Easy Creme Brulee

I mentioned on my About Me page that my husband is an amazing chef. He cooks most of my family's meals and desserts are his specialty! This past weekend, I suggested his yummy creme brulee would make the perfect blog post. Not only is it delicious, it's surprisingly easy to prepare. First, get your ingredients together - eggs, heavy whipping cream, sugar and vanilla. [...]

Apostle Islands Ice Caves

Earlier this week, my good friend Steph (of Stephanie Dunn Design, LLC) and I made the pilgrimage to the ice caves on Apostle Islands, just off of the coast of Lake Superior. This has been quite the popular place this winter from tourists all over the country. Typically, the lake ice isn't thick enough to support the mile trek from the Meyer's beach entrance out to th[...]

Newborn Baby B

I took photos of this adorable newborn and his family last weekend. I have taken photos of his big sister before and have been looking forward to meeting this little guy.

I bought some old barn wood to use[...]

I captured a few images over the holiday[...]

Hello world!

Hello world, and welcome to my blog! I have never blogged before, but have always wanted to give it a try. Thus, I went through a complete redesign of my website, bought a new Wordpress theme, and voila - let the blogging begin!

Little L Turns 1!

Little L turned 1 year old last week! I first met this cutie when he was 6 months old. His parents were kind enough to ask me to document his first birthday party and we had a blast! The theme was "firefighter". His parents had some very creative ideas for decorating in the theme - note the adorable "stop, drop and roll" candy buckets... I also made him a little birth[...]
