I am always short on time whenever I’m visiting home in Boston.  Despite having just spent three weeks visiting family and friends I barely had time to venture off and reacquaint myself with some of my favorite parts of the city.  Luckily, I managed to make it out to Beacon Hill, where I used to live and…

“Carve out time for personal projects” was the advice I heard repeatedly from professional photographers when I first started out in food & lifestyle photography.
