This week Maisy hit 1 month! So hard to believe! She’s consumed most of my photographing for the week. Seems to be my trend lately. But I also photographed a wedding and saw a really cool looking sun at sunset this week!
PHOTO 1: Maisy sitting with me at my desk as I work.
PHOTO 2: An early morning diaper change (note Josh’s yawn).
PHOTO 3: We smiled at each other for a long time! Little did I know this smiling session marked the first of many more to come – my little Maisy Joy sure is a joyful little bugger!
PHOTO 4: 1 month photography session – TAKE 1

I tried and succeeded at “1 month photography session – Take 3” today. Photos to be revealed soon!
PHOTO 6: Jenna + Jake are married! And we had some football fun in a wooded wonderland for the camera More photos to come.
PHOTO 7: That cool sunset I was telling you about!
First of all, I apologize for the excess of images in this post. Obviously I had too much fun with Hannah + Austin. But, I promise they are all worth it!
Hannah + Austin are dear friends of mine. Turns out, I have the honor of standing next to this beauty on her wedding day! For their wedding gift I gave an engagement session and boy am I glad I did! Not only do I love getting the opportunity to photograph friends but this session couldn’t have been more perfect! The evening light and these two were so gorgeous I didn’t stop photographing for over 2 hours. There is also something beautiful about doing photography for free every now and then. It’s like I have a sort of release and my creative juices actually flow freer because I feel unabashed in asking for outrageous things – like having them climb up into the under workings of a train bridge or myself climbing up into a tree. This session was so wonderful because I had driven past these photo spots so many times I was dying to use them, I got to work with two creatives (they are both musicians and Hannah is also a photographer), and you can’t beat an evening glow under a little bit of weather! I mean, come one, the first shots look like we did our session somewhere in Ireland. Just downtown Janesville folks!
Hannah + Austin, I had such a blast with you two creating these images and I can’t wait for your big day! Whoot whoot!

Hey friends! It’s time for my June newsletter. Keeping you in the loop is just what I do!
Update #1: Newsletters will probably never make it out on the first of the month. I’ve realized I don’t want to interrupt my blogging routine (Saturday & Sunday off, Monday “a Photo a Day,” Tuesday photography, Wednesday Words, Thursday photography, Friday free for all) so that means my newsletters will be featured on the blog the Friday after the first of every month.
Last month I was selected to be on TV with Talk of the Town. First time being on TV and it wasn’t too terrifying! Hopefully I’ll have a link to the interview soon!
Sometimes I do freelance photography for publications. I’ve been freelancing for BRAVA Magazine since October and am featured on their cover for the second time this month.

This is it! I will now be seeing weddings in my every waking moment and even in my dreams! Starting June 22 I become a sort of wedding hopper. Every Saturday I have the privilege of photographing beautiful couples on their big, big days… and then I get to eat their food and cake and maybe even dance a little 🙂 It’s a good life. Tiring, but very good! To book me, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org – subject line “wedding photography” please.
Attention High School Seniors.
Calling all high school seniors! There is still time to book your session with me! Better hurry though because time flies and I get packed quickly. I absolutely love senior portrait photography. I love that I get to work with young adults in such a cool time in their life when the world is at their finger tips and they are reaching out to seize it! I am a unique photographer in that it is my sole goal to photograph the uniqueness in you! I work throughout the session to choose poses and spots that better showcase what you love and who you are. I even welcome family and friends into the shots if you like. Contact me at email@example.com (subject line “senior portrait photography” please) to get more info about booking me for your session. A note of warning, only contact me if you want to have fun during your portrait session!
Citizen Way on tour with Mercy Me.
Every tour my husband finds himself on it is my goal to make it to at least one show. This tour, the closest they got to me was Brunswick, OH… 7.5 hours away. So, at 36 weeks pregnant I hopped in a car with my mom and we road-tripped it out there! What a great show! CLICK HERE to read about it and see the photos I took at the concert.
Buying a Home.
Still haven’t closed on our house but we’ve been dreaming up the place like crazy! Our apartment is sufficiently packed up and we’re ready to go! now we’re just waiting for our June 16 closing date! To read more about the specifics of how huge of a blessing this is check out my blurb about it from my May Newsletter.
Having a baby.
I am 39 weeks pregnant and this little buddy is hanging on! With a move on (or before) June 16, a due date of June 11, and wedding photography season hitting full force starting June 22 I am in for one crazy month!
Tata for now!
I connected with The Armory in Janesville and am now one of their featured wedding photographers! I chose to connect with this venue in particular because I love the charm of the brick, historic building and I simply won’t beat the proximity to my home!
This new connection meant I needed to get some materials printed for them to put in the folders they give their couples. I chose this simple card as to give these couples the eye candy and some basic information without overwhelming them. The idea is that if they like what they see on the card they will inquire with questions or to book me for their wedding.
Bring it on The Armory brides and grooms! Looking forward to connecting with you!
