In my spare time...

As much as I love to photograph people I first fell in love with photographing landscapes, nature, buildings, anything really. Digital has brought photography such a long way but there are many days that I miss film! I recently pulled out my daylab to play around with polaroid transfers but of course, I don't decide to do this until 9:30 at night. So, I stayed up way too late...but it was worth every minute!

Polaroid transfer

Polaroid emulsion transfer. Basically you are using one side of the film for the transfer and the other side it lifted off for the emulsion transfer.

A future photographer?

I brought my niece Lexi to work with me today for bring your daughter to work day (her mom is currently a student). Had a blast taking her on a photo shoot at a nearby park, she got some great shots and really enjoyed it. Here is one of my favorites!

Miss B is all grown up

This little sweetie came in as a newborn and I know I say it all the time but I can't believe how much they change in that first year! She wasn't quite walking which is the best time to come in for the one year portraits because most times when they walk, then start to run pretty soon after.

I know my blog has been neglected lately...life has been busy as usual. Our house is on the market now which is bittersweet for us. It was our very first house and we love it and all the character but plan to move my business into the home in the near future so we need something bigger and closer to Kaukauna. I have also been keeping busy with some personal projects. I love creating art with my polaroid transfers and shooting landscapes. I am really trying to get out there more and do it since that it what first got me hooked on photography. Some pictures of those to come soon. I am loving this warm weather lately!!
