I have always been interested in the arts and have found enjoyment in filling my free time experimenting with artistic activities. In my late teens, I started dedicating my creative energy towards photography. Through taking specialized courses in Advanced Art with a concentration in Commercial Photography throughout high school, I knew I had found my true passion. I soon began freelancing and interning with local professional photographers in my home state of Maine.
To continue my education and strengthen my craft, I moved to Boston to attend The New England Institute of Art, where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Photography.
In 2014, I officially launched Hillary Deane Photography, where I focused on wedding, event and portrait photography. I also began second shooting for other photographers in the Greater Boston area. In 2023, I moved to Washington, DC.
What I love most about photographing is working with people and helping them feel great in front of the camera. In addition, I greatly enjoy being a part of their special celebrations and life milestones.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done portrait session (individual, couples, families) weddings, sweet 16s, bar/bat mitzvahs, corporate events, graduations, etc. I made them special by capturing my clients genuine personalties and documenting the celebrations.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I have been featured in several magazines and on the news.
