Really excited that I'll be featured on Channel 5 news magazine show, Chronicle today. I went to Baypath Humane Society where I took some fun photos as part of the interview. I got to talk about my Black Dogs Project which will be a book this fall and was able to also promote Baypath and Black Dog Rescues. Check it out. It will be on tonight. Have a great weekend.

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 the out takes, I can really see how happy he is in his pet portrait.

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 some of my best in Boston in those gardens. This spring, I hope to be…

When I first started shooting for clients, I put up a web gallery and hoped they would buy all the photos they wanted. That didn't work because most people don't know what they wanted. More accurately, most people don't know what's possible. When I work with my clients all over the Boston area, I now hand hold them through every part. I want to know what they are passionate about,…

Sophia is available for adoption at Baypath Rescue in Hopkinton. I got to spend a little time with her and she is the nicest girl. She REALLY wanted me to take her on a long walk. I would have walked her right home if Toby would let me get another dog. If you are looking for another dog,  you should come by and say hi.

Jen, who is an amazing wedding photographer can't get good photos of her fur children so she hires me. She originally wanted to add a dash of yellow to the photo so we tried adding props but we ended up not using any of them. They are now proudly…
