Hi, I am Sharon.
Born and raised in Dracut, Massachusetts. I am not an award winning photographer, but my family thinks so. I'm really just here documenting moments and loving every minute of it. While I'm sure that this block is designed for me to say more about myself...that just seems weird. Instead, I'll explain what it's like when I book a shoot.
It's like this....
...I just got hired to do this huge "Editorial Shoot" (a few Senior Portraits) with this amazing model. I can't leak the models name for security purposes, but it's like being a guest at one of J-LO's weddings and you have to leave your phone stuffed in a locker somewhere off location so no one can tip off the paparazzi (not true; bring your phone and IG behind the scenes).
Once we're at the shoot, there's like 40 personnel (really it's me; I have zero assistants) pulling together clothing, hair, makeup (also known as water & chapstick). It's everything you could imagine from an Editorial photoshoot (beach, park, or downtown Lowell). Together, the Model and I create this unique portfolio. There's dancing, walking, sitting, tossing hair, and silliness. My model brings family members with them, so we toss everyone into the shoot and force big hugs.
Eventually the sun goes down and it's time for some light retouching behind the screen. Model and I collaborate/decide which images should go to print for "The Cover" (otherwise known as the wall print and/or signature Folio Box).
Once it goes to print, there's no going back (clearly you call me if there are any issues). It's a week or two until the amazing people from UPS / FedEx deliver the final product and when it arrives, I get the first look to make sure everything's perfect before delivering to my model.
In case that wasn't explained correctly, I love photographing people. So relax and have fun. I'm here to walk you through it.
Swipe through my Portfolio. If you think I'd be a good match for you, contact me to discuss your ideas and schedule a photoshoot. Can't wait to hear from you.
Got an idea? Contact me and we can discuss how to make it happen!
