I need to learn to enjoy those happy photos that clients love to purchase. Currently I appear to be stuck it the dark and moody phase of things, and they don't always buy those.

In this case, I loved the short light and really took it to the next level using my bokeh textures that appear on so many of my images. It is here if you want it: (https://gumroad.com/l/Irog).

I am sure I will be posting some happier images from this session, but it's these images that really draw me in and seem to get all of the retouching love.

Several new images published in this month's Beaux Couture Magazine. This one features Sarah wearing a gown designed by Silversärk with make-up and hair by Robyn Schlei.

This was shot inside of the historic Pabst Mansion. Huge thanks to them for giving us a chance to shoot in such an amazing location!

Special thanks to Evie for arranging such an awesome evening.

Messing around with a bit of digital painting a few weeks ago. I have been using Artrage and a few other apps to make these. On average they take about 5 hours, but they are a nice way to relax and binge-listen/kinda watch to something on Netflix.

Many more newborn sessions in the past week, so expect a flood of those soon. Also, a few fashion shoots under my belt will yield a ton of new ladies soon, but many are headed to publication today, so a bit of a delay there.

Sometimes those models have issues with the props on the set... and sometimes the photographer takes a quick picture of it happening. :-)

Kim here was a real trooper in dealing with the stuff laying around this room, and I think she was hamming it up a bit because she knew I was going to take this shot.

The storm of little babies continues at the studio. Rest assured I also have some fashion coming soon, as I had a pretty large shoot last week that yielded quite a few stunning images.

Our new blog is also getting daily love:

So many babies this week! I think this is our 7th in less than 5 days. They are a lot more fun to shoot than I thought they would be. Styling is fun at any age, and the posing is really the challenge. Lighting is pretty simple, but I think I can improve on what the typical newborn photographer is using, but time will tell.

We also started blogging some of our sessions with some things we have learned as well as tips. What are your thoughts?

Most of you don't know this, but my partner and I shoot a ton of #newborn babies at our studio. It isn't the sexy fashion or fine art stuff you are used to seeing in my feed, so I have been skipping it. However, since that is most of what I have been working on, the feed needs some content. :-)

Connie and are two of the top newborn and #maternity photographers in the Milwaukee area. We love shooting these, and you can still have a ton of fun styling and wrapping them around a theme.

Just got back from speaking at this years ImagingUSA in Texas. Was a great time, and the room was packed! I had a great time, met a ton of new people, and didn't trip on stage. :-)

This year I am shooting high-school senior portraits in the modern way, as well as the more traditional style. I prefer this painterly look, but I am not sure it will fly with the kids these days. Thoughts?

Got the cover of Shotcaller Magazine with this image of Haley! I love this image, and I am glad it was able to get some additional traction.

I am going to be offering a live 4 week Photoshop course for 9 people. This will be done via Google Hangouts so we can screen share and talk in real time. Lessons will be twice a week with homework in between to hit-home the material.

Cost is $150 per person and this will kick off the second week of Jan. You need to have a microphone & headphones, also a webcam is a nice addition but not mandatory.

You should have the full version of Photoshop CS6 or later as Photoshop Elements isn't going to cut it. I will also be offering Lightroom and Capture One retouching sessions as well if there are folks interested.

Note this is limited to 9 people, and this is a beginner level class. If you are interested PM me to lock in your spot. Once all 9 are full, that will be it.

I really love body painting. It releases me from the constraints of wardrobe and opens the doors to creativity like nothing else. It isn't a big deal to me that they are nude, but it is more of a type of clothing without the limits of expensive fabrics.

Model is Haley and of course Otto did the body paint. Make-up was done by Colour Law.
