Book Release event

Things have been really busy with the Black Dogs Project because we are getting so close to the book release date. Well, it’s actually not out till September but I’ve been working on this for so long that I’m so excited that it’s finally coming close. Some really great things have been happening. I’ve gotten some…

Photo Friday – My boys

My boys mean everything to me. Being a dad has been full of really great days and a few bad ones. Everyday has had a purpose and allows me to focus on what is really important. I love photographing pets and the challenge involved and much of that is due to my whole family. Toby…

Photo Friday – Family

Fun family photos in the studio. Funny how friends are made. My son’s friend in preschool loves to play together. They do play dates all the time so I get to spend lots of time with her mom. She is also self employed and working out the process of working and family. It can be…

helping others

I’ve been trying to do my best to keep busy but I also want to be able to help out where I can. I got an email from one of the black dog owners who is in the process of helping an abandoned dog find a forever home. Annabelle was a dog that was abandoned…

Grumpy face

That is where I got my start. Well, after some miserable experiences photographing weddings, I did get to spend time photographing friends and family and…

Photo Friday – Chance

I photographed Chance in my studio almost a year ago for the Black Dogs Project. I often go back and look at all the photos for this project again to remember the dogs and their owners. Chance is one of those black labs that has so much personality. I loved photographing him. Even looking through…

Spring photo shoots

It’s spring and I’m itching to get outside for photo shoots as all the fresh growth of flowers and trees show off their amazing spring colors. One of my favorite spring photo shoots was of Kiah in the Boston Arboretum in Jamaica Plain. There is no shortage of beautiful spaces to shoot there and I’ve done…
