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!!

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.
