Football begins

Posted in North Carolina, On Assignment by erinbrethauer on August 21, 2010

Well, the high school football season officially started tonight.  It’s nearly 11:20 pm and I’m still in the office editing and posting my gallery from the game’s festivities.  Phew.  Football games mean long nights every Friday for the next few months.  In order to prevent me from slipping into a boring shooting routine, I’m going to make a few rules for myself this season.

My first rule is that every Friday night I will post what I like to call ‘levitating cheerleader’ photo.

Hopefully they’ll get a little more interesting but this is what my tired brain plucked out.  More floating cheerleaders to come…

Until then, here are a few more from tonight:

Lake Logan Triathlon

Posted in North Carolina, On Assignment by erinbrethauer on August 7, 2010

I’m so glad that I got to cover the Lake Logan Triathlon today.  Although it’s painful getting up so early (5:30 am, ugh), seeing the morning light pour over the lake made it all worth the trip.

You can see more photos here.

Jon’s birthday

Sparklers, party hats, friends and a dragon pinata…what more could you ask for on your birthday?

Goodbye Milwaukee…hello world!

Posted in Friends, Home sweet home, Portraits by erinbrethauer on August 3, 2010

After finishing school, getting married, and starting a family in Milwaukee, my good friends Megan & Zach and their lovely children are pulling up stakes and moving on to bigger things in DC and beyond.  I know everyone in Milwaukee is already missing them and I am no exception.

Some of my favorite memories of going back home to Milwaukee involves spending time with them.  Watching Megan & Zach lovingly grow their garden, fix up their house, interact with their community and raise two beautiful kids over the years has been so enriching.  Their example sets high standards in my life and I’m so lucky we’re friends.  While the Milwaukee chapter is closing, I’m so excited to see where they’re going to end up (so I can visit).

Here they are in front of their Milwaukee home at the end of June during my last visit.
