Last Sunday, I journeyed up to one of my absolute favorite areas of Boston – the South End – to photograph Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Fitz!

As with so many dogs, Fitz wasn’t entirely into the whole “sit, stay” thing for the camera. We explored his neighborhood and favorite park, chased the ball and other dog friends around, but the most we could get him to really chill out was in his mom and dad’s arms! And that’s just fine with me – I love when owners are part of the photo process!

It was such a beautiful fall morning in the city! Just a tiny bit of foliage starting, and a crisp breeze in the air. The doors were still open at the infamous Polka Dog Bakery, though, and of course we stopped in!

Fitz also got to sit on the Eames chair that’s normally off-limits to him… you could tell from his face that he was not at all sure what was going on with this photographic evidence!

Fitz, you are sitting pretty with those fantastic parents of yours and an excellent neighborhood for a dog to grow up! Thanks for sharing your Sunday morning with me!

    Carol - Brilliant photographs, you capture emotion so well. Love the expressions on Fitz’s face. Oh how I wish you were in Australia to come photograph our pups! Just lovely.

I can’t even tell you what an amazing photo session this was, but I’m pretty sure the photos will convey it all! I admittedly have an incredible job, but hopping on a sailboat around Boston Harbor with two wonderful couples and their dogs is one of those top-notch days for sure!

We met up at Boston Sailing Center on a foggy Saturday morning that turned into blue skies and sunshine after a few mimosas on board!


Pompy was ready to ride with his fancy life jacket and ears flapping in the breeze!


Milo stuck a little closer to Mom and Dad for the ride, but still happy to be on the water with his pals!


The four “humans” were so much fun to hang with, and truly happy to be together in this time and place! It’s always wonderful to see such great friendships, and I particularly love knowing that our City of Boston is creating lifelong memories for others!

The blue skies appeared just as we turned back in to the harbor, and it made for some magical photos for sure!

This was definitely a day I will never forget, and an amazing group of friends and dogs to share the morning with.

Happy sailing!


Chad and Jess are wonderful friends of ours. We have shared such great Cape Cod memories of beach and boat and of course DOGS!

Their beautiful Saint Bernard Lucy passed away from a bone cancer this fall. It’s times like these when I’m so grateful for the gift I’m able to give to my friends, and to all dog lovers who have to suffer through this. It’s one of the saddest times, but our lives are so much better for having them in it!

Lucy will be missed and remembered for decades to come. Such a sweetheart, with an amazingly peaceful demeanor. Love you guys!

    Deb - Stacey, you have done an amazing job of capturing the character of Lucy which I can see her eyes. These photogs are gorgeous and sure your friends will cherish them forever. How fortunate you are to be able to give this beautiful gift. :)
