Helping vibrant brands connect with their customers through powerful photography.

Hi! I’m Raya.

I have a drive that is best described as assignment based. I treat my clients and my work as a duty, mission, important task.
I am based in New Hampshire and travel out of the state often. I shoot powerful and authentic photos of people, lifestyle brands, food, events, and spaces.
I believe when we share ourselves more openly we see how close we all are. This is why I founded People of Portsmouth, a photojournalist project sharing people through portraits and stories.



Brand Photography + Social Media

We will work together to successfully and effectively share your company’s story and create consistency across your brand. We capture the people, services, products, and culture of your brand.

Creative Entrepreneur Photography

Personal branding is about connecting you to your clients. We will create an evergreen gallery for you to use that expresses what it feels like to work with you. Before we even shoot we will really get down how we are going to tell your story, share your values, what you offer, and what it feels like for someone to hire you!

We will shoot for that perfect balance of professional and personal.

Let’s do this thing!


I am always seeking new projects and collaborations on the Seacoast and enjoy traveling for projects as well. Please share with me your thoughts and ideas.
