Photographs from the past

Recently I was looking through some of my older image files.  A client had called looking to replace some lost photos I had done for him a few years ago.  I found the ones he was looking for and a few more I had completely forgotten about.  Like any professional photographer – I have a lot of images stored away.

These were among the images.  They are former President Bill Clinton from February 2008.  He was on the campaign trail for then Presidential candidate, former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.  This was his stop in Madison WI.

Getting ready for Senior pictures in Madison WI

“What’s your favorite type of photograph to take?”

I get asked this question a lot.  Truth be told – I like everything.  I love the once in a lifetime energy of wedding photography.  Here are two people in love, surrounded by their families and friends, celebrating one of the biggest moments of their lives.  Happy – Happy – Happy!!  Then there are the kids and babies and pets.  I love the spontaneity of these sessions.  I love that they never worry about things like double chins when they give me a big smile.  They just have fun.

What I love about photographing high school seniors is that they fall somewhere in between kids and weddings.  I love that they have something to say and are willing to try new things.  Senior Portraits are a way of presenting themselves to the world as a young adult.  I love being a part of that.  And while I’m being honest, they can hold a pose and I don’t have to sing “The Wheels On The Bus” … that often.

Here are some faces that will be receiving a diploma and flipping a tassel this year.  I can’t wait to meet the Class of 2014!

Wedding trends in Madison WI 2013

What’s trendy in 2013 for weddings?  Well to start with Pantone recently announced it’s “Color Of The Year” – Emerald Green!  We added some of this fabulous color to the site to help inspire those that visit us here.  They are already wearing the color on the Red Carpets in Hollywood and I’m thinking there will be a few bridesmaids wearing it this season as well.

Also, cupcakes are still a hot ticket for those spunky couples that just can’t do traditional wedding cake.  I think it’s a great way to add flavors that everyone will love without all the leftover cake that will dry out while you’re on your honeymoon!

And last but not least – 2013 is going glam!  Yes it’s true.  This year look for brides to be bringing back a bit of old Hollywood mixed in with today’s hot ticket designers.  Luxurious faux furs, sparkly bling in all the right places (then again, is there a wrong place for bling?) and some life changing shoes.

Photographer in Madison WI finds haute coiffure

This weekend I had the opportunity to work with Matthew, owner of Wicked Beauty.  This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of photographing his work which can only be described as “haute coiffure”.  He has a vision that reaches into the corporate offices of Madison WI to the runways of Fashion Week in New York.  I had such a blast working with him again!!
