Hey, I'm May!
Originally from rural New Hampshire, I'm currently based in NYC. I'm a self-taught portrait and dance photographer while also a full-time student.
Art and design has always come naturally to me and after taking design classes in high school I started my college career as an architecture student. While I’m no longer pursuing architecture I’m still fascinated and drawn to all kinds of design. In high school I was also a dancer and my previous years of training has given me an appreciation and desire to capture both the strength and gentleness of dancers as well as the emotion the art form can bring out.
I have always been very quiet and enjoy going through life as an observer. I love capturing real moments of happiness when people are truly being themselves. My goal with photography is not to produce something picture perfect, but to capture genuine moments. I always try my best to connect with the person on the other side of my lense and I absolutely love when I make someone smile or laugh. I don’t care if I capture it or not, but a person’s true happiness, even if it’s just for a moment, makes me feel like I’ve done the best job I can.
Photography has brought so so so many amazing experiences and people and the more I do it the more joy it brings me.
So let’s create something! I can’t wait to meet you!
