Devil’s Lake Relaxation | Baraboo Wisconsin

For some reason, this year has been a lot of me struggling with wanting to do more. More relaxation with Justin, more hiking, more cookouts, more time with friends & family, more work, photographing as much as possible, trying to make a movement with Rad Photographers Retreat just more. I also find myself scrolling through social media and seeing others doing more – I am not comparing really, just feel like I am falling behind. I know others feel this – so I am writing this blog to ensure them, YOU, that you’re not alone in this feeling.

Yesterday I got this massive feeling of regret and dread – so I looked at Justin and said were getting out of this apartment. We packed up our grill, Hello Fresh Meal, (use that link to save $40!) drinks, and hopped in the car to Devil’s Lake State Park. We hiked a few miles along the bluff then cooked our Hello Fresh Meal while the sunset behind lake and bluffs. Even though I went on the hike with a pretty empty stomach and swore a ton (I am in really bad shape…) we hiked at least 2 or so miles. Up and down steep steps – but it got out all the anger I was feeling. It allowed me to clear my head and go back home refreshed.

What I suggest doing when you feel like the world in collapsing around you:

Call a friend – vent all that is bothering you.

Go for a walk – put in those headphones and walk. Walk while emptying those thoughts into the world.

DO NOT let it fester inside of you! This is the #1 thing to remember. The more you let it fester the worse it gets! Trust me, as someone who drank 6 days a week in college because I didn’t talk to anyone about the frustrations I had. Not the healthiest way to deal!

If you don’t know who to call, text or talk to – email, text me! I am here for you! I don’t care if you are states, cities, or blocks apart – I am here to help ya see just how fucking awesome you are! Life sucks sometimes, we all need someone to let us relax, vent and just get it out of your mind and heart.

Devil’s Lake is my solitude – and being able to share it with Justin is even better!

Rad Photographers Retreat 2017 | Part One
A Retreat Where You Come as Strangers and Leave Friends It's been a week since I woke up on the first morning of the Rad Photographers Retreat. I work up at 645 to start breakfast and brew coffee for the amazing ladies attending the retreat. This retreat was an idea I had 3 years ago while drinking a bottle of wine (yes a bottle, don't judge) with a friend. While chatting we wished there was a non-judgmental workshop we could go to of women. A place we can go to get away from life, reconnect with photography and dig deep into dreams. The first retreat was in 2016 and there were just 6 ladies that attended. This grew to something where it ...

*after hitting play please be patient on mobile devices - it's worth the wait : )** Justin and I are Adventure Photographers, also known has Destination Wedding & Portrait Photographers. The past few weeks I have met some new amazing people near Madison since moving here, and when they find out my business name they geek out. (in a good way!) They start complimenting, and making me blush, then continuing with saying - you guys travel all over, don't you!? Yes, yes we have traveled a TON in the past year or so. This year we are mainly in Wisconsin, but I have already traveled over 10,000 miles in my  Nissian. I am also thankful I got ...

The Memorial Union Terrace | Our Madison Life
Our Madison Life This time of year we are crazy busy, with editing, blogging, meetings, and life. There are moments we don't leave out house unless we HAVE to. But, sometimes I get so tired of being at home I HATE to leave the house. The weather this week has been pretty perfect so we left the house to enjoy a pitcher of beer while we watched the sunset. The real reason why we went down to the terrace is that we have a marketing session coming up with a realtor. We wanted to keep it casual, professional and by the water. So I immediately thought of the terrace to start inside and end by the water. So we scoped out the locations before get ...
