5 Ways to Improve Your Wildlife Photography


Nature & Wildlife

Hello friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. As I hit publish on this post, I’m on my way out of the country for a very special vacation/adventure with my family. My mom turned 70 last month, and she and my stepdad have planned the trip of a lifetime to celebrate this […]

Calling All Nantucket Lovers: Explore the Island’s Wild Beauty in My Print Shop (and In-Person at the Dreamland Theater this weekend!)



Okay, it’s still a little chilly out there to be calling it summer, but nevertheless my summer photo season on Nantucket begins today! I am so looking forward to seeing many of you over the coming months – I know it’s going to be a great season and I’m excited to share my love of photography with you.

If you’re looking for some fun weekend plans, you can stop by the Nantucket Photographer’s Network show at the Dreamland on Friday evening (5/26). I will be amongst several photographers showing and selling my work in support of the local nonprofit Addiction Solutions of Nantucket. There will be refreshments and a cash bar, so come enjoy yourself while you peruse some beautiful artwork.

The photos I’ll be sharing – along with many other favorite pieces of mine – are all available in my print shop. My passion for wildlife and nature around New England is abundantly on display in these photos, and are beautifully displayed using only the highest-quality print materials. I’d like to use this post to share some of my favorites with you, and the stories behind them.

5 Fun Things To Do on Nantucket This Summer (including ideas for kids!)



With the sunny season quickly approaching, I wanted to share some of my personal favorite things to do on Nantucket (other than going to the beach!), as well as some recommendations on things to do with your kids on Nantucket. You don’t need an excuse to get over to Nantucket, but it’s nice to have a few ideas in your back pocket, which I’ll be sharing with you. I’ve also got a great photography event I would love to see you at when the summer kicks off so that you can document the summer of ‘23 in style. 

Let's make magic together.
