What type of photographs do you shoot?
I am a business and personal brand photographer so I work specifically in that world. I shoot personality headshots, business headshots, photos to help educate people on the work you do, the people you serve, the products you sell, and the services you offer.
How far out are you booking?
I am booking out about 2 weeks.
What do I need to bring to a brand shoot?
On our pre-shoot phone call we will chat about the ‘tools’ that you’ll bring along to the shoot. Anything to help illustrate what a client would experience once working with you. For example: a laptop, books, a notebook, headphones, a few outfits, your favorite coffee mug, accessories, etc.
What type of packages do you offer?
Once you send me a note I will respond as soon as I can and share the different options!
Should I book hair and make-up before the shoot?
I think the more effort and energy that goes into a brand shoot the better the product. If it’s possible- getting these services provides more confidence for you and does help how one translates in photos.
What is the average amount of photos I will get?
This depends on the package you choose. I provide a free digital gallery of all your edited photos and give a great variety from our shoot!
When do I get my gallery after the shoot?
You will receive your online gallery in 2 weeks.
Where are you located?
I am a Portsmouth, New Hampshire based photographer and have a home studio in North Hampton, New Hampshire. I travel mostly in the Seacoast, NH area though am in Boston, MA many times a month and love to travel!
Can you travel to me?
I travel nationally and internationally. Let’s see what’s possible!

Finding a location for my online based business clients can be challenging. They want a home environment (that’s not their own house) to use. I kept finding this coming up so my partner and I took the leap to convert our studio apartment into an actual studio to open up to our clients. It took …
Self-care + preparation. Putting some serious effort in this will pay off- promise! Think about how you’d like your hair, your make-up, nails, wardrobe to be.
