This bachelor pad, designed by Galyean Vail and photographed for Homepolish, shows that necessity is always the mother of invention. The client, neurologist Joel Salinas, has synesthesia – a condition where triggering one sense can automatically trigger another sense. Since his senses are so responsive, the designer Barbara Vail thought it important that the space feel calming and serene. The result is a loft filled with neutral tones, warm wood, and beautiful plants.


Excited that I can finally share these images from December, when I did a maker shoot with the talented Ellisha Alexia. Ellisha is a textile artist who has created her own mixed media process of printing and painting on cloth. It’s exclusive, and secret – and has her in high demand in the design world. I loved getting the chance to photograph parts of her day in her beautiful Northampton studio. See more of the story in the July/August issue of New England Home!







This Northampton shoot was pretty much my dream home. Streamlined and modern with light and views everywhere, you practically feel like you are living outdoors. Knowing how mosquitos love me during the summer months, I’d also spend all that time on the screened-in porch. Thanks to Eva and Fred for letting us into their home!

Has been a roller-coaster of a summer lately with nonstop shooting and making deadlines, moving my studio, and trying to fit in some personal time with family and friends. I finally have a breather and can catch up, so here’s two photos from Fourth of July weekend that just really felt like summer to me – a short hike up on West Rattlesnake in New Hampshire for a quick peek at Squam Lake, and the beginning of the fireworks that I caught in Lincoln, MA. Stay tuned for more interior and lifestyle work!
