I’m gonna shoot that 30 Point Buck — oh ya!


Hunting Season is upon us! This has different meanings for different people!

For everyone that Hunts it means : Getting those tubs that are full of hunting gear out of storage – putting the clothes out side to air from all human scent – clean the gun, check the bow – buy new gear – put up the stand – wake up up before the sun, head out to the stand or blind, and wait. The anticipation of the hunt, the excitement when you finally see the one. You raise your weapon, aim-breath then WHAM!  The excitement and shakes you get when you hit it !

Then the stories begin – you retell and retell the awesome event to all your buddies and some strangers! You tell the how large it is, show them a picture – you are so proud at that very moment, and cannot wait to get out and do it again!

For the wives and girlfriends of those who do hunt : You know you won’t see your significant other for hours, or days, or even weeks! What do you do? Go shopping, clean, and have time with the girls. This is the time of year that there are craft fairs and event, local stores sometimes have sales, and you just see women everywhere!

For those who do not hunt at all : If you work at a restaurant or store, you are prepared to see woman after woman – you know that the men do not come in till later, or if you see them you KNOW They got a deer! So you are excited to hear their stories and see those pictures.

This is how I see Hunting Season every year! I am not a hunter nor is Justin – but my dad, brother and friends all hunt. I LOVE hearing their stories, their anguish of missing a BIG one, and all around find the hunting season entertaining. I would love to hunt, someday when I learn how to shoot a gun and bow I would love to go out and experience it all.

Good Luck to all you that hunt, and hope you shoot your 30 pointer! OR at least play the song!

Madison Wisconsin / Mini Work Vacation
So a couple weeks ago Justin and I met one of my 2014 couples downtown at one of our favorite places - The Old Fashioned! We meet most of out clients here - best place to relax, chat, and have a good beer! I wasn't ready to go home after the meeting, so I wanted to do what everyone does when they live in Madison - sit and relax at The Union - I wanted to have a pitcher of beer, but we compromised with Ice Cream! Even though I spilled a lot of ice cream on me, and didn't have any napkins - it was still oh so yummy! It was great to sit there in the colorful chairs, people watch and stare at the relaxing water. We didn't stay long, and didn't ...
Mylo & Otis the furry littles
Yes you guessed it I am somewhat a cat lady! Everyone if you have not met Mylo and Otis yet - here they are! Making their debut onto my blog! You must think that I really don't have anything else to write about or photograph other than my cats. someone without kids these two are my models daily. Justin and I are not planning on ever having kids, these furry little are as close as we are going to get to having little feet running around our home. And may I say they are like kids to us - we have to feed them, if we don't they get REALLY angry like human little's. They bite when you don't give them enough attention, like some human l ...
Summer must Have's, how to stay cool this summer
Wedding Photographer & Summer Must Haves / Dopp’s Favorite Things
What is the best thing on a HOT Summer day, other than ice cream, a cold beer or a swimming pool? ICE COLD WATER! I would have up to 3 bottles in the freezer for the following day to stay cool on those hot summer days and outdoor weddings. But, handling and storing those always caused a we mess. I am always trying to find ways to make life easier - especially when I spill so much already :) Yes, I am a clutz - this is why I do not wear white or light colored clothing on wedding days - or in general! The S'well Bottle changed this - and made our sweaty hot days so much cooler! As a wedding photographer in Wisconsin you have to deal with HOT ...
