They are located here in Janesville, WI and we have done a lot of their jobsite photos over the years. Some of the other commercial work we have done is for my mom who is an artist. [...]

Beauty in the Backyard

Beauty in the Backyard
My summer project was to appreciate the beauty all around in flowers, animals, landscape, & sky, and even weeds. I have gone out and taken lots of pictures at various places. Some of these are at my husband’s grandparent’s house and some are at my own home. It’s amazing how beautiful even the weeds are when you look clo [...]

My girls!

My girls!
Realizing that my younger daughter’s 1st birthday is less than 6 weeks away I realized I’d better get the invites out to her birthday party. So I decided we need to do a few new photos so I could put one of them on the invitation. Because she has totally amazing blue eyes I decided to put her in blue and use a blue background. The [...]

Pitter Patter Pix Baby

Pitter Patter Pix Baby
This past weekend I photographed the youngest client I have ever had, he was only 12 hours old. This little guy came a few weeks early so he was pretty tiny. He was the son of a girl that I went to elementary school and high school with. I always find it interesting when I photograph babies for people I knew from my childhood. I think it̵ [...]

T&K Part 2

T&K Part 2
I did part 2 of an engagement shoot. Laughter is clearly a huge aspect of their relationship. Several times during the photoshoot the couple burst out laughing usually when the groom to be would do something silly.  We did these shots at our studio. And we used one of the pictures for their Save the Date Card. I’ll post a sample of what [...]

Twins-Pitter Patter Pix

Twins-Pitter Patter Pix
I recently had the pleasure of photographing twin babies at the hospital for Pitter Patter Pix. It was my first time with a newborn set of twins. They were super adorable a boy & a girl. It was kind of funny how different and similar they were. The sister was a whole pound+ bigger than her brother and a few inches. I was amazed at the di [...]

Fireworks!

Fireworks!
I’ve always thought that going to the fireworks was a fun part of the 4th of July. Now having my 2 girls of course we were going to go to them this year. The girls & I had a lot of fun! I was super impressed that Makayla didn’t cry at all (especially because she had been super crabby teething all day). Annabell had fun, altho [...]

Peonies & Irises for Grandmas

Peonies & Irises for Grandmas
This spring due to the crazy weather our Lilacs were gone in a flash. We got one bunch inside and then they were all gone. It made me really sad because I love the smell of lilacs. After the Lilacs come the Peonies & Irises. My grandmother and my mom have always loved irises so I catch myself photographing them whenever I see them if my [...]

Nature at the Park

Nature at the Park
My mom was a big nature photographer when we were kids, she took pictures of a lot of flowers, rocks and other things in nature that she used as subject matter for paintings. It’s probably ingrained in me from years of her photographing things of that nature I realized that I do it to without even thinking. Here are some nature photos a [...]

At the Park

At the Park
We visited some family in Menomonee Falls and went to a nearby park for the girls to play. I really love taking pictures of kids at parks, because they are usually truly happy (until it’s time to go). The kids always look like they’re having fun, plus some of the action shots are really cool. Here are some pictures from our trip t [...]
