Portrait: Shannon, Ton Sai, Thailand

This past February I escaped the “Polar Vortex” and fled to Thailand with some close friends for some sun, fun, great food and portraits. They were kind enough to humor me while I chased the light and made some beautiful portraits. I will roll out a few new images from Thailand in the coming days, so stay tuned!

Old Dogs – Hera

Hera is a beautiful 9-year-old mutt. Her owner Matt suspects she is a pitbull/shepherd mix, while others think there might be a dingo in there somewhere. She was a great subject to photograph, when she didn’t have her back to the camera.

PORTRAIT: MONICA

Monica and I journeyed up to Montreal in December for our anniversary and stayed at the Le Meridien, a boutique hotel on Sherbrooke Ouest.  I’ve taken numerous pictures of Monica all over the world, but those always had an air of adventure to them, and were done with minimal equipment. Our room at Le Meridien was the perfect setting for a more stylized portrait, with funky wallpapers and a hanging disco ball lamp. These are the first (and my favorites) of a few more to come!

Old Dogs – Gina

Gina is a thirteen-year-old poodle, now officially retired from a lifetime career as a therapy dog for the elderly. We had to wrangle her a bit when she went off-leash in the studio; but because of her therapy training, the leash meant business and she magically became obedient when it went on. These are my favorites from the shoot. I love the stately poodle profile!

Sully is a 16 year old farm dog who spends most of his time down by the Intervale farm in Winooski.
