I'm Jillian. I'm a Boston-based photographer with a passion for capturing the beauty of the world around me. I'm constantly on the hunt for new locations that take my breath away and make my heart skip a beat. Many of my images have an intentional soft or selective focus and rustic texture for a dreamy, painterly, and vintage feel. I am committed to using the highest quality archival inks and papers so you can cherish your print for many years to come.
It really all began half of my lifetime ago. I was 16 when I was handed my first SLR film camera. I was immediately in love. I took a 2-week summer course in darkroom photography at a local college and was hooked. (Some of the first photographs I ever developed included my mud-splattered TrailBlazer and golden retriever, Princess Bailey.)
Since then, I've taken a wide variety of photography courses and workshops including darkroom, digital, commercial and alternative processes.
I've traveled around the world, trekked down streets and beaches, hiked along the coast and explored abandoned buildings.
I think every picture holds a story... my goal is to share that story. I'm most drawn to old and abandoned places that hold deep, rich history. Whether it is an abandoned farmhouse or a crumbling factory, I am fascinated with the way that nature reclaims her space as man-made structures fall into disrepair.
