A creative outlet while on vacation

I’m on vacation. I’m away from everything I normally do and see and am moving at a much slower pace.  It’s very nice.  It was nerve racking coming up to this vacation because it could have gone bad in many different ways.  My wife and I are driving with our 2 kids (under 3) about…

Flow Dog day

Last weekend, I worked with a small company called Flow Dog.  They specialize in rehabilitation therapy for dogs of all types. Some dogs come for sports training, and others come because of an injury or post surgery.  I contacted them to help them create some great photos for their business.  After meeting with Chris, the…

Whisker Walk 2011

This was my second year at Whisker Walk and it was a huge success.  Thousands of people and dogs showed up and everyone I met was as nice as could be.  The weather was great, the turn out was HUGE. All the dogs were on such good behavior too.  You couldn’t have asked for a…

Planning our road trip

Every year we go south to a small town outside Knoxville TN.  My parents moved there a few years ago and since flying with the whole family is so difficult and expensive, we now drive.  It’s a longer trip but much more fun.  Geoffrey has been fascinated by numbers ever since he could count to…

Can I shoot you and your dog?

Baby photos go better in pairs

My friends just brought home their new boy and are very excited to have a new baby in the house.  It’s always a crazy time and Alex, their oldest, is dealing with all the changes well.  He’s even getting some extra benefits of having grandparents visiting and doting over him.  They asked me to come…

Isaac after bath

I love this picture. I took it last summer  at Grandma’s house. The narrow focus and the expressions on everyone’s faces are just so full of love.  I was digging through a limited number of photos I’ve got on my laptop (the main collection is at home on my drobo), and I  paused on this…

Stow Minutemen

Every Patriots Day, the Stow Minutemen walk from Stow to Concord and their route walks right by my house.  The drums, fifes, and muskets are going off and I can hear them coming from 1/2 mile away.  That great except that they walk by my house before 6am.  Rachel woke me saying, “Listen, Listen, the…
