Friday September 17th, Hyde Bar in Milwaukee, WI hosted the Fashion Revolution's Campaign Launch. I arrived at the bar around 5 pm to photograph the models and crew getting ready for the show. I captured candid photos as the models got their hair and makeup down, practiced walking down the runway, and the crew setting the decor and runway. Before the show started, I went around I took photos of the guests enjoy their time with friends. During the show, I then tested out my macro and was able to caputure the models walking down the runway. The show was a success both for the production and my photo work.

Last week Thursday 9-16, I decided to go on a little adventure around Waukesha County in Southeastern Wisconsin. At first I decided to visit the spots that I drive past everyday and never am able to stop at. The day was a perfect fall day: chilly, windy, and a mixture between blue and grey clouds. Then after awhile I decided to take an hour before coming back home and just got myself lost and were able to capture these beautiful landscape photos of the sunsetting.

I had the great opportunity to photograph Shane and Amanda's wedding September 4th 2010. I meet the bride before the ceremony at the Country Springs Hotel in Waukesha photographing her as she had her hair finished and her family got her into the dress. She looked absolutly beautiful. I then followed them out to Fowler Park in Oconomow, WI where the ceremony was held around 1 pm. Though windy and a tad chilly, close friends and family gathered to watch the two finally say "I Do." Afterwards their friends and family gathered around to have their pictures taken with the bride and groom. It was a beautiful ceremony and luckily a beautiful day! (To all my friends, this was my first time photographing a wedding!)

I have lived in Wisconsin my whole life and have traveled all over the country, spending my summer vacations in different states site seeing with my family. As my love for traveling still follows me into adult hood wanting to share these experiences with my son and as my passion for photography grows, I have decided to set a new goal for myself: Photographing every county and big festival in Wisconsin. I hope to capture the life in Wisconsin, what it all has to offer, and the beauty that it has to offer in all four seasons! The Data: 72 counties, 74 states parks and forests, and over a hundred festivals!
On Monday August 21st I decided to get up before the sunrise and drive down to Vernon Marsh to photograph the sun rising. My sister and mom both were going to come with me, though my sister bailed. Though early, I am very happy with the results that I recieved that morning. The mosquitoes were out and bitting, but the horizon full of clouds with pink coloring.
My cousin Kelsey is getting married this November. To celebrate her big day, my Aunt Michele and Cousin Whitney threw her a brial shower. It was tons a fun with cute games and laughing. The cake and cookies were created and made by the talented Michele and Whitney Schaffner.
