We’ve been talking about Caleb’s senior session for a couple of years, ever since I was photographing their family session and asked his mom if he would be needing senior photos (right before his junior year…oops!).  I may have gotten the date wrong by a year, but the day finally came this past weekend and […]

Today’s post is the next installment in my personal project, “The Farm Series”.  This series is part puppy marketing images and part documentary images of Valley View Farm, a dairy farm in south-central Wisconsin and my brother-in-law’s pride and joy.  (If you missed previous installments, click the links below!) http://amylynnphotoblog.com/valley-view-farm-labs-puppy-photos-2-weeks-old/ http://amylynnphotoblog.com/the-farm-series-nankey-family-pt-2/ http://amylynnphotoblog.com/the-farm-series-puppies-part-2/ http://amylynnphotoblog.com/puppies/ This installment […]

Having a sister-in-law who married a farmer who also breeds labs has it’s perks, like 3 nieces and a nephew, lots of cute cat sightings, delicious beef, and of course puppies once a year <3.  Hershey had her puppies at the beginning of March so we got to take their two week photos last weekend! […]

Kirsten and I met briefly via a volunteer activity last fall and then looked me up for a tree farm mini session/maternity session in November.  It was so lovely getting to know her and Joe a bit and we figured out that Kirsten and I had taken some of the same photography education!  It didn’t […]

I’ve been waiting to share this blog post and it was so hard because I get to talk about my friend Jill!  Not only is she a sweet friend, and supermom extraordinaire, but also an accomplished quilter.    She started quilting while her husband was in dental school and opened her first Etsy shop shortly […]

Despite Friday night’s frigid cold and wind, Robert and Katie agreed to help me out with a concept that I had in my head the other night: If you’re already dressed up for a nice date night, why not have some photos taken at the same time? Sure you had lots of photos taken of […]

The dress, the rings, the shoes, the earrings.  Every detail, every perfect find.  Every heirloom.  While people are obviously the center of your wedding day, every detail has a story to tell and all of those little stories add rich layers to the story of your day.  Don’t let them be forgotten in the hustle […]

I’m starting a new little series of posts called Friday FAQs and first up is a question I get asked all the time in various forms: “Do you Photoshop photos before you deliver them?” The simple answer?  Not if I can help it! But usually when my clients ask that, that’s not what they’re really […]

Meet Shannon and her precious 10 week old bernedoodle, Abby.  By the way, Abby doesn’t run, she bounces!  It’s the cutest thing!  It almost distracted me from my fingers almost falling off.  Seriously – it was frigid!  My car said 5 degrees, my phone said 6.  I think they were both being optimistic.  But at […]

MaryClare braved almost-above-freezing temps and a good stiff breeze for 45 minutes so that we could get some fabulous headshots!  We chose one of my favorite locations, the Wisconsin State Historical Society in downtown Madison, for its light, crisp background and regal architecture.  It was so perfect for this lovely lady, who just completed her […]
