Happy New Year!
As we get ready to turn the page on 2018 and get ready for 2019, it has been a truly life-altering year for us in both our family and our business!
After 17 years in California, Nicki and I moved the family to a small town just east of Madison WI called Lake Mills. It’s a quaint, and picturesque lake town that is 20 miles east of Madison and about 50 miles from Milwaukee (and only 2 1/2 hours away from Chicago). My life has come full circle — and we are thrilled.
It’s a move that brings us to the same town as my sister Mary, her husband Scott as well as their daughter Stefanie, her husband Jeremy and their two little girls. We wanted our kids to know their aunts, uncles and cousins and be able to head over on their bike. Living in the same town was important for that connection.
Plus we’re also 25 miles from my old hometown of Columbus, WI where my Mom and my older sister Peggy live.
Next year is full of exciting plans and dreams for family and our photography business.
We had our offer accepted on a lovely home in Lake Mills, just around the corner from Mary and Scott so that is going to be a big part of our January and February.
I’ll also continue my teaching and speaking on behalf of Sony and am excited about upcoming trips to NYC and Arizona in the first quarter of the year. Building an online community that supports wedding and portrait photographers and helps them grow as photographers and as business people is also on the horizon.
Wedding photography here in the Madison area (as well as Milwaukee and Chicago) is going to be a big part of the focus of my photography business in 2019.
It already got off to a superb start with a winter Chicago wedding at the historic and boutique Blackstone Hotel this past weekend. I will be sharing more of that work in the coming week.
