August was SUCH a fantastic month! The weather was beautiful, so much laughter, and amazing opportunities created and found!
MOST of all, we adopted a dog! He’s a 5-month old Black-Mouth Cur from Louisiana, who we met while photographing for the Animal Rescue League of Boston‘s Cape Cod shelter. We named him Cajun, or “Cage”! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll already see he’s fitting in quite well with a long line of quirky and hilarious Hedman mutts :-)
Second most wonderful were the ten days I spent at our other home base (and business base) of Dorset, Vermont. It was so nice to breathe in the Vermont air, and to savor the family, friendships and backdrops of the area. I photographed a wedding, but also local farmers and businesses, and a creative shoot I spontaneously dreamt up on my own. I also made a great new photographer friend as we sat together working at my fav, the Northshire Bookstore!
I hope you had a fantastic month too! Pull on some jeans and get ready for an equally fantastic September.
Photographing one of my favorite subjects – the wines and goodies of Truro Vineyards on Cape Cod! Several great hikes while enjoying our time in Vermont. Meet Cajun, before he even snuggled into my arms!
Another great business, I spent a few mornings in the bakery of Earth Sky Time Farm in Manchester, VT. And I was so excited when several local yoga studios came together to celebrate with over 150 yogis on the Village Green in Hyannis – Happy National Yoga Month this September! My nieces inspired me to call on my friendship-bracelet making skills, and it was just like riding a bike! Used to spend hooouuurs with a pin of embroidery floss tied to my jeans in middle school.
I’m never great about spending on my own massages, but I love gift certificates! And this was probably the deepest massage I’ve ever experienced, at Equinox Resort & Spa in Manchester. After ten days away, I came back to my hydrangea, herbs and veggies picked from the garden! Lastly, a Polaroid glimpse of a very special shoot – a collaboration that came together just perfectly, and you’ll be seeing more very soon!
