Currently: May | Behind the Scenes

Every month I share a Currently post here on the blog to give y’all a little peek at what’s going on behind the scenes and in the backend of my business + what’s happening in my personal life!

CelebratingTurning THIRTY in April! I had a lot to say about my twenties, but I will just leave it at this: do more of the things that set your soul on fire instead of setting yourself on fire to self-destruct.

Listening to… Podcasts! Not so Picture Perfect with Alyssa Hollis, Elise Gets Crafty by Elise Cripe, and Brand It, Build It from With Grace And Gold are three of my current favs.

WatchingGlee. I was searching through my Prime Video purchases and found the first four seasons of Glee. As a fun throwback to my high school/college days, the songs get stuck in my head for days. And it makes for good background noise while I’m editing!

ReadingEast of Eden by John Steinbeck. Falling deep into the story of the Trask and Hamilton families has been keeping me company on the drive to get Justin from work in the morning. And East of Eden > Grapes of Wrath and no one can change my mind.

Counting down to… Wedding Season! I have my first wedding of the year on Friday at Clearwater Harbor and I am so pumped.

Working on… Engagement sessions! Every year I seem to kick off my photography season with a few engagement sessions sprinkled in before wedding season fully starts, and it is such a good feeling to hang out with my couples and get to know them better during their e-sesh!

Planning… Peony Sessions! Kuckuk Farms in Wautoma is hosting Peony Days the weekend of June 11. Who wants pictures in the peonies?!

Booking… Summer family sessions! Has it been a while since you updated your family photos? No better time than summer vacation to get them updated! Get it touch and let’s do the dang thing!

Sending… Emails to my email list! I have some super fun things coming up in the next few weeks — the start of wedding season, summer weddings, and everybody’s favorite… SUNFLOWER MINI SESSIONS. I have also figured out how to bring the sunflowers to my Central Wisconsin friends. Get on the email list to be the first to know when the info drops and bookings go live!

Recovering from a mild concussion… I managed to slam my head against my van trying to get in on accident. 🤦‍♀️

And taking the van to the mechanic every other week because my power steering lines like to blow because of the cold.

Working on some photos I took at the Central Wisconsin Wedding + Fashion Show in January.

Mailing out albums and keepsake boxes and I am so excited for my clients to hold them in their hands.

Using Flodesk to send out updates to my email list every week. Are you getting the party in your inbox?

Wishing y’all a happy Monday + a happy Valentine’s Day!
