This past weekend, I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer my time to help out some awesome girls! Partnering with the Brown County Historical Society on Saturday, the Junior Girl Scouts of Green Bay joined me and a few other photographers at the Brown County Library to earn their Digital Photography badge! Seriously, how cool is that?! Having been a Girl Scout myself for most of my childhood, this opportunity was very special to me. My years as a Girl Scout taught me so much! I feel honored to return the favor and teach the Girl Scouts of today. I loved spending time with the girls and helping them achieve their goals.

Cameras in hand, we walked around Downtown Green Bay and photographed the beauty that is this city. I shared what to look for when taking a photo and offered ways to get different perspectives and angles. It was so fun to see the girls’ faces light up when they made a photo that they loved! After we completed our tour, we headed back to the library for a little editing and printing lesson. With the photos they made, the picked their favorite and created a fun greeting card!

Thanks ladies for being SO awesome! Keep those cameras in hand and continue to find beauty in the everyday!

Celebrated Easter on Sunday! I adore this holiday and I enjoyed putting on my floral dress this Sunday, going to church, and celebrating with my family. Such a beautiful day!

Photographed sweet little Rosie on Tuesday! She is already six months old! Where does the time go?!

Photographed my friend, Sydney, and her husband, Ian, on Thursday! I visited them at their home and made the most wonderful images there! There is something so lovely and comfortable about photographing people in the place they love!

New Favorite: My new do! I’m terrible at keeping up with my hair but I finally remembered to book an appointment this month and yesterday was the day! Thanks to my awesome friend, Christopher at Anagen Eleven, who is always a magician when it comes to hair! I’m so grateful!

Thankful: Easter! I’m SO thankful for this holiday and what it represents. It’s always such an emotional and incredible day of celebration.

Brandon and Hailey first met in high school. Brandon was two years ahead of Hailey and good friends with her cousin. They didn’t get to know each other very well until about five years later. After they both graduated, Hailey returned to their high school over her winter break from UW-Madison to watch her sister’s JV basketball game, only to find that Brandon was the coach! They started talking and hung out the entire time during her winter break. They finally “officially” started dating in January of 2012 and as they say, “the rest is history.”

On a weekend getaway to Door County last August, Brandon proposed! He had been planning for months, first by asking Hailey’s parents for their blessing. Then scheming with his friends to make sure they could come along so Hailey wouldn’t get suspicious, thinking it would just be another couples’ weekend. When they finally headed up to Door County, Hailey didn’t think anything was coming. It was a rainy weekend but they decided to explore Cave Point County Park anyway. Luckily, the rain stopped for a little while and Brandon knew that was his moment! He gave his friend the signal to go hide so he could photograph the whole thing without Hailey noticing. Hailey recalls this beautiful moment, “After enjoying the scenery, Brandon turned to me and said, ‘So, here’s the real reason I brought you out here…’ I immediately realized what was happening and blacked out! He said he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, pulled out a ring, got down on one knee, and proposed. Through tears of joy, I happily said ‘yes!'”

I am overjoyed for this couple! Their kind hearts and fun spirits make them such a delight to be around! We met up for their spring-inspired Engagement Session at Crossroads at Big Creek just a few weeks ago. They looked too cute together, I loved all their real smiles and giggles! I cannot wait for their wedding this November at the Timber Rattlers Stadium!

Along with her beautiful engagement ring, Hailey also wore this ring that belonged to her grandmother!

Thanks to Ebb & Flow Flowers for the bouquet and Dana Michele Makeup for Hailey’s hair & make-up!
