I began working on the Joe Kearns Goodwin campaign in their quest to capture the 3rd Middlesex District senate seat in Massachusetts. It’s been an absolutely wonderful and inspiring experience. Like my work for Gatehouse Media and their array of local newspapers, politics gives me a reason to head out and visit folks I might never have met, and a chance to see all the great work they do in their communities. Recently we went to More Than Words, a bookstore on Moody Street in Waltham, MA, that empowers young adults through business. The shop is almost completely run by teenagers. Also along for the trip was City Year Co-Founder Alan Khazei. He is a rockstar when it comes to building and supporting great non-profits, and this one was no exception.

Working for the Joe Kearns Goodwin Campaign has been a wonderful experience, but even better is gaining access to some of the gorgeous and historical locations a State Senate candidate gets to visit. Last week I shot a fundraiser at the Harvard Club in Downtown Boston. I was in the perfect location to grab a few shots of Boston’s historical Custom House, which has long watched over Boston Harbor.

While working on the new website for the Visiting Nurse Association Eastern Massachusetts, we decided to try and replicate a vintage VNA photo with the current staff. While we couldn’t get any fancy hats for the occasion, I think the ladies pulled off the vacant stare in the distance rather well.
I took a trip out the Connecticut River Valley to get these great shots of Chris and Jamie, who are set to get married this July. We bounced around the beautiful campus of Mount Holyoke College, which was rife with fantastic backdrops for a fantastic couple. I loved shooting them because they were so in the moment – they needed barely any direction to show the camera just how much they love each other.
