The fruits of life

Where do I even begin?! It’s been well over a year and a half since I have blogged, and I am also a week late on this specific post. Well… I guess technically, I am a year and a half late on everyone else’s blog posts too, but we all know what kind of year last year was… and, not to worry! Everyone has received their galleries since the last time I blogged! 2020 just took a LOT out of me… and I am sure it did you, too. However, during all of the chaos of last year, there were still some golden linings. Engagements continued, wedding planning forged on… my brides over this last year have had to put a lot of trust in their plans despite the unknown and I am happy to report, that every one of the weddings that I’ve been a part of since.. you know… all were still beautiful, loving days full of joy and fun. Michelle and Randy’s wedding was no exception!

…and on another episode of “How Did We Get Here?”, I am featuring the stunning Madeline of Germantown High, Class of 2020! Maddie is yet another repeat client of mine that I’ve been photographing since she was just a little girl. Since her mama is one of my very best friends, I’ve actually had the […]

Up until the last few weeks, I had never really shot anything much in the rain. I have pretty much always lucked out with my weddings and having clear skies, at least at moments throughout the day, and typically for regular sessions if it’s raining, we reschedule. Well, we had Melanie and Mike’s engagement session […]

Today on the blog, I am so excited to be featuring the wedding of Megan and Jordan, at The Ridge in Lake Geneva!! Megan and Jordan went with an early fall/late summer wedding and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. They promised forever to each other on September 14th, 2019 and friends and family […]

When Caity and I first started talking about booking and where her family photo session would be, we went through a few different possibilities and settled on a sunset session at Pewaukee Beach. Later that day, I posted a sunset family session that I shot at Retzer Nature Center, and Caity emailed me right away, […]

Whew! It has been a little over 2 weeks since Samantha and Jake tied the knot and I think it’s about time to feature them on the blog!!! I have a few days off from shooting and my brain seems to be sharp today so I am getting caught up here at home on blogging […]

I don’t even know where to start with this one… so let me start at the beginning. While I was editing these pictures, I was thinking back on all of the years that I have been doing this thing I now call my art. If that sounds cliché for a photographer to say, it’s because […]

From the moment that I met Moira, which was the day of her session actually, I could tell she had an amazing personality to go with her beautiful smile!! That makes my job SUPER easy! She came straight from having her hair and makeup done with Monica at Locks+Lashes. Moira is a natural beauty as […]

MY KIDS ARE OFF TO SCHOOL!! Woohoo!! Party time! … just kidding … we’ve done enough of that over the summer. That means work catch-up time! And boy oh man I feel like I am making excuse after excuse here on my blog but the last week was SO busy for us. Not to mention, […]
