What It's All About...

I believe our memories are our most precious assets-- and I believe that capturing our memories in photographs helps us keep those moments alive. The most amazing thing about photography is an image's ability to actually bring back the emotions you were experiencing when or where the photo was taken every. time. you. see it. My ultimate goal is to help my clients collect a lifetime of beautiful memories, whether they have photos I captured for them in a personalized photo shoot or prints from my fine art collection. Either way, I hope these photographs bring you back to your own memories or daydreams, and enable you to "be there" every time you see it.

While I am based in New England, I travel a fair amount and am currently in Paris for several months. I spend time every day wandering the streets, stopping at cafés, and soaking up the culture, but I am also earnestly working on capturing the details that bring the City of Lights to life for each of us. I also hope to return to China in the Spring and the western United States this summer, capturing the connection I feel to each place at each stop. I am inspired by simple, authentic beauty. I am equally moved by the sound of a child's giggle and a glowing evening sky, by the incredible contrast of a red flower on a green stem, and a dolphin leaping out of the water. As you look through the pages of the shop, you will see similar looks throughout my body of work- even those from different series will often have similar colors and lines. Feel free to order prints from different series and create a gallery of very different images that work beautifully together (if you're interested in this, order a custom gallery set to get a discount!).

As a professional photographer, I take as much care in the printing of each photograph as I do in developing it. I use professional cameras and equipment to provide me with the best possible "raw" image. Each photograph is then carefully edited by hand, a process that can take several hours. I've color matched my computer screens to the professional print shop where your print is created, so when your print is ordered, both the accuracy of the colors and the longevity of the print are guaranteed. I love what I do and hope you see that in every step of the process. Please reach out if you have any questions I can answer- whether it's about the print, the process-- or the location where the images were taken!

I hope you enjoy the photographs. I hope they inspire you, and remind you that it truly is a beautiful world that connects us all.

Cheers!- Karissa
