May & June are some of the busiest months of the event calendar here in Boston. So far I've photographed a number of exciting charity events, including the MSPCA Gala, BCRF Hot Pink Party, Rogerson Communities Gala, Boys & Girls Club House Party, Boston Arts Adademy Gala, Make-A-Wish Gala and the Slater Foundation benefit for Operation Homefront. Other events include several in-store cocktail parties plus many corporate and private functions. Thank you to everyone who has gotten together for a photo this season, but beware it's not over yet! To view photos from these events and more, click on the galleries page above.

Working with Make-A-Wish is one of my favorite things to do. A few weeks ago I photographed a little girl whose wish it was to take horseback riding lessons. Make-A-Wish Foundation hooked her up with a beautiful and gentle horse named Simon.
Her expressions were so adorable.
This is Simon's owner who gives lessons in the back of her Wayland home.
Her Mom joined us for a photo.
Hugs for Simon.
** Most photos were taken with the Nikon D3. I'm a long time Canon guy but wanted to try the D3 (which I liked very much!)
Culinary star Patricia Yeo arrived at Boston's Ginger Park last year in a move that she had not planned for, but could not pass up. I stopped by Ginger Park a few weeks ago to photograph Yeo for a magazine piece in the works. Considering she has built quite a name for herself, Yeo still says her place is in the kitchen. "Chefs are not supposed to be photographed!" she insisted.
** Side note, I still have not actually eaten at Ginger Park - Whose in??
