Creative Headshot and Portrait Photography

With all of the weddings I do and post about, it may come as a surprise to know that I love shooting headshot and portrait photography. I recently had the opportunity to photograph a stunning model and actress, Erica Snow, for a headshot session in my studio. As you can see below, she is a natural in front of the camera, which made the shoot all the more enjoyable.

The 99 Faces Project is Coming to the Museum of Science

Some of you have likely talked to me about The 99 Faces Project, or maybe you’ve read about it on my website as I am one of three photographers participating in the project.

Started by Lynda Cutrell, the project seeks to change the way we see mental illness in this country by photographing 33 people on the¬†schizophrenia spectrum, 33 people on the bipolar spectrum, and 33 of the people who love them. As Lynda writes on the website, “A key to living well with any disability, is not to be burdened with fear of stigma, but rather to have both loving acceptance and inspiring role models.”

Participating in The 99 Faces Project has been fun and enlightening, and I’m so happy to be able to share with you that it has been approved for an exhibit at the Museum of Science in Boston, expected opening is Memorial Day Weekend 2017. The exhibit will invite you and others to come and look at the faces for yourself and see the beauty in each individual. As soon as we have the exact dates, we’ll be sure to let you all know.

It has been such a pleasure working with Jennifer from Makeup Eden and Brandon from Salon Sage on this. We have had people from all walks of life be photographed and help with the project–it’s been truly amazing.

She did everything right!

Candace needed a publicity portrait for her company. I gave her a consultation over the phone and made an appointment for a photography session.  She listen to my recommendations and I believe that her portrait came out beautifully! She had her make-up done here in Salem at Rouge Cosmetics now known as Rouge Salem. Thanks Tracy! Her hair was blow out by her hair dresser. Her engaging personality comes through.
