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!)

Breakfast at Benedict’s

On Thursday I posted the question “what is your favorite breakfast food on Facebook.”  apparently I’m not the only one with a love for breakfast food as my Facebook exploded with responses.  One such response was “eggs Benedict” from Cooper.  Cooper is married to Kaitlyn and they are both great friends of mine so as we conversed via the thread we resolved to make a field trip to the quaint restaurant the next day.

Yummy breakfast with two great friends definitely became the highlight of my week!

Kaitlyn ordered a bread pudding of sorts, I ordered a veggie skillet, and Cooper ordered a German version of eggs Benedict (not pictured).  Kaitlyn and I proceeded to photograph the food, awkwardly in a corner.  Feast your eyes 😉
