up north!

Will and I have had the best time this last week up in northern Wisconsin at my parents house for deer hunting opener and hanging out! I spent some time catching up on some work stuff, hanging out with mom, drinking some wine, catching up on sleep, laughing, watching mom cook, eating the amazing food, chilling with family that came to visit, and walking around in the woods with the men.
Below are some outdoor surprises I found while helping Will put up his tree stands.

And my hunter! Can you see him?

Here is the new beaver dam we found on the property. Wow, have they been busy beavers! The pond to the left used to be a small stream.

Beaver food!

And here are Lucy and Cleo my parents lovely dogs. Mom and daughter team that rule the Reichert house. The "girls" as Dad calls them continue to make us laugh. They have such personalities, how can you not love them?

And going outside you must wear your orange! Just kidding, we don't make them wear hats ... we were just fooling around.

After a busy day of entertaining me, it was time for a nap!

Here is one of the clearest nights we saw. This is a great example of why I love my D3 camera. This picture below was taken outside at sunset with no tripod! Amazing. I continue to be in awe of what this camera can do! Thank you Nikon!!!

Thank you Mom and Dad for hosting us for the week. We had such a great time.
We love you!

josh & jenny

Here is Josh and Jenny's engagement session at the University of Minnesota campus. Even though the weather wasn't the best we still came up with some great locations and some awesome shots. I love some of the architecture we found on campus. These first two pictures are some of my favorites.
Josh and Jenny were super flexible and willing to endure some snow flakes to get some great pictures. Their session was a great example of getting great pictures even if the weather isn't what you would of hoped it would be on your day.
Thank you guys for being open to walking around and finding some great locations. All the best to you both. Can't wait for next years celebrations in Cable. Em

the rohrer grandkids!

May I introduce the 4 Rohrer cousins. Mia, Max, Sam, and Eli! Wow, what an impressive group of young people. They clearly know what a camera is and are able to totally be themselves when it is pointed at them! I truly had a great time with them. It's not often 4 kids will let me follow them around for 2 1/2 hours without a huge melt down. They did a great job!
And I have to mention how adorable they are! They all have such beautiful eyes and smiles. Someone in the family must know something about teeth!!! Potential models for sure!
Donna, Thank you for being one of the first people to get me interested in photography back in high school. Your talent and creativity truly inspired and intrigued me enough to get me to check out what photography was all about. I love you and am so grateful that we are friends.
As always great to see you all again and I can't wait to meet the next group of cousins!
All my love, Em
