Portfolio Samples


I provide individuals and business owners with the very best in candid family portraiture, attractive professional head shots, journalistic style event photography, and breathtaking photographic art. 

My portraiture work shows the candid moments that occur amid the more obvious ones. I am all about capturing relationships, not documenting subjects. It's what makes my lifestyle photography sessions so unique and so precious to my clients.

In taking professional head shots, my main focus is on helping my clients to relax, allowing their natural, uninhibited personalities to shine through.

When photographing events, I do so in an unobtrusive, photojournalistic manner, letting my pictures suggest a story, not define one.

My abstract seascape and landscape photography provides a refreshing and unique accent to your home or office decor. 

Portrait Pricing 

Portrait sessions are priced according to the specific needs of each client or project, but begin at $395 for two hours of shooting time. 


This fee includes Christopher’s time and talent, at the location of your choice, and a $100 credit toward the purchase of prints or high resolution digital files.  (Locations that require more than 30 miles of travel will require an additional fee.)

Photos are professionally edited and selection of proofs are presented to clients.  Prints and individual files may be purchased separately and are not included in the session fee.

About me

When I was young, I was taught to see the forest through the trees. But when I look into the woods, all I ever see are leaves. The little things are what I notice, a trait that truly defines my photographic style. I find that looking at the details, from very unexpected angles, turns the seemingly mundane into art, with a life, and essence, of its own.

Much of my work is abstract, using techniques that defy traditional rules. My goal isn’t to take a ‘perfect’ or ‘realistic’ photo, but rather to capture the essence of the subject – the confluence of emotion, movement, color, and shape.

My philosophy on candid portraiture is simple: Create an auspicious environment in which to shoot, engage the subject in that environment, and then…sit back and observe them being themselves, ready to capture the beauty of who they really are.

Some of my favorite subjects are Maggie and Rocky, the Labrador Retrievers who share a home with my wife Kathleen and our daughters in Sherborn, Mass. There is never a dull moment in the world of a dog, particularly with so many socks to steal and mayhem to create. Maggie and Rocky often accompany us to our summer home in Nantucket, where they create all kinds of wonderful mischief for me to capture through my lens.

If you have questions about my work, are interested in purchasing a print, or would like to discuss pricing for a portrait session, please contact me by email and I will get back to you with the details.  Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy my work.
