I am a professional photographer and I love shooting events all over this beautiful city!

My interest in photography developed at a very young age. My senior year of high-school I did an independent study of Photography which required me to assist students with their work in the dark room. This is where I discovered the fulfillment that came with helping others understand the ins and outs of photography.

In college, I spent hours after class working in the dark room and the digital lab. I was completely captivated by the endless capabilities that the Adobe Creative Suite programs had to offer. This played a key role in my current style of project fruition.

In the more recent years, I spent a lot of time editing photos for fashion and advertising needs. A few of my friends in the industry asked me if I could teach them the basics of Photoshop so they could add that skill to their resume. I happily agreed!

This quickly turned into a regular gig via word of mouth and I hope to continue to help others get acquainted with these tools and develop their digital artistic ability!

Holly worked editing photos for my company to aid in advertising and Web publishing. I can only say that her work was impeccable. Every photo that she touched came back to us ready to go in formats that we could use directly or pass on to clients as part of an advertising portfolio. I only wish that she had stayed in Connecticut so her talent could further benefit my business.

Holly is patient supportive and knowledgeable with a good perspective on the subject matter and she is also prompt and offers constructive criticism that made my old ways seem more impactical than foolish.

Holly helped me learn how to navigate Photoshop by giving clear instructions mixed with her infectious sense of humor. I was really struggling and I now feel confident in my abilities to use this program personally and professionally.
