While shooting for the MGM Springfield project, I told one of the plumbers that my photo of him was the “shot of the day”. He asked if he could have a copy. “Of course,” I said, “give me your number.” He handed me this 2x4.
I appreciate thoughtful design & stunning architecture, but I most enjoy photographing the tradespeople in the process of making a place . The concrete crew plodding through hardening mud, Tyeka, the kick-ass carpenter-mom working through the 2nd Nor’easter of the week, or the plumber who gave me his number on a piece of scrap wood, make for the best images.
Determining the final use for the image is crucial so while planning our strategy, we will collaborate to ensure that the images we create accurately reflect your needs. Whether it’s for a billboard, international publication, fine art display, web-site branding or custom framed prints for over your mantle, I have both the experience and tenacity to get the job done right the first time. In fact, I have been known to destroy clothing & sustain flesh wounds to get the perfect shot.
When I am not in a hard hat & safety vest on a lift, I am a mother of 2 rebel girls. My husband, Stephen and I are unashamed infertility awareness loudmouths. I run a regional support group here in Western Massachusetts & recently spoke about our ten-year struggle with infertility in front of hundreds of people…on purpose. Ted Talk
I try to be an example to my girls to “be the change I want to see in the world” so I make volunteering a priority. I support organizations with my photography that assist women and children: Dress for Success, the YWCA and the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange.
