I was asked by a family friend to capture her husbands return. The experience left a lasting impression. It was exhilarating to see all of the support these men had when returning from what I could imagine to be an exhausting but brilliant adventure. Here are some of the photos that I took from that night.

Miss Amazing 2019 https://www.raimagery.com/blog/2019/3/miss-amazing-2019 So it has been way too long since I posted a blog! This is the third year I have volunteered for Miss Amazing. I get such joy from spending the day with them, and over the years getting to really know each girl. It is so inspirational to see these young girls/women have no restrictions in doing what they want to do. It reminds me to keep the spark in my life. To try new things and let nothing stop my dreams. There isn't any thing that I can't do, and these ladies prove that. Keep on reaching for the stars girlies, you all are truly AMAZING!

Wisconsin's Miss Amazing Pageant https://www.raimagery.com/blog/2018/5/wisconsins-miss-amazing-pageant I was lucky enough to be asked to do Wisconsin's Miss Amazing Pageant for the second year. This was an awesome experience for both the girls and myself. Any role you play in this program will leave a lasting impression. These girls prove that nothing will stop them from living life to the fullest. I highly recommend doing anything you can to be apart of this program in 2019!

These are a few of my favorite things https://www.raimagery.com/blog/2018/4/these-are-a-few-of-my-favorite-things Some one recently asked me what my favorite thing to photograph was. Although one would think I would say puppies, that is a very close second, children are my absolute passion to photograph. Working with kids there is a moment in time that world seems... well better. They remind me how to enjoy the moment and live life with a full heart. Here are a few of my fav's so far this year.

Newborn Hospital Photography "Fresh 48" https://www.raimagery.com/blog/2017/9/newborn-hospital-photography I'm excited for my journey into newborn photography. After having a few hospital shoots, I can say that I am absolutely in love with this. It is breathtaking to be able to capture the first days of family. The moment can come and go so fast, and before you know they are grown. To have this moment capture lets one regain memory of what we felt when we blinked. Looking forward to seeing how far I can grow in this.

Alessa's Newborn Photos https://www.raimagery.com/blog/2017/9/alessas-newborn-photos When I found out my niece was going to have a baby I freaked out! My brain went into automatic artsy farsty mode. I have to admit that I may have gone a little crazy buying props for when she was here.(Tim gave me a stern but understanding talking to...ooops) I had the pleasure of doing her fresh 48 photos as well, which pumped me up even more to do her newborns. I cant wait to capture her milestones and watch her grow.

2nd shooter for 8/26 wedding https://www.raimagery.com/blog/2017/8/2nd-shooter-for-8/26-wedding Hi!

Thank you for reading my babble :). So... it's been about a year since I decided to make the big push for photography. As many of you know, this also includes the adventure of being a 2nd shooter for some pretty classy weddings. I wanted to take a moment and share with you some of the shots from this past wedding. While I feel that there is a lot more to learn, I am so excited on how much growth I have made this year. I am blessed to have Paul Manke as a mentor, and am excited to see where another year will bring me.
