The Frog Whisperer: Portraits & Stories
ISBN-13: 978-1682033487


Lisa Cuchara fell head-over-heels in love with frogs the first time she and her photographer husband Tom were invited to photograph a red-eyed tree frog. Before long, the couple was clearing out their space in their home for terrariums full of well-loved amphibians! As it turned out, Lisa’s uncanny ability to put frogs at ease set the couple on a new creative path: producing whimsical frog portraits. Through patience, care―and plenty of snacks!―they have been able to achieve incredible images while keeping their animal friends totally content. In fact, some of their frogs now know that they will fed after being taken out of their terrarium―so they sign to Lisa and Tom or smush their faces up to the glass, wanting to be photographed! Whether sitting quietly on a flower or humorously interacting with a carefully selected prop, these frogs are sure to bring a smile to the face of any animal lover.

Authors Lisa Cuchara (PhD, Cr.Photog., HonNEC) and Tom Cuchara (MNEC) are professional photographers and animal lovers who share their home with three dogs, two cats, a red-eyed green tree frog and a bunch of other frogs, chameleons, and other critters. When they’re not out shooting assignments for their clients or leading photo workshops and tours, they can often be found creating whimsical frog images with their willing pets―who get ample snacks in exchange for patient posing! Lisa’s uncanny ability to put frogs at ease with her gentle care and loving demeanor has earned her the nickname “The Frog Whisperer.” Her frog images have earned merits in Professional Photographers of America print competitions and been featured in Quinnipiac Magazine as well as other publications. Lisa and Tom reside in Hamden, CT.
