Dog photography on FILM, glorious FILM.

You get a gallery this time because I am being greedy and uploading all of my favorites.

I absolutely love, love, love working with film in the darkroom. It’s so high-stakes (you screw up any one of the thirty steps between opening the film canister and printing the photo and it’s gone forever – no starting over, no digital recovery), and you have to embrace everything that comes along with it – ancient camera, weird film batches, flaring and vignetting from old glass. It’s a surprise every single time, and I am pushing very hard to get a keeper rate of 10-20% when all is said and done. But when it does work, there’s absolutely nothing else that gives you the same feeling.

These are bits and pieces from our session with Tai at the Arboretum, our session with Gypsy and Billy at the DeCordova Museum, and my very own backyard with Meri and Daisy P. Forgive the dust from the filthy college negative scanner!

More of Gypsy and Billy’s dog photography session at the DeCordova Museum

I feel like I should have a long narrative about this shoot, but the fact was it can be summed up in a few words: Gypsy is awesome…

Billy is awesome…

The light was so beautiful it made my heart hurt…And Gypsy is a toy phenom, holy heck.

Aren’t dogs incredible? I feel like every tiny part of them is so deliberate and perfect; it all needs to be celebrated.

Tongues are awesome.

Snuggles are awesome.

Kisses are awesome.

Dogs able to mysteriously scale enormous cliffs and then laugh at you are awesome.

The end.

Until I do it again! (Their owner has promised, and I can hardly wait – imagine this with actual foliage!)

Dog photo session sneak peek: Gypsy and Billy at the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park!

I am still pulling photos off the card on this one – hot off the presses, because we just did this session yesterday!

Gypsy is a feminine Aussie mix, and Billy is a champion Smooth Collie. Both of them are enjoying their second and most important careers – as service dogs for their amazing owner.

The whole session was magical and packed with emotion – beautiful dogs, important work, strong owner, and great light to bless the whole thing.

More (and of Gypsy being extremely silly) to come!

Fantastic dog photo session: Tai at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston!

Last week I had the great fun of meeting Tai, a gorgeous and adventurous globe-trotting Cardigan, at the wonderful Arnold Arboretum in Boston.

Tai is a true gentleman, a twelve-year-old who, his owner informed me, has been (justifiably) called “The Mayor of the Dog Park.”

Well, maybe he’s not dignified ALL the time.

This is a boy who LOVES HIS BALL – he is the retrieving-est Cardi I’ve ever seen.

But this is a boy with TASTE: It’s got to be only one particular type of ball. When his mom heard it had been discontinued, she stockpiled them so he has his best buddy for years to come.

That’s the kind of story I heard a lot as we walked around and talked, which is my favorite part of this (I get to hike around with fabulous dog people and talk about their amazing dog for two hours? Yes please!). It’s obvious that his mom just adores him, and it’s equally obvious that he thinks she hung the moon.

Thank you so much for a GREAT day, Tai!

First snow outtakes (because I am a bad, bad mother)

Sweetie, your hair is in your face. Just shake it back.

If you fling your head back, that’ll do it.

OK, almost!

Yep, got it.

Oh, it’s all in your face again. Can you just…?

A little more.

OK, that’s perfect! I’m done.

Wait, why are you mad at me?

The blanket is there for a reason – I can run back into the house and hide before she can get it off and catch up to me.

The first snow

We’re going to ignore the fact that we had that freak snow and ice storm in October that knocked out power for days and forced me to let my dogs poop next to my file cabinet, and call this the first snow of winter.

We’re big fans of snow here, as long as it behaves well – doesn’t get so deep that Doug comes in moaning about aneurisms and hernias, and makes the trees look pretty.

It also gives us a chance to measure how long Honour’s hair has gotten this year. That’s after I cut six inches off last week, by the way.

But most of all, it gives me the chance to watch Godric’s ears blow in the cold wind.

Once dusk fell, we got out the Insanely Cheap Ikea Tea Lights (R) and made up for all the snow we haven’t had for the last three months.

Good night, everybody – hope you had just as nice a day as we did.
