Oh hey there school routine.  It’s amazing how much I despise change, yet can fall (pun intended–because puns are awesome) so quickly into a new schedule.  This Summer flew by for me–I kicked it off, photographically, with a destination wedding in Nebraska and, ended it, with Senior Portraits just before Labor Day.  (Uhm.  You didn’t…

Engagement Photos and a Mini Road Trip :: Howard Lake Area Photography

So…I’m pretty sure I’ve said it a time, or twenty–but, being a photographer is pretty cool.  Sure, like any job, there are favorite parts, and not-so-favorite parts of course; but, when you get to do your favorite part, it makes all the rest pretty okay.  This past weekend–all my favorites combined.  A favorite, long-time, friend…
