Herritage Flowers

A few weeks ago I spent a cool and misty morning out with my friends Dre and Sarah lending a hand, or getting in the way, at a plot of land just north of Boston. Here Sarah tends to several rows of a larger urban farming project dedicated to her passion for growing flowers and floral arrangement. Sarah and Dre prepared the garden for the coming season and began the process of planting seedlings while wild turkeys looked on and cool spring morning gave way to a balmy early summer afternoon.

Emma and George for Ashely Rose Couture

Emma Ruth Rundle and George Clarke of Deafhaven took time out of their busy touring schedule during their stop in Boston to work with Ashely Rose Couture on a super fast, down the wire, shoot. Featuring some newer pieces from Ashley, make up by Paula Pedrosa, and jewelry pieces by Burial Ground, we shot in the upper balcony area of the Paradise, a long standing Boston rock club. 

I've been shooting Deafheaven's and Emma's show for years, so it was a fun change of pace and challenge to create much more structured portraits to feature both the intricate clothing and jewelry and their striking personas. 

Boston Women's March for America

175,000 people gathered on the Boston Common, Saturday, January 21st. Standing, marching, and organizing together in a sea of people; they came to protest not only the newly elected Donald Trump, but also the fact that it's 2017 and women across the nation and planet are still faced with a daily battle for their rights, equality, safety, and autonomy.

Shooting with Ashley Rose Couture

Last week I shot some with the awesome Ashley Rose Couture. Michelle Dugan modeled two of Ashley's creations and her makeup was done by Denekia McCoy-Scarbrough.

Ashley's haunting designs can be seen in the pages of Vogue and Juxtapoz magazine.
