Christmas Tree Adventure / Personal / Natural Intuition Photography

Personal

Justin and I got our Christmas Tree a few weeks ago – beating the cold spell that we have been having. This was only our 2nd time getting a real tree for our home, the last apartment we lived in would not allow real trees so we had a thin fake one. I was SOOOO excited to put up a real one, and cut it down!

We went to a place that is ran by a wonderful family near Lake Dubay – and they had be hooked when I saw their website and ready this —

“Tree sales helped kickoff a campaign to raise awareness and over $32,000 for the A-T Children’s Project. Past sales have benefited The Salvation Army, Portage County Youth on Ice, Head Start and Redeemer Lutheran Church Holiday baskets. Pheasant Pines also participates in Adopt-A-Highway program”

The joy I get from my Christmas Tree spreads so much farther than my living room! And I LOVE the fact that they use earth friendly pesticides and use minimal fertilizer – they are not the perfect trees you see in most lots and that is yet another thing that I LOVE about the Tree Farm. It is also a Pheasant Farm, and the pheasants are roaming free – and yes I did want to take one home with me!

Justin and I bundled up for our adventure, and when we got there we had a great chat with the owner, and he told us where to go, and how to find the trees we were looking for. Justin and I walked a ways to find the tree we wanted – I found one I really wanted, and so did he – BUT …. I wanted a HUGE massively tall tree, and he was a little one. We compromised with a 7 some foot tall Blue Spruce, BEAUTIFUL!

We had to be careful walking to make sure we didn’t step on any newly planted trees : )

I giggle when I see this photos – because Justin said while we were walking and dragging the tree that ” a trip with a photographer takes twice as long ” HA it’s so true! We stop and enjoy the little things!

Madison Wisconsin Wedding Photographer - Wisconsin Bride
Introvert in a Extroverts Body
Earlier last week I went to the Wisconsin Brides Social Event held at Onesto in Milwaukee.  I was asked by WI Bride to photograph the event - this is something that I have never been asked to do before. The whole day leading up to the event I was so nervous I had butterflies in my belly - it was made worse when traffic on the way to Milwaukee was HORRIBLE. We left with plenty of time, but lost minute after minute with all the traffic we ran into. (I do not like being late for anything - I love to be on time. Sometimes I am so early that I wait in my car till it's time.) When we arrived at Onesto, I changed quickly in the car, and ran up the s ...

Rad Photographers Retreat Final Dinner designed by Elevate Events
When I contacted the ladies of Elevate Events about doing the styling of The Rad Photographers Retreat with me - they were just as excited about this new event as I was. They went above and beyond when it came to the planning - we went through some really great highs and some unfortunate lows. These ladies stuck through to the end with me - and I couldn't have asked for better planners or people to go through it with. The final dinner at The Rad Photographers Retreat was designed by the ever amazing Elevate Events Designs. These ladies took my ideas on a relaxed dinner by candle light and ran with it. Simple greens white candles and grey plat ...

Our Sunday’s
Since wedding season started just over 4 weeks ago - Sunday's are very different around our home. Justin works Monday thru Friday at Sentry Insurance, while I edit the day away in my home office. And lately I have been traveling to, venue tours, meetings with clients, and meeting with some awesome new vendors. So seeing each other is only a few hours a week - even though we do shoot weddings together every weekend, it's not the same. I adore having him there with me, and wouldn't change that for the world. He is the best assistant a photographer could ask for! But on Sunday's this is what we do, ( if there are no meetings or sessions sched ...
