Cloud And Day » Lifestyle Photography by Boston Photographer Joyelle West

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! (Shot for Boston Globe Magazine and styling by Shannon Tate Interiors.)


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!




I’ve been lucking out with the work spaces lately, this time by Steve Santosuosso of Squarehouse Studios at Pluck PR on Newbury Street in Boston. Sidenote: we all know that spaces really aren’t this neat in everyday life. And we photoshop things like cords to computers. (I mean, in that first photo, how is the computer even working without a plug? It’s a mystery). That’s just how photoshoots are, but it’s fun to live in the world of make-believe sometimes.
