We absolutely adore Jesse Freidin & his work! He caught our eye with the Doggie Gaga Project last year & since we’re both in San Francisco, we’ve had the pleasure of meeting up with him and were even lucky enough to get to see him in action. Jesse photographed Tallulah for a series he was doing for The Impossible Project, and was able to capture her quirky personality with such ease. Can someone say dog-photography-whisperer?! I was absolutely blown away by the 3 final images & in my favorite of the trio (pictured above), love her pensive, almost stoic, expression.
Adding a Freidin original is most appropriate at any time of the year, but there’s no time like the present! Speaking of presents…a session with Freidin would be a fantastic holiday gift for anyone on your list smitten with his or her pup. Act fast! If you schedule a 2012 session before 12/15, save $500 on prints.
Sick of feeling like a hamster on a wheel, I recently took some time off work in a valiant attempt to organize my life, and was so excited to “have at” my seemingly perpetual to-do list. First up, the apartment! Once MY closet was cleaned out, I took a look at Tallulah’s stuff & realized that all her Blueblood leashes + collars needed a chic way to be displayed (and, you know, to show-off how many matchy-matchy sets she has). Plus, as with most things, it’s usually easier to find something when kept in an organized manner. After checking out Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, AND the Container Store without finding anything exciting, I was almost ready to just throw up some standard hooks and call it a day. Quick stop at Anthropologie to buy a birthday gift for a friend & hellllllo inspiration!
As far as the dog hooks go, they have Frenchie, Bernard & Scottie breeds, but also have a ton of other aesthetic options to match almost any décor. I obviously needed more than 1, so decided to mix it up. A ‘T’ alphabet hook for ‘Tallulah’, the ‘Curious Frenchie’, and the ceramic rose ‘Petal’ hook for Tallulah’s middle name, ‘Rose’, seemed like a fitting combo. They were super easy to install in my foyer & have made it so easy to grab whichever set seems most appropriate when it’s time for a walk. Now if only I could organize my shoes that easily!
