Addison is sure one cute little girl. For some reason when told to smile she does this dinosaur smile. At least according to me it’s a dinosaur smile. Addison is going to have so much fun growing up with her mom. I imagine they will dance and laugh alot.
Tina is about my favorite person in the world. And Nick is probably my fourth favorite person in the world! AND THEY GOT MARRIED! It was a nice little ceremony at the HIlton Head with family members. The day was easy and cute and heartfelt. Good work team. I’m glad I got to be at your wedding! I did get to the wedding about an hour before the ceremony….a little stressful….but it works! Tina wore a dress she got at BHLDN-which is the Anthropologie wedding dress store. SO CUTE. SO SO CUTE. One of my favoritest dresses so far. And Tina couldn’t quit smiling. It was perfect.
I kind of have the best time in the whole world in Ashland. The northern Wisconsin. It feels good. You should go on vaca there or talk your friends into getting married up there so i can shoot their wedding! I am shooting a wedding in Bayfield area this weekend–at the beach! I went to this Meyers Beach to scope out the scene. I had this lovely drive in the rolling hills and was listing to the Lumineers. Do you notice when you’re doing something really awesome and you have on good music on the adventure is like 73% better!!! This is true. I did this drive and came across Wisconsin’s Northern Most Post Office. So that’s something-right? They also have beers at the store in town and I bought some and drank one at the beach. I should be doing this everyday.
Oh yeah. My sister had a baby. This baby is pretty damn cute huh???
it’s the ZOE ZADIE baby! ohmygod she is the happiest cutest baby ever. She is very happy in the morning and she loves to ride on the dogs back. They have adventures around the house. and man, can she swing. she can swing on that swing all day. that’s why she has that flat spot on the back of her head. Maybe this flat spot is normal. I’m not sure.
So the funnest (most fun-is the proper wording i think–you knew what i meant.) things happen in the northern WI. We go to the black cat coffee shop every most days. I’m a good worker when I’m there-it’s strange that i’m starting to know some of the towns folk. ok, not that strange since they are mostly Theresa & Gary’s friends. Theresa is the sister. Gary is the bro in law. Zoe is the baby. Dutchess is the dog. Gary is the best at going to the coffee shop. I knew he would let me take his photo there–sometimes he can’t be bothered with me & my camera. I get it….sometimes I’m around too much with that thing.
One of my favoritest restaurants is right outside of Washburn. The Good Tyme. I think this is one of those play on words. People love a good play on words. I sometimes do. They have these moscow mules drinks that come in a copper cup. This drink is supposed to come in a copper cup-it makes it legit! Does anyone know where I can get this drink + the cup in Madison? it’s so fun! I think about this drink a lot. We went there with some of Theresa’s classy friends. I like them.
So I guess this is mostly what I do up here: drink coffee, baby hang outs, eat food, & go on dog walks. It’s perfect & lovely.
-IN CONCLUSION: GET MARRIED IN THE BAYFIELD AREA. I WANT TO SHOOT YOUR WEDDING UP THERE!–
Jodie and Luis have the best ideas ever! ok, I think it might be Jodie with the ideas but I’m pretty sure Luis is backing her up 100%! These guys are getting married this Saturday! It’s gonna be good-I’m super excited for all of their kick ass decorations! There’s gonna be banners and flags & barn doors! i’m not positive about this but i’m pretty sure!
For the engagement session we went all over the town! Ice skating, Mother Fool’s Coffee shop, the record store-MadCity Music, & then a snuck in a couple at Sardine. I love an adventure and these guys were up for it! The other most romantic thing happened during the engagement shoot….I think Jodie was very concerned with her eye or there was a giant bug in her eye (details–this shoot was when there was still ice!) and Luis so nicely was doing some eye examining and it was a cute little moment to see.
Rosy makes the cutest skirts ever! you will need to own one. I own a few of Rosy originals in my life and i must say they have made me 20-32% happier. and she made me the cutest cutest kitten t-shirt. I will wear it everyday forever.
she sells her wears on the internets here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/RecreativeCrafts
or you can visit her at the farmers market on Saturdays! she’s on State Street.
and she’s a delight to hang out with. i bet if you ask her to tell you a joke she will. i may or may not be right about this.
I have these cousins. They have kids. I have probably put them on the blog before, I imagine I have at least. I like them. Mostly photo shoots have been feeling like i’m just hanging out with friends which is great! The only difference is that when i’m shooting photos rather than just hanging out i’m not drunk. i’m kidding.
Kid photos are fun. Kids do kid things and I take photos, it’s the best! Sometimes I say things like “hey! you should look over here and smile!” Sometimes they do and sometimes they run away. Hey, that’s fine. They probably have a plan. I can get on board with that. I did take these kids to the junk yard. I knew before I even got there that it’s not the smartest idea. I will not bring kids to the junk yard again. I will bring them to the park or some other nice location without rusty nails and old tires full of water. lesson learned. oxox
I’ve shot the Wallace family twice now. They are good at getting their photo taken, laid back & easy. We talked about doing the photos at the grocery store….this didn’t happen. But who comes up with ideas like that? awesome people do! we’ll do the grocery store next time! I be the puppy is a real dog now! I must come over and hang out with that dog again! please!!!! oh, and we should do a photo of Avery on his long board in the grocery store parking lot.
The delightful Wallace family lives right off of Park street and we did all the photos with in walking distance to the house. The taco place! and this yellow building that may or may not be a chinese restaurant & their backyard.
Have you guys noticed that the weather is dreamy dreamy dreamy! You should probably get some family photos taken! I have some really good location ideas! how about little america! We can go there when it’s open or not open. unless there is a fence. then I guess we’ll have to jump the fence! I know I have more ideas they just aren’t coming to me right now.
or i can make you sit on a median in the middle of the road like i did with the Kia & Brett team! it’s safe. don’t worry. the cars will probably hit me before they get to you. or i guess it could also go the other way around. sign up for photos now!
Kia and Brett make cute babies. clearly. We had a lovely afternoon shooting at the studio and then out in the world.
Shooting the heidi-chad team was a delight & a joy. These guys want to have fun. I would be like….ok, I think we got it guys! right on! then they would be doing headstands against the wall. How could I not shoot that? and the hula hooping was just them waiting for their turn to be photographed. Oh, man….I should be claiming these photos were all my idea! I know fun when i see it. FUN. RIGHT HERE! bam. ok, happy monday. Everyone should get some family photos taken. Because I like taking them and I bet you will enjoy having them! oxox sv
