The most wonderful time of the year … for me

Share Random Photos Wednesday

Festival season officially began for me last night with the kickoff meeting of the Summerfest Street Team.  Anyone that knows me knows that I have a love of music that is somewhat … passionate.  And my love of the World’s Largest Music Festival is a part of what keeps me going through the long, cold winter here in Wisconsin.

I’ve been part of the Summerfest Street Team for several years – a team leader for the last two.  I’ve had such a blast getting to know the people that organize the festival and the fans that love it.  I can’t imagine not being a part of it.  Why do I love it so much?  There are many reasons – the music, the food, the people I meet.  The diversity of all of those things.  There truly is something for everyone at Summerfest.

If you want to know more about the festival go to summerfest.com and follow me on Facebook and Twitter (links below).  I will post updates, photos and let you all know where the Street Team will be so you come by and say Hi!  We always have some free tickets to give away.  Plus, this year we are hoping to have some events here in Madison.  Woohoo!

I’ll be sharing photos I’ve taken over the years on Wednesdays from here on.  Let me know if you recognize anyone on stage or off.

Share wedding photographs in Madison WI

Friday is Share Wedding Photographs

I love taking wedding pictures inside the Capitol building.  It’s architecture just screams for a bride and groom to pose.  On this particular day I had the luxury of time with my couple so we played.  On our way down from the third floor an idea for a mini photo story popped into my head.  I asked the bride and groom to stand in the middle of the elevator doors and kiss.  This is what happened …

What’s so special about senior portraits in Madison WI?

Thursdays are for sharing senior portraits.

One of the things that I really enjoy when taking senior portraits is when they bring along a younger sibling for a few photos.  Coming from a family with six kids I know how special the bond is between siblings.  A couple of years ago I had a big sister ask for a few photos with her younger brother.  Now this was pretty sweet all by itself but her younger brother was probably one of the most adorable little brothers ever.  He happily jumped in and did every thing we asked him to do.  And when I say jumped in – he really did.  No worries about the cell phone still in his pocket ….

This past summer I was asked to share the senior portrait experience with him.  Still sweet.  Still adorable.

Thank you Katie and Danny!!

Wednesday:  Share Random Photos

If I could have enough time to do all the editing I need to do .. that would be great.  Especially where family get togethers are concerned.  Last summer two of my sisters, my soon to be brother in law and several friends decided to do the Color Run in Milwaukee WI.  I had never heard of this event until then.  I did some research and thought it looked like a blast.  It was.

Throughout the course they have various color stations where the runners/walkers are hit with a bit of color.  We were positioned at the blue station.  At some points all you could see was blue “smoke” and then one person would burst through.  And each and every person had a smile on their face.  It was crazy.  It almost made me want to do it but that feeling passed very quickly.  Ha!

If you’re into running/walking and color – then do the next Color Run!  Here’s a link for more info.  They run all over the country so I’m sure there will be one where ever you are located.
