Just a photo I snapped of my brother BJ at a recent wedding with his sick camera holster. We make a pretty sweet team if you ask me and can check out our wedding portfolio over at his site Light.Soul.Photographics
Our ninja photography style cannot be messed with and his perspective is AMAZEBALLS!
Long gone are the warm days of summer but looking back at this mini lifestyle session has me tickled. Check out some featured photos from the Clowes Family taken in Rotary Botanical Gardens in Janesville.
Sundays in our house are family days so I thought I would post about an adorable one from a late summer lifestyle mini shoot. Cynthia is great behind the lens herself but sometimes it’s a hard thing ALWAYS being the photographer. Her boys both had big personalities and I was pretty happy with the shots that came of this session. More photos from this shoot at Cynthia & CO.
The Fest of Ale in Janesville, WI celebrated it 10th year with a sold out crowd and over 100 beers available for tasting. A lively crowd and great bands set the tone for a wonderful event with proceeds going back to the local Kiwanis group donating the funds to various community endeavors. Our custom beer themed dessert bar included cakebites (Red Velvet, Chocolate Guinness, Triple Chocolate plain as well as some topped caramelized bacon) and super yummy treats (mini pumpkin cupcakes w/ creamcheese frosting, sugar cookies, peanut butter cookies + homestyle fudge brownies) from our friends at The Afton Market. As always, not only were the sweets a hit but our display was unexpected and wowed the audience.
Last year, Monroe Elementary in Janesville, WI donated 1,372 pounds of food to help the hungry in their community through an event called Delivering Bags of Hope.
Below you’ll find a simple collection I created for one of my clients who is a part of this initiative. She wanted something to “thanks” to the kind individuals who generously donated warehouse space this year to process the bags. Follow the link above to see how you can take part.
Last year I had the pleasure of sampling our cakebites with some of Rock County’s finest chefs at Chef’s Cooking for a Cause; a charity event organized by the YWCA and The Janesville Country Club. As a participating Chef, we are asked to donate an auction item and I gladly handed over a certificate for a custom dessert spread for up to 100 people. Here is a fun display for a 50th birthday bash that came out of it.
I was given a decorative napkin to pull my inspiration from. Black and white with lots and lots of bright color inspired me to create a fun loving, rainbow color-filled diplay. We added assorted candy filled containers and even some gold dusted chocolate lollipops for extra flair.
I really appreciated the non-typical approach for the event!
Call me a nerd, but anything to do with zombies is right up my alley. So when Hedberg Library in Janesville contacted me about doing desserts for their Friday the 13th Zombie Prom I was beyond ecstatic. I had expressed interest in being a part of the event so I’m very thankful the staff took me up on my offer.
Zombie head cakebites aren’t the easiest creations to whip up so I changed my initial design plans and went with more of a creepy direction. Forked eyeball cakebites and others that warn of danger all clad in the prom’s colors were a hit! Added industrial decor touches, and my fave sign where I channeled my inner Shining added to the creepy factor. I also made sure to add some prom flair by incorporating dried red roses and a mirrored platter.
30 days in and this boy is a heartbreaker already!!! Check out this mini session with this uber cute babe!
Our team had the pleasure of adding our flair to the local Bridal Fair alongside Couture Celebrations. It’s always wonderful to meet other wedding vendors and ALWAYS a pleasure to meet the “couples to be”.
This mini dessert spread was inspired by the Couture Celebrations logo.
Just a quick look at a shot from my mini lifestyle portrait session over the weekend. I’m working with Brenna and Chad to create custom Save the Date cards as part of their personalized Wedding Invitation Suite. Can’t wait to share all our projects!

First captured this little boy while he was in his mama’s belly. A month later and he is as healthy as can be. Look out for his collection coming soon…

I’m no stranger to preterm labors…after all, every single one of my 3 boys were born early. It must have been her motherly instincts kicking in because Anabel managed to squeeze a maternity photoshoot in just before baby Landon arrived making a 4 week early debut. Here’s a few shots from her mini session…
It was a fantastic day debuting with Couture Celebrations (Janesvilles Premiere Party Planners) at the Rock County Bridal Fair. I have the pleasure of sitting alongside Scott and Cheryl Cramer as a design consultant as well as providing services as one of their quality vendors. Here’s a sneak peek of the mini dessert spread compliments of yours truly.
I don’t always gush about venues I’ve worked at, but The Elk Lodge in Janesville WI in my book, is by far the best. It isn’t the fanciest, or most beautiful place but the appeal lies in their delicious food and their staff that always goes above and beyond. I was fortunate to cater the Storms’ wedding dessert table here last December and the appreciation must be reciprocal because I was invited back for their Valentines Day dinner. I didn’t really know what to expect with an older crowd, but I was pleasantly surprised at what a fantastic time I had. Good people, good food, drinks and Elvis made for a memorable night.
I started building this display by imagining a romantic picnic for two. I laid sparkly silver fabric, my rice paper umbrella and two of my favorite crackled angled rim glasses down. I added and took away pieces until eventually the display emitted a romantic feel. This specific table was dressed only with my cake truffles in Red Velvet, Luxe Triple Chocolate and our holiday specialty flavor Champagne. Take a peek!
Special thanks again to the amazing staff over at the Lodge! For more information visit them at http://www.elks.org/lodges/home.cfm?lodge=254 or come see us at the Janesville Bridal Fair on March 4th at Craig HS.
With anything that is new, there are lessons to be learned. Growing a project as part of an inspiring and talented group was a journey and I cant wait to see what next year brings already. Thank you to Elizabeth Hough, Yuri Rashkin, Teresa Nguyen and Judith Moriarity for you relentless efforts in showing the art community love. Check out some other photos of JAC Awards Micellany…
