July 3, 2014



I have been a little MIA from social media lately – my Facebook Page hasn’t been as updated as usual, Pinterest Page has been mainly used for food I plan on making and never do. Even my beloved Instagram account has been  a little slow. I have been trying to find balance between business, personal, and my bar tending job. It is harder than I thought it was going to be – with a job that I ADORE and wouldn’t change it one bit. Except, I would like to spend more time with my wonderful boyfriend and family. Oh, and maybe sleep! I have always been a night owl, and so not a morning person, and this summer I gave myself a schedule where I get up at a certain time and get my to do list done.

So this weekend me any my awesome assistant/boyfriend/love of my life are leaving one day early for one of my favorite clients weddings south of the Twin Cities. We are going to spend the day with my lovely sister and brother in law. I am excited to see new places, chat, and maybe get a donut or two! We are renting a car and leaving Thursday night after we are both done with work. I will not be returning emails or phone calls until Tuesday morning. I am excited to take a moment to relax for a day, and spend it with the ones I love. While photographing an amazing wedding with two amazing people! OH! And Sunday I get to take some commercial photographs for one of my favorite venues in Waupaca! Stay tuned for that! So as you can see, balance is hard for me – even when I plan a mini vacation I fill it with amazing shoots!

I am hoping you all have a safe and joyous 4th of July! Remember to thank those who serve – and remember how awesome this country really is – despite it’s faults. Take some amazing photos of your family, and catch some awesome ones of the fireworks! Memories go by so fast – capture them in time with a click of a button! And I will see you all Tuesday!


Photo credit awesomeness goes to the wonderful Abby of Abby Clements Photography ! Love her!

Photo Field Trip // El Capitan Canyon California
Photo Field Trip - when I first learned about this adventure I knew I had to sign up for it. Camping with hundreds of creatives in sunny California. Even though the first year was anything but sunny I just knew I had to sign up. A chance to learn from some of my favorite photographers, those whom I follow on a daily basis. I have to admit though when I met them, I was a bumbling idiot, yup that's right! I am a total dork - who knows what I would do if I met Brad Pitt, I just got embarrassed just thinking about it. Over 5 days I got to learn from amazing photographers, meet new friends, bunk with some of the best ladies in the cutest little ...
