Where am I?

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

A few days ago I had done a quick google search of KHP. I noticed the Listing said that my studio has permanently closed. That is not the case. I have moved to Lincoln, RI. I have shifted my style to Vintage Glamour Photography. Please check out my new Site www.VintageGirlStudios.com.
I have a great Mother’s Day promotion going on.

LOGO2017

Hello,

You have probably stumbled on to this  blog that you may think that the photographer has been quiet for months or a year. Maybe it is not in business anymore? Oh no! There is just a new site. I have semi retired (Only up to 5 weddings a year rather than 45)  from weddings/family portraiture and moved focus of the studio into Vintage Glamour Photography. Once I started this style I realized my true calling. You can see my new adventures and photography on my new site Vintage Girl Studios.

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of collaborating with the the talented and lovely Cherry Dollface and Bomber Betty Cosmetics at the New England Shake-Up. It was a long day but, many beautiful women and images came out of the day.   It was a great time meeting these ladies and many laughs. I hope they will return next year.Vintage Girl StudiosVintage Girl StudiosVintage Girl StudiosWatch the session here.

MayMac Design Studios

MayMac creates pinup lingerie, corsets, & burlesque inspired costumes to celebrate women of all shapes and sizes. The company was founded on the idea that curves are power, color is key, and that there is no such thing as too much glitter. Designer Katey Cusack began MayMac in honor of her grandmother Eunice May Macfadden, who always dreamed of being a designer and would name her line after herself. The inspiration behind the designs have always been femininity, glitter, eye catching colors, and unnatural waist lines. MayMac caters to a variety of sizes, believing that every woman should always feel her most confident! MayMac will strap you into the most stunning costume or the most comfortable, yet effective shape wear you have ever worn! Love yourself, treat yourself, learn about MayMac!
