Rural Wisconsin is untouched by modern ailments and political damage - at least to the eye. It is locked in a better, older era where a hard day's work means a good return, a good meal, and good community. Life is just a little bit less stressful out here, compared to the city culture just minutes away, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I always feel so lucky getting to photograph my clients weddings because it’s such a huge day! So with that being said, I’m going to post a bunch of pics from Heather and Dustins wedding because hello, it was awesome!! So if you see multiple posts today, Enjoy 😂❤️
And we just caught the last of the sunset for part two, yay!

Y’all! These fall engagement session are HOT! I got the pleasure to work with this amazing family again! It was about 6 months since I seen them and it makes me see why I love what I do! To have clients that love you as much as you love them, priceless! •
This time, not only did I get to capture their beautiful family... I got to share their engagement with them! All of my favorite things in one session! 🥰 My heart is full! Here are some sneaks from their session! •
Session 3/4 this evening! ❤️
Shout out to supportive sisters! To the sisters that cheer you on. The sisters that have your back. To the sisters that will cry and celebrate with you every step of the way. I’d be lost without my sister. It’s funny, at 15 if you said my sister would be one of the most calming, grounding, forces in my life, I would have laughed in your face. But she really is. She’s gotten me through the hardest year of my life and I’m forever grateful to her for all her support! 🥰 Love you big sis!
Looking for the cutest way to hand out @hichewusa candy this year?
How about making colorful pumpkin and ghost bags? Just paint white paper bags with acrylic craft paint, then draw on ghost and pumpkin faces with a black marker.
Fill them with your favorite flavors of individually wrapped Hi-Chew candy (my favorite is sour watermelon) and they are ready for Halloween night! And if you use promo code KailoChic20 you get 20% off your favorite flavors! #HiChew#Halloween#ad
This splash of color was to die for! Funny enough, for this shot I was able to use the direct sun for lighting. It was low enough, and "soft" enough to "cheat". This is great, because I was breaking one of my rules anyway (letting the background dictate the shot). Admittedly I saw the background / composition and wanted to use it. I just got lucky that both this, and the lighting all was working in my favor (which it typically never does). :-)
Anyone else feeling the effects of the season change? Or was it just too much thanksgiving dinner?

"All is well". It's a simple sentence with a powerful message. It's actually one of my favorite affirmations and I'm talking about those and this dope pin on the blog today. Do y'all use affirmations? What are some of your favorites?

Kyle has two therapy sessions today, so I’m taking the day off... kind of. There’s some exciting things happening behind the scenes and I can’t wait to share them with you guys! There probably won’t be a full day off for me for awhile... but I’m exciting to be working on something from the couch today! 💕

If you had one piece of advice for new parents, what would it be? For me it would be to enjoy all the snuggles you can because once they're busy toddlers they don't seem to understand the concept of "snuggle" and you miss it so much! Oh and to new dads: she now always has the trump card. 🤣 I loved getting to capture our dear friends as they settled in as a family of three. Next time we are forcing a complete family picture though guys... like alllllll the fur kids. More on the blog! #linkinbio#jilldotyphotography#newborn#babygirl#girlmom
Today's blog is near & dear to our hearts but it's a lot more than just finding out about baby #2 . It's about the Lord's provision in a season that we didn't expect!!
We hear things like this said all the time, “He knows what we need before we even know what to ask!” But rarely do I trust that this is true. My prayer when you read this blog, is that you would see a Father who loves us & cares for our every need. He is our Guide & Sustainer - To God be ALL the glory!
Thank you for all of your love & kind words about Baby #2 . We are excited for this new chapter in our family & so happy to share with you our newest little blessing!
