Portraits | Christa Gniadek

Singer/songwriter/recording artist Christa Gniadek

Christa contacted me about creating a series of personal branding portraits for her 2016 press releases, social media and her new album. ?A graduate of Boston’s own Berklee College of Music with degree in songwriting, Christa is an artist on the rise and embarking on making her fourth full length studio album.

After our initial planning conversations, I sensed we were going to have a great time. ?And we did! Christa is all about sharing her music with people. I’m all about sharing my photography. We had a terrific time together in the studio, sorting through clothes, assembling, making images and having fun. ???

?Your line about photography being a tool for self expression and affirmation – Yes!! That is so refreshing to hear, really. I feel the same way about it but I never was able to find a photographer that seemed to have that attitude. It?s so clear in your work that you really practice what you preach.?

This selection are some of my favorites from our session. ?It is always a pleasure to collaborate and dive into the creative process with another artist. You may see these images and others on her website soon. You can follow her on Facebook and ?Kickstarter.


Christa brought in gorgeous 3/4 sleeve cropped faux fur jacket which paired well with denim and this beautiful beaded camisole I found at the SOWA vintage market.

One of my favorite images from the shoot – and definitely the most moody of the bunch. ?

Modern Muse is run by artist and photographer Allana Taranto. ?I view each shoot as a collaboration, and value connecting with my clients to work together to make their personal branding portrait session happen.
