Well, I’m home and so glad to be back in my Badger State for fall color season! I returned yesterday from a lovely ten-day tour of Scotland, slept from 8pm til 3am (morning in Edinburgh!) and fed my bnb guests before heading to the Capitol for a board meeting with Common Cause, a bi-partisan group trying to restore good government and ethics in Wisconsin. Our highest priority is ending the practice of gerrymandering, and getting Fair Maps legislation passed before the next redistricting in 2020. In spite of the jet lag, I’m feeling almost normal now, getting back to work ...
I just love all the different moments from this day so muchhhhhh. From lake house, to state house, to corn field, docks, and vineyards. All parts were uniquely “them,” especially this quiet moment in this massive and glorious building. . . . #chelseamatsonphotography#lovemadisonweddings
Today is Indigenous People’s Day in Wisconsin and I’m excited to be joining people all across the state in honoring the historical sacrifices Indigenous people have made and to celebrate the social, economic, and cultural contributions these communities continue to make our states. The story of Wisconsin’s Indigenous people has long been one of resistance and resilience, however, in the coming years, I will work to ensure that the story of Wisconsin’s Native community evolves into one that includes respect and justice.
Izzie is a high school senior who slayed her portrait session. We shot inside the state capitol because she has interned there and it’s a meaningful place for her. Make no mistake , the Capitol building is dark as h-e-double hockey sticks , but that’s nothing for my #nikon 85mm 1.4 lens, it’s a work horse ... #lettherebelight
Every Saturday there is a big Farmer’s Market all around the Capitol Square. It was so fun walking around yesterday morning sampling cheese curds, fresh pie, delicious cookies — you name it. And so many festive pumpkins, gourds, harvest corn, and fresh flowers. 🍁🧡 🍂 #autumnleaves#architecture
