Northern Lights | Madison WI Photographer

Last Wednesday night's solar storm brought a beautiful display of Northern Lights, which were visible from the Madison area all throughout the evening. I spent hours watching rolling waves spread across the horizon, and the lengthly storm even meant I was able to get it from multiple locations. 

 

Engagement: Leah & Justin

From our first meeting I knew Leah, Justin and I were going to get on famously. We spent 4 hours at that first meeting talking about mutual love of gardens, geekiness, this awesome city of Madison, and adorable cat antics. It could have easily gone on longer. 

And the engagement session? Was every bit as much fun. We visited the beautiful UW Arboretum last week on the perfect spring night, and took a beautiful walk together. These two radiate joy and love, for each other but also for everything around them. I'm so excited for their wedding day next month!

Snowfall | Madison WI Childrens Photographer

Apart from a couple of cold snaps we've had so little winter this year, it's hard to believe it's already March and that by next month the first little green buds of spring will be appearing.

My daughter loves the snow, and I love her exploring spirit. I snapped these shots quick on the way to pick up her brother from school yesterday. In 2017 I'm working hard to remind myself to take real photos of my own kids because I was especially lacking last year.

Ice Castles Wisconsin | Madison WI Photographer

We took advantage of the way above average February temps today to check out Ice Castles in Wisconsin Dells, and are very glad we did. The kids (aka all of us) had a fantastic time exploring the castle and enjoying the outside play time. 

Lastly, here is proof that being a professional photographer who works with dozens and dozens of families every year doesn't mean your family will just let you take lovely photos of them. Ha!
