Zeus and Otus in the Snow

February 8, 2018Session Highlights

There’s nothing quite like a fresh snowfall in New England!  We actually had Zeus and Otus’ photo session planned before we knew there was snow in the forecast, but the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.  The world looked like a winter wonderland and the late afternoon sun came out just in time to make … Read More

Project 52: Depth of Field

February 2, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “Depth of Field.”  I love using a really shallow depth of field, so that the background is blurry and the subject is in focus.  I find it’s an effect that draws your attention right to the dog in the photo.  This week, I managed to convince Flint to hold … Read More

Project 52: Catchlights

January 26, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “Catchlights.”  Catchlights are the the white highlights in the eyes that really bring them to life.  See the difference between Flint’s eyes (on the left) and Eva’s eyes (on the right)?  Because Eva is looking down, she doesn’t have any catchlights. Flint is looking up and you can see … Read More

Project 52: Fill the Frame

January 19, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “Fill the Frame.”  Getting close the subject and filling the frame are great ways to show off the little details that make our pets so unique.  I decided to focus in on Flint’s amazing, adorable puppy eyes.  I swear, it should be illegal to be this cute. Don’t forget … Read More

Project 52: Rule of Thirds

January 12, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “The Rule of Thirds.”  Moving the subject off-center (to one of the “thirds”) is my favorite way to make a photograph more interesting.  Of course with a subject this cute, every angle is a good one. Would you like to see more “Rule of Thirds” themed photos from our … Read More

Project 52: Blank Slate

January 5, 2018Project 52

It’s the first week of a new year, and I’m so excited to introduce my new little “blank slate,” an English Shepherd puppy named Flint.  As many of you know, I lost my heart dog, Iris, early last year.  Life just does seem quiet right without a dog, so a few weeks ago, I drove … Read More

Different Types of Earth

October 7, 2017Adventures with Iris

One of the best things that I’ve ever done in my life was making time to be with my amazing little red dog at the end of her life.  She’s been gone for nearly 7 months now, and I still think about her and our adventures every day.  I’m so fortunate that I was able … Read More

Taylor and Paige

October 5, 2017Session Highlights

I met Taylor and Paige on a perfect summer evening.  These two beautiful girls were full of the boundless energy that only a Labrador can have, and they covered me (and my camera!) with puppy kisses.  We began their session with a hike to the top of Weir Hill, and these happy girls led the … Read More

Pippi’s Sunrise Adventure

July 12, 2017Dogs in Landscapes

Living on the East Coast means each day begins with the sun rising over the ocean.  Because of this, the very best beach adventures begin before dawn.  Truly, there’s no better way to start the day than by watching the sun paint the sky brilliant shades of gold and pink as it comes up over … Read More

Mount Washington Sunrise

July 3, 2017Adventures with Iris, Dogs in Landscapes

Last summer, Iris and I woke up at 3:00am and drove up Mt Washington, New England’s highest peak, so we could watch the sun come up over the White Mountains.  The whole world was dark and quiet while Iris enjoyed a bit more sleep in the backseat and I waited for our turn to begin … Read More
