I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

Weekly Photo

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy. After narrowing it down to a couple different designs/companies, I contacted both for their pricing list. One was pretty significantly more expensive–almost $2 per invitation more. Which I think all…

When talking to people about photography, I hear one phrase over and over again: Kids and dogs are the hardest subjects to photograph.
I, personally, don’t have this problem with my clients…kids and dogs are among my favorite things to photograph. Maybe it’s because I like to have any excuse…

Weekly Puppies

Last week, Sean and I had our morning coffee on the balcony and watched as the Enterprise shuttle was pulled down the Hudson on a tug boat. It’s on its way to the Intrepid and I can’t wait to see it up close at the museum!

Weekly Coffee



In case you didn’t know, Luna doesn’t handle change very well. She is a creature of habit and any sort of straying from her normal routine throws this dog for a loop. Her veterinarian thinks that she has some sort of brain damage from her experience in Hurricane Katrina…and having known (and loved) her for 3 years, I have to say, the brain damage would explain a lot.

Every work day, Luna goes into Sean’s office to sleep at his feet while he works. It’s part of her routine. When he finishes his coffee and gets up to “head to work” she’s following at his heels.

So on Saturday, when he went to his office to finish up taxes, she was naturally following right behind him. Unfortunately, the nature of taxes required him to lay out all his receipts all over the floor and since his office is essentially a closet, he couldn’t have Luna in there stepping all over everything. So he shut the door on her.

AND SHE COULD NOT HANDLE IT. For about an hour she sat outside his room scratching at the door, whining and bumping her nose into it. Finally, I picked her up and brought her over to my desk where I was working. And she would fall asleep, but after a few minutes, wake up and realize, WAIT, I’M NOT WHERE I’M SUPPOSED TO BE! And then she would go back to Sean’s door. Minutes later, she’d give up and come back to me, proceed to fall asleep and again wake up realizing I’M NOT WHERE I’M SUPPOSED TO BE! And so this circle continued over and over all day long.

This frustrated face I captured was a weird mixture of a yawn and a howl. And the noise was as obnoxious as her face.
