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 […]

There are so many options out there for your wedding flowers!  Katy Ripp operates her dream farm, Mad Lizzie’s Flower Farm, in Cross Plains Wisconsin and back in the fall I ran over to Katy’s farm in the wee hours to photograph her last wedding bouquet and buckets of the season for this blog post.  She was also […]

As families grow up and children move away and have children of their own, it becomes harder and harder to get everyone together!  The Utter family was all together for the first time in years and it was an honor to be able to capture a few photos of them together!   Due to frigid […]

It’s Christmas day and I’m looking forward to a relaxing day with family but first I’m getting caught up on a few things while the husband sleeps because I have yet to master the art of sleeping in. 🙂 This blog post is long overdue but appropriate for today.  A few weeks ago, I had […]

This post is a bit late, but I’m so excited to share these favorites from the Sunwall’s family session with you!   Brian and I got to spend our morning with them a couple of weekends ago.  I already delivered their session, but hadn’t quite gotten the blog post done until today. This is Even. […]

Happy Monday, friends!  Last weekend’s mini session are already delivered, but I wanted to share a few favorites to brighten your Monday morning! NOTE: You may notice that there aren’t any of those “pure gold” everyone looking at the camera and smiling shots – while I did get plenty of those, I’m choosing not to […]

While the shot above may suggest otherwise, it is possible to get precious shots of your child during his or her session. I promise! The key is flexiblity! Many things affect the way your child responds to my camera: the weather, their outfit, how much sleep they got the night before, how they feel about […]
