This little beauty just turned ONE and I had the pleasure of taking her photos in honor of her exciting milestone. The poor little sweetie was too tuckered out and a little sick from her big birthday party the day we had scheduled to meet, so we met at Klode Park for a do-over a few weeks later, which turned out SO perfectly. The weather was beautiful (albeit a little chilly, but this IS Wisconsin) and little miss cutie pie was happy as a clam! I just loved capturing her sweet and adventurous personality and her adorable new-walker-hobble. See for yourself, her mama and daddy sure are lucky to have this smile to brighten their world.
I really enjoyed meeting this beautiful family in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward a couple weeks ago. When Deanna first contacted me she thought it would fun to pick an urban location in honor of their oldest daughter’s new found love of our city. It turned out to be the perfect sunny spring morning for a family session and the perfect setting to document their oldest daughter’s freshmen year of college and first year as a Milwaukee resident. This is just a snippet from our session…they were all so easy to photograph and the camera loved them so it was impossible to choose which images to share here. 🙂
A few weeks ago I got to meet this sweet little guy and his family at their home for a Lifestyle Newborn Session. His proud big brother and big sister are absolutely enamored with him and did the best job of showing off how sweet and gentle they are with their baby bro. I truly love the part of my job where I get to meet such lovely families…and while sometimes its only for an hour or so, I always feel a special sort of connection, being blessed with the task of documenting some of their most precious family moments. This time was no different. Krissy and Peter, it was so great to meet you and your darling children. I hope to see you again one day as your family grows. XO
Last week I had the pleasure of documenting Erik’s momentous marriage proposal to the love of his life, Bridget. The plan was simple: Bridget’s best friend was in town for just a few days and suggested that Bridget and her beau meet her for dinner at the Harbor House overlooking the lake. Part of the surprise was that Bridget’s and Erik’s parents would also be waiting there to celebrate with them after their big moment. Erik had recently taken up an interest in photography so he told Bridget he’d like to make a quick stop on their way to dinner at O’Donnell Park in front of Milwaukee’s iconic Art Museum to take some photos of her. Little did she know that when she had her back turned, Erik was planning to get down on one knee and I’d be there to capture it all. Moments like this one are, undoubtedly, my favorite part of my job. I love LOVE…so getting to capture moments of heart-racing, blissful excitement and pure joy are what make my heart sing. Congratulations, Erik and Bridget. Being IN LOVE sure looks good on you two.
Two weeks ago I met one of my favorite families, who I have photographed more times than I can count, at the Lincoln Park Conservatory in Chicago. It is such an idyllic spot for a family session, with the flowers providing a gorgeous backdrop for this beautiful family. I actually met Lisa and Matthew and Lisa’s parents here years ago when they were still a family of three! I am honestly amazed by the easy breezy nature of the session every single time I photograph them–Lisa and Matthew, when I tell you that you make my job SO easy, I am not kidding! As usual, it was such a pleasure to document your family milestones. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your friendship and loyalty to me as clients. Love you guys and your gorgeous kiddos!
