About Suzanne

Hi!

I'm a Photo and Video Stylist working in both the commercial and editorial sectors

of advertising throughout New England.

My experience began in 2015 by being signed at a representative agency in Boston. Soon after, in early 2016, I was hired as the in-house stylist for Stonewall Kitchen Family of Brands. I worked there exclusively until mid 2019 when I chose to become a freelance stylist. 

I love meeting new people and sharing what I can to help others on their journey, the same way I was so generously mentored as I entered the world of styling for large (and small) scale productions! 

A sample of the clients I've worked with:

Siggi's

Hannaford Supermarkets

iRobot

Truly Hard Seltzer

The Boston Globe

Stonyfield

The New England Patriots

BJ's Wholesale

Roche Bros Supermarkets

OXO

Keurig

Nerf

Tea Forte
