Inspirations



February 22, 2009     Personal

It's rare that I can find time to sit down to read, but this morning I made it a point to open up a book I've been craving for the past few months. Much to my surprise, I read the entire book in one sitting and, needless to say, it was amazing and I was inspired. Annie Leibovitz is a name I'm sure most of you are familiar with, being one of the most popular photographers of our time. When I heard that she was coming out with a new book that detailed her work, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Of course I could be immersed in her photographs for hours at a time, but reading her words is like peering into a secret diary that reveals so much about what I have been wondering about. In some ways I can relate with her and in others, she is leaps and bounds ahead of where I am at. I don't see this as a downfall, but rather an inspiration and excitement of where life can take me. If you are a photographer or even someone who is just interested in photography, I highly recommend picking up "Annie Leibovitz At Work".

Deer in the City



February 21, 2009     Personal

Today I didn't get a anything accomplished and I blame these guys (see below)! :) I was supposed to be working on my taxes, but these four deer hanging out in our backyard all day were just too distracting! What's amazing is that we live about 4 miles from downtown Minneapolis. Having wildlife right in our backyard on a regular basis is such a treat! :)

Whisler Fun



February 19, 2009     Personal

There hasn't been a day since we've been back that I haven't thought about Whistler, so I thought I'd share some fun photos that were taken by others in our group (mainly Anne). Going through her photos today had me rolling in laughter - she captured some priceless moments (and many I will not be sharing with you Internet)! :)


This photo that Eric took summed up what they saw all week - me with a big camera in front of my face :)



Anne captured this beautiful photo. I absolutely love it and thinks she should make it into a big canvas print!



Anne also caught me "shredding" down the mountain - hilarious!!



A ski bum took this photo of us enjoying a Kokanee after a day of skiing.

Check out this AMAZING dinner Eric made for me on Valentine's Day! We picked up some fresh marlin from Coastal Seafoods in Minneapolis and it made for the perfect night in! :)

Elise & Bill



February 10, 2009     Weddings

This past weekend I had the honor to photograph Elise & Bill's wedding at The Barn of Barrington, just northwest of Chicago, and it couldn't have been a more perfect day! The unusual 50 degree temperature was definitely a welcomed surprise! :) I am always so excited about each wedding, but when I get to travel for a shoot it adds another thrilling element to the event. There is just something wonderful about shooting in new environments.

Elise & Bill - Thank you so much for bringing us to IL to have have us capture your day! It was truly an honor to be your photographers! Enjoy Cancun! :)



















Isn't the flowergirl just adorable?? :)









These kids were so much fun and AMAZING singers!!
