Lake Geneva Family Photography

The Fabulous R Family lives in Chicago but has a gorgeous home in Lake Geneva that has been in the family for years. It was fun seeing the beautiful lake and learning a little bit about the memories that were made at the picture perfect lake home in Lake Geneva while we photographed the family for their Holiday Portraits! I love kids with a little spunk and both boys were delightful! It was a chaotic, giggly and fun photo session! Thank you for the beautiful drive out of Milwaukee and into beautiful Lake Geneva for a fantastic family portrait session!

Cedarburg Family Photography: Fun Fall Photos

I love early morning photography sessions– the light is beautiful early in the morning and this morning was perfect for one of my favorite Cedarburg families. I went to their home for an on-location portrait session and used the beautiful fall leaves in their yard. Thank you for such a fun family photography session!

Miss A: I told you that you would make the blog, beautiful girl!

Love- Joy

Ceviche: yummy favorite of Shoot the Moon

I’m a fan of ceviche. Its light, fresh and yummy!

When I was on a photographer retreat we had a chef come and do an interactive demonstration on Raw foods and she made an amazing coconut ceviche where the young coconut tool the place of the fish. I prefer the fish, and wanted to share my favorite recipe!

Preparation time: 15 minutes to prepare, 3-4 hours to let sit. Always use the freshest fish possible. Make the same day you purchase fresh fish.


  • 2 lbs of firm, fresh red snapper fillets (or other firm-fleshed fish), cut into 1/2 inch pieces, completely deboned
  • 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 cup of chopped fresh seeded tomatoes
  • 1 serrano chili, seeded and finely diced
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • Dash of ground oregano
  • Dash of Tabasco or a light pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Cilantro
  • Avocado
  • Tortillas or tortilla chips

During the marinating process the fish will change from pinkish grey and translucent, to whiter in color and opaque.

Serve with chopped cilantro and slices of avocado with heated tortillas for ceviche tacos or with tortilla chips.

Serves 4-8.

Milwaukee Family Photography: Sibling Photos

When a family with 5 children comes into one of the Miwaukee area photography studios, I always hope for a smooth photo shoot with 5 happy little kids! This darling family was not only amazingly well behaved but full of sweetness and smiles! They were coordinated beautiful and were such a delight to photograph! Thank you for an amazing session!

Fun Sibling Session: Mequon photography studio

Okay! I’ve been so lucky with a series of just plain fun shoots! Its so much fun when we can play with lights, backgrounds and props. I love it!

These two fun, funky siblings (whom i’ve been lucky enough to photograph twice before!) came in for a session “just because”.

Thanks for the super amazing fun session! I can’t wait to show you the rest of your fantastic images.

Miss Clare: Milwaukee Photography Session

Clare is so much fun! She came in to let me just PLAY! Play with new props, lighting techniques and learn about how the light falls in our new studio! She even tried on a vintage hat during our photo shoot at the new Mequon Photography studio.

Thanks for the fun afternoon Clare!

Aubrey: Milwaukee Teen Portraits at the Mequon Photo studio

I’ve photographed Aubrey 3 times now, and each time we have so much fun at the photography studio. Her dad always treats her to hair and makeup by DeRiah Salon and Boutique and we have fun playing with different hair and makeup looks. Alyssa is the amazing makeup artists and hairstylist for our shoot today! She always comes in right around her birthday (and our birthdays are only 2 days apart which is fun!) Today she brought in her iPod and we jammed out and tried tons of new stuff in the Mequon photography studio. When I was setting up lights and said I was going to try some new stuff, she said “Each year you try new stuff, how come?” To that I replied… “Because you let me!” It’s totally a blast when clients come with great clothes, and let us just try fun new stuff. The results can be unexpected — and amazing!

Aubrey is involved in pageants and her fun, rocker edge sets her apart! She has won several “Miss Photogenic” awards both locally and nationally, and its my honor to be your portrait photographer!

Thanks for a super fun session!

Coming soon to a case near me: iPad

Okay.. I love my iPhone. I live for apps. I love my mac computers. I love walking into the Apple store. Everyone is so helpful, and nice and cute in their matching, witty Tshirts. I am hugely excited for the iPad. It will be my “portable” computer/ebook reader/movie machine while I travel and will help keep me connected. You can bet I will be in line (early) at the apple store the day they are released!

So my birthday is this month (the 26th!) and today in the mail I got all kinds of little birthday goodies. $10 gift certificate for Victoria’s Secret (new jammies here I come), Free birthday drink at Starbucks (non-fat with whip mocha anyone?) I also got a $20 gift certificate for Vera Bradley! How sweet is it that they spoil their peeps! I go into the store and right in front of me is a darling little “Mini Laptop Case”.


I go to the apple store, hop on the computer and find out the specs of my soon-to-be-new iPad and voila! Perfect Fit.

This now sits on my desk waiting for its new little buddy, arriving in approximately mid-to-late March!

Check it out!
