Photography Workshop at Tower Hill Botanic Garden

F-Stops and Shutter Speeds for Dummies
I'm a recovered f-stop and shutter speed dummy.  It took me years to learn and practice enough to make friends with these basic photography concepts.  By now I've long ago nailed it. 

If you're ready to learn in a fun, less technical atmosphere, join my F-Stops and Shutter Speeds for Dummies workshop at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA on October 19th from 10 AM - 2:30 PM.  We'll use gardening metaphors to learn about f-stops and shutter speeds, and you can expect to be more rooted in your skills by the end of the class.

Rockin' Pet Portraits at Roslindale's Pet Cabaret

Well, the results are in.  The spring portrait event at the Pet Cabaret left us feeling like it was a perfect spring day and we all had beach sand between our toes.  Here are best of the best:
 Handsome Jake awoke early enough for the first portrait session.

 Taz and his followers wanted to get their feet wet right away.

Payton and Penelope proudly hold hands in their favorite jewel-toned parade wear.

For Indie, it was impossible for her to stop smiling, so we chose this more reserved shot.

 Gia relaxed with on a pink beach with a cool pink drink.

Mack had his mind on getting those treats dangled in front of him.

 Otis is a sweetie pie who will sit and stay for a good treat.

Panda thinking about beating Tiger now that Tiger's out of comish for a while.

Giacomo sat for a nanosecond for our first test shot.  He was testy, alright.

Pet Portraits at Roslindale's Pet Cabaret Nov 14 and 21

Join me at the Pet Cabaret in Roslindale on November 14th and 21st for the holiday pet photography event.   I'll be there with Lisa and Lisa and the crew to create a portrait of your pet with your choice of props, like a Charlie Brown-ish Christmas tree and a slippery sled, or we can simply use a white backdrop.  Space is very limited.  The 14th is already full, and there may still be some afternoon spots available on the 21st.  Call the Pet Cabaret (617) 323-7387 for availability.  Here's one of my favorite shots from last year.

Angela Salvucci and Geof Gustavsen Wedding at Cohasset's Red Lion Inn

Angela and Geof celebrated their wedding at the elegant, casual barn at the Red Lion Inn in Cohasset, MA, a perfect match for their style as a couple.  In addition to each other, the couple also loves Cohasset's reverence for history and its seaside location.  They also had the good luck of getting a lovely summer day.  Here are a couple of my faves, and a link to a slideshow of more of the best photography of the day:

Christmas in July in Easton

That's Bernard, Eric, and Bobby expertly fitting "Barn Red" siding to our green-clad house this week.  As a visual gal I've never cared for vinyl siding, but this stuff looks fantastic close-up and from the street, what with being cast with the texture of real cedar shakes—and it NEVER needs painting—whew!

Our contractor, Fred Peacott of Peacott Carpentry, is doing a splendid job bringing designer Dave Packert's work to life.  And a proud plug for plumber Josh Weigel and electrician Bill Schneider, saw mill pro Peter of Shaker Mills for our locally grown flooring, Anderson Fireplace (and Insulation), excavator Tom Driscoll, mason Paul Jewett, plasterer Tom Mannion, the awesome roofer and crane operators who worked so fast I didn't catch their names—but I'll happily look them up them for you—realtor Marlene Wise, the many folks at Easton town hall, and especially our new neighbors, many of whom are spending this hot summer with open windows next door to all this colorful chaos.  Please accept my apologies—and let me know for goodness sake—if I've forgotten to give you a mention.

Thanks to everyone who's poured their blood, sweat, and tears into our home.  Keep up the good work, because we want to actually live here soon!

Carolyn and Chris' Wequassett Inn wedding went off with only the best kind of hitch when they said their vows in front of family and friends on June 26th. With a long history of trips to the Cape as kids, this was a natural venue for the couple, with views of Pleasant Bay and the salty scent of Cape Cod.
