Taylor | Sweet Home Wisconsin

The Beautiful Taylor wins the prize for the greatest distance traveled to have her senior portraits taken by me. Her family made the road trip all the way from Arizona so her beloved native Wisconsin countryside could be the back drop to these very special portraits in her life. I feel her time was definitely worth her while. What a fun experience!

We started out at our local Colfax Railroad Museum. The sun was high and bright, which is normally a challenging factor on the photography side of things. But somehow, it just couldn't have been more perfect. We then wandered around this tiny little town and even stopped at a farm for some country shots. We traipsed carefully around vintage cars, rough hewn brick, a rustic barn and a quiet courtyard that afternoon... Time flew quickly, and I don't even know how to pick just a few of my favorite images. 

I'm so grateful for Taylor and her beautiful smile and fun personality. I know she has what it takes to go far in life, and not just literally, but figuratively too... hehe. I wish her the best and the biggest dreams ever.

Paul & Tarin and their Dapper Little Dudes

It couldn't have possibly been a more perfect Saturday morning at the Rod & Gun Park. The sun flickering through the leaves and sparkling on the water. The breeze gently wisping the few stray leaves that had been claimed by Autumn.

I had a family arrive for their photoshoot. Two people who fell in love a long time ago, and then stayed madly in love. Three dapper little gentlemen called them Mom and Dad. "I think the nice word for it is.... spirited?" The mom, Tarin, told me of the youngest. The two year-old. The little guy who was just weeks younger than my own fiery 2 year-old. I laughed. Most people hate to admit it, but the world seems to be ruled by these little 2 year-olds. I knew I was going to love him.

And as would be his custom, he was the passionate little personality that I have grown to love so much. I knew right away this wasn't going to be the standard, nicely posed family shoot. This was going to be a fun one. And so we followed Mr. Isaiah through his exploration of this amazing park. It was perfect and probably the most fun family shoot I have ever conducted.
