it’s just for fun, but more often it’s because something inside you needs to come out and be expressed. Here is a photo shoot that demonstrates the latter. Jocilyn used to have hair past her shoulders. She used to wear makeup and more “feminine” clothes. Jocilyn is discovering herself and her evolving way of interacting with her world. Updated portraits that reflected where she was in her journey were needed so she could update her social media and portraits in her house with this version of her.

As a photographer I am delighted to capture authenticity of personality. I am proud of young people who embrace and declare their differences. None of us is the same person we were 10 years ago. I say, be who you are now. Show it, Shout it, Love it. You will continually evolve and change and grow. Enjoy your journey!

Here is a view of a test shoot I did with one of my favorite models. These photos are not as heavily edited as they would be if they were for a client. I just wanted to show you what kind of effect we can create in my studio.
I have been incorporating flowers into my photoshoots lately when my clients are willing to have some fun and achieve a contemporary portraiture feel with a little glamour thrown in.

And of course, the traditional portraiture indoors can be given a little pick me up with some photo editing to create an effect of a retro look. This is very popular right now for senior girls.

And finally back to a traditional portrait with lighting that shows your typical studio setup.

For some people Fall is all about the build up to Christmas, for me it’s all about October! Costumes, Halloween stores, trick or treating, jack o lanterns. I would live in Halloween Town if I could. Luckily my job allows me to take fantasy, sci-fi, and cosplay photos all year long. Everyday can be Halloween for me! Whoo-hoo!

Sometimes it takes a Halloween costume to bring out the true personality of a person.

I’m titling this photo, “Somebody done messed up.” Watch out criminals, this little Supergirl means business. If you knew her, you’d know that this costume is really just a reflection of the diva inside. She’s usually on a mission to conquer her surroundings. Do NOT get in her way or you will feel her wrath.
