Paige was a great subject for my lens. She slept almost her entire session. This is a peaceful shot of her dreaming in my studio.

This little cutie pie has grown up behind my lens. What started as a baby shower gift turned into a priceless collection of images for the Gilles family. Here Gabe is laughing it up at Doty Park in Neenah. The Gilles' stopped by on the way to Milwaukee for a fly by photo session in the park. We were fortunate to have a beautiful day and a happy baby. To see more of this session see my photo stream on Flickr by clicking on the photo.

Leslie and Mark - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Follow this image for more frames from my most recent wedding. I had a great time photographing Leslie and Mark's wedding on Saturday. This was my first wedding as a second shooter in this "photojournalistic" style of shooting. I worked two cameras at a time, shot over 1,300 frames, twisted one ankle and got some great shots.

I love the subtlety of his smile in this photo. This was taken when he was about 6 months old.

Eion in the Summer

Children 2006_6.jpg, originally uploaded by Ardent Photography.

This photo was taken last year. I love the innocence of Eion smelling the flowers. I wanted to post it because I am getting excited for summer, especially since I will spend it this year with my own son!

Happy Summer Everyone!

Maternity Session

This beautiful prego momma is a bride from the 2006 wedding season. I was honored to do her maternity photos. This is Jessica at 34 weeks. Can't wait until her little one is here to do some newborn shots.

Self Portraits

I did a self portrait session the other night. I needed some updated photos of myself for a new bio page. I was accepted as an associate photographer with company out of Chicago/Milwaukee. I will be getting assignments in and around the Milwaukee area. This will allow me the opportunity to photograph weddings in new locations as well as work side-by-side with other photographers. I'm very excited.
