  • Rice Lake, Wisconsin Newborn Photographer

    I'm thinking "Spring" and with Spring I think of babies.  Babies of all kinds.  I was in Scotland one Spring when all the lambs were coming.  What a glorious site!  Lambs everywhere!  (I wish I had images of them to show too.)  With all the baby thoughts, I want to share some images that I made of Baby Wrigley.  He is 9 months old now, but here he was as a Newborn, just 3 days old.  He was such a sweet baby.  Isn't he beautiful?!  Does it make you think of Spring too?

    Hailey.  She is one year old already!  Her parents are one of our wedding couples from a few years back.  I love it when we get to photograph the babies of our past brides and grooms.  Hailey kept us on our toes and running for an hour!  She is on a mission and so independent.  By her parent's own admission, she is the center of their world.  I know for a fact that is true for her Grandparents as well!  This location is a cute little park (FFA Park) right here in town.  It's great for small children because they can run and be safe.  Adam & Amber, enjoy your little "sneak peak"!    

  • Pet Photography - Rice Lake Photographer

    After a couple of years of my family begging to get a dog, I had a weak moment and agreed that we should go look at the "Adorable Little Yorkie Puppy" that was advertised in the newspaper.  I was thinking I didn't want a pet in the house - like I need another thing to do!  But, after looking online at the characteristics of the Yorkshire Terrior it seemed he would have all the qualities we are looking for in a dog.  He isn't supposed to shed - #1 prerequisite for me.  He is very sweet and has been sleeping through the night in his crate in Marissa's room.  We had a hard time coming up with a name that all of us liked, but have settled on Riley!  He looks like a Riley, don't you think?

     

    Pets can sometimes be difficult to photograph.  Riley kept coming to me when I got down on his level to get a good angle.  I photograph animals by filling the frame with their face or body and limiting background distractions.  It works well to stand over them and make a noise to get them to look up at you or to get down on their plane and zoom in.  I like to control the settings on my camera so I can use a high aperature that puts the eyes in focus and the background out of focus.  Don't forget to photograph your pets when you first get them - they are only babies for a little while!

    Does anyone have advise on training a puppy?  I'd love to hear from you.  Also, are there some of you who are interested in having your pet photographed?  If there is an interest, I would schedule a couple of days and run a promotion or a fundraiser for a non-profit animal service in our area.
