Reilly Images Wedding Photography is in April’s Brava Magazine!!!

One of the challenging things about running a very small business is the need to figure everything out for yourself.  So, it is so wonderful to receive recognition that you are doing good work and taking beautiful photos that are meaningful.  The very best recognition that we get is the wonderful, caring words of thanks from our customers.  We are always so grateful when our clients take the time to send us notes and emails about the pictures we have made for them.  

We are also thrilled when our photography is featured in publications!  This April, Brava Magazine, is all about weddings.   We couldn’t be more proud that two of our wedding photos are highlighted in the issue!  Last fall, we had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Patrick and Danielle’s wedding.  They had a beautiful fall wedding, that featured Danielle arriving in a horse drawn carriage and patrick arriving across from across the lake in a canoe.  Brava Magazine choose to focus on unique wedding entrances and included our wedding pictures of Patrick and Danielle.

Be sure to pick up a copy of the magazine for yourself, the entire wedding issue is wonderful.

Welcome to the World Emma! A Very Special Newborn Photo Shoot

Sometimes work just doesn’t feel like work. That is how I feel when I get to photograph the little tiny new babies. And, oh my goodness… have you ever seen such a perfect baby!?! Little Emma’s photos were taken when she was just 6 days old and she couldn’t have been a more perfect little model- full of perfect newborn squishiness!

Jenna and Collin decided to wait to see if they would have a boy or a girl and I think Jenna was a little surprised to find out that they had a little princess! Luckily, they had little Emma’s name picked and ready to go (I’m a little partial to the name “Emma” as that would have been our son’s name if he had been a girl). Besides the absolutely perfect subject to photograph, Jenna had some fun props to incorporate into our newborn photo shoot. I hope you enjoy checking out a few of their photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Congratulations Jenna and Collin! You have a absolutely beautiful little girl. I can’t wait to share the rest of your newborn pictures with you!

A Bridesmaids Dress Alternative – Designer Rentals

Image A wedding the culmination of all of the details the Bride and the Groom have dreamed of-  The color palate, the flowers, the invitations, the tuxes and the brides maids dresses. If you have had the privilege of standing up in a wedding and you are a woman, you also likely have bridesmaids dresses sitting in your closet that you “would totally wear again”.  How many of us have REALLY been able to use those dresses again?  Not to many. Now, there are a few alternatives to the traditional bridesmaids dress. Vow to Be Chic allows brides maids to rent their dresses, saving hundreds of dollars.  How does it work?  You simply check out their selections, two months before the wedding they send out the dresses to ensure sizes are correct with pre-paid return shipping.  One week before the wedding the dress arrives in the mail, you wear it and return it.  Just like the guys. Another option is Rent the Runway.  Here you can rent designer gowns.  You aren’t limited to just bridesmaids dresses, you can also find wedding gowns, mother of the bride dresses, as well as red carpet looks.  Rent the Runway sends you two sizes based on your measurements.  When the big day is over, you simply mail the dresses back. What do you think?  Would you consider renting your dress?

Molly and Kassidy – Our Class of 2015 Model Reps

It seems like winter is a permanent fixture these days.  Yet the calendar keeps flipping over and spring is right around the corner.  For us it means that the photography season is gearing up and ready to take off.  We are really looking forward to our Senior Portrait sessions in 2014 and we are happy to introduce our Class of 2015  Model Reps.

Molly is a Junior at Middleton High School  and has played on their volleyball team since a freshman.  After her Senior year Molly, is hoping to head west to California where she will earn her nursing degree or become a Physician’s Assistant.  We loved working with Molly!  Confident, smart and beautiful!  We know that the future holds great things for Molly and we are excited that she is one of our Class 2015 Reps.

This was our second time photographing Kassidy.  We met Kassidy, who is a Junior at Verona,when her sister Allison came to us for her Senior portraits a couple of years ago.  So when we decided to have model reps this year, we thought Kassidy was perfect for the spot.  After graduation she plans on heading to either UW Madison, or LaCrosse where she plans on studying business.  I think you can agree with me that both Molly and Kassidy look stunning as our models and we wish the best to both of them.  We are really excited to do their official Senior portraits once the nice weather finally hits Madison.

We love shooting weddings.  But my favorite time photographing is when I’m doing senior portraits.  It makes me feel young again to hear seniors talk about their future, work, boyfriends and girlfriends.  I also get a little jealous that they get to go off to college the following year.  I know I had fun! I took a lot of time finding a location for Molly and Kassidy.  It’s easy to get stagnant when you have a studio; same backdrop, same chair, same cheesy special effects.   So we use real locations, places where people live their lives; like in parks and near lakes, and inside buildings.   During our search we decided to look at the Madison Overture Center.  I was excited to come upon the Promenade Lounge which was clean, bright, and modern with great light. It was a perfect place for our shoot.  I was able to rent the space and the Overture Center staff was extremely helpful.

The photo shoot was awesome, and Molly and Kassidy did a phenominal job.  We love the images that came from the shoot and we are excited to start our Senior Sessions.

Juniors!  Believe it or not summer will be here soon.  We want to you to have senior photos that you are going to love!  You work hard and you deserve senior photos that are as great as you are.  We work with you to find the perfect locations and clothing to make your photos everything  you have imagined.  We are easy-going and fun to work with.  Call or email us to set up a free consultation.   See our Senior Photography here.

I’ll Love You Forever, I’ll Like You For Always, As Long As I’m Living, My Baby You’ll Be

When our babies are little, the days can seem so very long. There is the constant stream of feedings, diapers, and laundry. To those who don’t have kids, it doesn’t sound like much, but being a Mom is by far the hardest job I have ever had. But, in the blink of an eye, you look over your shoulder and realize just how quickly babies grow. It seems like just yesterday Esme joined our family, and she is already getting around almost anywhere she wants to go and keeping pace with her crazy brother.

Nothing reminds me of just how quickly things change as being around a newborn. I am so very lucky that I get to see several of these tiny babies every year and to photograph some of their first moments.

Kinley Viola was welcomed into the world by her beautiful parents, Kristin and Jay on December 30th. I don’t think Jay or Kristin would describe her arrival as easy, but then the best things in life don’t ever seem to be easy. Kinley has been keeping her parents and her puppy siblings on their toes.

This little one has a ton of personality and is absolutely beautiful. Jay and Kristin are simply amazing parents!

Congratulations Jay and Kristin! Thank you so much for allowing me to take photos of your beautiful little girl. You both are great and Kinley is lucky to have you both as her Mom and Dad.

Now that we have been in the photography business for a while, we are seeing more and more of our brides get pregnant and have cute little kicking babies! We photographed Jenna and Collin’s Wedding back in 2012 and we were so happy to hear that they have a little one on the way! Meg and I started the shoot with a couple of images at Collin and Jenna’s house. We love using window light so it was a great place to start. From there we made our way outside on what was probably one of warmest days we have had all winter. Considering just how nasty it has been this season we really lucked out on a nice *warm* day. We headed out to a photography location staple, Burke Park.

Jenna and Collin are due March and we cant wait to see their little one make their debut in front of our cameras. Check back soon so you can meet the little one in a couple short months. Hopefully it will be a little warmer by then!
