Ha, look at that mischievous face. Nothing like being greeted with a snowball by your child in a sundress. .

Setting up your own bakery is hard work when you're 4. #lotsofbubbles #3towelslater #montessoriathome #montessorikids #practicallifework #madisonwi #letthekids #letthembelittle #illuminatechildhood #momtog #childhoodunplugged #wisconsinphotographer
Oh this boy has the cutest little smile, and look at that hair! Something sweet to brighten your snowy spring morning, because you know, neverending winter. #letthembelittle #letthekids #dearphotographer #illuminatechildhood #madisonwi #familyphotographer #madisonphotographer #babieswithstyle
We bought tulips today because as my son said, "I think the Earth forgot it's spring." Can you spot the 6 inches of snow falling outside that window? Oh, Wisconsin. #aprilsnowstorm #wisconsinspring #madisonwi #outofthemouthsofbabes
Yesterday, over breakfast, the sunlight was pouring into the dining room and in the rush if getting ready for school I had to grab this photo of my 7 year old. Do you ever just look at your littles and wonder how they got so big and amazing? His gorgeous green eyes are still there, that sandy blonde hair is the same. But the baby chubbiness is going from his cheeks, he asks incredible questions, he can do division and read. He still takes his time in the morning. Slow down time! #seven #illuminatechildhood #childhoodunplugged #dearphotographer #iPhone #greeneyes #risingtidesociety #madisonwisconsin #madisonphotographer #boyhood #magicofchildhood #momtog
The results are in for the international photo contest! Out of 413,000 photos from 175,000 entrants, this photo was voted top 10%! This is just a fraction of the amazing women at the @madisoncircusspace who participated in the Vagina monologues  last year, directed by @luellashapiro. It was so incredible to be a part of this beautiful show. For my first time submitting work to anything, I'm in awe at the work out there, beyond thrilled with the results, and deeply inspired for the upcoming year! #shootandshare #shootandsharephotocontest #aerial #vaginamonologues #feministart #theater #madisonwi #madisonwiphotographer #wisconsinphotographer
Baby rolls are the best! Sometimes the happiest babies are the naked babies!
Grandparent visits are the best! What a lovely way to spend a sunny, beautiful, Saturday! .

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Happy Saturday! How are you celebrating the weekend? We’re enjoying a birthday party later and the kids have some serious engineering projects happening right now with pillows, blankets and cardboard. I’ve been told it’s a kitty home and little is the kitty.
“When you love and laugh abundantly, you live a beautiful life.” One of my favorites from the fall!

One of my absolute favorites from my work in the Montessori classrooms. Listening for the ocean in a seashell. #montessorieducationweek #montessoripreschool #madisonwisconsin #smallbusinessphotography #mompreneur #illuminatechildhood #risingtidesociety
