This is a freelance photographic project I had been working on in 2017 at MPM Manor in Frederick, Maryland. MPM manor is the former estate of Author and Egyptologist Barbara Mertz, Elizabeth Peters, Barbara Michaels of the Amelia Peabody series. I was thrilled to be hired to document the property including Barbara's shire-inspired gardens. I also had the privilege of photographing all of Barbara's Egyptian and antique jewelry collection as well as a collection of antique clothing and accessories that went up for auction. I had been digitally archiving the entire collection of the author's travel photographs as well.
