a night at the Bowl-O-Rama.

Mayor Mike's Funeral, Hartford, CT

Welcome to the world, Lila!

I was originally supposed to photograph the birth, but they ended up having a C-Section sans fotografia.  It was really sweet to be with them in the first 24 hours. 

Alana Lawton: Arrows & Honor Tattoo Studio

I was asked by my friend and tattoo artist Alana Lawton to photograph her new, 100% self-run tattoo parlor that she just opened!  Previously with Hartford County Tattoo in Bristol, CT, Alana has done some of my favorite work on my body in the last few years.  

Here's what always happens with her: you come in with your idea, with a good sense of what you want.  Then over the course of your time with her, she'll ask you almost exactly 100 questions about what you'd want your tattoo to look like.  little things, like the shade of brown for a branch, or the thickness of the line across your wrist.  

she's the most detail-oriented, mindful tattoo artist i've ever had the pleasure to spend time with.  It's clear that she spends a great amount of time not only sharing her creativity permanently, but holding herself up to an ever-increasing self-standard of how great her contribution can be.
