It was not until Barbara Zachary moved to Nantucket in 2010 that photography became a passion for her. Originally, it was just a way for her to share her new life and home with family and friends back in Germany. But it quickly developed into something more, something that brought her joy and fulfillment. In 2011, her husband gifted her a Nikon for Christmas in anticipation of their daughter’s birth. Filled with excitement and a whole new perspective, she took to capturing her daughter’s portraits, milestones and every moment in between.
When she started working at Nantucket Lighthouse School in 2014, she received the opportunity to capture life at NLS through her camera. First for social media purposes, and later for graphic design work, little did she know that this opportunity would allow her to develop a natural level of comfort when photographing children and adults alike. Barbara began taking on more clients, specifically family and childrens portraits.
Her style of photography can be described in two words: clean + natural. Ultimately, the goal of her work is to create beautiful photographs that capture the moment and bring joy for years to come. Barbara currently lives on Nantucket with her husband Kyle, daughter Claire and dog Bailey.
