Is there anything funnier than a dog in a costume…I don’t think so. The other day we did some Haloween pet and baby photography. I love my job! Jessica Sutton’s pup Oscar made for a great Waldo.

My yesterday was pretty blah, so I pulled some photos to brighten my day. I took these a few years ago right at Halloween in beautiful Cohasset, MA. The town is a quintessential, gorgeous New England fishing town and was also the shooting location for The Witches of Eastwick. Think I am going to have to find and watch that movie this week.
Peace out for today.

As I discovered last year, Halloween on Beacon Hill is kind of a big deal. The streets are closed to cars, swarms of children are out trick or treating and each house tries to out do the next with spooky decorations, pumpkins, lights and costumes. One house was even projecting old black and white horror movies, which now seem pretty tame, fun and kitchy.
I had so much fun walking around with our friends and their 18 month old that I forgot to take many photos, but here are a few. Just to give you feel for the night.

This past weekend I did lots of shooting, in and around Boston. Beacon Hill, graveyards, Bruins game, Halloween festivities and a trip down to the south shore. My photos are all kind of all over the place, but it was a great weekend to shoot. I would love your thoughts and feed back on the shots. Let me know what you think…the good and not so good.
Eve of Halloween, walking around Beacon Hill
Beautiful and festive window boxes
I am learning fabulous window boxes are a Beacon Hill must!
The streets of Beacon Hill are closed to cars from 5-9pm on Halloween and the place is just teaming with families trick or treating. As our friend described the scene…it is Mardi Gras for children. So true.
The Boston Public Garden
Eve of Halloween, Ghost Tour
Walking through 200 year old graveyards at night (especially on the eve of Halloween) made for a pretty neat and spooky experience. Eventhough the night shots were quite challenging, it just makes me want to work on my night shots even more.
Cemetery in the North End
Did you know that the Boston strangler’s last victim lived and was killed in the apartment right above The Paramount on Charles Street? And I thought they were just known for their delicious omelettes. We heard that and many other stories of Boston on the Ghost and Gravestones tour. It was great fun.
We went to the afternoon Bruins hockey game (probably only the 2nd or 3rd hockey game I have been to in my life), and had a great time looking at all the crazy Bruins fans dresses up for Halloween…and perhaps some dressed as the would for any Bruins game.
Pucks & Prada’s
With the outside temperature reaching the mid 70’s my Prada wedges had a nice time at the game too. I got them at my favorite consignment shops in Atlanta, Labels Resale Boutique. I have gotten some ridiculous finds there.
On Beacon Hill
The streets were packed and the decorations, out of this world. A group of us walked around with dogs, babies and wine to take in the scene.
Perfect time to practice night shots.
All Saints’ Day – Cohasset
The next day my hubby and I took a drive down to Cohasset to see the south shore and visit with some of his family. The drive was lovely and Cohasset is this ridiculously picturesque Massachusetts coastal town.
Darling bistro and place for lunch, The Red Lion Inn and Restaurant.
Seriously, this town is out of a movie, “Cue vintage, orange, VW bus.”
Harbor and beach
Whew. Enough for now. Off to Maine this weekend to visit my sister and shoot, shoot, shoot. It is so beautiful up there.

It was a busy week this week, so I am so excited to be staying in Boston for the weekend. We have some fun Halloween stuff planned and also lots of relaxing and enjoying Boston in the Fall. They really go all out here. The decorations, the colors, the crisp air and smell of leaves, Fall is New England’s time to shine. Growing up in the south, spring was the season bursting with color, so it is fun to embrace the fall.
Hordes of Gourds
Look at these amazing gourds I found at the little market down the street.
They are almost alien with all their warts and growths, and the saturated shades of orange, yellow and green are to die for.

In Pennsylvania last weekend
A sea of yellow.
We are going on the Boston Ghost Tour tonight (Spooooooky!) and spending Halloween afternoon and evening in Beacon Hill with friends. It is suppose to be great fun. Apparently the neighborhood becomes one big block party with the streets closed to cars and trick or treaters everywhere. Can’t wait.
