Olive You

Meet Olive. The sweet little girl I got to spend some time with Saturday morning.

I've never seen someone go through so many emotions so quickly - from wide-eyed curiosity to laughter to serious hunger.

Here, she may have first noticed her hands.

And then look at those cute little feet.

I love this mother-daughter moment. So precious.

And Daddy could calm her down in a second.

Here's to the new family.

Family of Five

Meet the Warner family, who I had the honor of taking photos of a few weeks ago. I got to spend time with Angela, her fiance Chuck, and her kids Stella, Colin and Liam.

I have to say, the kids made my day. They were total hams--cheesing it up in front of the camera and being goofy any chance they had.

Colin mostly wanted to give me crazy faces, but he had a great smile once we found it.

Stella was crazy cute with her hat. And very eager for camera time.

Liam's eyes were awesome. Clear blue.

Near the end of the session, I got to take some engagement shots of Angela and Chuck. I thought they might have trouble gazing lovingly into each others' eyes with the kids jumping around behind the camera, but the minute they turned their attention toward each other they lit up. Clearly a very beautiful couple who is very in love. They made my job easy.

A Peek at Petals

A few weeks ago I was at the Como Park Conservatory. That place has very cool tropical flowers and leaves bigger than my body. It's insane. I took some shots. Hopefully they make you feel like Winter isn't just around the corner.

The grounds around the conservatory are nice, too.

This wasn't taken there but I love daisies, so I threw it in here.

Gallery Opening

Tim moved Gallery Forty-Two to downtown Sturgeon Bay and had an opening called "What's with the faces." It was a great show. Check out the art here. The very talented Jana Nyberg sang jazz, accompanied by Jake Nyberg and Lee Tomboulian. It was an explosion of creativity (and artichoke dip) in there.

This wasn't a Tim piece, but I saw something nice in the simplicity of this water fountain (bubbler, if you wish). Might be my favorite shot of the night.

Autumn Happens

I feel like we got cheated out of fall this year--but this is what I caught.

This isn't very Fall-ish, but I liked the lights in the tree anyway.
