Everything seemed so parched. I took this series and used a blue filter to give it a unifying mood. All prints are for sale and are printed on archival papers. All images © Miranda Loud 2015.

A Shaggy, Fuzzy and Spiky Christmas Photoshoot! https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2015/12/a-shaggy-fuzzy-and-spiky-christmas-photoshoot One of my favorite things about photographing animals is that they really do bring joy, not only to me with their directness and their playfulness and different personalities, but that they really do bring a lasting joy to their guardians. This was a recent favorite session, just in time for under the tree...

Headshots with Bradley Fugate https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2015/11/headshots-with-bradley-fugate One of the favorite parts of my job as a photographer and videographer is working with artists like Brad who are already so comfortable as performers. I love the collaborative process of bringing out the different facets of each person's personality and giving people time and space to really play. Stay tuned for the short video interview I did with Brad about teaching and his particular passion for making Japanese art song more accessible for students in the U.S.

Sanctuary in the mountains near Fort Collins. I interviewed Michelle Proulx who runs the sanctuary and has a powerful understanding of the wolves. They all have great stories. I will be adding more from her interview in addition to this video which I just finished yesterday. Enjoy!

Gathering these multimedia stories for the project I started a couple of years ago is so heart-affirming for me. I enjoy everything about it - finding the people to interview, meeting them, meeting their animals, taking the photographs and the video, deciding how to hone the story in the audio editing. I hope you enjoy this one!

Casey lives at the foothills of the Rockies and spoke to me about her connection with her new shire stallion William. Casey knows her horses well, but she is especially fond of William, whom she says is so sensitive to her emotions and responds to her therapeutic touch when he is anxious. One of many stories for the One Language Project which explores the common emotional language we share with other species and asks "what would the world be like if humans viewed other species as someones instead of somethings? Can we become better stewards through seeing our commonality?"

It was so fortuitous meeting Amy and Wyatt and staying on their farm while on my trip to Denver for the opening of the One Language Project at the Morris Animal Foundation. Her exuberance about her dog Henry and the story she tells is a powerful example of how animals help us better understand ourselves and how important our bonds with other species can be to the quality of our lives.

When we see ourselves as sharing emotions with other species, the world becomes so much richer and full of other types of knowing.

While I was in Colorado I did six interviews. Here is one about a man and his favorite hawk which he raised since birth.

How fun to hang out with these and many other dogs last week. The dogwalkers at the park are a cool bunch, too, of course. Animal photography is not for the easily-embarrassed. Squeaky toys, dog slobber, camera kisses, it's all part of a day's work.

Haifa and Coal - Two Dogs with a Lot of Soul https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2014/10/haifa-and-coal---two-dogs-with-a-lot-of-soul Haifa and Coal are rescue dogs who have finally found their forever home with a warm and active family. Haifa was used in breeding in Brazil and Coal was adopted just a few months ago from Big Fluffy Dog Rescue in Tennessee. During the photoshoot, their devotion to their family was so poignant, especially since Haifa is a senior dog. Coal was trying hard to please everyone as we coaxed him with treats to stay still for a few seconds. You can read all about them and their history by their owner who has a blog too. http://whatcouldgo.blogspot.com.br/2014/09/pitch-black-weston-ma.html

Animal Art Show Opening This Friday! https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2014/9/animal-art-show-opening-this-friday GeorgeGeorge I'm excited to be included in this Animal Art Exhibit at Belmont Gallery with a few of my animal portraits for sale among so many wonderful artists' works depicting animals in various media.

September 14 @ 8:00 am - October 17 @ 5:00 pm

Wonderfully diverse, thought-provoking, fun exhibit

Animals — from beasts of prey to household pets — have been a staple of artistic expression since cave painting at the very dawn of humanity. Whether as totems, allegory, decoration, or simply for their “fearsome symmetry,” animals have been a presence in the works of history’s greatest masters from DaVinci’s horse studies, through Rousseau’s primitive wildlife, to Picasso’s bull fetish. Yet, the role of animals in art is often overlooked.We have terms for ‘portraits,’ ‘landscapes.’ and ’‘still lives’, but none for art with animal subjects. ‘Animal Art’ gets no respect.

Belmont Gallery of Art opens its tenth anniversary season with a long overdue appreciation of Animals in Art, featuring animal artworks in a variety of media — painting, sculpture, photography collage, fabric art — selected by jurors and veterinarians, Dr. Suzanne Kay and Dr. Dawn Binder, from Belmont’s Cushing Square Veterinary Clinic.

The menagerie is a ‘must-see” for art lovers and animal lovers of all ages. And visitors can help homeless and abused pets at the same time. Ten percent of all sales of artwork will be donated to the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals-Angell to support its mission to find loving families for abandoned and mistreated pets.

Opening Reception: September 19, 5 – 8 pm
Duration of Show: September 14 – October 17. • Hours:  Thursday and Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Sunday 1 – 4 p.m.

Two Upcoming Events You Won't Want to Miss! https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2014/9/two-upcoming-events-you-wont-want-to-miss 10498532_10152638195112147_8989465461928425649_o10498532_10152638195112147_8989465461928425649_o I am looking forward to being part of a fun panel of artists and media experts talking about marketing your work as an artist. Tonight! 

“You Made It – Now Sell It! Tips and Tricks for Marketing Your Work,” the third in a series of four free panels on creativity and the lives of artists 

7 PM Goodnow Library, 21 Concord Road in Sudbury, September 10, moderated by author Erica Ferencik.

First comes creation, then comes the marketplace. How does an artist present and market their wares? Is the “Rule of Seven” still true: do prospective buyers need to hear about your product seven times in order to push the “buy button? Read about it from key “influencers” on social media? Think about it: why did you buy that last book/chair/painting/song?

 In this lively panel, authors and performers Randy Ross andJudah Leblang, master furniture designer Ray Bachand of 60 Nobscot home, singer and photographer Miranda Loud, and artists’ agent and media mogul Sabrina Velandry will answer questions such as: What are the best ways to get the word out about your work? What’s involved in creating a Kickstarter or other crowdsourcing campaign? How can I make the most sales without breaking the marketing bank?

Refreshments will be served.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Sudbury Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.


and then in the studio tomorrow night, September 11, starting at 7 PM  144 Moody Street, Building 18, Waltham. Info: 617.519.3380. Free. 

Screening of The Decisive Moment by Henri-Cartier Bresson followed by In No Great Hurry, an award-winning documentary about the life of street and fashion photography Saul Leiter.

One Morning in Maine, With Spot the Beagle https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2014/8/one-morning-in-maine-with-spot-the-beagle Spot is a service dog who normally follows her person as she takes photographs, but today was Spot's moment to be the focus of attention. She was more attuned than almost any other dog I have ever worked with to exactly what we wanted her to do, whether it was to sit, move here, look up, sniff the flowers, stand on the step. Her devotion to Deedie who was so gentle and encouraging made me want to explore their bond more deeply at another time for the One Language Project. I'm sure there are many stories to bring Spot's personality to vivid color. Stay tuned for updates to this post!

A Brief Portrait of Abbie https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2014/8/a-brief-portrait-of-abbie As I was driving through the Maine town of Wiscasset on my way back to Boston, I decided to stop off for a bite to eat. I passed Abbie sitting majestically on the stoop of her owner's store and was fascinated with how self-composed she was. She looked at me only once the entire time I photographed her, with her expressions constantly changing due to the dog activity on the opposite side of the street. Apparently she is used to being photographed. At that moment, she seemed to represent the essence of canine and the essence of guardianship. Seen from a certain angle she might have looked like the sphynx.

Rockland Lobster Festival 2014 https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2014/8/rockland-lobster-festival-2014 This fair is an old-time carnival with all the rides (none of the scary ones), a beautiful ferris wheel, cotton candy, fried dough, etc., arts and crafts and a soundstage with music. I carefully avoided the lobster steaming area, with its industrial steamers.

A few Images from Maine Media Workshop Week Part ! https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2014/7/cinematic-documentary-and-images-from-maine Whenever I can make it happen, I like to come to Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, Maine for a little shot in the arm artistically, creatively and socially. The creative energy and output in this sleepy enclave on the coast has already stimulated me for months ahead. Here are a few of the images from the first few days so far...

Remi's Day https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2014/5/remis-day One of the shoots I enjoyed the most was with Remi and Elyse a couple of weeks ago. I'm putting together a custom book of Remi's Day which will include captions, quotes, reflections by Elyse on how Remi has changed her life, as well as line drawings and watercolors of Remi. I believe so strongly that there is nothing quite like a large beautifully-printed book to showcase the story you want to share - in both words and photographs.


Here are a few of the spreads from the book before I have added the drawings and text. Stay tuned!

Recent Portrait Sessions Redux https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2014/5/recent-portrait-sessions-redux _K1C4145-Edit_K1C4145-Edit One of the reasons I love being a portrait photographer is that it brings me in contact with fascinating people -- often artists, authors, entrepreneurs, musicians. We all wear many hats and have different faces we want to present, whether it is photos for a dating site, keepsake portraits to give family members, candid shots that we can't take ourselves as workable "selfies", professional portraits for linkedin, etc. Many people will say they want a photo for a specific purpose but come away with a gallery that can be used in more diverse ways.

Part of the fun of a session is discovering the many sides of the person I am working with and making sure they have the images they need as well as more than what they expected. My hope is always that clients will see their images and feel truly seen at their best. These are a few of the wonderful people I have worked with recently.

Ellie and Rachel and the Hedgehog https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2014/5/ellie-and-rachel-and-the-hedgehog Last weekend I did a photoshoot with Rachel and her adorable dog Ellie. Here are some of the photos from the session, along with Rachel's writings about Ellie. Enjoy!

1.       I got Ellie when I first moved down to Florida. I was at a flea market and had no intention of getting a dog but we met and I held her and she wrapped her paws around my hand and we have been in love ever since!

2.       Ellie loves her treats and cookies but she is also a very healthy eater…she loves cooked baby carrots, mango, red pepper, cantaloupe, etc. Her favorite time of the night is when I make her daddy’s sandwich for the next day…she loves to get pieces of deli meat (honey maple turkey in particular)

3.       Ellie loves to go for walks but sometimes if we are going for a long walk she goes in her carriage (its like a baby carriage but for puppies). She loves her carriage, she just lays down and watches out her window.

4.       Last year for her 2nd birthday we threw a huge party and all the dogs from our building came. There were about 20 dogs and we had treats, pupcakes and goodie bags. She got SO MANY presents…definitely a very popular girl! We are planning another party for her third birthday in June.

5.       Ellie loves traveling. When I moved back from Florida we drove my car back, Ellie slept the ENTIRE way! She has also been on a plane and a boat.

6.       Her best friend is Goldie, she is a little white maltipoo. They can and will wrestle for hours whenever they are together.

7.       Ellie has 2 “day” beds that she will sleep on when no one is home but at night, she sleep with me and matt. She enjoys sleeping sideways so even though she is only 8 pounds, she somehow manages to take up the most space!

8.       Ellie is my first dog EVER and she is really the best dog ever. She has never chewed up anything and she is always up for whatever I want to do…whether it’s a nap, a walk, a car ride, etc

9.       She’s not a big fan of kids or big dogs (she prefers little fluffy dogs). The only time she barks is if she sees either one.

10.   Ellie has 2 best toys, Muffy the earmuff wearing hedgehog and her donut. Everyday I roll donut down the hallway in our building…she runs after it so fast that she can only chase it 2 times before she gets too tired!

11.   Ellie has helped me to become more outgoing. Before I had her I was very shy but now, everyone wants to talk to me because she is so cute. She has really helped me be able to talk to anyone!

12.   Ellie is always well accessorized. She always has a bow and beautiful collars…is she an ambassador for The Proper Puppy.

Do you know a child with a "lovie"? https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2013/8/do-you-know-a-child-with-a-lovie _K1C8658-Edit I was in one of my favorite spots this summer with my nephews in northern Maine, and I met someone who suggested I photograph children, small, medium and full-grown, with their lovies, or stuffed animal/blanket/totem companions. Here are a few of some very precious lovies to some very special little boys in my life. Panda and Flumbo are the essential bedmates with all the answers and all the love to make up for anything that goes missing during the day...

I'm looking forward to putting together the audio slideshow and the album and to seeing this beautiful couple flourish in the world with all the healing work they do.

The Power of Photography to Change the World https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2013/3/the-power-of-photography-to-change-the-world kctest_(1_of_2)

Recent Portrait of Katherine Collins, Founder of Honeybee Capital


This morning, the first day of a soon-to-be very active Orpheus Photography blog (happy dance), I started reading my favorite photographer industry mag, PDN, Photo District News. Inside was a story about three women who decided to use photography and video to spread awareness of the violence against women that occurs every day across the globe. According to the World Bank Group, more women aged 15-44 die at the hands of men they love than are harmed or die from cancer. The website for their project is http://www.causeofdeathwoman.com

As a photographer who wants to not only create beautiful and powerful work for clients but exhibit more universal projects, I was especially inspired by the photographers' idea to allow a downloadable PDF of printable images so that anyone moved by the issues could create an exhibit anywhere they could, like their workplace or in a local shelter.

Last week I had so much fun collaborating on a photoshoot in the studio and outside with Katherine Collins, a fellow Wellesley classmate and leader in new forms of investing that use nature as a balance. You can hear her describe her work here:
