New products

These both came out just this year and are a great way to display your images without a frame. They come from the lab ready to hang. The first is a stand-out. They mount the print to the front of the black board. The back side has holes for hanging. As of right now they only come in 8x10, 11x14 and 16x20.

These are float wraps. They wrap the print around a padded board. The back has a small board with holes for hanging. When it is hanging it is about 1 inch of the wall. Both come with a special coating to protect the print. The float wraps come in 8x10, 8x12, 10x10, 10x20, 11x14, 12x12, 16x16 and 16x20.

My new sister..

If you did not read my Thanksgiving day post, my parents were in Taiwan last week for the adoption and as promised, here are two photos of her. She was a bit jet-lagged as you can tell from the first photo. She is 2 1/2 years old and her name is Hope Min-Chia Marie. My mother's middle name is Hope, her given name was Min-Chia and all the girls in my family get Marie for a middle name. I will post more soon, she has the cutest smile and dimples! She was shy at first but a bag of M&Ms seemed to cure that pretty fast and she was okay sitting on my lap.

Wedding October 17th

As promised here are a few more photos from Morgan & Jolene's wedding. They were predicting a rain/snow mix that day but it held off, the colors were at their peak and the sun came out for part of the day. This wedding had the CUTEST ring bearer ever! There is just something about a little boy in a tux and the bow-tie just added to the cuteness. If any of you are ever in need of a massage, Jolene is your girl. She works at The Massage Connection in Appleton and she is fantastic at what she does. Cannot forget about Morgan though whom I have named "groom of the year". He is become quite proud of his new title, so I hear :-) Best wishes!

Green Bay Botanical Gardens

For those of you that have never been to the gardens, I highly recommend it! I love shooting there during the summer but was pleasantly surprised that there were still a lot of great spots there in the fall too.
What more needs to be said about Hailey, just a beautiful girl inside and out. I had a blast with her, mom and her sister. A fun bunch! Also included a family portrait from the gardens. Cute little Jake has been coming in since he was a newborn. Those big brown eyes and long lashes...the girls are going to be chasing him soon enough!

Baby Marie

Such a sweet little baby girl. I could not resist putting the crying photo on here, I love when newbies make those faces!

Engagement session

Congratulations to Tim & Hannah on their upcoming wedding! We met in Madison for this session since that is where they met and started dating. Though this session took place in mid-October it was COLD and even snowed for a bit! They were such troopers and didn't even seem to mind the weather. Such a sweet couple. They are living in different cities until the wedding and you could just see how happy they were to be together again.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I know I have been quite a slacker on my blog lately and promise to make some serious post updates soon. It has been busy not only with my photography but with my family life. My parents left last friday for Taiwan to adopt my new sister, Hope. It was been a long process as anyone that has ever adopted would know. She is two and half and just adorable. I will be picking them up at the airport on saturday and cannot wait to finally meet her! I already have one sister that I have a blast with whenever we get together (and the same with my brother for that matter) so cannot wait for a new sister to make memories with. Pictures to come soon! I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving day and realizes all they things they have to be thankful for not just today but everyday.

A lovely surprise and a sneak peek...

I really do treasure getting thank you cards from my brides and grooms. This is such a huge chapter in someone's life and to get to document it is so exciting. It is hard not to get chocked up when I see a groom cry...and wonderful to laugh along with all the happy moments of the day. I came to work several days ago to find this beautiful bouquet and card waiting for me sent from the bride and groom of my October wedding. So beautiful and colorful that I have to share! I also put an image from their wedding...more to come soon!

Engagement session

Congratulations to Troy & Noel on their engagement! Such a fun couple to photograph. I love to see how the couples interact before the big day and these two had no trouble warming up the camera. Check back in December for the wedding photos!
