Madison Wisconsin / Mini Work Vacation

Personal

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 take many photos, but it was great to take a few minutes for us. I cannot wait to go back to Madison for the couples wedding!

Justin just LOVES when I take his photo! This is him being silly rocking back and forth and making car sounds! Yup we are dorks! But hey we wanted to give other people watchers something silly to watch!

OK – now when we try to take photos of each other or at the same time we cannot help but make faces and get strange! This is why I like being on the other side of the camera and take people photos!

If you can’t tell from my website, blog, or Pinterest or just know me – I ADORE trees! As a little girl I would lay on my back,and stare up at the trees. Watching and listening to the wind blowing throw the leaves. I did this while sitting at the capital stairs in Madison too! I took little mini video on my Instagram page! It is just so calming.

We drove through a mini storm on our way home, and the sky was beautiful! By the time I decided to take out my camera I missed most of the light – but I did capture the end of a disappearing rainbow.

With all the running around and time spent working sometimes I forget to sit back and look at the world around me. I am challenging myself to photograph more of my daily personal life! I read a book years ago that you should put down your camera and experience life – use your memory as your camera. So that is what I did with my personal life. But in today’s world life goes by so fast – that you encourage everyone to get out their camera and capture the little things. Just remember to be present – be there experiencing right along with your loved ones. Don’t force the moments, don’t shove the camera in people faces, just be there capturing as it comes.

With Love – Christine

Snail Mail Awesomeness
On Saturday I got the best smelling and package a coffee addict could ask for arrived in my mailbox! I seriously smelled it a ton before opening it, then shoved it in Justin's face so he could smell the awesomeness of it. When I opened it up, I was even more overjoyed with the simple but wonderful packaging. I was giddy like a school girl in a candy store when Jake from Valo Photography emailed me and asked me to try out his roasted coffee beans.  I got even more excited when he sent me a snap on Snapchat that he mailed it! I ran to the mailbox after returning from 2nd shooting in Wausau, and when I opened the door the waft of delicious coffe ...

The Rad Barn
So I have been dying to get in and see the barn that is holding The Rad Photographers Retreat - the photos on the site DO NOT do it any justice at all. This beautifully restored barn is a place that people never want to leave. Leather couches, comfortable pillows, a kitchen I would love to cook in daily, a rustic reclaimed wood table, and a relaxing fireplace. The barn is perfect for us to reconnect with photography, dig into our dreams, learn how we can get published and market for our ideal clients while in a  place that will feel like home. When you arrive we will mingle over a glass of wine, immediately digging into your goals for your ...
