Spring is my favorite time for photos but the weather can be crazy!  I’ve lost track of how many times Jill and I rescheduled this session but we finally had a break in the rain and cold for a few quick spring portraits! Jill’s sweet little family is among the most loving I have ever […]

This past Saturday marked the first real day off I had had since February and also happened to be a gloriously sunny, breezy, warm, actually-feels-like-spring day.  The kind of day that makes me want to go plant a garden, even though past experience has taught me that that is a terrible idea that results in […]

I met up with Barkha and Umang for the first time a couple weeks ago at Barriques (we had a lovely chat), and this past weekend we managed to sneak in their maternity images at 36 weeks!  And yes, Barkha looks amazing! <3 Barkha and Umang have a fascinating history – they met in medical school […]

When your brother-in-law’s dog has puppies you make time to go snuggle them.  You just do.  And maybe take a few photos here and there!  We somewhat spontaneously decided to drive over to the farm after work Saturday evening and it turned out to be a lovely evening away. Life seems much simpler when the puppies […]

As I am an introvert, writing about personal things does not come naturally and this post has been a draft on paper and in my heart for a long time! Stories, true and imagined, have fascinated me ever since I was a kid.  I was a voracious reader and my mom actually had to limit how many […]

You may have noticed that its been a tad warm lately.  I’m so thankful for little things…like completely perfect weather that we never could have planned for!  Wisconsin winters are not, as a rule, photographer friendly.  This past weekend was an exception and thankfully, Becky and I were able to take full advantage! Becky is a photographer friend […]

As an artist, its awesome to be able to keep learning, growing, and trying new things.  Last week I had the privilege of taking some head shots for the University of Wisconsin Badger Business Professionals. The BBP, a University of Wisconsin student organization, is made up of undergraduate students who are current and pre-business students. It offers […]

I’m just going to be honest.  My 2016 was positively ridiculous.  Its the year I gave up on from-scratch meals and started having our groceries delivered.  We consumed far to many chicken nuggets and my husband ran more errands (grabbing things I forgot) than he’s ever had to do in his entire life thus far.  The Chick-fil-A curbside pickup app […]

A few weeks ago I got to take some photos of these 3 lovelies – and it just so happened to be snowing!  It couldn’t have been more perfect.  Well, we could have done without illness and hunger and tiredness but hey everything else was perfect ;P.  Despite the obstacles, these three braved the cold and […]

It’s been a chilly Sunday afternoon, but April, Shaun, and their two beautiful girls are tough!  April had the perfect spot in mind and we got lots done in a short period of time. (PS: Check out the super awesome icicles!  Yes, it’s that cold.  Hello winter!) So much cute! <3  Don’t they belong in […]
