How much is that doggie in the window?

This is Tek. He's an English Bulldog puppy who likes to eat grass, hats, bags, and shoes.

And it's one, two, three strikes you're out....

These are a few pictures of Andy and Alli taken at the season's second Galadium.

Isn't She Lovely?

Although I started out photographing babies, it seems rare these days that I have that opportunity. To tell you the truth, I miss it. However, last week I had the honor of photographing Olivia, who's just six months old. She's not quite sitting up on her own yet, but she rolls over like a champ!

It's Raining, it's Pouring...

Tyler and Kelly's grandparents were in town for a visit so I went over to sneak some family photos. Since it's been raining all week, everyone was full of energy. When kids are this cute, though, it's hard to get a bad picture!

There's a Festival Today

That's a very obscure line from a Livingston Taylor song "Get Out of Bed," which in this weather, it's very hard to do. I was supposed to have a shoot this morning, but as it was scheduled to be outside, we decided to fall back on our raindate instead. It's gross out. I guess you have to take your chances when you live in New England. Unfortunately, the Enka Fair is in town this weekend. The Enka Fair comes around every year, and just about every year it rains. You'd like to think they'd change the date, but they don't. The other day, while they were still setting up, I went over and took some photos. Here they are!

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Julie & Tricia work for Arbonne, the skin care company, and they needed some new photos for their promotional materials. We were able to frolick outside and enjoy the only nice day this week! It was perfect.

Flight of the Bumble Bee

I also took photos of some of the flowers my mother planted around her yard. At least I was able to capture them before the dog digs them all up!

Galladium Arcadium

This past weekend was the Opening Day of the Galladium, a wiffle ball extravaganza of sorts. Since I found myself on the roster (what?!), I only snapped some photos of batting practice. It's clear from the looks on these guys' faces, this is serious stuff! Any game that has its own rock anthem theme song is a force to be reckoned with!

The ceremonial first pitch by Mrs. Galatis...

The new Galladium mascot! You can't beat a cheerleader who cheers for both teams!

It's not all about a fast-paced game of wiffle ball... there is a little time to lounge in the sun.

Stay tuned for the next installment of Galladium Arcadium! Hopefully there will be more players, more home runs, and some slip and slide!

It's A Sunshine Day!

This past weekend, I photographed Madison and her family. We shot at home and then went on an adventure to the Public Gardens where we encountered dogs, squirrels, ducks, pigeons, and other small children. The weather was beautiful, despite the forecast for rain, and we were able to make the most out of the day.

I love this photo of dad and Madison looking at each other through a glass-paned door. The way children reach out and put their palm to yours, even though they can't actually touch you, is awesome.

For some reason, I posted these photos all in black and white. They look good in color, too, but I guess only Madison's family will be able to see those!

Boston in Bloom

Spring is here, despite the recent rain!

A Picture is Worth 1000 Words

Over the past few weeks, I have been organizing a display of my photography to hang in the Coffee Shop at the Winchester Hospital. Finally, everything is up and ready. It was such an exciting opportunity. Plus, if any of the photos sell, 25% of the proceeds go to the Hospital, so that's great, too. And if the photos don't sell, everyone knows what they're getting for Christmas! Since most of the photos on this blog are portraits, I thought I would post some of the photos hanging in the "exhibit."

Early Morning Enka Fair- Winchester, MA

Staples- Portland, ME

Backyard Calla Lily - Silverlake, CA

Suburban Graffiti - Winchester, MA

Movie Marquee - Boston, MA

If anyone has occasion to be in Winchester, feel free to stop by the Coffee Shop, grab a milkshake, and take a look!
