Life is about the stories we tell. Every story is another page in the book of our lives.

I am a story teller. And I want to tell the story of your love ... and your wedding ... this beautiful chapter in your life ... through professional images on your wedding day.

There are no do-overs on your wedding day. That's why quality counts. And professionalism. And experience. Photography experience. And story telling experience. 

Let me tell the story of your love ... contact me to photograph your wedding.

But first, let me share with you some stories here. In words and in the images I captured. I hope they warm your heart.

I think there is a little part of me that believes if I live and breathe and talk about senior portraits, then this snow will MELT and spring will actually get here … that we will start SEEING robins in the yard and tulips and daffodils peeking out of receding snowbanks … and then finally we will have GREEN GRASS!  I’m sure you can relate, right? 

Oh, we Wisconsinites are tough cookies … we brave these subzero temperatures and windchills of 40 degrees below zero and all this snow.  But this year has been something ELSE!  We’ve broken winter records all over the place … becoming the coldest winter on record in more than 100 years, having the most below zero temps on record since the winter of 1916/1917, getting the most snow for a winter (December-January-February) on record with a total of 64.5 inches of snow (and it ain’t over yet!), and having an AVERAGE winter temperature of just 7.7 bone-chilling degrees (Celsius, so for you folks on the Metric method of measurement, that’s BELOW freezing.  Way below.).

So I don’t think any of you can blame me for dreaming … and I’ll bet I’m not alone in this … as visions of summer fill my senses (yes, I’m leaping straight from spring to summer because it’s bound to be a short spring this year anyway, right?).  I can almost FEEL the sun baking down on my back as I sit at my patio table outside watching Lily play on the grass … and SMELL fresh mowed grass from one neighbor mowing his yard co-mingled with the smell of something cooking on the grill for dinner … and SEE the beautiful vivid colors of grass and flowers in the yard … and HEAR the laughter of children playing in the neighborhood and the barking of our neighbor dogs as they come loping over for a pet and a sniff to see if there will be any treats from the grill for them … and TASTE the piece of buttery grilled chicken skin I just swiped from off the grill as it cooks and the glass of homemade wine in my hand.

Doesn’t it FEEL REAL to you, too?  So anyway … I’m gonna do it.  I’m going to focus on senior portraits and PLAN for warmer weather!  So stay tuned for some awesome posts introducing you to each of my senior models over the next few weeks … as we get ready to JUMP RIGHT INTO SUMMER!!!!

Looking outside right now it's hard to imagine spring and summer will ever get here!  Mounds of snow blanket every surface, the windchills continue to persist at nasty subzero temperatures, and the sunshine is little more than a deceptive tease of warm days to come.  But it's true.  Graduation at Merrill High School is exactly 13 weeks from tomorrow.  

So, despite the refusal of winter to give us a reprieve at present, we've got to be planning ahead.  That means it's time to order graduation photo announcements for the Class of 2014, graduation party announcements, extra wallet photos for exchanging with friends before they all scatter for the summer and then head off to college, and any other gift items or orders you've been procrastinating.

Before we can blink, the grass really will be green and ready for mowing, the mosquitos will be back and buzzing in our ears, and the Class of 2014 will officially be high school graduates!

I hate to rush the year along, but I really can't wait for this winter to give way to those warmer temperatures, can you?

Meanwhile, don't forget to get your orders in during this cold snap so we can all enjoy the budding flowers, warm breezes, and the sun on our shoulders when Mother Nature finally turns her thoughts to things of spring!  I can't wait to throw off these layers and head outdoors when the opportunity arises.

Until then, bundle up, cause it's cold out there!  Windchills are expected to get down to around -30 degrees Celcius again here tomorrow morning.

P.S. I can't wait to shed these wool socks for bare feet and flip flops!!!
