Sayulita Paradise | Milwaukee Family Photographer in Mexico

A few weeks ago we traveled with the entire family to paradise. Also known as Sayulita, Mexico. Four years ago, my sister, Allison and her husband, Jeff, recited their vows atop a Sayulita bluff surrounded by friends and family and the crystal blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. We fell in love with the little surf town back then and decided to return to the same lovely beachfront house for a weeklong stay in honor of Mark’s 40th birthday and our 10 year wedding anniversary. We were lucky enough to have Allie and Jeff and my new nephew, Sammy join us as well as my mom, and our dear friends, the Carr family, who have 3 children, the same ages as ours.  It was the perfect vacation and the only complaint we had was that it was of course, too short, with us all asking ourselves on the eve of our return home,”Why aren’t we staying for two weeks?” and  ”Why don’t we do this every year?”

On the first night, we ate dinner at Sayulita Fish Taco, an open air restaurant with the most delicious, you guessed it, fish tacos. This was our view overlooking the main square.

We were all tired from a super long day of travel, after waking up at 2:45 am to get to the airport, but no one was quite as sleepy as Tyson.:)

We had the most amazing views of the sunset, right from our beachfront patio.

One morning, I walked into town along the beach and stumbled across this set-up for a wedding that we saw happening later that day. What a beautiful place to get married.

We spent a few hours one day at a secluded little beach called Playa de los Muertos. We traveled there by golf cart, thanks to the hubs, for being our chauffeur.

We celebrated cute little Camryn’s second birthday…

…frolicked on the beach at sunset…

…and made wishes on lanterns.

It was the perfect vacation.

Weiss Family | Milwaukee Maternity Photographer

Over the past two years I have had the absolute pleasure of working with the talented Andrea, of Andrea Weiss Photography, both behind and in front of the lens. So often, as photographers, we get stuck behind the lens so much that we end up with tons and tons of family photos that are missing one very important family member–Mom. I am so lucky to have formed a friendship with Andrea and have one of my most treasured family photos because of her. Normally, we just hand over the images to one another without spending much time editing, knowing that the other one can handle that end of the deal…but this time I simply couldn’t resist. Here she is in front of the lens, glowing and GORGEOUS, with her adorable baby bump and the rest of her beautiful family… Andrea, I hope you love these as much as I do! XO

O’Desky Family | Doctor’s Park Family Photos

After months of correspondence and planning and rescheduling due to weather or illnesses, I finally got to meet Lauren and her family a few weeks ago at Doctor’s Park.  Lauren, I hope it was worth the wait! Your kids are adorable….and so funny that it seemed after just a few minutes we had discussed dozens of people we know in common. Such a small world in Milwaukee, isn’t it? Happy summer! I hope you love your images.

Betsy and Jeremy | McKinley Marina Engagement Photographer

Betsy and Jeremy are getting married. This fall at the Milwaukee Yacht Club. And I will have the pleasure of documenting the affair. A couple weeks ago I spent a gorgeous summer morning with these two down in the marina on their boat and got to know them a little better… and after spending the morning with them I can honestly say that I can’t wait for their wedding. They are laid-back, genuine, salt of the earth kind of people and you just can’t help liking them.  I enjoyed every minute of our morning together and I just love how relaxed and in love they look here. That morning, we chatted about love and life and about the details of their wedding day, which from the food, to the flowers to the beautiful backdrop of Lake Michigan’s blue waters, sounds absolutely incredible. This summer, as Betsy and Jeremy are counting down the days to their September nuptials, I will be too.
