My recent trip to New York

Just a few weeks ago I finally got to meet an artist I've always admired and come to know as a close friend, Miss Aniela. She held her first ever stateside Fashion Shoot Experience in Brooklyn. My husband and I stayed in this Clinton Hill brownstone mansion for 3 days with her and her fiance, Matt and some other friends.
My first day was spent mostly assisting and by assisting I mean things like...sitting out on the stoop in the sun waiting for models to arrive ;)

The second day I paired up with Rick and we spent the day shooting 5 different models in 5 locations of the house. It was dreamy, nerve racking, tiring. Truly one of the best things I've ever done and I felt proud and accomplished at the end.
The last day of shooting we were set to leave and head back to Boston but we just couldn't! So we spent the day hanging around and I'm so glad we did. I got to pose nude for Miss Aniela which is something I've never done before! I took loads of behind the scenes shots and we got to spend quality time with some of the wonderful people we met. It's always the people you meet who make a trip like this so memorable. It was hard to say goodbye!
Lastly, I would like to mention I will be featured in the next issue of Musetouch Magazine which comes out mid-April so be on the lookout for that.

When one moment changes everything...

Hi all! The last month or so has been truly life changing and I wanted to share some news!
My new website is finally up! I am still tweaking a few things but please have a look. :)

Ok, that is not my life changing news. I recently got married and found out that I'm pregnant! Came as quite a shock but I am truly happy and thankful. It's funny how you plan for your life to go a certain way and then one moment changes it all. I realized that I have to start making some very wise decisions to plan for the future.
I decided that I would add a 'prints and services' section on my website, and start offering photographic services in the hopes that I will be able to be a work from home mom at least for a while. I am also thinking about the possibility of teaching a workshop at some point in the near future. If you believe in my work, please spread the word!
I am due late September which means I will be missing out on participating in my favorite art shows this year. But it's all for a wonderful cause. :)
My next blog post will be all about my weekend in NYC with Miss Aniela. Be on the lookout for that towards the end of March!
Lastly, I wanted to share one of my favorite photos that I've ever taken of Christine! Inspired by the film 'Oklahoma'
Happy weekend!

the clouds were real

It's been too long

It just struck me today that I haven't written in over a month! This year has already been so busy and full of surprises and I have some really exciting things happening. I hope you all do too!
I thought I would share some of my recent features :)


I'm also in the new Illusory Magazine. You can purchase (or just browse) here!

The next few months are going to be amazing. I have some new models lined up and I'm even going to be meeting up with Miss Aniela in NYC in March. Eek! So beyond thrilled! More on that later ;)
Lastly, here is an image I took recently that has become one of my very favorite pictures I've ever taken.
Thanks for all the love and support! I appreciate each and every one of you.

This has been quite a whirlwind of a year! Just had to get that out before I mention that this is my very first blog post. :) I'm hoping to write more in the new year as I have always loved writing so very much. We'll see where it takes me. I thought I would take a moment and write it all down...all of the amazing things that I have done this year, fears that have been conquered (or still conquering). It has been a year of so many 'firsts'. I adopted two rescue dogs with my boyfriend. I believe they saved me more than I helped save them. I went to my first ever photography workshop this year, followed by a second and in the new year have a few others already lined up. Collaborating and meeting other artists has made me grow so much as an artist but also, and more importantly, as a person. I've come a long way pushing through some pretty debilitating fears. Fear of the unknown, fear of making mistakes in front of others, fear of not being able to impress artists whom I look up to. I'm just gonna say one thing - fear is so dumb. So much wasted energy. Anywho, now when I feel afraid of something, I know I have to do it, tackle whatever it is head on. And I am so at peace afterwards. Just in the last few months I have begun collaborating with other artists, working with models...doing things I had always thought about but kept to myself mostly. There is nothing better than leaving your comfort zone (which I plan to do SO much more of). So many things in the works next year I can barely keep my composure (eek!). I'm going to end it with some pictures, just some very special moments for me over the last 12 months. Happy New Year!
