Several months ago, after the summer shoot with Jack and Nicky, Rhonda, her friend Julia, and I got together for dinner at Yard House to gab about our animals. Julia runs special events for the MSPCA at Nevins Farm – which means she is an all around awesome human.Read More
When I photographed her in early October last year, Libby was a energy-packed 3.5 month old Australian Shepherd...and she is SO beautiful.
And I certainly wasn't the first to think so. Apparently, the little lady has already been featured in an ad by Gap! This pup is going places. :DRead More
I met Buddy this past September after his mom Kerri messaged me saying she had won a photo session in a raffle. YAY!
Kerri is the owner of the lovely dog training company I'm the Cheese, and she's been a dog lover for years. For her, Buddy is the one who started it all. Here is the story in her own words:Read More
Fuzzy's mom reached out to me a month or so ago about getting some photos done of her SWEET LITTLE FUZZ.
I had no idea that his name would fit him so absolutely perfectly, but just look at him!
Fuzzy is also a part of the Alice in Wonderland Guinea Pig calendar project. As you can see, he is the world's most adorable Jabberwock.
Jabberwocky wings crafted by Chimæric, everything else made by me!Read More
A few months ago, my little furry friend Pumpkin lost her love Poppy. This broke my heart because Poppy was one of the sweetest angels to have ever graced this planet. So Pumpkin's mom, Abbie, did what every sweet fur-mom would do.
She adopted some more friends for Pumpkin: Peanut and Petunia.Read More
In late summer of this year, I decided that the time had come to actually begin working on my guinea pig calendar project, and the theme was going to be Alice in Wonderland.Read More
I got to hang out with two cheeky horses this past Monday, Dascha, aka THE QUEEN and Hobbit, who was equally snarky. Poor things put up with me putting a camera in their face, and responded with some serious sass.Read More
I first met Wedgwood and Boadicea at the Spring Pignic a couple of years ago, and instantly fell in love with their furry noses. When I mentioned to their parent, Sally, that I would be interested in coming to photograph them in an adorable setting, she said oh yes and we set up a time.Read More
When I first met Valentina the pigaroo at the Boston Spring Pignic this past June, I was instantly drawn to her. When I found out that she had four pigaroo sisters, I insisted that all of them needed to come for a photo shoot.
And they DID!Read More
A few weeks ago I got a delightful Facebook message that read something along the lines of, "My girlfriend's birthday is next month and since our little darlings are getting on in age I figured the best present for her would be a lovely photo of our ratty rats. Any interest?"
Um, do you know me? Yes, absolutely yes. Never any question, yes.Read More
Yesterday I got the chance to photograph one of my favorite pigaroos in New England: Jack Pawkins. I met Jack last year for our Thankspigging photoshoot, and he was such a little babe.Read More
Sitting down to write this is undoubtedly one of the hardest things I've ever done. Something so small shouldn't have this much impact on your life right?
When Ginger came into my life, he changed everything.Read More
Twice now I have helped a cat-loving someone relocate their life to a different state. The first time it was the eponymous cat Stanley, who continues to thrive in Portland, OR with the darling Caroline. This time it was the distinguished 13 year old tuxedo cat Sebastian and his dear owner Sierra.Read More
Several weeks ago I received a photo inquiry from Henry's mom, Sherri. She told me that she adopted him from the PetSmart shelter 12 years ago, and that Henry also had a rare and fatal disease known as Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), and didn't have much time left.
My heart broke, I immediately found a spot in my schedule (no brainer) that worked for both of us in late April.Read More
"If there ever comes a day when can't be together, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever." - A.A. Milne
The first time I saw her I knew she was special. Her spiky red and white and beige fur was sticking up in a thousand directions, and her sour expression made her look more porcupine than pig. They told me her name was Cinnamon though she was 6 months old (but weren't quite sure) and was the kind of pig who would never stop talking.Read More
I saw them again at the Fall Pignic, and Doug mentioned that he had an older pup named Tahoe that he would love for me to photograph. At first I was merely curious, that is until he told me that Tahoe was a 9 year old Golden.Read More
Perfection has little to do with beauty...in fact, it can easily be argued that it's the imperfections, the unique attributes of a being that make it noticeable, that make it admirable...
That make it beautiful.
I met and fell in love with a cat a couple weeks ago when I was photographing and him and his fur-moms for their Christmas card. When I came into the house, he was naturally terrified of me...and sprinted up to the upstairs bedroom to cower beneath the bed. I wasn't offended. I'm 12 times his size.Read More
"This is my baby. His name is Chase. Chase is silly, joyous, cuddly, gentle and kind. He is more than a dog. Chase is our family. He is better than any person I have ever met. I love that these pictures show him with the big goofy smile that wakes me up every morning, with that waggy tongue that licks my face clean to start the day, and yes then I go wash it. He has brought such happiness to our life, more than he could possibly know. But that's his job. He's just a dog."Read More
"Try to be like the turtle -- at ease in your own shell..." - Bill Copeland
So last week we left you wondering what the size and shape of the turtles' new digs would be. Well, the wait is over. The materials arrived, coffee tables were purchased, various and sundry decorative (and practical) items were installed. It was like HGTV Red Eared Slider Style.Read More
The weekend of June 5, 6, and 7 Salem Pet Photo joined up with Creative Salem for the 2015 Salem Arts Festival.
