Project 52: Landmarks

June 29, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “Landmarks.” My favorite landmarks are always the natural ones – the bits of earth that you can look at at know exactly where you are. Gnarled old trees, weathered stones, or in this case, one of my favorite waterfalls are all landmarks that guide us through the forest. At … Read More

Project 52: Blue

June 8, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “Blue.” I discovered this perfect, hidden spot in the woods last week and have been looking for an excuse to bring Flint back there with my camera. The green forest didn’t quite fit this week’s theme, but I grabbed a blue bandanna and we were ready to go! Flint … Read More

Project 52: Headshots

April 20, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “Headshots.” You can tell so much about a dog by looking at his eyes.  Flint, for example, is quite full of mischief. He also turned 6 months old this week.  I can’t believe how quickly my little trouble maker is growing up. Ready to see more of this week’s … Read More

Project 52: A Day In The Life

March 30, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “A Day in the Life.” Flint’s absolute favorite part of our daily life is his afternoon walk in the woods (it’s my favorite part too). I usually leave my camera and my phone at home so I can enjoy time our walk without any distractions. Flint is growing up … Read More

Sonny’s Adventure in the White Mountains

February 27, 2018Dogs in Landscapes

Last spring, Sonny’s mom contacted me to schedule a very special adventure for herself and Sonny.  She wanted to capture her handsome Golden Retriever with the golden fall foliage, so we began planning a trip to the White Mountains.  I knew the perfect spot – a quiet lake with a spectacular view of the Presidential … Read More

Project 52: Silhouette

February 23, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme was “Silhouette.” We’ve had an usually warm week here in New England (it was 70 degrees in February!) so Flint and I have been spending as much time outside as possible.  Wednesday evening, we went over to the cranberry bogs for our silhouette photos. Things didn’t work out quite the … Read More

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
