Photographer Kim Roderiques specializes in portraiture as well as documenting private and public social events. Her previous book Dogs on Cape Cod featured a delightful collection of color photographs of dogs frolicking against a backdrop of the Cape. Her photography has also appeared in national magazines and been exhibited in the Boston area. Roderiques has recently co-authored a children’s book: Max and Charlie Help a Hero; a photography and storybook with a clever technique of placing the illustrations over the images.
