Jen and Ed Get Married | Milwaukee Wedding Photographer

This past Saturday, Jen and Ed got married! I know Jen from school, we graduated together from Alverno College. We kept in touch and after Ed proposed, Jen asked me to shoot their wedding to which I replied "Of course!" They are a great couple with wonderful friends and family. Saturday was a blast and I am so glad I got to share this special day with them.
On a personal note, Jen and Ed-thank you so much for believing in me when it felt like no one else did. I am so happy for you both and wish you lots of love and happiness (that means smiling Ed!)!! Congrats lovers!

Declan About Town - Milwaukee Portrait Photographer

Yesterday after an exciting day at his reading class (let's learn Baby Signs today!) the temp was a balmy 42* so Declan and I decided to do a photo walk in our town, Port Washington. Port Washington is home to about 11,000 and a gorgeous marina. There are no boats there right now but geese and TONS of goose poop but it is still pretty. We made a pit stop at our favorite coffee shop Smith Brothers Coffee House for a snack before we made our way all the way up Main Street and back down.

Look at that face!

I Heart Faces | Milwaukee Children's Photographer

This week's I Heart Faces challenge is "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes-Anything but a Face" and I knew exactly what photo I was going to enter. This photo was taken during Declan's first trip to the beach this past summer. He wasn't sure what to think of it but I can't wait to take him back. I love those little toes!

Finally Friday

Last Sunday, we went to Illinois for our niece's baptism. I am Dani's godmother and so proud to have the job. Sarah, my middle sister, did a fabulous job playing photog during the ceremony. She was cracking up because I was literally posing every chance I could. What?! I gotta work it!

We ditched cable this week. Kyle and a small panic when I told him what we were doing but he is okay now. I feel so free! I should settle down, it has only been gone for 6 hours...

Ugh, I got hit with a fierce cold this week, seriously. I haven't been this sick in a long time. Feeling much better now, but a little congested still but nothing like Monday-Wednesday! Kyle and Declan seemed to have dodged the bullet.

This coming weekend is jam packed! I have a jewelry party Saturday afternoon, shooting an event Saturday night, bridal meeting Sunday morning and then the BrewCity Roller Derby match! Thanks to Sara M for inviting me!

Here is your dose of the D-Man!

Semi-DIY Camera Bag

All of a sudden, I have outgrown my small camera bag. I knew my stuff wasn't really fitting anymore but it really hit when I was getting ready for a shoot and I had to lug around 2 extra bags to contain all my gear. Oops! So, I set out to find a rolling bag with dividers...I found a bunch but they were $300+ and the color options were black. That is it. Black. Snoozefest. I was then set on making my own. I found a couple blogs that showed how so and so made their own bag but ripping out the lining, stuffing with batting, etc. Yea, that seemed like too much work...

So, then I stumbled onto an old photography forum post and saw that someone recommended Calumet inserts. I knew I didn't want a black bag so I went to Target and found this super cute Embark rolling carry-on bag. And it has blue on it! Perfect!

"Oh my, what a gorgeous bag you have!"

Holds my Shootsac perfectly!
Ta-da! Shazam! Presto! Super cute rolling camera bag!!

Shayla and Tom | Milwaukee Wedding Photographer

The snow fairies had had their way with us several times, having to reschedule our original meeting and first shoot date but finally, Shayla, Tom and I met up at Grant Park in Oak Creek today. The snow from our little blizzard last week was still pretty and new and there was a nice little top coat falling all day. The flakes were perfect!! The snow was knee high or higher in some spots but Shayla and Tom were total troopers, especially Shayla who isn't really used to all this snow.

Enjoy your preview and I can't wait for your June wedding!

Extra, Extra, Read All About It | Milwaukee Wedding Photographer

A few days ago, I put a teaser out there that big things were going to be happening for Something Blue Images and here is the news...

First, there is NO bun in the oven. This tin roof is not rusted. I am not with child, well sure, Declan is here with me but that is it. Sorry family, Declan will be an only child for the foreseeable future. Lord almighty, I could not handle another child right now.

I am now going to be one of the featured photographers and columnists for Port Washington-Saukville Patch!! Every other week, I will have a photo gallery of local images, showing the people and lifestyle of our quaint little town. My weekly column will be called "The Great Escape" (I mean Hello?! Best Steve McQueen movie EVER!) and will feature Ozaukee County businesses and how they offer women ways to escape life in fun ways.

I am so excited to be writing again, for reals. I was the Editor-in-Chief of my college's newspaper and that feels like eons ago. I will post links when my article and gallery are up and running, which should be the middle of next week.

For this weekend, Lia Sophia party (gots to be accessorizin'), meeting a local TV personality for an upcoming story, hanging and banging with Declan and an engagement shoot on Sunday. I think there is something else going on on Sunday too, what could it be? Mmmmmmm....
