If you want photos that capture your family's unique essence and also want those images brought to life in timeless ways to complement your home, the most important thing to know about me is that I'm someone that can do that for you.
I was born and raised in Boston by two abstract artists. As a result I have always had an impulse to create art, and I lose my keys a lot. I first became interested in photography through my love of wildlife and the outdoors, and still use the skills needed for wildlife photography during portrait sessions quite often, whether its capturing a three year old on the loose or holding steady for the split second where dad cracks a genuine smile.
Being raised by artists also gave me a deep appreciation for fine art. While I do enjoy the creative freedom that digital photography allows, there's nothing better than seeing my images brought to life. I think that it's great to be able to share photos with friends and family anywhere in the world, but the sheer number of digital photos and our ever-decreasing attention spans tend to relegate most of these memories to gloomy corners of cyberspace and old dusty hard drives. It makes my heart glad when I can help a family not only capture themselves as they truly are but to turn that moment into a piece of artwork that they'll always treasure.
Hey, Boston Families!
I'm blessed to live on a beautiful farm with my beautiful wife, Sue, and our precious toddler, Mae. We also have a rambunctious cattle dog, Monte, and two lazy cats named Phoebe and Poppy. Sue's family has been farming here since the mid 1600's, and Mae is the 12th generation of Flints to care for this land, which is Pawtucket, Nipmuc, Agawam, and Massa-adchu-es-et ancestral land.
On the farm we have five cows, nine horses, and three alpacas named Rosemary, Patricia, and Ruth. The alpacas love when I include them in family sessions because it means they're getting some snacks. We grow hay, corn, sunflowers, and pumpkins, all of which can provide a beautiful backdrop for family photos depending on the time of year. We also love to garden and usually grow more than we can eat, so any session from early summer through the fall will likely include some fresh local food to take home with you.
I love doing photo sessions on the farm since it provides a huge variety of backgrounds and props, such as stone walls, open fields, flowers, trees, tractors, hay bales, and barn doors. Plus I know where the best light is any time of day, and the barn even doubles as a headshot studio. This place is truly magical, and my favorite part is getting to raise our daughter here and to share its beauty with others.
