I'm Megan, the creator behind The New Romantic. My whole life I've grown up finding joy through the small moments of the day to day - whether it be slipping into a favorite dress, finding the perfect song to capture a moment, or sharing a hot cup of coffee & meaningful conversation with a dear friend. 

The New Romantic was created to be a celebration of the loveliness in every day. To be  A New Romantic is to build a life that is meaningful, intentional, and simply put, lovely. 

Finding loveliness in the every day.

Meet Megan

I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, but I always found myself yearning for the East Coast. The richness of the seasons, the history, and the architecture all spoke to my heart & inspired me to no end. Thanks to several serendipitous happenings, My husband & I found ourselves packing up our car & moving to Boston in 2018.

We now live with our daughter, Isla, and two cats just outside of the city. We are avid book readers, beach goers, and passionate, albeit amateur, gardeners. 

Details, details, details.

My home doesn't feel complete without a big vase of flowers occupying our dining room table. Whether picked up while grocery shopping, from a local florist, or snipped from a field of wildflowers, fresh blooms never cease to bring joy to my every day.

One of my very favorite things about living where we do is our proximity to the ocean. In fifteen minutes we can be strolling past crashing waves next to quaint East Coast storefronts. Never has there been anything that brings me peace quite like smelling salty air as the water kisses the horizon.

There is just something magical about cracking open a new book. It's opening the door for your imagination to run wild, to live in a completely new world, even if for an hour or two. One of my great sadnesses is knowing how many books I won't have time to read in my life. 

A BOOK WORTH GETTING LOST IN

I picked up a book about hygge years ago, and as I read  about the celebration of coziness that the danish practice, I felt like my own heart was being written on a page. Needless to say, if you ever come over & don't immediately notice a candle flickering somewhere in the room, you may safely assume that something is terribly wrong.

Morning is quite possibly the most sacred part of my day. Every day before the rest of the family awakens, I make my coffee & sit quietly with pen & paper in hand as the sun rises. Creating a practice of sitting in stillness brings such hope for what the day may bring.

Whether photographing a wedding or a small business, a maternity session or interior design, I believe every image should do two things:  tell an evocative story & stand the test of time.
