Sauk Creek Alpacas

Lynne said goodbye to her 17 alpacas Saturday afternoon. She’s had them for quite some time and is ready for her next chapter in life. I’ll always admire her commitment and dedication to these amazing and quirky animals. She’s the most sincere and caring woman and would do anything for her “girls” as she would refer to the majority of them.

I found out Friday that they were leaving so I instantly asked Lynne if I could photograph her with them for the last time. There may be a few tears still wet on my face from looking at the images. Ah, change. I feel for Lynne.

The gang is still together down at a farm in Illinois; the best situation knowing they have each other.

Family Lifestyle Session – Madison, Wisconsin

I’ve been getting to know Marcia the last few weeks because I see her for chiropractic care. She’s full of so much amazing knowledge! I could talk with her for days. This session was exciting because I finally met her husband and adorable 4-year-old. We started at Schuster’s Farm in Deerfield, but boy, on a Sunday afternoon in October, that place is nuts! I found an alternative spot that was quiet and lovely just down the road with all sorts of fun things. We ended the session back at Schuster’s picking pumpkins. I think we got some cute ones.

Family Lifestyle Session – Madison, Wisconsin

Not only do I photograph this family every year, but I had the honor of photographing their daughter’s birth a few years ago. They’ll be having their second in a few months and I can’t wait to be there for them again. : ) Love this family.

Lifestyle Session and Surprise Engagement!

I’ve known this family since high school so it was really fun to photograph them for a few hours on an early Saturday morning in August. This family is so full of joy and laughter! I couldn’t stop laughing myself. They are always having a great time.

The plan was to take some portraits of various family members together and then to take some candids of the family just hanging out since a few were from out of town. They were having a send off party for Jerry later on that day because he was going into the Navy.

I started off taking taking photos of the parents and a few others that were there because Jerry and his girlfriend hadn’t arrived yet … All of a sudden the dad said quietly, “Jerry’s proposing to Laura today.” “Eek!! How cool! Thank you for the heads up.” : ) A few minutes later Jerry and Laura showed up so it was their turn to have their picture taken. After a few clicks of the shutter, Jerry got down on one knee and proposed to Laura. A-d-o-r-a-b-l-e.
