Andy & Elizabeth {Rice Lake Wedding}

On a winter day that was almost the complete opposite of the previous year (yeah, remember that "blizzard wedding"?), two great people got married. I don't know if I've ever been able to say that a day was absolutely perfect in every way, but Andy & Elizabeth's wedding day was! There was a perfect amount of snow, it was warm (for December in WI), and everything went just as it was supposed to.

Liz and Andy - I already said it, but what a perfect day! It was an honor to be able to document your day and meet your families! I hope you had a great "mini" honeymoon! :)

Getting Ready

Liz and Andy chose to do a First Look and it helped the day run so much more smoothly!

These are always some of my favorites of the ceremony - listening to their soon-to-be spouse's vows.

We did a few portraits at sunset after the ceremony, and I love how they turned out!

Alaina Lynn {Somerset Newborn}

Back in October, I did maternity portraits for a couple my husband & I know well - Andrew & Bethany. We've been lucky enough to document their life together - from engagement, to wedding, to maternity... and now newborn!

Alaina Lynn was born on November 19th and we were able to do her newborn portraits when she was just under 2 weeks old. She did wonderfully for the time we spent doing pictures! She slept for a lot of the time and only peed once. :)

Congratulations Andrew & Bethany! Alaina is beautiful! I can't wait to watch her grow up!

I absolutely love how comfy she looks in this basket - foot over the edge & everything!

We had to get some Christmas-y portraits, of course.

Nicole {Barron Maternity}

Wedding, maternity, newborn... it seems like so many of the couples whose weddings I've photographed are progressing to the next big "milestone" in their lives - having babies! I was super excited to head to Jake & Nicole's house to do some maternity portraits. We started out inside and then headed out to their park... I mean, backyard. What a beautiful spot to take some photos!

Congratulations Jake & Nicole! I can't wait until I can come back in a few months. :)
