The leaves are really falling now, but I was able to take some family photos a few weeks ago at Lapham Peak in Delafield when they were still hanging on. Along for the shoot was Lisa R. and her kids Nate and Alyssa, as well as Nate’s girlfriend Amber and their dog Gaby.
When it’s fall in southeast Wisconsin, families head to Ebert’s Greenhouse Village in Ixonia. Pumpkins, corn stalks, wagon rides, animals, games – the place has everything. It’s beautiful walking through the grounds that are covered in a carpet of colorful mums this time of year.
So I was excited when Family B. wanted (Tim: agreed) to […]
This time of year – when the leaves start to change and the golden corn is harvested – always seems a little bittersweet. While the sun accentuates all the natural beauty, I have to accept that the days are getting darker and colder … and soon the trees and fields will be bare.
So, I’m going to rewind to […]
Damian F. loves to hunt and ride on his ATV. So, naturally, he wanted to incorporate his hobbies into his senior portrait shoot on July 18.
We dodged the rain that day, but it was still muddy and the mosquitoes were pestering us as we walked and rode around my parents’ farm in Lebanon.
I identified a […]
Sunflower Days at Pope Farm Conservancy. I heard about it for the first time on Tuesday after scrolling through my Wisconsin Trails e-newsletter and then again on Thursday from my good friend, Julie.
I finally clicked online to read an article written by my former internship editor, Chelsey Lewis, and quickly checked for updates on the Facebook page for […]
Just a few days ago, miss Evelynn B. turned 3! She’ll celebrate with a birthday party tomorrow, along with her mom Heather, dad Tim, baby sister Eleanor and many other family members and friends. She was excited to try out some “poses” that her uncle Matt taught her for this summer photo shoot a couple of […]
It’s been 17 years since we last had a family reunion on my mom’s side at our farm. Since then, the Hennings have added spouses and children, moved across the country and lost some loved ones … and also hair. But we haven’t lost our smiles and ability to reconnect.
We enjoyed an absolutely beautiful day catching up, […]
I have always admired my mom.
She is loving, kind, beautiful and selfless.
She puts her family first. She has steadfast faith. She’s super healthy (she exercises and eats all her fruits and veggies – every day). She speaks her mind – even if it’s silly – and I love her for it.
And, I may be biased, but […]
The day before and after the Chequamegon Bay Birding and Nature Festival in Ashland, my mom and I spent time at our family’s cabin in St. Germain. I try to make it up there at least once a year because it is such a special place.
No, it’s not a giant log cabin with floor to ceiling […]
Although my mom and I extended our trip up north to our family’s cabin in St. Germain, the last day of the Chequamegon Birding and Nature Festival was Saturday, May 16. We planned that day with an early morning boat cruise aboard the Island Princess to Stockton Island, the largest and most biologically diverse island […]
