Photo 1:  We were given so many great picture books at our baby shower!  Thanks to our generous friends, Baby Calhoun’s library is off to a great start!

Photo 2:  A simple “professional profile” portrait session for BRAVA Magazine.

Photo 3:  Sometimes I like to prop my hand on my belly now-a-days.  Handy little arm rest!

Photo 4:  Mom and I road-tripped it out to Brunswick, Ohio to see Citizen Way play!  I am committed to making at least one performance per tour they are on and since Brunswick was as close as it was gonna get we made it happen!

Photo 5:  Sam was giving some creepy eyes.  He’s funny.

Photo 6:  I love that I have had such a steady increase of boudoir photography work to do!  I did this incredible boudoir shoot at the studio last week!  Can’t wait to work on these images and put together an album for her to give to her lucky husband-to-be!

Featured in BRAVA Magazine’s May Issue

I have the privilege of doing freelance photography with BRAVA Magazine.  I absolutely love working for them!  I get to do a whole variety of work for them from advertisement photography to event photography and everything in-between.  Besides, I love any excuse to go up to Madison.

For their May issue I was grinning ear to ear as I flipped through the pages and saw my work littering the magazine.  Below is my work in print!

I primarily freelance photograph in the Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois areas but am available for travel worldwide!  Contact me at asunshinemoment@gmail.com with the subject line “freelance photography” to hire me!

This shoot at Dog Haus University was wicked fun!  The dogs were all over me the whole time, particularly a trio of dogs I unfortunately wasn’t able to get on camera because they were so bent on being on top of me.  They were the cutest!  Send me to photograph dogs anytime!

The upper left image is mine.  I had a lot of fun staging those products and they smelled amazing!May 2014_2We had to march up several flights of stairs to get the awesome lighting for this shot but it was worth it!  I was panting by the time we got there due to my baby belly but the ladies were super sweet about it – there was another woman there leading us around.
May 2014_3This event was so much fun!  There were so many unique things to photograph throughout the day and I had a lot of fun people watching in-between shots. And yup, that’s a real, live kangaroo!  (Not sure why the blue is blown out of proportion, but I suppose I messed up a setting in converting the PDF to JPEG, sorry about that folks!)
May 2014_4 The upper half of the spread is mine.  This event also supplied a plethora of tasty treats for this pregnant lady!  Yum!May 2014_5
