Wassail in Black & White

Rittenhouse Wassail

The Old Rittenhouse Inn in Bayfield has a beautiful holiday tradition – Wassail Dinner Concerts. The whole Inn is decorated for the holidays.  It is absolutely gorgeous, and the food is incredible. I was there earlier this weekend for a shoot, and I decided to edit these particular ones in black & white in Lightroom.…

Storytelling – Candle Makers on Madeline Island

Madeline Island Candles

I don’t only do dog photography – I also do commercial editorial and storytelling photography (you can see some of it on my commercial website). I geek out at how things are made, and my shoot at Madeline Island Candle Company was no exception.  My photography was recently featured on their blog – check it…

Eloping on Lake Superior

Dog in a wedding

Last week I had the honor of shooting Nori & Trevor’s beautiful Lake Superior elopement. Their very handsome canine companion Edison served as ring dog/dog of honor/best dog, and Nori’s dad served as the officiant.  Nori and Trevor stood on the shore of the lake at Bayview Beach with their families circled around them. Congratulations…

AppleFest Engagement!

AppleFest Engagement

Last weekend was AppleFest in beautiful Bayfield!  I had arranged to sit on a float to do my usual “photos of the crowd” for the parade, but the morning of the parade, Joe sent me a message telling me he had big plans for Emily that day.  He had talked to the fire department and…

Bayfield WI storm photos-10

Yeah – it seems like it may be a bit early for this type of storm, but since I am a weather geek who enjoys getting her camera doused with water, I’m totally ok with it!  Also – I’m pretty sure my favorite photo here is the one with the canoe. Ha! I got some…

Sandhill Crane Family!

This week I am over on Madeline Island teaching my Photo 101 class at the Madeline Island School of the Arts.  We’re having a blast (even though I am sicker than a dog), and I got to capture these awesome images of the resident crane family while we were on break :).  They are SO…

May 21st – and we still have ice… but it’s pretty ;)

lake superior ice bergs-9

Needless to say, this winter was incredibly cold!  The ice is still on the lake, and it’s taken the form of ice bergs. They’re everywhere – even the ferry had to cancel last night’s last trip because of fog and floating ice. My friend Mary got some incredible shots this past week on her boat…
