WOW! So MANY questions come to mind when you see a place like this. Like when did you start your Santas, Mrs. Clauses , bears, angels, mouses, gingerbread men, snowmen, chorus singers, penguins, lollipops, elves and one alien collection? How much is it worth? Do you secretly plug into your neighbors outlets at night? Are you still collecting? I really really truly LOVE that people are this wacky. The bonus- they had a HIGH Voltage sign posted on the fence. Ha ha what a hoot! House is located in Bloomington, IL. HAPPY HOLIDAZE!

I met Therese at Bender Park(Oak Creek) which is along Lake Michigan. The sky was a beautiful mix of clouds and blues when we started, but quickly changed to pure darkness. It was a race against light. We lost. A week later I came to her house and photographed the gang inside.
Archie(cat) funny enough is the alpha dog. Essie is a shy girl ( black) while Sam (tan) was happy go lucky. They are greyhounds that were race dogs. Speaking of which, at the end of December 500 greyhounds will need to find a home. Otherwise, they'll be placed on other tracks in the country. Check out http://www.greyhoundpets.org/

I heart Halloween! My sweetie, Joe and I went as the classic Spy vs Spy. Joe worked his magic creating this amazing costume! I'm a bit bias tho. And yes, it did get HOT being under the felt hat and face mask, but it was sooooooooo worth it! We met up with friends at Turner Hall ballroom for a night of fun frolic.

Meet Blake(baby) Ryan (4 yr. old) Kristi & Dan(the easy going parents). Ryan was quite the inquisitive boy. Asking repeatedly (WHY x 20) is the light going on and off? Plus other endless questions. I found out during the shoot that Ryan is dressing up as Curious George for Halloween. Hmm. At one point, Ryan decided it was really funny to play hide and seek from the photographer. :) Towards the end of the shoot the family could no longer stay awake. They were just too tuckered out from all the fun that mornning! The end.

I had been wanting to do another motorcycle shoot while riding on a back of a bike since last summer. Last summer, I had photographed Fritz (a cute white miniature schnauzer ) on the back of a Harley. This past Saturday, yep in the cold weather, my dear friends Kris, Randy, Joe, Kris's parents' Kathy and Bill did just that. It was a fun but chilly ride. BIG thanks to Bill & Randy for the safe but enjoyable ride! Thanks to Joe for warming up my frozen hands after the shoot. Last but not least, thanks to Kris and Kathy for coming along for the ride! ha ha get it?

Just for fun, my friend Troy and I went out to the biking trails in Tosa. He wanted to hone his mad biking skills, and I wanted to shoot just for the FUN of it. FYI-I'm a BIG fan of action shots! When he's not biking, Troy's got a camera wrapped in his hands. Check out his wonderful world of images at http://www.troyfreund.com/.

I was hired (once again) by Community High School to work with their students on a photo/essay project. I always look forward to working with their students. In fact, I'd say I get pretty excited to be part of any project at CHS. http://www2.milwaukee.k12.wi.us/community/home.html . I can't say enough good things about the school. Here are a few from that day.
