MERRITT & MANE has been a passion project long in the making. From my beginnings in Thoroughbred racing photography in Northern California, to families and special events in central New Jersey; I have always had a creative itch I could never quite scratch in the corporate world and I've found the outlet for satisfying that is through photography.
Originally established in 2015 as Forbes Photography, the company was reborn as Merritt & Mane in 2020, combining the best of lifestyle, kennel club and equestrian photography in the Mid-Atlantic and New England region. The company's name pays tribute to where I found a new calling in life; between the Merritt Parkway and Main Avenue.
Along with my self-taught background in photography, I am the Content & Event Activation Manager for EQUITANA USA; a career that constantly challenges me and feeds my passion for all things equestrian .
To anyone out there who's still searching for their dream job, never let the world convince you it does not exist.
I'm living proof that it does.
