Atwood Barber Shop. It’s the best.

I did these photos at the Atwood Barber Shop for the Madison Magazine. I loved it. I loved all the minutes I was there. You should get your hairs cut there. I walk by the barber shop some and most days. It’s on the way to my coffee shop office where I do the clicks. I always would think someone should have me take photos there. I told the Madison Magazine my plan and they said. Yes. ok. Do it. I was stoked.

There are 4 barbers there. Terry, AJ, Eddie, and Jason. They are all a delight. I think Jason was the least impressed with me being there. and hey. That’s ok too. Terry is very popular. Bus drivers stop to say hi. Delivery drivers stop in. He waves to about 1 out of every 10th person that walks by. And he waves to me now. I like it.

When I was there one day Tory Miller (he’s got those Madison famous restaurants like Graze and Sujo) stopped in to get his hairs cut but left cause it was too busy. I told Josh about this and he told me his barber shop better not fill up with a bunch of damn hipsters now. ūüôā

I love the barber shop. Everybody was really nice about letting me take their photo. And they didn’t over photo perform. That’s always the best. There was only one guy who grunted at me when I asked if I could take his photo. I think that meant no. So I didn’t take his photo. No problem.

Andi at the Madison Magazine wrote the words for this piece. She’s amazing. I want her to be at all my shoots.

Best of 2016

I have the time. I should look at all the photos I took in 2016. This is like a good thing to do that will make me grow as a photographer. Right? I hope so. Ask me in July if I feel grown. I can tell you right now I’m sick of looking at all the photos I took in 2016. But wait there were some good times! I loved all the photo adventures I got to have!!!! I got to shoot bikes! bikes and people. Tons of them! loved it. I always love going to the sewer district and getting to see in people’s houses. I got to see people be awkward during headshots. ¬†I would try so hard with my whole heart to not say something weird. Mostly I did a really good job. I talked about restaurants and tv shows and tried to find out all their secrets. I love all my Madison Magazine shoots! you know like at least 75%. People in love are always nice. There are no bridezillas in Madison, WI. It’s been years since I’ve¬†had one. I also think all brides probably want to be nice to me cause I’m¬†taking their photo so there’s that. Talking to the bridesmaids might be a whole other story. (insert funny emoiji here.)

I took photos in schools, at the humane society, in restaurants, up by the Capitol, in rooms with beautiful windows, and in rooms with no windows. I took photos of cats, mice, bikers, businessy people, trans people, comedians, pizza makers, mentors, friends, orange and white, teachers, grandparents, and people drinking.

yeah 2016. yeah.

Sister Sara and her cute cute family

Sister Sara, Bro Andy, and those kids Leo & Sam!!!! Josh & I finally made it to Portland, OR to visit!!!!! We had lots of family fun times. There was a backyard bbq, some school drop offs & pick ups, a trip to the craft hang outs, & then a picnic in the park. Eating with kids is not pretty. That is what I learned. It’s a mess. And that Sam is really good at pouring out his drink. He would get his own table if he lived with me. They are so fun having the most fun. All. the. time. except when they aren’t. Then the world might be ending. But it never did. ¬†oxoxo

The District. It’s really the sewer.

I have a favorite client. It’s true. I love shooting at the sewer. They call it The District so I call it The District too. You can take a tour–did you know? Anyone can take a tour. And it’s so pretty. They have the coolest architecture and all the buildings have beautiful windows with beautiful window light. I’ve been there so many times that I recognize the workers. I like that. And man are they nice. I almost wonder if they send out a company email that says, “The photographer is coming today. Be nice. Do whatever she wants with a smile on your face and then ask if there is anything else you can help her with.” cause that’s pretty much how it goes. Michael, the¬†Chief Engineer & Director, is the greatest to work for. He’s on my side. And let me tell you–if you’re on my side. I’m on your side.

Madeline Island Adventure!

MADELINE ISLAND!!! We did one night with Theresa & the Zoe and then the next night with Cass and Rafa. Cass took us on a biking/cliff walking adventure. She knows all the cool places on the island. Which I appreciate. I mostly just want someone to show me the cool stuff. The cliffs are so cool and the Lake Superior is kinda the best.

There were some fire fights where I would build the perfect fire and Josh would knock it over. But I’m pretty sure he sees how awesome my fire making is and will change his ways. or i’ll have to go camping alone if I want to build my fire. NBD. We drank some beers, ate some food, watched the fire. It was very campy. I liked it.

Iron Pour! Hearts Style!

Wisconsin folks are so bad ass!!! It’s cold. Man, it is cold. There was an iron pour one block from my house-how fun is that?! and cold. I met the delightful Alyssa from FeLion Studios¬†a few months ago. This gal is a fun go-getter! She made all the states into cast iron skillets–I desperately need the Wisconsin one. It’s soooo cute. I hung out at the Sector67 for a few hours shooting some photos, drinking a few beers, and watching how an iron pour goes down. It was a good Saturday!
