Fall Family Photos......

Over the next several days I will be sharing lots of family sessions I have taken in the past few weeks.  One of the benefits of living in Wisconsin is the beautiful fall colors.  Some years we seem to be luckier than others.  As all of you know, we have a small window of opportunity to enjoy the colors....one autumn storm and "poof" there go the leaves!  So, for a couple of weeks I spent most of my time taking photos.....and for the past couple weeks I have been proofing......and editing......and proofing.......I am catching up and thanks to all my clients for being so patient!  You have all been awesome!  Here is another session with a beautiful family!

I love to hear what you think......to leave a comment - "click" on comments and a window will pop up.   Thanks!!

 One of my favorite photo shoots is a newborn....(and.....children, and.....weddings, and ..... families, and.....seniors, and......ok, you get the picture - I just love taking photos)  I love babies and keep telling people when they are here that they have to leave the baby as a "deposit" but, nobody has taken me up on that yet.....hmmmmm.....oh well, at least I get to spend some time with them taking their photos and capturing some precious moments with a new family.  (Although, I have had a few moms tell me they will call me next time their little one is cranky and up at 2:00 a.m.  haha)  This beautiful family was such a joy to photograph and best part is.....I get to do it again in a couple of months.  This beautiful little girl is going to be in a wedding I am shooting later this year!  Can't wait....we have a few surprises for those pics.... 

Isn't she just beautiful!!!

Heidi and Eric.....Engagement session!

In just less than two months these two will be getting married.....and, I GET TO TAKE THEIR WEDDING PHOTOS!!!  I am so excited (can you tell?)  I love photographing weddings, and Heidi and Eric are such a wonderful couple.   And, as much as I do NOT like winter, I love winter photos and cannot wait to do winter wedding photos.  They will be getting married right before Christmas....and I LOVE Christmas and all that wonderful bokeh (remember those blurry lights in the background in  my Christmas pics from last year?) that goes with it.  Can you tell I am a little excited?

Senior Pics.....Trey

This first pic is of Trey at the veterans memorial here in Medford.....something a little different and more sentimental.  This is his grandfathers memorial stone......

 There is a log across the river that I have wanted to use for some pics.....Not everyone is courageous enough to try making their way across until we get a good shot.  Trey was all over this.  Here is a wide shot.....

.......and here he is from another angle.  Love this shot....love the white foam from the water!

Like all the seniors I have been able to photograph this year, Trey was so much fun.  I had never met him prior to the day but, knew right away we were going to have fun.  Just like a lot of seniors I have photographed, he did NOT like getting his pictures taken.  But, shortly after we started, he became a natural.  And, as you can see we got a lot of great shots.  I had so much fun.  Thanks for a great afternoon!

Just a couple from the Merrill Wedding

A few weeks ago I got a call from a friend who is a photographer in Wausau.  She had hurt her back and was in need of help!  She had a wedding to shoot that Saturday and wasn't sure how she was going to do all the photos and wanted to know if I could help.....  Well, thanks to some awesome clients that I had photo sessions booked with on that Saturday who were willing to re-schedule, I was able to help her out.  Here are just a couple of shots from the day.  I had never met the bride and groom prior to that day but, quickly could see why the other photographer had spoken so highly of them.  They were an awesome couple and so very happy.  It was fun to be a part of the day!

Finally....New Pics - Senior/Family

Sorry......I have been so slow in updating my blog.  I PROMISE I will post new pics on here every night for the next few weeks.  I have been so busy taking and editing pics I haven't had much time for  blogging.  But.....I promise that will change.....maybe.....I'll try......really hard......I promise!

Anyway, as usual,. I had so much fun with this session.  It was a senior session but, as with many of my senior sessions, it is a great time to add a few family pics so you get a bonus.  Can you tell this is a football family????   Jace is on the Raider football team and his mom and dad are so proud of him - (I've heard his mom even takes a cow bell to the games....haha).

As always, leave a comment....I love to hear what you think!

Alli and Kyle - Amazing Wedding

It amazes me how I can be (and have been) involved in so many weddings and each one is so unique and beautiful.  Kyle and Alli were married at an amazing venue in southern Wisconsin with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.  The ceremony and reception were at the old  barn that has been converted into wedding/event space.  It is an awesome venue and the wedding was so much fun.  I wish Alli and Kyle so much happiness....They are such a sweet couple and I truly enjoyed taking part in their special day.  Love you guys....Here are just a few of my favorite pics of the day.....
