Being photographed involves a certain degree of vulnerability. In a time where we are usually in control of how we appear to others, allowing a professional photographer to take your photo can be intimidating. When I book a portrait session, I work with you to create an image of yourself that you feel represents your essence as closely and honestly as possible. I choose tones and textures in post production that were inspired by the person’s impression; and during the shoot, I listen to your needs, fears, hopes, and passions. In addition to my live concert photography, I offer personal portrait shoots for bands to use to promote their sound, and am launching a local spotlight edition for New England Sounds.
I’ve noticed that over time and very organically, I have been drawn to shooting what I refer to as “quiet power,” particularly in women and gender-fluid/gender-neutral folks. In these photos, which feature such folks, there is this subtle strength in the eyes and in the body. In my very small experience of being photographed, my body naturally shrinks, hunches, and stiffens, because being photographed, as I’ve mentioned above, feels like forfeit. But some of my best portraits have ultimately been produced by authentic expressions in body and mind of these women, and I’m incredibly grateful to have witnessed it.
