You are a moth unto the flame.  Tragic and beautiful.

I had a couple textile moths that were damaged in one way or another and not of sellable quality.  So my husband and I had a little fire.  I can't eat marshmellows so I roasted a prop instead.

This spring I've been chasing the blooms, trying to soak up their fleeting beauty.  This patch of daffodils was in decline but still made my heart happy.

I'll be moving to Rhode Island this weekend, so I have some items for sale on my story.  Some pieces can be shipped, others are available for local pickup in Eastern CT.

I remember the day the sea turned red.

Would you like to be a mermaid this summer?  Or perhaps a nymph on the shores?  Contact me and we can begin putting together your fanciful session!

The day flight became a burden.

The warm weather is here in New England!  I would love to create a meaningful concept for you, contact me about booking your session!  I have limited weekend availability this summer.

In the act of falling
I learnt the skill of flying
and in the art of breaking
I learnt the magic of healing.
-Gemma Troy

One of my favorite ways to pose is simply asking my subject to stumble.

I am a child
of the moon
being raised by the Sun
in a world walked by stars
and a sky drawn with flowers
-Zara Ventris

I spent the evening exploring the Azaleas with this sweet Fae, her mother, and grandmother.

I worked on this dress last year, but made some modifications and added color for this shoot!

Call down the sky.

Jade brought this mirror to experiment with.  To get this angle, I had Jade stand on a tall rock and lean forward/down.

After near constant rain, there was some glorious sun yesterday!  I'll probably be living in this skirt and crop top all summer from @jacq.studio .

Let's talk about visual consistency!  I've seen this topic brought up in the number of places lately.  While editing, I work with natural colors.  That means that some shoots will be more vibrant than others (based on the setting and time of year). The time of day and light also have a huge factor!  Sunny golden hour shots (like this one) will have a different look than overcast images, and I love both scenarios!  So if my work  is a range of colorful to earthy, bright to moody, fanciful to lifestyle, what remains consistent?  My dedication to capturing story, emotion, and movement, all while maintaining signature contrast and life-like colors/skin tones.

What does consistency in style mean to you?

"sometimes i've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." - through the looking-glass, lewis carol

while visiting family in buffalo, i had a chance to photograph sweet giana at the giacomo hotel in niagara falls. the colors, textures, and decor made it a wonderful storytelling setting. when i photograph children i do my best to give direction that can still feel like play!

Water portraits happen to be my favorite thing to shoot!  Poses in the water have such fluidity and grace to them. .
Don't worry, I'll coach you through poses so you can feel confident! .
As we approach warmer weather, this is the perfect time to book a shoot!  Weekend availability is limited.

Life is simply a mix of mayhem and magnolias, so embrace this gentle riot and gather flowers along the way.
- @kat.savage

Yesterday certainly started out with some mayhem, but it was lovely to slow down and photograph Ryan in the magnolias.
