Event Photography in Madison WI & Milwaukee WI

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.

Hand in hand

Friday:  Share Wedding Photos

I took this photograph more than a handful of years ago.  The wedding was small and intimate and every moment was filled with love and happiness.  This photo was one of my favorites of the day because it signified taking their first steps into the future – together, hand in hand.

The second image is what I saw in my head today.  Sometimes I just like to play.  By the way, the carpet was not blue.  🙂

Coffee with Sean

Thursday:  Share Senior Portraits

Over the years I’ve been lucky to be able share many special days with more than a few families.  This spring will mark one of those days for one of my favorite families.  Sean will graduate from high school.

This senior portrait session was a bit different than most.  As I clicked the shutter I saw two faces – the one that was sitting in front of me that day and the other was the face in my head that I’ve seen grow up over the last 11 years.   We spent a good portion of a day in the studio and at various locations in Madison.  My favorite moment was when we took a short break and Sean bought us coffee.  As we chatted about a million different things – I realized that he had gone from being this amazing, sweet and goofy kid into a smart, witty and goofy young man.

Well done Sean.

These are the days of our lives …

I’m kind of tired of trying to market my business.

Okay, five minutes just passed as I stared at that statement.  I’m feeling equal measures of panic and peace.  As a small business owner, a part of every day for the last 11 years has been spent trying to let the world (meaning Madison WI) know I’m here and to attract new clients.  I have the best web site designer who has created this beautiful site and I feel like I’m not using it to it’s full potential.  That ends right now.

Today marks the first day of the new blog here at sweeneysphotography.com.  I will no longer be trying to sell or market anything on the blog section of the site.  There are hundreds of portrait samples in the Galleries.  If you want to know services, prices or specials – please click on the tabs above.  There is a ton of information throughout the site and if it’s not – then send me an email or give me a call.  I would love to talk to you!!  Better yet, stop by and we’ll chat over some of my fabulous coffee or tea – I may even have some Chex Mix to share.

So here’s how the blog is going to look from here on out.  Each weekday I will be sharing my photographs.  Not just wedding or kids pictures, I will be sharing it all – even personal photos.  I will share a bit of the story behind the photographs and in the case of my “Art” – I may even be showing you all a bit of the process by way of video (but only if it’s a good hair day).

Wednesday is now:  Share Random Photographs From The Past

These were taken backstage while the stylists prepared their models for a fashion/hair show in Milwaukee WI at the Art Museum.
