The best part of being a beauty photographer is that I help women feel great about themselves. It’s amazing to me how empowered and confident clients are once they leave the studio. Any fears or concerns about themselves they had walking through the door completely vanish. It’s a transforming experience for them and for me.
Another great thing is that I get to goof around a lot. Posing for the camera is awkward at best, so I love getting clients laughing to keep things fun and light. It’s fantastic to watch some one really rock out a shoot after initially being pretty nervous.
I studied photography at the New England School of Photography in Boston where I concentrated in environmental portraiture. For fun my wife and I like exploring Boston’s restaurants or checking out an indie movie. We make our home in the Melrose area with our new baby girl Kiera.
