Wisconsin Woman

Nearly every wedding I photograph I will meet at least one wedding guest who is determined to turn the tables - and grab a photograph of the photographer. If you have never seen me in action then you'll just have to take my word for it when I say I'm pretty quick on my feet... so I usually do a pretty good job of dodging these wedding paparazzi. When I got the call from Wisconsin Woman magazine asking me if I would be interviewed for a young entrepreneurs article I'm afraid my feet must have fallen asleep. I was genuinely touched and definitely jumping around excited when Nicole Relyea (the writer of the article) contacted me. However, the thought of posing for a photograph never even entered my mind. When I learned a photograph would be needed my stomach dropped, my heart raced... what a surreal experience to be the one in front of the camera! Going through the experience just as my clients do... wondering if she got anything good, wondering if I look as bad as I think I do, wondering how I can bribe her to photoshop all my flaws to perfection! :) A big thank you to Amy Lynn Schereck for being so easy to work with. And my apologies to the employees of Cub Foods... they must have thought I was a crazy woman when I finally saw my article on the stands... dancing around with excitement in the midst of the grocery carts! Sorry, just couldn't contain myself!! So have you all seen the article yet... what do you think?
