Calm Before The Storm | Personal Post

This weekend marked my last weekend of relaxation before a craziness is upon me! I am unbelievably blessed to say that starting next weekend I am booked EVERY weekend! Whether it’s engagements, portraits, or weddings I will have a camera in hand every Saturday & Sunday for the next month! Thank you to everyone’s support! My heart swells when looking at my calendar.

So with that said Michael and I took the weekend to indulge in a few things we love. Friday night was a dinner date and we went out to enjoy some cocktails with friends! I’m not a big socializer but it felt good to come out of my comfy little hole and hang with my bestie and some of Michael’s closest buds! 🙂

Saturday included a family session with my new 35mm 1.4L and I have to say I am in LOVE. I can’t wait to put him to the real test during a wedding or engagement session but I am excited about the portraits that are going to come from that.

That f/1.4 is a little too shallow for a selfie but the color and crispness out of that bad boy is perfect! 

  After the family session we headed to Mac’s which might be my favorite place ever. Too bad it’s all the way on the East side (Us west siders rarely travel over there. West side is the best side! Woop!). We walked over to Starbuck’s for Michael’s first PSL of the season and I grabbed a latte! We spotted this ahhhhdorable Wisconsin mug and had to snag it! Crazy how quickly you ditch your home state (Illinois) and pick up pride for another one! So thankful to be living in such a beautiful city and state.

After that we headed to Milwaukee for a Foster The People concert. Arriving 5 hours too early we wandered around a mall and then went to Norstrom’s Rack & friends I’ve got to tell you.. It’s dangerous.. Madison is getting one in about 3 weeks and my bank account is screwed.. 
Foster The People was fantastic though! We jam out to them quite regularly and it was such a great concert. They sound amazing live and it made my heart happy. It was such a fun weekend spent with one of my favorite guys & I’m feeling refreshed and ready to take on the rest of my season! 
Happy Monday friends! Can’t wait to have pretty pictures to share with you all!
