Massachusetts Commercial Photographer

I’m a visual story teller. As a commercial portrait photographer, I work with businesses, art buyers, editors, designers, marketers and start-ups to create images and campaigns that tell stories through people, and their personal connection to their products and services. Friendly, fun and creative, I collaborate with clients to conceptualize, style and produce exceptional visual content for web, social, print, and video. There is selling power in the story, and my clients and their customers are the heroes of the narrative.

My theatrical designer foundation defines my creative and conceptual approach to my portrait and product photography. Working with creative directors and art buyers is second nature as I am a collaborative artist to the core. Whether the project is a website, an editorial feature, a branding portfolio or content for advertising, social media or marketing campaign, my photographs get to the heart of the story and celebrate its most evocative and influential elements.

If your Newburyport business, article, campaign or website needs compelling, authentic, energized portraits, slice-of-life company climate photographs, and environmental product imagery, I’d love to hear about it – please get in touch!

Great Website Photographs Can Transform Your Newburyport Business

Effective website photographs create excitement, grab attention and motivate potential customers. These unique sets of images – portraits, products, lifestyle images, candids and editorial photographs are ideal for advertising, social media, websites, blogs, etc. They are an essential part of a marketing strategy – a set of high-quality, professional, eye-catching pictures that can be used at a moment’s notice. From staff portraits, to architectural images, to still life shots, we do it all. When a business changes their storefront, or re-brands, or launches a new website or even a logo, taking new images to support the change is essential.

Newburyport Product Photography

Product photography is a special art that is an essential piece in a successful business website’s composition. People, their products, and their services must be creatively and authentically represented to show their excellence in order to attract customers.

But having a great product is only half of the challenge – once you have that fantastic business, how do you get the message out there to potential clients and customers? And not just visible, but seen the way you want to be seen in order to get the right clients at the right price point?
That’s where great product and business photography comes in. And that’s what I provide!

I first met Cynthia on a project we both had volunteered to work on, a calendar to raise money for breast cancer; she as a photographer and I as a stylist. Our models were all breast cancer survivors and for most all, it was their first time having their photo taken professionally. Cynthia was beyond amazing – professional, kind, and so incredibly soulful which is evident when you look at the finished product. Recently, I was the subject in need of some professional photography. I HATE having my photo taken, but with Cynthia, it was like there wasn’t even a camera in her hand – that’s how comfortable I had felt! And the finished product? Way better than I had anticipated! Incredible!

About Newburyport, Massachusetts
The scenic coastal city of Newburyport’s ocean views, downtown attractions, and historic homes makes it a popular North Shore tourist destination. Once a fishing and shipbuilding community, parts of the city’s downtown area fell into disrepair by the mid-20th century. An extensive reconstruction project attracted new businesses such as restaurants, shops, and antique stores while preserving the city’s original architecture and historic feel. The city is teeming with attractions that have made it popular with visitors. Part of Plum Island runs through Newburyport while Maudslay State Park provides hiking through woodlands. The annual Yankee Homecoming event is a popular attraction. Newburyport is accessible via Routes 95 and 1 and has a stop on the Newburyport/Rockport Line of the MBTA Commuter Rail.
