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 […]

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 […]

For many, the Christmas season lends itself to reminiscing like no other.  I am no exception – I realized yesterday that it was my 7th Christmas spent with my husband’s immediate family and that it was finally starting to actually feel like Christmas.  See, Christmas has always been my favorite time of year and until […]

You just got engaged (so exciting!!) and there’s a world of wedding decisions out there waiting for you!  Colors, venue, flowers, order of ceremony, the list goes on.  I’ve put together a list of my favorite wedding blogs to help you plan your day. NOTE:  While I’ve listed 12 here, my suggestion would be to […]
