Alden Hills Farm

I am not a farm girl by any stretch of the imagination. I did have a short phase when I was around 10 years old when I thought I wanted to be... and quickly outgrew that. ;-)

But for some reason I got really excited to do a shoot involving chickens and cows. *shrugs*

I may not want any of my own, but spending an hour or so in their company isn't so bad, especially when you throw in two beautiful people (whose wedding I shot last year and is an all time favorite!!), and some lovely cloud cover followed by dreamy sunset glow. SIGN ME UP.

This was a combined anniversary shoot and farm promotional materials shoot for Alden Hills Organic Farms - if you're in the Walworth, WI area, check them out!

You are witnessing the greatest (fake) display of affection Levi will show for the dog.

I have to say, this was a little unnerving.

Justin & Jessica | Anniversary

Justin emailed me months ago about doing a surprise anniversary session. I don't exactly love having Jessica a lot farther away than she used to be, but in this case distance was useful because it's a lot easier to keep a secret that way... :-) He took work off that Friday, and didn't tell her until she was hinting that he needed to get out the door for work. Sneaky... :-)

I spent the afternoon shooting this very in love couple, eating Kopp's custard (YESSSSS. Best job perks ever!), and spending time with two people I don't get to see nearly enough! We had beautifully overcast skies during the day, and then the sun came out later for that gorgeous sunset glow along the Milwaukee lakefront.


The park was right there... and the spinny thing was tempting
(there is probably a technical name for it but spinny thing works for me)

Cracked. Me. Up.

Them too. ;-)
