People and photography have been a mainstay in my life since my own family began the process of documenting their lives, and sharing their photographic memories and pictures for future generations. I have the fondest of memories of sorting through my grandparents old photographs and carefully leather bound albums, from the black and white staged portraits of generations past, to the faded color snapshots and candids of my childhood.
My family has influenced me to explore the world, as they once did, teaching me an acceptance and sensitivity of cultural differences. Additionally, my grandfather, Dan Sanborn, a photographer and journalist, inspired me to learn the art and craft of photography.
I continued my interest as a photographer, graduating with honors, and a BFA in Photography, from SCAD, the Savannah College of Art & Design, in Savannah Ga.
Since then, I have been working professionally in New England as an analog film and digital photographer for almost 20 years, including establishing Hilary B. Photography in 2008.
Finally, my family, my rock, surfer husband Beren, beloved Golden doodle Charlie and Bombay bossy cat Lana and my sweet daughter, Helena, she has given me further inspiration to see the world through the eyes of a child.
Currently in love with med format Fuji films, surprise proposals, jumpsuits, cold foam brew coffees, farm to table, craft cocktails cleansing, hot yoga, succulent plants, and all things tropical and under the sun. Tell us what are you in love with right now?
I seek what inspires me. I see to know. Hilary B.
