bare beginnings

“Spring, the season of renewal and reawakening, is a time when nature comes back to life, as does our very essence. Our editorial, “Bare Beginnings,” reflects that breath of fresh air and focuses on the idea of new experiences…” - Ashley Burke, Creative Director

For the past three years, I’ve had the amazing privilege of being part of Polished Magazine. Operated out of my college, this Boston based fashion and lifestyle magazine has taught me so, so much about collaboration, work ethic, and fashion. I’ve been shooting the editorial for the past couple of years and while each editorial is unique and amazing in its own way, this one has a special place in my heart.

The day itself couldn’t have gone any better if we tried. When photographers talk about loving shooting on cloudy days, this day is a prime example of what they mean. It was cloudy, but not dreary. The sun played peekaboo all day and it was 50º, which was warm for March. Oh, and someone let us BORROW their horse (meet Coyote). Definitely not something that happens every day.

Each semester, I pour my heart, soul, and endless amounts of hours into this magazine. Seeing it come to life from the mood boards is always incredible and I’m so excited to finally be able to share it.
