Ho Ho Ho - Santa Ramage 2013

 David Schlabowske is the deputy director of the WI Bike Fed, and nice guy.
 Patrick,Clay, Gille, and Bradd -I'm lucky I get to work with these silly guys!

This was the 13th Santa Ramage in Milwaukee. I was just an innocent by stander THIS time! I'd like to get suited up next year and ride.

Molly's Mug

                           PIXessory  25mm sterling silver ring
                        Awwwww just a puppy here

Sweet, sweet Molly. I love this quirky little pup! She's my parent's facewasher. Molly is mini goldendoodle and you may have seen her on my blog before (she's blog worthy!).

I recently had a PIXessory made of her in a 25mm ring setting. It's a beauty and a conversation starter for sure!
Looking for that last minute gift? How about a PIXessory of your kid(s) or k-9? Contact me directly for a gift card.Then after the holidays we'll start the ball rolling by setting up a photo shoot. And the next thing ya know you're sporting a beautiful keepsake called a PIXessory!

I handle the photo shoot then hand off the photo gem to Sarah Mann of Mann Studio to create the setting for the PIXessory. 414 453 2060

Cheeseball study

This was for a project I was working as part of a portrait series I'm working on ....those photos you'll see at a much later date.
I found it odd and interesting how the light fell on them and the graphic design of said cheeseballs. Why are they on Styrofoam? Good question. I thought spraying them with a finish would make them less flaky for when I handled them later. It did and didn't.

Facewashers- Butters and Buckwheat


This was my first photo shoot with bulldog puppies. I almost couldn't stand it! I mean LOOK at those mugs! They were named after their new parents- Jackie(Buckwheat) Mike(Butters). Buckwheat was such a playful and wiggly girl! They are double the fun and double the trouble! I had met Jackie years back when she was in Fetch magazine promoting her sweet book "Stinky the Bulldog" based on her dog, you guessed it, named Stinky. He was a wonderful pup that I photographed years later. He is also in my 2014 wall calendar. Jackie is a spitfire full of good energy and has her own company called Fast Foodie- a killer food truck that has tasty Globacos. I also photographed the good eats!
